~Authors Saumil Majmudar & Vijay Krishnamurthy provide Comprehensive Toolkit for Fostering Vibrant Play Environments for Children in schools, homes and communities ~

Mumbai, India, April 09, 2024: In a world where technology often competes for children’s attention, Saumil Majmudar, Co-founder, CEO & MD of Sportz Village and Vijay Krishnamurthy, a Sports Research Scholar and an Executive Coach have released their highly anticipated book titled “Get Kids To Play – An EduSports Toolkit for Parents & Schools Leaders”. This insightful work delves into the crucial aspects of encouraging and enhancing children’s play experiences, offering actionable strategies for parents, schools, and communities.

“Get Kids To Play” strategically targets two key decision-making groups – parents and school leaders. Combining research-backed strategies with practical solutions into a comprehensive toolkit, the authors empower these stakeholders to influence various factors affecting the quantity and quality of play, while also primarily overcoming barriers to play for children. With a focus on inclusivity and tailored experiences, the book aims to revolutionize the way we approach holistic child development through play.

Saumil Majmudar, shares his thoughts on the book’s release and its relevance, “In an era dominated by screens and sedentary lifestyles, it’s imperative to prioritize children’s play. Our EduSports program, as the name suggests, has been serving as an amalgamation of ‘education’ and ‘sport’ for school children. “Get Kids To Play” is written leaning on our two decades of experience and learning, aiming to offer practical guidance to parents, educators, and community leaders to create vibrant play environments that nurture children’s physical, social, and emotional well-being.”

“As a Sports Researcher, my motivation for writing “Get Kids To Play” book comes from the scarcity of resources available at the community level for parents and school leaders. Plenty of literature is available about athletes and coaches at the elite level. However, the culture of playing a sport begins while the child is studying in school during their formative years, and that’s where the journey begins for kids, parents, and school leaders. “Get Kids To Play” is a toolkit that hopes to solve the challenges at the grassroots level.”, quoted Vijay Krishnamurthy.

Rahul Dravid, ex-Indian cricketer, and Indian Cricket Coach, in his foreword to the book mentions, “I am glad that “Get Kids To Play” book has been written to explore how parents, schools and communities can get kids to play more. Such collaborative effort can benefit each of us individually and all of us as a nation.”

Rukmini Banerji, CEO, Pratham Foundation also expressed her views, “Get Kids To Play” is a call-to-action for parents and schoolteachers. The book is simultaneously inspiring and useful, providing rationale, research, and recipes for strengthening the journey of children through play.”

“Get Kids To Play” covers a wide range of topics, including the benefits of play, the role of technology, creating safe play spaces, and integrating play into the school curriculum. The authors offer practical tips, case studies, and success stories to inspire readers and facilitate meaningful change in their communities.

This book is now available in leading bookstores across India and online at Notionpress.com, Amazon and Flipkart. Parents, educators, and community leaders are encouraged to explore “Get Kids To Play” to gain valuable insights and tools for fostering engaging play experiences for children.
