Sporting Culture at MIT Gurukul the why and how of it

The holistic development of children takes place through a set of experiences, both academic and extracurricular. We realise that as a parent you want your child to achieve their true potential and strengths in all aspects of their profile. As a leading IB syllabus school in Pune, we do justice to your aspirations by putting together outstanding sporting facilities on our campus and by hiring some of the most qualified and professionally trained coaches to mentor the students. Among the best residential schools in Pune, MIT Gurukul has a top-notch sports grooming culture and sports facilities that complements our academic rigor and ensure that our students have access to state-of-the-art sports equipment, arenas, and the best in coaching to hone their sports talents.

Our sporting ethos is based on the principles of perfecting one’s talents, developing team spirit, honing healthy competitiveness, and enhancing leadership potential. Thus, along with the basic coaching in sporting expertise, we have also made yoga and meditation an integral part of our holistic approach.

The sports facilities on our campus include a 400 metres athletic track, tennis and basketball courts, an international standard size football court, cricket and hockey fields, and an Olympic size swimming pool. Special facilities for gymnastics and athletics are also part of our sporting infrastructure. Our indoor sporting facilities have additionally helped students to become champions in billiards, snooker, table tennis, badminton, yoga, and aerobics, and they have gone on to bring laurels for our schools through winning tournaments and competitive events at the national and international level in them.

MIT Gurukul’s sports gallery is filled with moments of pride as we look at the hundreds of pictures of our students lifting trophies, donning medals, and holding certificates of merit proudly. We have beaten the best sports teams from across India and overseas, including those of the top schools in Mumbai, Delhi, UK, and the USA. Students from our school participate in both individual as well as team-based sports competitions equally well. We couldn’t be prouder of our excellent coaches who have year on year refined the sports abilities of the students and motivated them to outstanding wins. Specialised professional coaches are also engaged along with the regular sports faculty, a nutritionist for the sports nutrition requirements for students, and a physiotherapist to take care of our students’ wellbeing.
