The department of Physical Education at LSR has two main thrusts. The first is the pursuit of research and high quality pedagogy. The other is the promotion of health, fitness and well-being for the entire college community. The department encourages LSR students to learn about, explore and represent college in different sports. The department also houses the National Sports Organisation of the college.
The College has sixteen sports teams: Athletics, Archery, Badminton, Basketball, Chess, Air Rifle Shooting, Air Pistol Shooting, Trap Shooting, Swimming, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Judo, Tennis, Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Boxing, Golf, Sports for differently abled (para) and Equestrian Sports. In addition, regular yoga classes are organized. The college has a gymnasium to cater to the needs of students wanting to engage in cardio-vascular workouts.
At LSR, sports is an inclusive endeavour. The differently-abled students of LSR participate in a large number of sport events. LSR students have won laurels at both national and international competitions and have been recipients of many prestigious awards including the Arjuna Award.
The Physical Education department seeks to break stereotypical images of sports. The department organizes talks, workshops and seminars to bring awareness amongst the students with special reference to wellness, fitness, sports injuries, sports nutrition and drug abuse in sports. Inter-disciplinarity remains a strong focus in these events. Eminent sports personalities & sports scientists are also invited to engage with students. In previous years, the department has also introduced a certificate course in sports journalism. Currently, the department teaches first, second and third year students physical education papers.
