Sports Departments to Search Sports Talents
Bhopal. The School Education and Sports Department will now work together to bring out hidden sports talents from primary and middle schools. Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Yashodhara Raje Scindia gave this information at a meeting.
Sports Minister Scindia said that initially an attempt is being made to organise talent search in all schools in the academic session and prepare a data bank. On this basis, talented players will be included and trained in academies run by the Sports Department for international competitions. For this purpose High School P.T.I will impart training to primary and middle school children.
She said that the District Sports Officer will be made a member of the District Level Selection Committee constituted for the State Level School Sports Competition. This will ensure transparency in the selection of talented players from district level schools.
