What can be learned on the ground cannot be learned in the classroom" At DPS International School, we lay a strong emphasis on sports and physical development. Our sports curriculum is planned and designed for students to develop and enhance skills like strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility, control, balance etc .through inter-sports tournaments every year .Sports today has also evolved as a form of entertainment and also offers promising careers. We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of sports events at inter-school, state, national and international level. Every student is encouraged to join at least one school sports team. The P.ESports teachers/ Sports Coach we employ are young and energetic with a good amount of expertise in sports and provide coaching for sports like Athletics, Cricket, Badminton , Kabaddi, Handball , Vollyball etc. We have weekly achievable goals for the different skills required for a particular sport and train students accordingly. Intersection matches are conducted every between classes every two week. For students to know the benefits of the sports they play, they are informed about the body parts and muscle development in playing each sports along with game knowledge.
Activities like Marathons, Races, Long Jump etc are all a part of Athletics which boost the morale of our students to try harder with better preparations everytime they perform. These activities stretch their abilities and enhance their stamina, muscle tone and have a number of physical benefits.
This sport develops a child's wrist strength and teaches them agility. This sport is one of the earliest sports taught to the children.
Volleyball is a sport that requires teamwork and coordination. Children learn to work in a team, take responsibility and trust their teammates.
Basketball adds on to the development of a child's mind, tolerance, coordination and most importantly imparts a sense of rigor. Like any other sport, even basketball counts for a lot of practice and dedication.
Every child's fantasy begins with being the next Lionel Messi. Football is the most popular sport and every child must have that experience. We have dedicated football fields along with guided tutoring.
- During a standard cricket match each team has a turn at batting, attempting to score runs, and at fielding, attempting to prevent runs being made. The team which has scored the most runs at the end of the game wins.
- Players bat in pairs and attempt to score runs by hitting the ball to the boundary rope or by running between the wickets. They can be given out if the ball hits their wicket, a fielder catches their shot before the ball bounces, or their leg prevents the ball hitting the wicket (knows as LBW or 'leg before wicket').
- The fielding team nominate a bowler to bowl a six-ball over. Once they have completed this then someone else on the team must takeover. An innings will continue until the batting side have lost ten wickets or a set number of overs have been bowled.
