Twenty IACC basketball trainers arriving from Community Centers from all around Israel, took part in a sports delegation and visited the prestigious Olympiacos Greece Sports Club, led by the IACC's Sports Department and accompanied by the Israeli basketball coach Mr. Elad Hasin, who served as assistant coach at Olympiacos.
The trainers, arriving from various communities around Israel, met with the Olympiacos Academy basketball coaches and the team's fitness professionals, and held an exciting meeting with the senior European coach Mr. Lannis Supropoulos, who gave a fascinating lecture about the coaching methodology of a European champion.
During the visit, the participants had a one-time experience - watching the daily training of the European champions as guests of the Greek sports Club. They also attended the Olympiacos Youth Team Championship and toured the Olympic Village and the magnificent AEK Athens Club facilities.
Shai Reichner, IACC's leader of the delegation: "This visit proved how valuable the exposure of our community centers' professional teams to what is going on overseas in their field and that we should aspire to collaborate with other nations in areas of non-formal education, sports and community-building.
