In charge of the camp was the renowned coach Ioannis Nikolakis, holder of a wealth of championship titles and cups in Greece – and former coach of the national teams of Greece and Cyprus as well.  Nikolakis, with his long experience, joined forces with his associates and qualified coaches Ioannis Petidis, Abraham Papadopoulos, Vasilis Manthatis and Thanasis Katsigiannis, fitness coach Christos Varatasis, as well as a physiotherapist and doctor, in order to improve the performances of the young players attending the camp.

The athletes during their stay in Portaria had the opportunity to improve their personal technical skills through the long individual trainings and talks in the morning and afternoon, as well as through video analyses and tests.
