Research suggests that sports has the capacity to channelize youth energy to positive outcomes and provide development opportunities, as well as promote the learning and application of life skill such as adapting in every environment and developing team spirit.
In Gurukul we students practice sports on regular basis and we are more active and healthy. Being involved in sports activities help us build a better immune system to fight diseases and also it is helping us in building and improving our confidence levels.
Here in Gurukul we choose one game every month wherein students practice the game for one full month and at the end of the month, we have exhibition matches for all age groups and the winner teams are rewarded. So in short students learn 8 to 10 different games throughout the year from which they identify their talents and it helps to choose their passions in life.
In last few months we had 4 different games like Marathon running, Kho-kho, Basketball, Handball for girls, and Football for boys.
