ACS Athens Boys Basketball 2017
ACS Athens Girls Basketball 2017

The 5th International Youth Basketball Tournament took place this past weekend with the participation of teams from Italy, Serbia, Great Britain and various regions of Greece.  The competition level was high and we had exciting games throughout the event!

Our Girls and Boys Varsity teams both played in the finals; the girls played against the team ESKANA and the boys against ACS Cobham.

It was an exciting afternoon indeed!

- The Girls game went down to the wire, and they triumphed by one point with the final score 50 - 49 and the spectators enjoying every minute of the game.

- Our Boys team played a tough game against ACS Cobham and there was a great deal of intensity!  The final score was 81 - 73 and the team walked away with the first place trophy!

- In other distinctions: A job well done by Ismini Prapa who was the 3-point contest winner and an all star selection; congratulations to Angelos Makras and Antonis Belexis for receiving All-Star recognition as well.

Congratulations to all the players and the coaches!


International Youth Basketball Tournament & Broadcasts, Feb. 17 - 19, 2017

Int'l Youth Basketball Tournament 2017


In memory of Diana W. Tamari and Hasib J. Sabbagh

Dear Guests:

Dr. Stefanos Gialamas It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the fifth ACS Athens International Youth Basketball Tournament!  This event began five years ago in dedication to the memory of Hasib Sabbagh and Diana Tamari Sabbagh with the idea of bringing together young student athletes from around the world to compete, but most importantly to enjoy the wonderful sport of basketball and good sportsmanship!

At this year’s tournament we will have more than one hundred boys and girls from Italy, Great Britain, Serbia and Greece.  These teams will have the opportunity to exhibit their skills at the highest level for three days.  At the end of the tournament, all the teams will be winners, student-athletes, coaches, parents and spectators.

This tournament will prove once again that the spirit of basketball and good sportsmanship brings together young people from different backgrounds, nationalities, religions and national origins.  I am proud to lead an institution such as ACS Athens, which is devoted to providing its students with a holistic, harmonious and meaningful educational experience.  Through our athletic programs, our young athletes learn to compete with respect, character and ethos, which are the essential elements for developing tomorrow’s global citizens.

I wish all of you a great experience on the court and outside the court.   Enjoy the beautiful city of Athens and visiting some of the ancient sites!

I look forward to seeing you play on the court, guided by “Fair Play” as introduced by the ancient Greeks (Εύ αγωνίζεσθαι).



Stefanos Gialamas, Ph.D

Dear Athletes and Coaches,

Annie Constantinides The International Youth Basketball tournament, in memory of Diana W. Tamari & Hasib J. Sabbagh, is now a tradition at ACS Athens.   In its fifth year, it has proven to be an event that is more than just “sports”!

It is an event that celebrates friendship, sportsmanship, effort and cultural diversity.  While the competition level through the years has reached high levels of performance, the true values of SPORT are manifested throughout those three days of activity.

Young athletes from different cultures come together to compete showing exemplary determination, sportsmanship, camaraderie, effort and persistence in reaching their goal.  SPORT is very powerful in society and through this event we have clearly seen the gains and benefits outside the playing grounds: the international exposure, the development of institutional collaborations, the opportunities for friendships among athletes and coaches, and, last but not least, the exposure to a different city and culture are all invaluable.

I urge everyone involved to make the best possible memories for themselves and for all those involved.  Keep in mind that basketball is just a game... take advantage of everything that is outside the court lines!

Enjoy your tournament – enjoy our city!
