Consistent with the mission of Yenepoya University, the Department of Physical Education operates a broad-based program of sports and physical activities that reflect to the extent possible the interest of the student body, the ethical principles of the University and the desires of its internal and external constituents. In carrying out its mission, the following principles shall apply:
Winning medals in all India levels, improve health, fitness, and quality of life through daily physical activity.
Offer opportunities to ensure that physical activity and fitness become part of regular healthy behavioural patterns. Encouraging any type or amount of physical activity in leisure time can provide important health benefits, compared to a sedentary lifestyle. Activities that promote strength and flexibility are important because they may protect against disability, enhance functional independence, and encourage regular physical activity participation. These benefits are particularly important—a good quality of life means being functionally independent and being able to perform the activities of daily living.
Young people are at particular risk for becoming sedentary as they grow older. Therefore, encouraging moderate and vigorous physical activity among adults is important. Because they spend most of their time in studies, the type and amount of physical activity encouraged in colleges are important components of a fitness program and a healthy lifestyle.
