Punjab to start a coaching centre for disabled athletes
The Punjab Sports Department is all set to start a special coaching centre for blind and disabled people in Ludhiana.
There are no coaching centres for disabled people in the state. Hence disabled sportsmen find it very hard to take part in competitions.
District sports officers have been told to start coaching centres exclusively for para-athletes. They will be provided with international facilities and the best government coaches.
The players will be groomed to play national and international games. Singh also added that the minister has asked officials to constantly monitor about the progress of the work at these centres.
This new initiative by the government will definitely be a blessing to hundreds of disabled people in the state. The coaching centre will be located at the multi-purpose hall of Guru Nanak Stadium in Ludhiana.
