Department of Physical Education

 

The Department of Physical Education and Sports organises several events during every Academic Year. Starting with the Cross Country Race which is open to both students and staff, it regularly conducts Inter-Departmental competitions for the students to spread greater awareness about the importance of sports in healthy living and in building happy interpersonal relationships. Friendly competitions are also organised for the teaching and non teaching staff.

The Department provides training and coaching in athletics, basketball, fencing, cross-country, kho-kho, chess, weightlifting and taekwondo. Training in these games enables the students to prepare well for participating in Inter-College, University, Inter-Varsity, State, National and International level competitions. Participation and winning in these competitions help the students in getting admission into the professional courses in the field of Physical Education.

The Department also manages NSO activities where training is given in aerobics, yoga and taekwondo besides the organisation of athletic events and activities, races and demonstrations. The Department also organises lectures, workshops related to fitness, health and well-being.

The Department takes pride in organising the Annual Sports Day. It maintains a well-equipped Gymnasium and organises fitness camps for the fitness conscious students to keep themselves healthy and fit.
