This conclave serves as a nexus for individuals from diverse sectors – industry, academia, government, and beyond – to converge, collaborate, and catalyze advancements in athletic performance and human potential. Let’s Transform the World of Sports Together

Chief guest of the conclave, Mr. Ravneet Gill, Founder, New Horizons Alliance Private Limited inaugurated the Sports Performance Lab, in the presence of Dr. David V. Rajan, Arthroscopy Surgeon, Founder, Ortho One – Orthopaedic Speciality Centre & Shri Shankar Vanavarayar, President, Kumaraguru Institution’s. The event is happening on the side lines of a proposed new program on B Sc Sports Science to be introduced in Kumaraguru College of Liberal Arts and Science (KCLAS) which is first of its kind program in Coimbatore.

Shri Shankar Vanavarayar, President of Kumaraguru Institutions said,Today we have come together as a group to talk about Sports Science. Sports in India is no more about passion, it is about economic impact, individual development, community building and a soft power of presenting this country globally.

We want us to be seen as an option where young people can find themselves great careers and great opportunities in the future, but we will also work with the society, research and start-ups that will come out of this ecosystem.”

Mr. Ravneet Gill, Founder, New Horizons Alliance Ltd in his speech said “Sports Science involves so many different things like sports psychology, physiology, biomechanics, nutrition. This should be called the Science of Life, Science of success, science of excellence. Everything that it teaches, and nurtures is about fulfilment of human potential and how each of us become the best version of ourselves.

India has 1.4 billion people. It is not true that all 1.4 billion people play, only 6% of people play in regular basis. How do we make more Indians play? The history of sports show that more people play, the more are the chances that you succeed. So, this education to my mind will be transformative for the country not just in terms of what we will do for the sporting ecosystem but also how we measure success, how we see success.

We need to be open-minded and accept different types of education, just like we embrace technology, social media, and content creation. Did you know that 650 million Indians enjoy playing games? Gaming can be a great way to learn and develop new skills!

Sports science will be important for India, especially because we’re a young country. It can help us predict success and understand what we want from people. I believe that in 10 years, India could be much better at sports because of this.”

Dr. David V. Rajan, Founder, Ortho-One Orthopaedic Speciality Centre in his address said, “Sports is microcosm of life. Sports is everything.We have 1.4 billion athletes in our country, they must cross the road, they run for the buses and to get auto-rickshaws. Each one of us are athletes in India and every one of us need sports science and sports medicine. There is a great difference between sports science and sports medicine from 80s and 90s and now. Kumaraguru is going ahead with Sports Science.

The overlap between Sports science and sports medicine is hard to separate. The athletes are in the right middle, all around in the top is the parents who must identify the talents and take them to the right coach, biomechanics experts, psychologists, nutrition specialists, the high-performance specialists and performance analyser.

In case of Sports injury that’s where sports medicine comes in and all this together builds an athlete of world class along with this the coach and physiologist play an important role. Together we can improve the standards of sports in our part of the country, prevent injuries, prehab and make sure the athletes excel in their fields. “
