At our institutions, we take immense pride in our holistic sports curriculum by providing holistic development through Health & Nutrition Program, Yoga & Meditation, Taekwondo, and personalized diet charts based on BMI. Our ‘Get Fit Program’ and the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) program covering various sports, we’re sculpting their fitness, strength, and health conditioning. This initiative doesn’t stop at physical prowess; it’s a blueprint for strength and muscle development in our students. These helped us carve out students at Orchids who have represented India on international forums in Sports.
