Government school kids to get free sports training
New Delhi, Dec 27: The Delhi government on Tuesday approved a scheme under which students of government schools here will be given free coaching in 31 different games and sport including cricket, chess, and martial arts by private trainers.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, told a media conference that under the new scheme, private sports academies, clubs, and private coaches will get the permission to run training programmes in the premises of government schools, which will be free of cost for their students.
“They (trainers) can decide the fee charges for kids from private schools by themselves,” he said.
Sisodia also said that female coaches will be appointed for games that will only have girl students.
“People, who wish to promote various games but are unable to do so because of lack of proper space, will also be benefitted by this programme,” he said.
The number of games, if required, can go beyond 31, he said. As of now these games include: cricket, hockey, kabaddi, kho-kho, rugby, shooting, squash, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball, wrestling etc.
Sisodia said that this scheme was implemented one and half year back as a pilot project with around 50 to 60 students.
