India making real progress

Another of the teams which journeyed across Asia to European countries to compete in the French Open earlier this month was India. Along with coach Hemraj Dhira, Yogender Singh Dahiya, who is assistant admin general of the Indian Sepaktakraw Federation, was in attendance and delighted together with his team’s performance, as they went all the way through to the final. He also got some positive developments about the future of the sport in his country to share.

“The Indian authorities supports no fewer than 43 sports, and they have four different levels of categorising: top priority, priority, general and ‘others’, ” Yogi explained. “Up until recently, sepaktakraw was merely among the ‘other’ sports. At least we existed, but we did not receive any kind of support. Since we won a bronze medal at the last King’s Cup in the premier division within the regu competition, the government has sitting up and taken notice. ”

“We finished 5th in the regu at the last Oriental games. If a team comes in the very best eight there (or top 6 for individuals), you’re entitled to modify categories. Sepaktakraw has therefore been moved up into the ‘priority’ group, meaning that we now get financial support. There is also a new system coming in as of 1 April 2016 whereby a certain number of registered players in the ‘top priority’ and ‘priority’ sports will be found employment, either in authorities departments or in the armed forces. There is a sports quota in certain departments associated with administration, and now we can now be element of that. It also helps when it comes to university admissions. ”

Addititionally there is good news regarding the coaching conditions designed for sepaktakraw players in India. “Previously, there were five training centres along with few facilities, ” Yogi describes. “Now eight more centres are now being built and fitted with most recent equipment, all of international standard. There is a system whereby coaches get to select the top 20 local players at trials, who get to attend these centres and are given board, hotels and education courtesy of the government. These players, who are all under the regarding 20, then get three more years support from the state when they perform well. ”

“The government is also giving funds in order to organise national coaching camps just before tournaments, both at senior and today also for at youth (U-21) level. We currently have 15 children and 15 girls whom we are working with at Hyderabad, and we have been promised funding next year at U-14 level for coaching. We all take the ‘probables’ and give them 30-day trials to school them within the basic techniques. We’re also going bring in foreign coaches to work with the senior players. It will enable to train with them and then go back to local centres and share what they have learned. ”

The sport is certainly increasing in one of the biggest markets in terms of general and also sporting population, and if sepaktakraw managed to get acceptance at the Commonwealth Video games, then that would be another step forward designed for India. “Give us five years…! ” said Yogi with a smile as he watched Thailand play within the background. And indeed, who knows, maybe within five years’ time India may indeed be shoulder-to-shoulder with the huge South-East Asian teams.
