What is National Active Championship (NAC)?
National Active Championship (NAC) is an event of "FunSports" contest and workshops conducted on-ground and online by TopYa's Active Fun Academy. The objective of NAC is to sensitize and motivate our children to become physically active during their free time after school through engaging ‘FunSports’ designed by leading researchers in the field of physical education and fitness so that they acquire a healthy lifestyle for life and also excel in their future careers. NAC INDIA’s BIGGEST ‘FunSports’ inter-school Championship for today’s Generation V students (Video, Venture, Viral) leveraging gamification of sports and technologies.
Why National Active Championship (NAC)?
A school going child spends just about 8 hours in school, including travel to and from home on a normal day in a typical urban town. If we exclude 8 hours of school time and another eight for his sleep and other chores of the day, he is left with 8 hours of free time at home. On Saturdays and Sundays since schools are closed and the kid is home the entire day. What does he do during his free time at home? Most kids spend an hour or two doing homework. The rest of the time they are mostly watching TV or playing video games, doing online streaming or browsing (Screen Time) or simply whiling away time. Kids are thus largely physically inactive while at home. One way to make children physically active is to enroll them in some kind of sports. A majority of today’s youth are already addicted to gadget based video games and don’t easily take to traditional sports such as cricket, football, and badminton etc.
What is the format of National Active Championship (NAC)?
National Active Championship (NAC) is open to all school students across India. The championship is grouped in 3 Categories for School Students (based on Classes):
- Little Champs (Class I - IV)
- Rising Stars (Class V - VIII)
- Super Seniors (Class IX - XII)
Each month students will receive “5” video challenges include Instruction based “FunSports” challenges and Freestyle challenges video, for which students receive bonus scores depending upon the creativity, difficulty level and performance of the student in the Freestyle challenge video.
All categories have monthly prizes followed by Grand Finale Rewards to Best Active Students. Prizes include Certificates, Laptops, Bluetooth Speakers, Sports Goodies, Gift Coupons and Celebrities signed memorabilia.
What are “FunSports”?
“FunSports” are scientifically designed physical activities developed after extensive research by American Universities and Physical Education experts. They are fun and engaging but also deceptive and proven to induce a higher level of physical activity among children. “FunSports” is a fun way of motivating and inspiring children to get physically active and thereby adopt a healthy lifestyle. Sustained “FunSports” among children would train them to acquire physically fit, mentally alert and emotionally balanced overall personalities as they grow and excel in their future careers.
How are “FunSports” beneficial?
A child who becomes physically active under the aegis of “FunSports”, learns to focus, persevere and self-challenge. This has a salutary effect on the child’s general performance and overall personality, leading to physical fitness, academic focus and emotional balance. Accordingly, NAC helps to transform an inactive lifestyle into a physically active one, resulting in healthier and happier future generations that are confident, intellectually strong and professionally successful.
What is Freestyle & what are Freestyle Challenges?
Any sports activity or dance performed in unrestricted style with performer's own creativity & skills is known as Freestyle. NAC allows users to show their talent by uploading any random fun physical activity every month. These activities are called Freestyle Challenge videos and players get a chance to get creative with their performance and get bonus scores depending upon the difficulty level of the freestyle and creativity.
What is a “FunSports” Challenge video?
A “FunSports” challenge video is a fun filled unassuming physical activity assigned to the student by NAC. It could be any physical game/exercise, martial art technique, ball handling, and juggling from any ball sport, yoga lesson, callisthenic body movement etc. Such physical activities tend to become a great family fun moment as well. Parents, children, and siblings start competing with each other while having fun. Example Activities: to juggle two tennis balls by one hand non-stop for a minute or to kick a ball from 10 feet away in a bucket three times in a row. These activities work in a deceptive manner. While they look short and easy to perform, students spend an average of 6-7 hours on learning and performing a new skill. Most skills lesson do not require going outdoor to practice. A majority of them can be practiced indoors only. This makes it easier for the student to adopt more physical activities even while staying indoors.
Who will review all the challenge video activities performed by students?
All the skills and activities uploaded by the students are seen and verified by an expert virtual coach who provides constructive feedback to the student on how to progress further. Young children are not specialist, they are all-rounders. They are curious about the diversity life has to offer and need a broad base of experiences for a holistic development. It is the role of a coach/teacher/parent to guide them through the proper steps that help and influence the course of their children’s development. An expert virtual coach, who is well versed with what is correct for the proper development of a child, is a necessary component of his growth.
