The students and gymnasts were welcomed to the facility by the Deputy Minister of Sports, Lefteris Avgenakis, who had the initiative for these actions, which will last three weeks in total (until 21/10).

Mr. Avgenakis urged the children to familiarize themselves with the facilities and have fun, mentioning that “within the program you will have the opportunity to meet and test your skills in beach volleyball, beach handball, beach soccer and beach basketball, spectacular, beautiful sports that will also take place in the Mediterranean Coastal Games. We invite you to “embrace” the sand sports and the installation of Karteros, but also to have fun in these actions that take place as part of the events for “One Year Before” the Mediterranean Coastal Games.

In a related post on Facebook, the Deputy Minister of Sports notes:

“The Karteros Beach Sports Center was flooded with children’s smiles, as 919 students from 5 Primary Schools, two High Schools and a High School from the prefecture of Heraklion, as well as a Primary School from Lasithi (from Kritsa) started and met today at morning at our National Coastal Sports Facilities in Karteros. As part of the “Sports Weeks” events, which will be held every day until October 21, the children were guided around the grounds, got to know the courts and gathered together in the stands of the central stadium, where they were informed about the Mediterranean Beach Games “Heraklion 2023” and the beach sports, which in 11 months from now will be held primarily in Karteros and we are working every day to make them the best in history.

I talked to them about the sports they will come into contact with (Beach Volley, Beach Handbal, Beach Soccer & Beach Basket), I urged them to have fun and I thanked the Primary and Secondary Education Directorates of Heraklion for their cooperation, as well as their 45 Physical Trainers Educators who actively participate and play a decisive role in all this action. Then, the children went through all the sports and enjoyed themselves! They learned about their rules, shot, ran and scored!

The facilities of the Karteros Beach Sports Center are open to everyone and for the next three weeks the visiting program – with free transport – concerns students of the 4th, 5th and 6th grade of Primary Schools, as well as Middle and High School students.

I would like to thank for the support the Regional Director of Secondary Education of Crete, Emmanuel Kartsonakis, the Director of Secondary Education, Yiannis Karagiannidis, the Director of Primary Education, Emmanuel Beladakis, the Office of Physical Education of Heraklion Prefecture, the Commander of Heraklion Traffic, Stelios Karakoudis, the Deputy Mayors of Sports of the Municipality of Heraklion, Kostas Vardavas and Development Planning – Digital Transformation, Integrated Rural Development and Tourism of the Municipality of Heraklion Giorgos Sisamakis, the Organizing Committee of the 3rd Mediterranean Coastal Games “Heraklion 2023″ and its president, Nikos Dabakakis, as well as the president Lefteris Zervos, the executives and employees of the National Sports Center of Heraklion and of course the leading marathon runner Maria Polyzou”.
