Sports School is in abeyance for Formal Induction

Sports School is in abeyance for Formal Induction

It can be a big boon to young athletes of the school.

Andhra Pradesh Sports School might well be in the news for all the right reasons if only the Rs. 7 crore residential complex on its premises in Hakimpet is formally inaugurated at the earliest.

"We are hoping this to be handed over to the students anytime," says K. Narsaiah, Special Officer of APSS. If everything goes as per plan, the school will be the only one in the entire State having such a sprawling residential complex.

It could well hasten the process of converting the school into a degree college and subsequently into a Sports University too.

The project began in 2007 at an estimated cost of about Rs. 4 crore with 120 rooms - 40 for girls and 80 for boys. It can easily accommodate 300 inmates with decent furnishings where sports training and academics can be combined.

The school strength is now 185 with 40 more likely to be admitted after selections next month. Once opened, it will be big boon to young athletes of the school because in other coaching centres, they are being shunted from place to place having bare minimum facilities.

Sports Authority of A.P. (SAAP) and Sports Authority of India (SAI) did deliberate on setting up a Sports Training Centre on the premises, but it was later shelved. The result is athletes of SAI training centre already shunted out of the Begumpet hockey ground to Saroornagar stadium have to go all the way to RRC grounds in Secunderabad for training.
