For the first time since its conception, VSM organized a SPORTS DAY on 2nd October, 2018 at S.B. College, Shahapur.

There were 109 participants comprising of 70 students, 23 alumni and 16 Mentors.

2The event was inaugurated by our senior Founder Member from Shahapur, Shri. Gopal Athavale. This was followed by chanting of Omkar and prayers by our hostel girls.

Post registration, students were divided into Junior and Senior groups. For each group, we conducted 100 M running, Relay race, Shot Put for girls & boys and underarm cricket for all.

5This was a day filled with lots of enthusiasm and fun. Students were very thrilled and thoroughly enjoyed the first ever conducted sports day in VSM history. The love for sports and the display of Team spirit were the major takeaways for all.

8The original idea was the brainchild of our own mentor & sportswomen, Arpita Raut, ably supported by her spouse, Mr. Ashok Raut who himself is a sportsman.

Her enthusiastic team members, Sujata Naik, Rajita Sawant had organized various games and activities with the help of alumni & current students from Shahapur and Thane.

7Our superb Alumni team of Pawan, Nilesh, Prathamesh, Rahul, Bharat , Anand, Pankaj, Prakash, Chetana and Kavita along with some current students and volunteers/mentors put great efforts to make the event a big success.

Some of the students gave detailed event to event commentary. Pawan did a great job with on spot necessary arrangements to conduct this events. Mr. Mahesh Farde our volunteers, made lots of efforts to encourage students to actively participate in this event. Thanks to his efforts that students participated in such overwhelming numbers.

Student’s Testimonials:

3Vishal Malik: There are no words to say about VSM sports day. It was a memorable moment for all of us. I learnt many lessons through our various kinds of games but I would like to talk about Relay game. It gave an awesome experience to me. In Relay if there is one player’s performance is not good, but next good player can recover all the distance. So, we need to co-operate with each other and all of us will be successful.

 Karan Pardesi:
First time we enjoyed as a team.
First time we connected as a player.
First time we felt our breath.
First time we talked about strategy.
First time we did not bothered to lose.
First time we got the medal.
We are not collecting medals we are collecting happiness, memories that make us rich.
