Clubs


Harnessing the Wind Power
     Training at the National Defence Academy, encompasses a large gamut of activities considered necessary to mould the personality of a future military leader. Over the span of its existence the Academy has continued to evolve methods of training in harmony with the demands of time and has produced "men of substance", men who vindicated these methods, in the cauldron of conflict and in the constant yearning for excellence in every field. The aim of training at the Academy recognises the need to develop an interest in extracurricular activities amongst the cadets to mould the overall personality of a cadet emerging from the portals of this hallowed institution.

     With this tacit recognition of the relevance of extracurricular activities or what is more commonly referred to as the 'club activities' in the Academy parlance, in the overall scheme of training , it is easy to comprehend the functioning of such clubs at the Academy. It is further pertinent to appreciate, that while the primary objective remains ensuring effective utilisation of 'leisure time', excellence in any such extracurricular activity is allowed adequate exposure at national and international fora and a natural progression from a beginner to an amateur to a treasured individual skill. In keeping with this objective a number of clubs of both the outdoor and the indoor variety are functional at the Academy.


Aiming for Perfection

     The role of these clubs goes beyond generation of interest in extracurricular activities as this is the singular domain which provides opportunities for self-expression through creative use of leisure. Clubs at the Academy aid organising ability and development of a disciplined, inquisitive mind by stimulating lasting interest in hobbies and pursuits of choice. These varied skills acquired during the most important learning phase of their career in the Armed forces, stand our cadets in good stead throughout their service.

     A total of thirty clubs function at the Academy to ensure that the laid down objectives meet their logical conclusion during the training regimen of a cadet at the academy. Out of these thirty clubs, twelve are indoor and the balance eighteen are outdoor clubs. The club section of the training branch is responsible for ensuring that all clubs are provided such training aids as are essential for fulfilment of the laid down objectives. Each club has an officer advisor (OA) and a joint officer advisor (JOA) who is responsible for the routine functioning of the club. Additionally, clubs requiring professional instructional support are provided the same with a view to ensure that cadets achieve the requisite skill level. The list of all the clubs are appended below:-
