    Published on August 30, 2020

    Sports Authority of India (SAI) has been opening up its facilities for sporting activities in a phased manner after the Government announced Unlock 1. In the first phase, Olympic and Paralympic-bound athletes began sporting activities at SAI’s sporting facilities.

    As country enters Unlock 4, SAI has decided to open up its facilities for Developmental Group athletes. In the first leg, SAI has geared up to open up sporting activities for shooters of the Target Olympic Podium Developmental Group and athletes of National Centre of Excellence (NCOE) at the Karni Singh Shooting Range (KSSR) from September 2nd.

    The decision to open up sporting facilities in a phased manner has been taken to ensure that safety and training continuity of athletes can move hand in hand. Separate slots have been reserved for the Olympic-bound core group of elite shooters to ensure continued training in a safe environment.

    Guidelines of the Health Ministry and SAI’s SOP will be followed strictly during training of Developmental Group athletes.
