The following activities would be undertaken as a part of the ODT at Indian Naval Academy :
Physical Training (PT) : PT sessions would be conducted in the morning and coaching/ mentoring for sports/ games in the afternoons. Graduating from simple exercises, trainees would be conditioned for advanced exercises as the term progresses. Trainees would be required to pass the PT tests within three attempts.
Trainees failing in PT tests would not be allowed to be a part of the Passing Out Parade and would therefore not be allowed to bring their parents/ gaurdians for the parade. Failure to clear mandatory PT tests within 15 days on completion of POP would entail relegation (repetition of the term) of the trainee.
