Undergraduate students, especially those who have just entered their 2nd and 3rd year, find it difficult to perform in these tournaments unless they were in the list of probables the previous year.
The timings are tentative and subject to changes according to coaches.
82 students will be selected, and the distribution per sport is as follows:
Venue for physical training: Jnan Ghosh Stadium
Warm-up with light jogging, followed by stretching.
Strength training (push-ups, leg squats)
Core exercises (abdominal crunches)
Fun and team building activities (once or twice a week, as per the decision of the coaches): Tug of war etc.
Venue for coaching:
The sport specific training sessions will focus primarily on the basic aspects of the sport, after strengthening which, the coach may move on to advanced skills required. However, it would be the decision of the coach to determine the exact coaching regime required by a player on the basis of his existing skill set and experience. Swimming pools slots will also be provided to the students for relaxation and to improve their bonding in accordance with the availability of the pool.
The Physical Training Instructors and coaches were contacted regarding their willingness to train the students in a summer camp. Their response was more than positive and it can be seen in Annexure 1 at the end of the proposal document.
In addition to sports, academic incentives can be given to students as follows :
Students can apply for projects under professors or under research groups such as Autonomous Ground Vehicle, Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Aerial Robotics Kharagpur etc., which they could do in the time between their sessions. Apart from this, they could also register for courses that happen in the institute in the summers, such as C++ by the department of Computer Science and Engineering. Students would be made aware of such possible avenues by online media on platforms such as facebook.
Camp Food: ₹ (150 per person per day) * (82 persons) * (21 days) = ₹ 2,58,300
Player of the camp T-shirts: ₹ ( 12 persons) * (518 per T-shirt) = ₹ 7,200.

A poll was conducted amongst the 1st and 2nd year students regarding their willingness to participate in a 21-day summer sports camp in Sarojini Naidu/ Indira Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri Halls of Residence. The results of the same have been pictorially represented here.
Responses from the Inter IIT contingent feedback forms regarding their willingness to participate in a summer camp:
This data has been compiled from the feedback forms submitted by the Inter IIT contingent of IIT Kharagpur in the 51st Inter IIT Sports Meet held in IIT Kanpur. It is evident from these charts that the Inter IIT contingent is itself willing to participate in a summer camp to improve our performance in the Inter IIT Sports Meet. The successful organization of this initial phase of the summer camp could pave the way to organize a summer camp for the Inter IIT Contingent.
Rich alumni culture and database of IIT Kharagpur robustly supports this proposal and thus makes it feasible as well. Many alumni were contacted for their views regarding this proposal and they were more than willing to support the same.
“ We as the alumni would be more than willing to contribute. The squash team faces the crisis of a permanent coach. We would be more than willing to pay for a temporary coach on a monthly basis if the budget of squash does not suffice for the team.”
- Mr. Anchit Singh Shekhon (Inter IIT Squash)
The other Alumni who were contacted were
Mr. Anant Agarwal
Mr. Abhishek Malhotra
Mr. Pankaj Agarwal
Mr. Biplob Rana
We also contacted some final year Inter-IIT players and they were in total support of this idea and were more than willing to contribute as an alum for the success of this proposal.
“This is an extremely innovative idea. Apart from all the other benefits, it would give me a sense of satisfaction after contributing to my team if they face some monetary issues. I would still be a part of my team and the contingent as a whole through this channel.”
- Mr. Ashwin Kumar (Inter-IIT Contingent Vice-Captain)
This proposal would require absolutely no budget.
