Academy

Ιn all European countries, that are well organized in football, every club which respects its history and is interested in its future has substructure sections, which are called football academies. By this term, we mean all the levels that a young player should attend, in order to end up to the professional team.

For these countries the existence of the academies is obvious and therefore the clubs pay to the academies, the same attention they do to the professional team. SKODA XANTHI FC could not be an exception and works on this for many years and produces players.

SKODA XANTHI FC probably is the top club in Greece concerning the production of players , who are aware of the matters of football , from a young age and also is one of the clubs that realized the importance and prospective of the academies.

During 90’s the Athletic center of SKODA XANTHI was built, and consists the base of the whole club. It is located 8 klm far from the city of Xanthi and includes 7 fields, swimming-pool, restaurant, dressing – rooms, physiotherapy rooms, gym and entertainment rooms.
In the service of the Academies there are 10 trainers, doctors, masseurs, physiotherapists, dietician and psychologist. At the same time it managed to be established in A’ Division’s Championship and to be counted as an important club.

The results of the Academy were obvious pretty soon, since “key-players” were distinguished, who played to top clubs in Greece and abroad and won the EURO 2004 in the Stadiums of Portugal.

Players as Vasilis Torosidis, Marinos Ouzounidis, Nikos Kostenoglou, Christos Maladenis, Zisis Vrizas, Andreas Zikos, Stelios Venetidis, Christos Patsatzoglou, Spiros Vallas etc. have started their career from SKODA XANTHI FC.

The trainings of the young players take place in the Athletic Center of the club from well-experienced trainers. The children train hard during the week and they participate to Championships organized in Greece and abroad.

SKODA XANTHI though, does stay only in the football education of the young players, but also makes sure that the players attend properly their education in school. If a player has a lot of absences in school or shows an inappropriate behavior, he is excluded from trainings and if he does not comply with the rules of the club, he is permanently expelled.
