Athletics
Introduction
Athletics, also called track-and-field sports, includes a variety of competitions in running, walking, jumping, and throwing events. Track and field are the earliest forms of organized sport, having developed out of the most fundamental human activities—running, walking, jumping, and throwing. Our team works to improve the student's overall health and fitness while also getting them ready for contests. Under the direction of skilled instructors, the students are put through practical training sessions. We provide a warm, supportive space where students may thoroughly explore their abilities. If you love sports, IITR is where you should be!
