IKF conducts Trials in multiple cities across India with a view to scout exceptional talent. Kids scouted from these city trials are thoroughly assessed and qualified for Pre-Finals and then for National Finals. In National Finals we invite scouts from across the globe (specially from ISL & I League clubs) to select kids from the talent scouted by us via Pan India Trials.
