Education, Health care and Sports going hand in hand -
Dervan might be the only place in the entire world where Hospital, School, Nursing College, Rural Medical College and now the ultra modern Sports Complex are within the same campus.
"Sports plays an important role in our lives. It helps to improve concentration of mind and develops the power to take the decisions at the crunch situation. A habit of accepting a win or a loss with equal spirit is inculcated because of Sports.
The main objective behind organizing the Mega Sports Event here at SVJCT Sports Academy was to inculcate the spirit of sportsmanship and building the national spirit, which in turn will help to build a healthy nation."
"SVJCT is an umbrella organization that has under its auspices a Hospital for health care, School for the children of the nearby communities, A Rural Medical College for further studies in the field of medicine and now, a Sports Academy to improve performance in the field of sports.
Considering the total population of India, it is disappointing to see that Indian athletes and players are struggling to perform well at the international level. SVJCT intends to provide a platform to all the budding and aspiring athletes and players in India to perform and exceed at the international level."
