Inter IIT Sports Meet is a contest held every winter at one of the IITs. The Meet affords the opportunity to the sportspersons from the IITs to showcase their talents. An Inter-IIT Aquatic meet is held separately as a part of the main meet each year preceding the main Inter-IIT Sports meet. The team excelling in both the meets is further awarded the General Championship. The probables for the meet are selected in September and are then subjected to regular coaching almost every evening in the odd semester by excellent coaches. A sports camp is organized at the end of the semester two weeks before Meet. It’s not easy to get into the Inter-IIT contingent. But dedication, hard work and passion can make everything possible. So if you want to represent your Institute at the highest level then dare and soar!

Spardha, the Inter Hostel Sports Competition, provides platform for all sportsmen, experienced and amateurs, in the campus. With the pride of your hostel at stake, this time in the sporting arena, Spardha will let you push the boundaries of what you can do for your hostel. It stretches throughout the even semester, and sees by far the largest participation from the students at IIT Guwahati. From aquatics to soccer, you can follow any sport that you love. The SAC grounds are open till 9 P.M. at night and you can issue sports equipment from the security guard at the SAC desk by bringing your I-Card. The use of the swimming pool requires you to register permanently and get a separate pool card. Don’t worry if you are a big zero in sports and never knew where to begin. There is a full-time dedicated team of professional coaches for various sporting activities. Physical fitness and mental alertness is a mantra for success in life. So, each one of you do make it a point to take some time out from your busy schedules for sports and extra-curricular activities.

Spirit is the annual sporting festival of IIT Guwahati. Held in the last week of October, it witnesses participation from across the North East. Some of the sporting talent on show is truly spectacular, with teams from our college pitted against professional sportsmen of real caliber. Spirit also serves the purpose of providing our probables for the Inter IIT Sports Meet an opportunity to iron out the flaws in their game, and gain some valuable match practice. Spirit is a spectacle not to be missed if you are a sports enthusiast.
