The CGS Sports Association has over 250 actively registered athletes, some of whom have received distinctions, especially in the sports of fencing, basketball and football. The running of the Sports Association is important for the sporting education of the pupils of the school, but also for the youth of the region.
The goals of the Association are:
- The systematic development of the athletes’ capabilities for their participation in competitive games.
- The simultaneous development of interest, love, engagement and promotion in any legal, fair and ethical means of sport. Additional aims are the promotion of the idea of fair play, physical education and the well-being of body and mind of today’s youth.
- The training of athletes based on the ideals of the Olympic spirit and sportsmanship.
- The organization of sports competitions, seminars, meetings and events and the participation in competitions organized by third parties.
Juventus Academy Athens
Our goal is to create the best soccer school in the world!
In October 2009, the Juventus Soccer Schools launched its first exclusive international cooperation serving both Greece and Cyprus. Boys and girls aged 5-16 from all over Attica can attend the Academy at CGS. The Juventus method of instruction is a unique model of coaching in which children learn how to play soccer while developing their skills, talents, principles and morals.
It is based on:
- a scientifically defined educational framework and strict internal rules which protect children according to age.
- the selection, training and certification of coaches from the Studies Centre of Juventus Soccer Schools (Turin University, Juventus Academy).
- the regular attendance of the Juventus Academy of Turin technical team in Greece, for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the training and progress of the children.
- small groups (of up to 12 children) and instruction aimed at the physical and personal development of each child.
|As an official Olympic sport, basketball in Greece comes under the Hellenic Basketball Federation. In Greece, the federation is responsible for designing the development of the sport, including Pan-Hellenic youth competitions as well as its own developmental programme, creating regional teams for all Associations, with children aged 11-12 and 12-16 years old.
The official Pan-Hellenic youth competitions are exactly the same as those that exist under FIBA. Mini basketball is conducted under the aegis of the Associations and Local Committees (U16 Junior Boys-Girls, U18 Senior Boys-Girls Championships).
The educational value of basketball is undoubtedly of the utmost importance, because, in addition to promoting the physical condition of children, it contributes to the fostering of sociability, team spirit and self-confidence, combining sport with play. According to scientific research, the ideal age for a person’s neuromuscular, physical, mental and social development is childhood (6-15 years old). During this time, a child develops motor skills which he will utilise throughout his life. This is because, during this age, there are no major organic lesions present in the development of his neuromuscular system.

Swimming: a comprehensive fitness system!
The main goal of swimming is to improve physical fitness, increase muscle strength and endurance, reduce fat, increase both the range of movement and elasticity of the limbs, while also bolstering the athletes’ concentration and self-confidence.
The CGS Swimming Academy, which goes far beyond amateur sport for both the young and old, is now the foundation of our school for the creation of a strong and competitive team with the aim of participating in inter-club swimming meets and national championships.
Through the swimming classes of the CGS SPORTS CLUB, which cover all age groups ranging from infants to adults, the opportunity to compete through special pre-team and competitive classes is now offered in cooperation with the distinguished and experienced swimming coach Giannis Milidakis.

Learn about Baby Swimming
What is baby swimming?
It is a recreational activity involving the family in which the baby, together with one or both parents, comes into contact with water under controlled conditions. This means that, always with an adult’s consent, the trained instructor instructs the parent to teach the child, but also to play with him/her a series of exercises adapted to the developmental stage of any age.
When can I start the baby swimming programme?
The medical limit is approximately 8 weeks, which is when the navel has healed, a baby weighs 4 kilos and has been seen to be gaining weight. It is important for each parent to start when he / she feels himself / herself ready and never before.
My child was born prematurely. Can it start baby swimming?
As is the case for all babies participating in baby swimming programmes, if it weighed less than 1500 grams when it was born, it should be over 8 months old in order to be allowed to swim by its doctor.
What should a baby wear when he does baby swimming?
A swim nappy together with an elasticated type of swimming costume protects against “accidents”, although the activation of the baby’s nervous system during the lesson often helps to prevent such problems.
Should my baby be allowed to dive?
No one should do anything that does not make him or her feel comfortable. At some point when both the parent and baby are ready, they will be able to practise holding their breath under the surface of the water.
How fast will my child learn to swim?
Each child develops at their own pace, but children who commence baby swimming programmes early can swim with their heads out of the water at the age of two to three years and can swim with their heads in the water even at the age of four to six months!
How long before the lesson must it have eaten?
Infants can be breastfeed even during the lesson if they are hungry or need to feel safe. A hungry baby will not be able to enjoy his time in the water.
How long should a baby swimming lesson last?
A child under the age of three can stay up to thirty minutes in the water; it should not stay longer, because it will get tired or may begin to shiver.
How can I be on time for the lesson and my baby be in a good frame of mind?
It is good to try to adjust the baby’s routine gradually to the time you have chosen. Always ensure that you are at the lesson 15 to 20 minutes earlier in order to allow yourself time to get ready.
What does that mean?
It is very important that we and our baby have the time to take a very good shower using soap before entering the water so that we can help in maintaining a clean swimming pool.
My child is too old for baby swimming, what do I do?
The CGS mini swimming programme was designed for this very reason. A step-by-step approach to water, effortless adaptation through organized play and exercises so that the child can explore water in his or her own time while acquiring self-confidence and knowledge of the basic principles of swimming.
Lessons are held twice a week for both programmes, while valid medical certificates are required from a paediatrician for the child, from a dermatologist and a GP for the father, while the mother requires valid medical certificates from both a dermatologist and a gynaecologist.
What you need to know before the first lesson:
- A valid medical certificate from a paediatrician that the child can participate in the programme.
- It is advisable for the child to be in the changing room 15 minutes before the lesson in order to be prepared in a calm manner with his / her escort.
- The last meal should be consumed three hours before the lesson, and, if necessary, some juice can be drunk or some fruit can be eaten 60 to 90 minutes beforehand.
- In a swimming bag, we should have a towel (a bathrobe is not necessary for our swimming pool), flip-flops, soap, bathing cap, swimming pool swimsuit, goggles (optional) and a warm hat for the lesson when it’s cold.
- It is very important to wash the child with soap both before it enters the pool and after the lesson. The child can simply be rinsed with water as swimming pool sanitation is done with active oxygen and not with chlorine.
- We use the toilet before the lesson (and before the shower) and we always ask for permission during the lesson when we need to use it.
- After the lesson, it is a good opportunity for the child to consume a healthy snack (some fruit or a sandwich in our bag is perfect).
- In this programme, we combine recreation with learning. Being in a good frame of mind, both before and after the lesson, is an essential ingredient of our “recipe” for healthy and cheerful children.

Historical records reveal that fencing as a martial art or sport has been in existence for at least 3500 years. In its present form, fencing is a modern complex sport that spans about five centuries. The first fencing schools appeared in Europe in the early 16th century. The Italians, Hungarians and French were the first to create three major schools. Techniques and tactics gradually improved. In 1896 fencing became an Olympic sport at the first modern Olympic Games held in Athens. Since then, it has been included at every Olympic games. In 1913 the Fédération Internationale d’Escrime (FIE) was founded.
Fencing offers a comprehensive training of the body as well as a sense of the body, hand-eye coordination and an improvement in balance and rhythm.
Fencing is one of the safest close-contact sports. This is due to the teaching of strict safety rules during the first lessons, the specially constructed materials and rules of courtesy and respect for the opponent governing the sport.
CGS Triathlon Club
We are delighted to announce the creation of our new Triathlon Club.
Within the framework of sporting activities and in cooperation with the CGS Sports Club, the first sports section combining running, swimming and cycling is finally here.
For the very first time a Triathlon Club has been created on the campus of our school with the support of our new partner, Vasilis Krommyda, who has previously worked as a coach for the Greek Triathlon team and is considered one of the most experienced certified coaches in his field.
Today the Triathlon, the fastest-growing Olympian sport, became an Olympic sport for the first time in Sydney in 2000. The Triathlon is the ideal aerobic sport, because it does not overstrain the body but utilises the majority of the muscle groups in the body.
