Rashtriya Military School Ajmer

Games and Sports

Games and Sports are an integral part of the educational curriculum and have been a forte of the students ever since the school was established. Playfields are spread out encircling the academic and residential buildings and they provide an ideal setting for developing the mental and physical faculties of cadets and teachers. Physical education and sporting activities go a long way towards developing confidence, discipline and team spirit. The requisite emphasis on sports has increased because the school has mostly been a nursery for the NDA, where due stress is laid on these aspect.
The most significant feature of the school is the endeavour for an all-round development of its students. Their balanced involvement in games and sports ensures attainment of the basic aim of education of developing a perfect personality comprising balanced development of physical, moral and intellectual faculties. Inter-house tournaments are conducted at junior and senior levels to ensure maximum participation in various games. To develop leadership qualities, the spirit of competition and bonhomie, ‘Pentangular Meets’ are held periodically amongst the five RMSs. Cadets have not only done exceptionally well at the school level but have excelled at IPSC, Inter-school, district, state and national level tournaments. The necessary sports infrastructure and the devoted staff in the school have produced Olympians, Arjuna awardees, vice chancellors of sports universities and sportsmen of national and international repute.

Sports Infrastructure

The school provides facilities for almost all major games. The infrastructure includes
• 06x Football fields
• 05x Basketball
• 03X Volleyball courts
• 01x Hockey ground
• 01xIndoor and outdoor boxing ring
• 01xGymnasium
• 01x 25-metre Swimming Pool
• 01x Olympic size Athletics field.


Facilities also exist for squash, lawn tennis and badminton which have lately become popular with the cadets.

Two state-of-the-art basketball courts complete with synthetic surface, glass boards, lighting poles and allied accessories were constructed in 2018 through Sports Activity Grant funds at a cost of Rs 24.41 lakh. They have been aptly named after Shri Hanuman Singh (1365, PJ, 1959-67), an Arjuna Awardee in basketball.

The athletic ground and the stadium are used regularly for physical training and athletics events. The Athletics Stadium is named after Col Subhash Thakan (1109, AK, 1955-62), an outstanding athlete, whose records in some events still remain unbroken.

However, keeping in view the ongoing increase in strength of the cadets to 450 and the vast scope to train the cadets in diving and competitive swimming, the school now needs an Olympic-sized pool.

Conduct of Physical Training and Games
There are two fully qualified and well-trained physical training instructors from the Army Physical Training Corps (APTC) who look after the physical training and sports activities of the cadets and the teachers proficient in various games and sports. It is ensured that the cadets have a healthy, happy and active school life.

The focus is on organized games with a games period of one hour daily and coaching facilities arranged as needed. This has enabled the cadets to excel in various inter-school, district and higher level sports championships.
