Parikrma Champions League: Sports Workshops

After successfully hosting the first two editions of football tournament, the Parikrma Champions League was mainly about the players on the field. This time the Parikrama Foundation is organizing four sports-related workshops - Sports Management, Sports Commentary, Sports Entertainment, and Sports Journalism.

The primary aim of the workshops is to invite students to explore different career options in sport and then gain some practical experience during the tournament. The workshop will be followed by an apprenticeship modeled practical exercise during the tournament itself. For example, Charu Sharma will give a talk on sports commentary and the children would then be given a chance to sit in the commentary box of the stadium! 

This workshop is ideal for those still passionate about sports but not necessarily on the starting 11, the journey with sports shouldn't end when they graduate. Also, since there are new careers emerging in the world of sport, the students should be privy to exploring these professions. 

The workshops will be held on 31 August and 1 September at the Bangalore Football Stadium.
  • Sports Management: Saturday, August 31 - 2pm - 3pm
  • Sports Journalism: Saturday, August 31 - 3pm - 4pm
  • Sports Commentary: Sunday, September 1 - 2pm - 3pm
  • Sports Entertainment: Sunday, September 1 - 3pm - 4pm
The workshops are free of charge. To register please contact Dhruv : 9591907596.
