Chief Minister Of Delhi
Kejriwal informed the media on Thursday that a bill has been approved by the Delhi cabinet to set up the 'Sports University' and will be further sent to Lt. Governor Anil Baijal.
Earlier the sportspersons used to feel insecure about their future but under this university, they will be able to devote all of their time to sports. They will get graduate degrees in different sports like cricket, hockey, football and so on. Through their degree, they will be able to apply for any government job which has graduation as the eligibility criteria. They will be able to give exams like civil services.
Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi
Today, the anxiety in the mind of all those sportspersons who want to make their name and bring laurels to the country in their respective sports will go away. Now, their sport will be their subject of higher studies," Sisodia told the media.
Speaking about whether this concept is first of its kind, the Chief Minister said, "Delhi is recognized all over the world for one of its kind initiatives. Installation of 3 lakh cameras and 2 lakh street lights are some of the initiatives launched for the first time all across the world. This will be the first university to provide formal education in sports. We have come up with a different concept altogether, it is not just about the promotion of sports, but it is about formalizing sports and making them a part of the main curriculum of a student.
Vice Chancellor of Delhi Sports University
The history of sports in India is a testimony to the fact that there’s no lack of talent but of right grooming, support and motivation. With this vision, Delhi Sports University has been instituted to revolutionize the sports ecosystem in India. While leading this institution, I look forward to making the best sporting facilities available to sports talent from every corner in the country.
Delhi Sports University (DSU) is a unique school-university integrated institution that creates a sporting pathway for young talent from school till the Olympics. Majority of sports talent in India that comes from rural, low socio-economic strata of the society has no access to good sporting facilities. DSU will scout sports talent from the grassroots and nurture them to build sports champions in India. DSU will enhance sports performance through sports science, world-class infrastructure, training and curriculum, thus forming an end-to-end sports ecosystem. This will also address the mental health issues that sportspersons face while balancing their sporting endeavors and academic requirements in formal education systems. DSU will also enable meaningful contribution to the society by ensuring that graduates of Delhi Sports University and Delhi Sports School are responsible citizens to promote physical fitness in the society.
It gives me immense pleasure to see this sporting revolution take off towards fulfilling the dream of every Indian heart to shine at the Olympics!
