The parents can also be a part of this program by observing/monitoring their child during the activities, as well as performing, a few of the activities along with them. Additionally, the program also includes activities to keep the children mentally active with sports quizzes (SLAM), puzzles (Brain Games), as well as provide recommendations, for sports-specific inspirational movies that the children can watch and enjoy.

Commenting on this initiative, Saumil Majmudar, co-founder, CEO and Managing Director of Sportz Village said “It is extremely important to keep our children fit and happy during this trying time. Through the ‘Play At Home’ program, children will not only be fit, active, healthy and happy but also would get an opportunity to do fun activities along with their parents.”
