UT Admin may allow fitness training at Chandigarh sports complexes

The administration decided to reopen the Chandigarh sports complexes under strict guidelines by the authorities. UT admin may allow fitness training in category B as well as Category C sports at its complexes for players.

After a month, Tejdeep Saini, sports director Chandigarh, has said that they are proposing to provide coaching at Chandigarh sports complexes. The facilities will be open for category B and category C, which is to continue in the coming days.  

The report has been sent to KK K Yadav, Secretary of Sports, and after authorization by UT Administrator V P Singh Badnore and UT Adviser Manoj Parida, the training session will commence for sports division trainees in category B activities such as hockey, volleyball, cricket, basketball, football, etc. and category C sports such as boxing, wrestling, judo, taekwondo, etc.

Guidelines for Category B and C Sports

“A month has passed after we allowed practice in the category A activities such as athletics, badminton, lawn tennis, table tennis and weightlifting in our sports complexes other than four other sports, such as golf, shooting, fencing and cycling at other institutes. We have developed guidelines and SOPs for sports in category B and category C and submitted them to the sports secretary. Also, athletic practice in activities such as hockey, football, basketball, volleyball will get permission after approval apart from contact sports such as judo, taekwondo, and boxing.

For Category A training, complexes must follow social distance and staff will supervise the trainees.

Sports Department has permitted members to play at sports complexes in sports, such as lawn tennis, table tennis, and badminton. Saini said the campuses such as Sector 42 Hockey Academy and Football Academy would stay closed.

Chandigarh Sports Department reports that there is a new sports strategy, the policy would take time to formulate and enforce. “We are sure that the residential sports institutes must not open until further orders.”

About Sports Policy, we are consulting on the policy and will submit it once it is complete. All concerns and problems that need resolution will be addressed in the new policy.

Saini also took part in the celebrations of Olympic Day at Sector 7 Sports Complex and Sector 42 Sports Complex. Although the Olympic Association celebrated the event in Sector 7, the Chandigarh Hockey Association celebrated the occasion in Sector 42. Hockey Chandigarh gave prizes to winners of online learning championships and online technical contests.
