Sports has always been an integral part of the APL curriculum. The path shown by Dr. Kannan Pugazhendi is being carried forward ably by the sports faculty. With a firm belief that the physical state impacts mental energies, APL ensures that its students are exposed to regular fitness checks, exercises and sports.
The sports program is aimed at developing physical fitness and sporting ability in a variety of indoor and outdoor games, at individual and team levels. Attention is given to individual needs in areas like posture, strength, endurance, flexibility, stamina and skill development for sporting events. Sports and movement activities are used effectively to work on psychological factors like self-confidence, attention, motivation, managing emotions and so on.
The games played at APL include basketball, football, cricket, badminton, throwball, volleyball and a range of athletic sports.
