Amitzim: Sports! with Nivonim Buddies
Every day, adat ha-Amitzim has a great Chug Sports (sports elective). Many times, the chanichim (campers) are to be found on the baseball diamond, with a friendly game of kickball or softball. To make this athletic perek (period) even more enjoyable and social, some of the Amitzim chanichim are teamed up with chanichim from adat ha-Nivonim through the Buddies program.
Rosh Sports Adam Offit (see bio below*) not only coaches but participates in this Chug. Adam builds a great rapport with the chanichim that enhances their athletic skills and fitness, and serves as a very positive role model.
Here are our Amitzim & Nivonim buddies in action.
Adam Offit, Rosh Sport.

Similar to many Ramahnicks, Adam is an avid Ultimate Frisbee player and has been playing since a young age.
