Here’s what our parents say about School Football Championship. “As a first time parent at the School Football Championship, I was overwhelmed at the participation and interaction between the students over football. I think getting young children to compete with other schools builds a certain level of confidence, camaraderie and a love for the game which is unparalleled. The interaction between children from diverse backgrounds was interesting to watch.While for some it was a new experience and a whole new kind of exposure, for others it was a grounding experience. But an experience, I think, every child must have when playing any sport. I congratulate Inventure Academy and the team of organizers for hosting such events which provide our children with a platform to develop essential life skills and good sportsmanship.'”

-Sonali Nikhil (Parent of Ishaan Nikhil Yathiraj Grade 3)
