SPORTS EQUIPMENT

The sports equipment being costly is out of reach of sportsmen. The purchase of equipment is imperative to provide training to young boys & girls in different disciplines and prepare them for National and International Competitions.

To facilitate the proper training, quality sports equipment of international standard is being purchased by the department under this scheme for all the coaching centers/ Sports Wings/ Academies/ competitions organised by the Department to run sports activities properly, efficiently and effectively.
