We know that the healthy, physically active student is more likely to be academically motivated, balanced, alert, and successful. Sports at Inventure Academy follows best practises from around the world, using the latest pedagogy and coaching tools to empower learners to create a habit of lifelong health and fitness and provide an opportunity to learn to excel at sport at all levels. It teaches children to respect their bodies, make decisions, be positive and work with others.
The program for the different age / grade levels is as follows:
A daily dose of sports is compulsory for all our students till Grade 4. Grades 5 & 6 have four periods per week and Grades 7 to 12 have 3 sports periods per week. Children must put back their own equipment, inculcating responsibility and discipline. Being ‘prepared for life’ is part of our vision; and our comprehensive and outstanding sports program, taught by a highly qualified Sports Department, incorporates global best practices.
The program focuses on building locomotive and manipulative skills, introducing young learners to sports and fitness and the fundamental skills of team and individual sports.
