Something for every young traveller

This year, families will be spoilt for choice with three brand new academies, allowing children to learn a new skill and excel in whichever sport they choose. In association with world-renowned childcare service, Worldwide Kids Company (WWKC), we will be relaunching our popular Football Academy, and introducing a brand new Dance Academy. For those passionate about water sports, following last year's sucess, Sani will be offering a Sani Marina Sailing Academy in partnership with the Nautical Club of Thessaloniki. 

Sporting academies are the perfect way to keep children active and entertained, as well as allowing them to learn and perfect a new skill, making Sani Resort the ideal choice for kids and parents alike this year.

Sani Dance Academy

Sani Resort is excited to be working in partnership with the WWKC to launch a brand new Dance Academy, available from 1st July to 3rd September 2016. The academy aims to enhance every child’s holiday by providing the opportunity not only to learn to dance, but to gain confidence, enhance creativity, and above all, form friendships. With a range of styles from Latin, to hip-hop, modern to break-dancing, these classes will appeal to every young musical fan, whatever their tastes.

Not only a fun creative outlet for the little ones, the Dance Academy boasts a professional standard of teaching, with each dance professional holding an IDTA Associate Freestyle Dance Teaching Qualification - internationally recognised and respected. With all sessions including an introduction, warm up, basic routine, group work, and optional performance, the academy caters to both the sociable and the shy, to allow every child to get the most out of their classes.

The Dance Academy is open from Monday to Saturday, with the following sessions each day:

Morning: 10 -11.30 (4 -6 years old)

Midday: 12 -13.30 (7 -11 year olds)

Afternoon: 16.30 -18.00 (12 -17 year olds)

Guests can pre-book online or register in resort. Cost: €15/£11.75* per session per child (6 for price of 5 = €75/£59*)

Sani Football Academy

For the aspirational “David Beckhams” Sani Resort will once again be offering its hugely popular Football Academy. For children aged between five and fourteen years old, these daily two-hour camps are another fun opportunity for children to pick up a new skill and make lifelong friends in a team environment at Sani. With dedicated and inspiring coaches, the sessions promise to be both fun and challenging, teaching footie enthusiasts everything from dribbling, to defending, to the all-important goal shooting.

At the end of each day, special medals will be awarded to children who have performed well during sessions, ensuring a real sense of achievement and encouraging new football fanatics to take the sport back home with them. WWKC Football Academy operates exclusively at Sani Resort from May to August.

Sani Football Academy runs 4 separate coaching sessions every day except Sunday, as follows:

5 – 6 years old – 10:00 – 12:00, Monday to Saturday

7 – 8 years old – 10:00 – 12:00, Monday to Saturday

9 – 11 years old – 17:00 – 19:00, Monday to Saturday

12 – 14 years old – 17:00 – 19:00, Monday to Saturday

Cost: €35/£27* for an individual 2 hour session of professional football coaching


Sani Marina Sailing Academy

With a 7km white sandy beach, and access to the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea, Sani Resort enjoys optimum conditions for sailing beginners. The Sani Marina Sailing Academy, created in partnership with the Nautical Club of Thessaloniki, invites all children between the ages of six and seventeen to learn the ropes with their 10-hour intensive sailing courses.

With lessons held both on dry land and offshore, kids will be sure to pick up the basics right from day one, and will truly earn their Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course. Many parents also see the summer holidays as the opportune chance to learn to sail, as the Med can offer warmer weather and calmer seas, and the Sani Marina Sailing Academy enjoys a reputation as one of the best in the business.

 Sailing Session Dates: Tuesday-Thursday, Friday-Sunday

Session hours: 10:00-13:00

Meeting venue: Sani Marina Amphitheater

Cost: €250/£196* per child per 10-hour course. Family (2+ children): €225/£176* per child per 10-hour course

Whether young holidaymakers are keen on learning the hippest dance routines, practicing their goal scoring and goal saving, or taking that first step to sailing the seas across the globe, Sani’s Academies offer something to please every young guest this year.
