In spite of limited number of Officers and Ministerial Staff and as well as availability of Coaches and other Field Staff of the Department, the Department within a short span of 14 years, achieved a commendable record. The name of Mizoram had been brought to the notice of the Sports lovers not only at the National Level but also at the International Level. With a limited allocation of fund, the Department performed to the best of its ability in producing World Class Boxer and World Class Archer Wushu players and Sepaktakraw players. More International players are coming up in the discipline of Hockey. Recently 8 Mizo Hockey (boys) players were selected to have tour to Countries of Europe besides amongst the women team there is a tremendous development in women hockey two girls are already inducted in Indian women team.
The Department excelled in the activities of Adventure Sports by sending all Mizo Mountaineers by conquering Mt. Abigamin-II which is technically difficult to climb where most International Climbers failed to conquer. All the Rivers in Mizoram are surveyed by using Rubber Dinghy and Caves are explored. We are the only Civilian having practices and trained Para-Sailing for the first time in India.
