Sports / Games

The Sports Committee’s primary role is to assist the school’s PE Instructors in fulfilling their goals.

It acts as the funnel to channelize communication and recommendations from the parent body to the school with regards to all activities connected to sports. The Committee works with PE instructors to help prepare the school’s inter-house sports calendar, in order to synchronise it as much as possible with the MSSA (Maharashtra State Sports Association). The Committee also works to liaise with clubs or other viable venues for tie-ups with the School to hold inter-house events for the following sports that are held annually outside the School premises:

Swimming
Athletics
Badminton
Squash
Tennis

Members also assist PE Instructors with inter-house events that are held on the school premises. There is continuous monitoring and review of all external resources currently being availed of by the School to ensure, that terms of service, facilities, communications, collection of forms, payments are streamlined as well as feedback and/or concerns, if any, are addressed.

The Committee invites or responds to new external resources for sports not already being offered through the School such as Badminton, Athletics, Cricket, Swimming, etc. and evaluates the same.

The Committee has successfully worked out an arrangement for students to go once a week to Cooperage sports grounds for PE in an effort to raise the standard of the PE programme at BIS.
