After our many years of presence in the organization of baby-child and children’s bathing programs, music-kinetics, infant and infant gymnastics, the time has come to welcome you to the new classical sports program. With a strong sense of responsibility and respect, we continue our vision of growing happy, social and healthy children.

- Running(speed, half-strength, endurance, obstacles).
- Jumps (jump in height, jump in length, treble jump, and jump on pony).
- Shakes (shotgun, hammering, discus and javelin).
- Composites (pitch and decimal).
Classic Sports at Family athletic club «Υδρία»
The aim of our program is the multilateral training (total mobility) of children (infants-children-adolescents) that leads to their all-round development so that the trainees become first “athletes” and then specialized in a sport or sport.
In two wonderful places with rich, specialized sports equipment, at the premises of the private school of Greek-German Education in Pallini and at the School of Naval Experiments in Piraeus, we are waiting for you to live together an extraordinary life experience and to achieve physical, mental and spiritual integration and health. Our teaching principles are based on encouragement, respect, fitness for children, freedom, self-participation, experiential orientation, decision-making and self-motivation.
Our program emphasizes:
- the playful character, fun-recreation of children and their emotional support,

- in the development of friendship,
- in the sporty spirit as well as in the consolidation of respect and responsibility,
