Our very own Sports Academy was created keeping these factors in mind and was designed in such a way that your interest in sports and the enthusiasm to share your knowledge and energy could come and spend meaningful time in the playground. Children from the nearby community come after school hours and are grouped in teams. So, along with a local coach, you can impart your training to these budding sportsmen, give them workouts and at the end of the session enjoy some refreshments with them. We hope some day these young sportsmen will proudly represent their country on an international field. Sports in a child’s life is of great importance for his/her physical development and will affect their future. We encourage you to be creative and propose different sports-related activities depending on the students’ ages, likes and interests.
