Schoolympics is an ultimate multi-sporting championship that brings together school children to compete, learn and elevate their game. Schoolympics has succeeded in establishing itself as the integral part of the schools sporting calendar.
After a rousing start in 2014, Schoolympics is now in its 5th edition in Pune & 2nd edition in Kolhapur.
Through the platform of sports competition and with focus on the sporting community – schools, students, parents, sport teachers, coaches, academics that participate in, benefit from and carry forward the games – creating a sports celebration that is healthy, refreshed and true to its nature.
In 2018, we brought together around 40000 school students from over 600 schools from Pune and Kolhapur Districts to experience the best inter-school sporting championship across 22 sports.
With a view to better align the children with the sports routines, there will be three categories for the individual sports routines, viz., ’10-12′ years, ’12-14′ years, ’14-16′ years. The team sport routines will have a solitary age group of ‘Under 16’ for all routines.
With 7 team sports and 15 Individual sports this year, there will be as many as 2359 medals to be won in Pune & Kolhapur.
Synchronization of medals –
In team sports :
- Gold medal comprises of 15 points
- Silver medal comprises of 9 points
- Bronze medal comprises of 3 points
While in individual sporting events it would be 5 points for a gold medal, 3 points for a silver medal and bronze medal assuring 1 point in the medal points tally.
Therefore, along with the medals, the points tally will be extremely important and will be the decisive factor for the schools winning Gold, Silver and Bronze championship trophies respectively.
There will also be cash prizes to go along with the trophies. The Schoolympics panel will hand over the title of ‘Champion’ to the boy and girl respectively, who will bag maximum gold medals in the entire event.
Along with the event, the objective of Schoolympics has been to ensure that education and sports go hand-in-hand. We believe that Schoolympics is a true enabler for Sport, to round up and balance education; for the school children.
