“Sound Mind in a Healthy Body”
A quote that we, at ACS Athens, feel very strongly about and one that we try to instill in our students’ lives. This quote has certainly played a very important role in my life from the early years until now. I was fortunate to be able to earn a college education and at the same time do what I really love – play sports in a highly competitive environment. With a Bachelor of Education Degree in Physical Education and French Language at McGill University, a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and an MSc in Sports Administration I am very blessed to be able to bring my passion into my daily work!
My education as well as my college and professional sports experience as a basketball player in the country of Greece for over 20 years have provided me with the necessary tools for my administrative career. I have been involved in a number of international sports events, with the highlights being my work in the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the Athens 2004 Olympics and the Beijing 2008 Olympics, and the Athens Special Olympics 2011.
I believe that sports activities, particularly in a school setting, play an important role in the physical and emotional well being of the students and provide them with life long lessons and virtues. I can say a few words have stayed with me through my life’s experiences and they manifest themselves through actions: effort, respect, motivation, sportsmanship, pride, and discipline, just to name a few. I believe the essence of these words are the building blocks for one’s success.
We, at ACS Athens, emphasize their importance through our sports programs.
We provide a number of sports activities starting at a very young age all the way through High School aged participants; from interscholastic sports teams to recreational programs which are open for anyone willing to experience a physical activity.
Our students are provided with tremendous opportunities by which they grow physically, mentally and emotionally. We believe that the implementation of all of the athletic programs is matched by no other school in our region and we are very proud of everyone’s efforts.
Please take the time to look through what we have to offer. We hope to see you throughout the year. If you have any questions or would like to meet with us, let us know. I , along with the entire Athletic Staff, will be happy to assist you.
