ICSK has always been remarkably supportive in the field of sports. It forms an integral part of the education process.  The students of ICSK are always encouraged to take part in various sports activities, and football is definitely one of them. For years, ICSK has been champions in football, and this year was no different, but better!

Days upon days of grueling training sessions and unbreakable passion, honed the skills of the footballers of ICSK. Each player was in his best form, and it’s all thanks to the patient and strict training from the expert coaches and the imperishable will power of the young footballers. For the last month, the players along with their coach worked intensely in different grounds, enduring the scorching heat and unstable climate, with just one goal in mind, that of victory.

Sports help to build character and teach the importance of discipline in life. It inculcates a respect for rules and allows the participants to learn the value of self-control. It gives the players an opportunity to know and test themselves, stripping away their personality, letting the white bone of character shine through. It sparks the beginning of something beautiful. It is a journey of self-discovery and discipline, of pain and gain, victory and failure.
