EVENTS & SPORTS
At GIC, our Events are open for all students and staffs. Till date, we have various sports and events that held in GIC. The Events in the college are given purpose to inculcate the value of soft skills, communications skills and among undergraduates whilst allowing them to compete at the college level. The encouragement and involvement in the organized physical fitness programs and tournaments participated by the students are for them to value the importance of fitness in life and to have fun in the activities they participated in. Listed here are a few ways sporting events contribute to the overall development of the student:
SPORTS ACTIVITIES BUILD A BETTER INTERPERSONAL SKILLS
Being involved in sports teaches students various interpersonal skills such as patience, communication, leadership, punctuality, accountability, and teamwork that will help them not only to win a particular sports competition but also grow and achieve success in life. Besides effective communication, these interactions could help students become multi-taskers as they start to realise the importance of striking a balance between work and personal life. While playing a sport, students come across various situations that require quick decision-making. Encountering such situations not only makes students proactive but also makes them good decision-makers, a great team player, and even a good leader.
SPORTS COULD ENHANCE THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Sports not only help to shape a student’s personality, but they also have a substantial impact on their academic success. Sports teaches students time management skills and also serves as a stress reliever when they are overburdened with coursework and deadlines. To maintain a healthy mind, students should take a break from their daily routine. Students’ ability to think, study, focus, and contribute to academics is enhanced by such beneficial breaks.
SPORTS HAS THE POWER OF REVIVING PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH
It is critical to be mentally and physically fit. Students can improve their mental health and learn to balance their scholastic and extracurricular commitments by taking up athletics as a pastime. It allows them to be emotionally strong. When you participate in sports, it reduces stress and makes you feel better about yourself. GIC is striving to provide a holistic growth for our students; therefore, in addition to superb facilities, we have dedicated student support programmes that promote students’ mental well-being.
SPORTS MIGHT CREATE POTENTIAL CAREER OPTIONS
Like other people, students who are investing their time in a sport that they enjoy which has the possibility of becoming a job is a dream come true. Participating in sports during their college years allows individuals to develop their interests and skills. It is possible that a particular sport will attract student’s interests to the point where they decide to pursue it as a career. The sports sector is booming in today’s world and is predicted to continue to do so in the next few years. Sports as a profession is difficult. However, if one is enthusiastic about it, it can lead to a bright future.
