I propose to bring reforms in NSO activities in the institute for the betterment of the sporting culture and the students in the institute.
I conducted a survey among 93 second year students and 115 first year students from NSO Health and Fitness and asked them a few questions, here is what they answered:
Question 1 - Have you been involved in any of the sports during your 1st year at IITKGP?
Question 2 - Do you feel yourself to be capable enough to be a part of NSO Sports and Games?
Question 3 - Do you wish to have fresh NSO Trials at the start of 2nd year?
NSO Sports has the potential to serve as a springboard for the students capable of getting into the inter IIT sports meet contingent. Unfortunately it has not been utilized in the best possible way by the students and certain reforms are needed in this regard.
1. Most of the students are usually disconnected from sports for the past 2 to 3 years because of intense studying for JEE.Because of their lack of practice, their talents are not reflected properly in the NSO sports trials.
2. Only after 1 week of the start of academic session,they are unable to settle into life in IIT Kharagpur.Hence,many students miss the NSO trials because of lack of awareness or not being able to spare time due to the hectic first week.
1. Lack of motivation among students to attend NSO sports activities.
2. Lack of proper attention and opportunities given to the students of NSO sports due to Inter IIT practice at the same time.
Tentative Dates for the academic session 2018-2019:
Arrival of 1st years- 23/7/2018
Arrival of all others- 17/7/2018
Tentative dates for trials- 20/7/2018-22/7/2018
Benefits of this program:
1. This way the position of a student in NSO Sports will not be guaranteed.He will have to practice and attend NSO sports classes to retain his position.
2. This will give a second opportunity for the students of NSO Health and Fitness, who have improved in their respective sport in the past 1 year or were unlucky during the NSO trials in the 1st year.
3. It will also act as a motivation for the students who are not satisfied with NSO Health and Fitness to get involved into sports and work hard in order to get into NSO sports.
4. As some students(who are already a part of NSO sports) take up different sports which they like after coming to IIT KGP or has better talents in other sports,it can serve them as an opportunity to switch into that NSO sports team.
1. The sports facilities like ground and other equipments will exclusively be available for NSO sports students.
2. The students can get the complete attention of the PTIs which will help improve their technique,build confidence and feel motivated to attend the session.
3. We can have practice matches involving only the NSO sports students of that sport in this time slot.This will help in development of competitive spirit and enthusiasm among the students to be the best of the lot.
4. This will help the PTIs to scout the players who have the potential to be a part of Inter IIT team and they can be separately motivated to join the Inter IIT practice by the captains and the PTIs.
5. The achievements of students in the respective intra NSO sport matches to be highlighted among the students so that they get an additional motivation to perform better.
This reform will improve the scenario of NSO drastically and provide students a lot of opportunities and zeal to practice harder and aim for the best.
I propose to change the current system of documentation of records and work for the digitalization of Gymkhana records and the day to day activities under sports and games.
Digital recording of data henceforth by maintaining a database with every possible record. (eg- Minutes of meetings, budgets, Inter-Hall/Inter-IIT performances,Awards,etc.)
This would develop a proper management system in the gymkhana and would ensure transparency in the Gymkhana processes.
Organizing a separate seminar and workshop cum tournament for Post Graduate and Research Scholars students. Also to schedule extra inter iit practice slots during their favourable time slots (eg- in the morning).
Total - Rs24750/-
This will diversify the sporting culture of IIT KGP and strengthen the Inter IIT teams at the same time.
