Ministry asks SAI to improve infrastructure, assess coaches

Appalled by the state of infrastructure and coaching at some of the SAI centres, Sports Minister Vijay Goel says he has sought an assessment report of the facilities as well as the coaches employed there.

Goel said he recently visited the Sport Authority of India (SAI) centre at Raipur and was shocked to see that the local Municipal Corporation rents out the facility for social functions.

"The SAI centre in Raipur was inside a stadium of the state government. The municipal corporation provides the place for marriages and earns rent from it. It was in poor shape," Goel said in an interaction with PTI journalists.

"The coaches are there but they do not have enough students. If they have only 11 players for football, they can't even have two teams. I told them it won't work like this.

"We want to assess the coaches' performance. Their appraisal will also be done to see how many of them use modern technology, how is their own fitness. I have visited SAI stadiums and told them to prepare coaches' appraisal," he added.

Goel said like in Manipur, his ministry is exploring the possibility of creating a sports university in Gwalior.
