Jamia Promotes Sports for Junior Students
New Delhi: The Sports Authority of India had adopted Jamia Millia Islamia as an Extension Centre for sports such as Athletics, Football and Hockey. Under this scheme, schools and colleges actively involved in sports, with adequate infrastructure, and a history of producing national and international sports persons are eligible and Jamia was chosen for these very reasons. These schemes have been promoted by the Sports Authority of India with a view to promote sports at all levels especially at the junior level. The concept is to develop sports standard in schools and colleges who have shown commendable results in the field of sports, but may not have adequate infrastructure of their own. Under the above scheme, Jamia will be conducting selection for Athletics, Football & Hockey from February 04-06, 2013. Boys in the age group of 12 to 18 years are eligible to appear in the trials. Students other than those studying at Jamia can also take part in the trials. The trials will be held at the TTI Ground, Faculty of Education, Jamia Millia Islamia from February 04, 2013.
