THE SPORTING JOURNEY SAGA- CONCLUDING NARRATIVE

SCHOOL ATHLETES’  STORIES OF TEARS, TOIL AND SUCCESS

“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.” —Liane Cardes

The road from playgrounds to podiums for an athlete is always incredible, as they are full of love, determination and the desire to achieve the best. It commences in a playground which is humble, where a child’s passion for sports starts walking. At Manav Rachna International School, Sector 14, the top school in Faridabad, we realize that a champion emerges from trivial beginnings. We are proud to mentor the youngsters because we believe that it’s not the outcome that matters; it is about the complete love of the game and invaluable learning.

The advanced sports facilities at our disposal allow all students to experience an arena for discovery. It truly upholds the significance that the school attaches to quality augmentation. Students are encouraged to try various sports and discover their true passion at the best schools in India.

The efficient and experienced staff at MRIS play a vital role in helping students achieve their inherent talent in sports. Expert guidance, training, and mentorship is provided to every student, whether they aspire to become accomplished sports person or seek to improve and hone their skills. The prominence is always on an individual’s  personal growth and development, which goes hand in hand with a love for the game. Children are always encouraged to step out of their familiar zones, try new sports, and challenge themselves. American Soccer player Alex Morgan rightly said “Winning and losing isn’t everything; sometimes, the journey is just as important as the outcome.” It is here in the playground that students learn life lessons of working together towards a common goal.

In addition to sports days, MRIS 14, the top school in Faridabad, organizes sports summer camps that allow students to explore deeper into their chosen sports. Structured and Conducive Environment is provided for students to obtain rigorous and intensive training and coaching from competent instructors. Taking part in the camps helps the students to grow confidence, independence, physical strength and student’s leadership ability. They are trained to struggle through obstacles and downfalls, and this is by far the biggest lesson of all that transcends sports and goes beyond both academics and personal lives.

The journey from the playground to the podium is certainly a daunting one. It depends on the strong will, tireless devotion, arduous labor, and self-sacrifice. However, with such a school as caring and devoted as Manav Rachna, the obstacle of the journey becomes slightly easier. We award sports scholarships to deserving students. Also, when the students are busy with their academics and as well training sometimes, the teachers at Manav Rachna are understanding, offering extra help to students so that they can achieve their goals.

MRIS 14 Faidabad, develops students with the attitude that dreams are indeed meant for its driven pursuit. The school encourages students to dream big and offers the desired assistance and materials to attain their goals. Talents like diligence and endurance , too, contribute to our academic success. If sports are part of our daily routine, we can certainly focus on our studies and perform better in academics.

Teamwork is one of the most significant lessons that sports instill in us. Sports players realize that success in sports doesn’t normally stem from individual achievement but from the team’s collective effort which makes this idea practically applicable to the workplace and other spheres of life.

Discipline is next on the way as the athletes have to train hard, manage their time and sacrifice the things they love. These qualities are universally applicable and contribute to overall personal development. Handling failures is one of the biggest parts of any athlete’s career. They understand that failures are chances of improving and success is tied with perseverance. At MRIS, a CBSE affiliated school, we build tenacity. We build leadership. We build compassion in our students.

We have young athletes who are true examples of sheer hard work and determination. They have led the way from the playground, learning the nuances of time management and discipline and have walked towards success. Yatharth Gaur, Grade 5 student secured the Second Position in the 1st Round of Meco-FMSCI National Karting Championship Rotax Max Classes, 2023, organized by FMSCI (Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India).

Another sportsperson is Arshnoor Kaur of Grade 11, who has proved her grit with courage, dedication, and determination. Arshnoor won a gold medal for the nation at the 60th edition of National Roller Skating Championship in Bengaluru.

Our students have performed equally well on the global stage. Ankit Joshi participated in the Asian Youth Basketball Championship held in Indonesia. Kush Chug participated in the Asian Youth Badminton Championship held in Indonesia. Vibhuti Bhatia secured the prestigious position in the National squad of Team India in the 10-meter Air Pistol Youth women’s Category.

Manav Rachna International School, 14, sees sport as a practical application in restoring sporting spirit in youth. With the support of highly qualified teams of coaches and directors, and being provided with opportunities through sports days, summer camps, unbeatable training facilities, the students are guaranteed to find what sparks passion for sports and hence, can accomplish their dreams.

The management of the best international school in Faridabad, believes that sports are an essential part of education and are instrumental in holistic development. The school has invested in the well-being of every student and prepares them for a different tomorrow equipped with tools to succeed, set in its cultural ethos. The journey from playground to podium may not be an easy path but with support and guidance from proficient teachers, there is certainty of every student fulfilling their dreams

Manav Rachna International School, Sector 14, Faridabad is not just a school; it is rather a place where champions are made, where every single student is encouraged to cherish big dreams and accomplish those.

The journey of an athlete is gauged not by his medals and trophies but by his mettle. It is here in the playground that personal growth, unyielding pursuance and the quest for excellence are discovered. Embarking on this journey from the playground to the summit is one that will forever be seared into a student’s memory as well creating a perfect template for success. However, despite the fact that the road might be difficult with the hardships and sacrifices, it eventually will lead to the establishment of confidence, and improvement in developing self-esteem, and be satisfying.
