Veteran' Football Tournament 2016

After successfully organizing rink football tournaments for Men (Open Category) and Women, Sportnicians - The Sports People turned their guns on the Veterans.

A tournament for men who are 40+ in age but can give the youngsters a run for their money anytime!!

The veterans turned on the magic on the football turf!! It's exhilarating when you watch a 66yr old pass the football to his team mates and defends the ball with extreme ease. Indeed such was the scene at the recently organised Summer Cup 2016 - Men's veterans rink football tournament which was planned, coordinated and executed by Sportnicians -The Sports People.

We definitely live in the youngistan world but these players aged between 40 years - 66 years showed that old is definitely gold and especially when the team that won the tournament is named Golden Gunners defeating Golden Boys, it's a sone pe suhaga moment. After successfully organising the open and women's rink football tournament, Sportnicians - The Sports People were once again able to pull out these breadwinners of their families from their daily hustle bustle of life and get them on the turf to play a game to which they gave it their all in their younger days. The smile on their tired faces...the cheering from their families and the kids wanting to be like their Dad's is proof enough that you don't need a big league to play a game...all you need is a small push, a holding hand that takes you back to the game you love and lets you build memories you'll cherish forever. Sportnicians -The Sports People are glad that they were able to do that for all the veteran teams that participated and stood true to their promise of catering to your every sport need.

The tournament was officiated by qualified and experienced referees. The referees ensured that all matches were played in true sportsmanship spirit. All the teams and players accepted all the decisions given by the referees which ensured that the tournament concluded very smoothly

Children are our future, and the skills learned and relationships fostered at the summer camps throughout the country are often life-changing, stepping stones on the road to adulthood. Children come to camp from all walks of life, eager to learn, yearning to make new friends, ready to take on new challenges and discover gifts they didn’t know they had.

The Summer Camp at Karjat was a mixture of outdoor and indoor activities which will help the child to raise their bar and take up new challenges towards self-discovery and skills enhancement. The summer camp will also help the child to see things from different perspectives while having his or her own perspective towards it. As discovered by great behavioral scientist “LONGITIVITY OF ANY EXPERIENCE IS VERY LOW UNLESS APPLIED” in simple words it is called learning through Experience.
