Department of Sports & Physical Education

Sport has been an integral part of all educational system and lays the foundation for all our activities. As an natural instinct, sports/play is in the roots of each and every individual. Even the first formal education starts with a Playway school. It is the basis to bring health, happiness and satisfaction for one and all. Sports bring together humanities across the world and promote peace and prosperity.

SPORTS FOR ALL’ is the unique initiative and movement for celebrating National Sports Day as the National Sports Festival as a stepping stone to fulfil its vision. Taking this universal movement forward the department of sports and physical education is progressive to carve a niche with its policies, programmes and pedagogical innovations for sports performance, infrastructure development and active participation of sports. The department of sports and physical education has significantly achieved a landmark in terms of spots related infrastructure, apparatus, organisation of tournaments and procedural tasks.

On taking charge as Director of sports and physical education on 13th July, 2018 my priorities has been identification of   emerging challenges by regular interaction with College directors of physical education, students and support staff regarding sporting activities to overcome the  constrains.  Regular maintenance of grounds, Gym, enhancing participation of students in inter-collegiate sports, organisations of inter-varsity tournaments are my priorities. I opted to expedite the training and coaching programme with all possible resources such as appointment of NIS qualified coaches, international standard equipments and facilities etc.

Department of Sports and Physical Education organizes games and sports in the affiliated colleges and university campus to raise the University teams across various disciplines. The department has gained national recognition because of its hi-tech sports facilities and excellent achievements at the inter-varsity, national and international level. Special training camps, inter-college tournaments and inter university tournaments are orgnised every year by the department. I am happy to declare that  47  teams (men and women) of the university participated in inter-university tournaments during the academic year 2019-20 with an involvement more than 6000 students in Zone, Inter zone and Intercollegiate tournaments.
