Life at the Academy- Athletic Activities
The athletic facilities (court, race ground, indoor gym and swimming pool) and the infrastructure that the Academy provides, enable the naval cadets to do any sport they are interested in on a daily basis. Some of the sports the cadets can do are gymnastics (both free style and with apparatuses), track sports, navy obstacle course, swimming, sailing triangular course and high-sea sailing, rowing, shooting, fencing, basketball, volleyball, tennis. Moreover, they can learn and perform traditional dances.
It goes without saying that the Academy attaches great importance to sea sports. The indoor swimming pool, sailing ships, rowing boats, the three high-sea sailing ships and the daily close contact with the sea enable the naval cadets to live moving and thrilling experiences. The teams of the Hellenic Naval Academy not only participate in the yearly games held by the Armed forces but also in the national sailing races.
