High fives. School spirit. Team pride.
School-based sports programs can bring out noticeable positive reactions and behaviors in teens.
In addition to social and emotional benefits, sports can bring about intangible benefits to the school and the community as a whole. Sports create important opportunities for students to contribute to the school community, which may cultivate an increased commitment to, or identification with, school and school values.

In India, the domain of sports is largely unexplored by many, until now. This is mainly due to the
social opinion that all students are supposed to pursue a professional degree and then move on to finding a job in the “usual” fields of engineering, medicine or software. A plethora of opportunities go untapped as a result of this mindset and a career in sports is one such
opportunity most children miss out on.

Sports-friendly infrastructure at PICT
Exercise, yoga, sports and other physical activities play an important role in keeping the student active and energetic. Moreover, sports in PICT Model School is not “extra –curricular”. It is a part of main stream academics which cements the foundation for a career in future. Hence, we have dedicated time for physical training and sports such as basketball, football, tennis, etc.

At PICT we consider sports as an equal career option as any other.
At PICT, we strongly believe that a career driven by passion is sure of attaining the success everyone aspires for. Hence, learners at PICT are encouraged to perform and develop in a field of their individual interests, be it rocket science or fine arts, engineering or sports.
Sports as a whole is now being considered a lucrative career option in India. The best way forward in this direction is to pick an activity of interest and begin pursuing excellence in the same.

We ensure that all students are actively engaged in physical activities keeping in mind its health, social as well as emotional benefits. Post this stage, for those who may develop an inclination towards a certain game, are entirely supported, trained to perform better and achieve excellence in that game.

There are multiple career options in sports and playing professional is one of them – albeit the most glamorous one. Students at PICT are encouraged to pursue their passion which brings out in them the drive to over-perform and excel in that field as a professional endeavor.
