'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 higher level of physical activity among children.

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 FunSports challenges can be performed anytime – anywhere, This makes it easier for the student to adopt more physical activities even while staying indoors
