For Alkis..

Dear parents and fans of the Deree College Athletic Club,

Dear parents and fans of opponent teams,

Speechless, we have all observed the recent murderous assault in Thessaloniki, which has been added to a long list of similar cases over the years.

Apart from the measures that have been taken at times and will be taken in the future as we believe that prevention and education play a significant role in shaping healthy thinking fans, we call upon you to get the message across that sports make individuals better and do not create criminals!

If we don’t educate our children, as well as ourselves, and instill a love for sports, sportsmanship, and respect towards everyone – both friends and opponents – no matter how many measures we take, how many disciplinary actions we take, or how many prisons we make, they will never be enough.

We would like to kindly request that we treat all athletes as if they were our children at every individual or team sport competition, cheering them on, rewarding them for their effort! It is certain that such an atmosphere in the bleachers will help them perform better and be happy in the athletic environment.

The victory or defeat, as an athletic outcome, is unavoidable for one of the two teams or for the athletes in individual sports.

By giving our best effort in a health athletic environment is a victory in every game which we can all enjoy – athletes, parents and fans alike!

We are totally convinced that sports as an integral part of education, can shape our children’s character and have a positive influence on adults as well, creating better individuals and better fans.

Let’s all do whatever we can so that Alki’s bloodshed will be the last one and our behavior to comfort the unspeakable pain of his loved ones so that his sacrifice will not be in vain.

In this effort, we will be glad to welcome you to every game or competition, together contributing to a better future!

Over the weekend, the work of clearing up of the Deree tennis courts will be continued while the surrounding area of the swimming pool has already been cleared up. Also, we are monitoring the temperature of the water, which is currently at 20.6 degrees Celsius, despite the fact that the heating is operating at maximum capacity.

At this moment, difficulties are observed at the ACG soccer and track complex, which both remain covered by snow.
