With respect to this, students are encouraged to participate in the Inter School Competitions in the twin cities.

We are proud to express that DSE will be hosting its first Annual Sports Day in December and Deesians are gearing up for the same. Moreover, the school will be participating in the CBSE Cluster Meet for the first time.

1. Cricket

2. Roller Skating is recognized among the best overall aerobic exercises, involving all the body’s muscles, including the heart. It is equivalent to jogging in terms of health benefits, calorie burning and reduction of body fat and leg strength development. Just one hour of moderate roller skating burns 330 calories for a 143-pound person. If that same person roller skates vigorously, he or she will burn up to 590 calories in an hour.

 

3. Gymnastics At DSE we believe that the physical activities associated with the sport of gymnastics not only builds strength, flexibility and coordination, but has a profound and positive effect on a child’s self esteem and psychological development which in turn develop the brain power. Trampoline and Tumbling are a part of Gymnastics that we offer at DSE, apart from other exercises.

5. Classical Dance

6. Zumba Fun Filled way of exercising creates a permanent joy and happiness and empowers good health. These programs appeal to children as the music is rhythmic and foot tapping. 

7. Chess as an activity is very popular with the DSE students. It helps them relax yet at the same time, sharpens their thinking skills and helps them with their strategy.

8. Archery was first included as an Olympic sport. Archery has specific techniques like how your feet should be placed, how far to pull the string back, and how to aim.

Competitive archery – that is, archery that involves archers aiming arrows at a target – has various forms, but all have the same aim: to shoot your arrows as close to the centre of the target as possible. While clearly only one archer holds a bow at once, both individual and team competitions are undertaken. The bowstring may have any number of strands as long as it fits the bow, and an adjustable arrow rest and a bow sight may also be used. There is little restriction over the types of arrows used, other than those that may cause undue damage to targets,
The target itself varies in size –those used in Olympic archery events measure 122cm in diameter – but all contain 10 concentric rings which represent the different scoring sectors. The outermost two rings (called one ring and two ring) are white, three and four are black, five and six are blue, seven and eight are red and nine and ten – the innermost rings – are gold. Ten ring also has an inner ring (known as “inner 10” or “X ring”) which is sometimes used to decide ties.
Scoring in archery is very simple: you just add up the number of points based on where your arrows hit the target. The highest score for a single arrow is 10 for hitting the inner gold ring, while the least (for hitting the outer white ring) is one point. Arrows missing the target altogether do not score at all.

7. Karate

8. Yoga is a form of exercise that develops body awareness, builds concentration through breathing exercises. Yoga increases confidence and portrays positive self-image
