SAI-LNCPE has been a veiled institution for the public since its opening on August 17, 1985. But for the sports buffs, this institute pioneered the growth of sports in the state and helped many a sports person evolve into national stature.
It pruned talented rookies helping them come out with flying colours, aiding the medal-starved country avoid a few blushes in International arenas. Behind all the achievements the country has etched in the sporting annals, the contribution made by the sprawling campus, green fields, placid swimming pools and state-of-the-art fitness facilities are indispensable.
