Jamshedpur India Sports
The Tata Trusts and Tata Steel have teamed up to take a trip into hockey and have teamed up for the One Million Hockey Legs program to coach boys and girls in the National Hockey League (NHL) in Jamshedpur, Karnataka.
The first group of players was selected from over 5,000 boys and girls who were rigorously trained at the grassroots level. Tata Steel has also established 18 sports disciplines including horse riding, gymnastics, football, tennis, basketball, volleyball, baseball, football, cricket, hockey, athletics, lacrosse, swimming, cycling, golf and tennis.
The next level of performance - a merit-based approach - is a regional development center (Center of Excellence) followed by a state-level intervention center in each of the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. The approach was to identify sports that are popular in the region and then promote excellence in those sports. To maximise their reach, the trusts work closely with local sports associations in the states where the sport interventions are active.
They even have a decent grassroots programme to nurture young footballers, who are then selected for the B team. In badminton, the trusts have signed the Pullela Gopichand Bad Minton Foundation under the leadership of India's top bad mittens coach, as well as the Pune Badminder's Foundation and the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.
Sir Dorabji Tata has played a decisive role in the development of sport in India and also financed the establishment of the Tata Institute of Sports and the Indian Olympic Committee (IOC). Naval Tata held prestigious positions and was a member of the Indian national ice hockey team when she won Olympic gold in 1948, 1952 and 1956. He is the founder and chairman of the Naval H. Tata Academy of Hockey in Pune, the academy is named in his honor to commemorate his contributions to hockey.
Speaking after the award ceremony, Chaudhary said: "We were always with the local community. Tata Steel has supported sporting activities since the founding of the Tata Institute of Sports and the Indian Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1953.
The Tata Trusts are trying to tap this potential by actively working in underserved parts of the country and opening up new ways to upgrade. The Trustees believe that, in addition to promoting health and well-being, promoting sport will also help to increase income in India's underdeveloped regions, where people depend largely on agriculture and livestock farming. For the first time, sport and training programmes for children in rural areas of India are being offered at grassroots level. In addition, the Tata Foundations have adopted sport as an innovative development issue, creating new opportunities for education, health, employment, and economic development in underprivileged communities.
The Dutch architectural offices were commissioned by the Tata Trusts and Tata Steel to design and design the academy. We hope to produce world-class players on the international stage through our academy, "said Pravin Tiwari, CEO of the Tata Tata Foundation.
Before the I-League, a lot of people told me that if I performed well I would represent India. If anyone in my community is ever allowed to play in an ISL match, let alone represent India, then I'm happy.
On the other hand, Odisha played a terrible game against Hyderabad FC in their opening match, where the Nizams dominated the entire match. To be fair, both teams created plenty of chances in the first half, but Bengaluru were the better team in possession and possession of the ball and, most importantly, the more dangerous team.
Mumbai dominated the early exchanges, Monroy diving to block Ogbeche's shot in the first minute. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu did well to keep Rehenesh on his side throughout the match by pulling off two absolute blinkers to ensure Bengaluru had to give everything to get a chance at a point. Mauricio scored from close range in the second half, while Odisha FC were the better team in the second half.
Jamshedpur failed to clear the ball after several Odisha attempts, and Shubham Sarangi's foul on the knee was cleared. Diego Mauricio eventually got a ball into the net but a Shubsham foul on Sarangsi's knees brought them another. Interim coach Javier Lopez hopes his team can show some fight in their final home game. This is his first time in the ISL and he will be looking to test his best qualities against local players.
