About School of Physical Education, Sports and NCC

I wish as the I/c Director of the School to extend a word of warm welcome to all who read this message and especially to all those students who loves to play sports or who wants to join security forces in future.

The school was established in 2017 in response to enhance the standard of sports and to train the young students who want to join and cater their life in security forces in order to serve the country.

It has been well established that to join or to serve any of the security forces a personnel requires lots of physical fitness such as endurance, strength, speed, agility, co-ordination, balance, reaction and flexibility as well as a variety of skills such as marching, weapon handling, sports skills and many more. Keeping all these aspects in mind, the department majorly focuses on training to make the students physically fit, so that they can clear all those competitive examinations, where to clear the physical fitness test is a criteria; focuses on skills such as weapon handling and marching, which will teach them the pivotal role of discipline and control over their body, soul and mind in their life and while serving in the security forces.

Our school also exclusively focuses on the development of sports skills for all those students who want to make their career in sports or want to play professionally and ultimately, wants to bring laurel for themselves, for the university, state and for the country.
