The Scindia School is dotted with 14 full-fledged playing fields spread across its over 100 acre campus. The school provides a matrix of intra and inter-school sports activities. In the Junior Section, depending upon the season, all boys undergo training in Hockey, Football, Cricket, Athletics, Basketball, Tennis, Squash, Table Tennis, Horse Riding, Skating, Archery, Shooting and Swimming. From Class VIII, the students are encouraged to specialize in a sport, according to their inclination and also based on the suggestions of the expert Coaches for at least one whole year. Many of them stay specialised with that sport from Class VIII to XII and acquire special skills. However, the boys are encouraged to play inter-house tournaments and participate in other sports, to promote all-rounder sportsmen. This emphasis also instills team spirit skills for life beyond the school days, and a wider appreciation of sport in general. In Athletics, and in the cross-country race, along with the highly competitive sections, the school also has a popular non-competitive section to encourage mass participation. Every student on an average plays two hours of sports everyday. An ‘early rise’ fitness programme of scientifically planned set of exercises and yoga keeps the boys ‘healthy and agile’. Further, the school has a mission that every Scindian must be a swimmer.
Traditional Indian games such as Kho-kho and Kabaddi are celebrated at the annual sports gala. The teachers in charge of the event occasionally also introduce Indian fun games such as Pitthhoo, Gilli Danda, or kite flying.
The students regularly represent the IPSC and CBSE teams at the National School Games. The boys train under the guidance of Resident Coaches available for all sports. Many national level sportsmen have emerged from the school. Apart from outdoor sports, the students are encouraged to play cerebral games like Chess.
Adventure Sports, like white water rafting, trekking, rock climbing and mountaineering, are features of the school and a lifetime experience for the students. The annual mountaineering trip to the Himalayas instills a life-long spirit of adventure . The campus within the Fort environs itself has professional coaching provision for rock-climbing.
