Many of our club members have achieved podium status in national and international events which in itself is a great achievement for the club.
The club was formed with an idea to bring a solution to the basic challenge that today's younger generations is facing about being mostly into computers and electronic gadgets, due to which they have almost forgotten to play sports on filed. To do something constructive in this area, all of us from different age groups, profession and different sports background came together and formed this club to spread awareness and importance of sports.
The idea of conducting sports event, came from our combined desire to promote fitness and simultaneously challenge it. Through our experiences, we gained a rock solid attitude towards life which we wish to share with the society. Swimming, cycling and running being the basic fitness sports activities, we are taking planned efforts in generating awareness in the youth of our country, so that they can further compete at national and international events. Moreover, our club achievers have already led by example and exhibited some of the required qualities like hard-work, discipline, passion and dedication to excel in any field. Sports can teach us to imbibe such qualities and the effect is experienced almost immediately. The effort also highlights the go-getting attitude which everyone of us need to develop ourself in this competitive world. No matter how tough, how long or how hard it gets, we want to show people what it feels like they achieve their target, especially when they don't give up.
