Episkyros is a soccer education provider created out of passion to provide soccer education and help kids become student-athletes. Teaching kids about soccer is our goal. We believe that soccer is art and we want kids also to see it as art. But this perfectionism is not our only plan. We want to help them advance in their education too. Our logo encapsulates our dual target with the latin phrase Mens Sana in Corpore Sano. Hence, in many occasions, we will relate soccer to educational activities and, especially science and mathematics. We aim to make kids understand that seemingly unrelated areas of human activity are actually related for those who understand the ideas at a deeper level. We will always strive for this knowledge at a deeper level.
