Athletics Activities

For many years, the After-School Athletics Program has been an extension and supplement to the Physical Education program of the Gymnasium and Lyceum. At the end of the school day, students have the opportunity to do the sport of their choice and, at the same time, to have fun and get to know each other better. The After-School Athletics Program includes 12 different activities – sports and, with the guidance of specialized coaches – Physical Education teachers, students learn the techniques of each sport. Especially for the After-School Athletics Activities, you will have to submit a Medical Certificate. Please note that the Health Form that is submitted for the morning program does not cover a student’s participation in these activities.
The After-School Athletics Program is carried out by the Deree College Athletics Club.
