GITAM intends to be a leading enabler in sport-based development, and towards that end, will offer engagement opportunities to students to access high quality playing facilities which in turn will contribute to a positive and healthy sports culture within the University.

The establishment of a competitive sports culture is an essential element in our pursuit of instituting a robust and sustainable sports ecosystem.

The time-tested way of establishing a competitive sports culture is by introducing Student athletes through an effective Sports Quota system. The vision for Student-athletes in GITAM is to provide deserving students a chance to get quality education in conjunction with pursuing their athletic dreams.
