It’s a great pleasure for me to announce that the Academy of Sports Sciences Research and Management is working in partnership and under the guidance of Delhi Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research University (DPSRU).
ASSRM was founded by the Sports Infrastructure and Talent Development Society in collaboration with DPSRU from 2017 to 2018. The three-year degree course under the guidance of DPRSU prepares the students to take up the challenge of preparing the young people of India to partake in different sports events at state, national, and global levels.
I am aware it’s still a new program. However, I am confident enough that the learning tools, training, and infrastructure presented by DPSRU are of top-quality, allowing students to achieve higher levels of practical and theoretical knowledge. This knowledge will help them in building a treasure of young Indians who will help bring greater sporting honours to the nation.
Our (ASSRM) effort has been welcomed with honours from a wide array of sectors, including the Delhi government. It was a huge honour for us that the Honourable Deputy Chief Minister and the Higher Education Minister of Delhi Government Mr. Manish Sisodia paid a visit to our institution. It was the time during the first academic year of the new degree course. They valued the efforts of SITDS and DPSRU apart from providing valuable support in the continuance of accomplishing their goals.
Due to the amazing work done by our institution, the Delhi Government has made the decision to add a one-year certificate program in the academic year of 2018 to 2019. It would be called "Certificate in Sports Fitness & Yoga Application" and "Certificate in Sports Digitalization and Performance Management."
We can see a massive demand arising in the sports industry as the global market is heading towards a trillion-dollar market. Moreover, the country doesn’t even represent one percent of the world’s market share. Therefore, our country has one way to go for more participation to claim a better share in the world sporting market, particularly with world level performances in the fields of table tennis, kabaddi, cricket, badminton. Thus, more and more parents are encouraging their kids to take up sports at a competitive level.
For instance, P. Gopichand has transformed the perception of Indians by producing players and athletes of the level of Shrikant, P.V. Sandhu, and Saina Nehwal. The massive success of the Kabaddi leagues has provided an impetus to our traditional sports at block and village levels.
Our goal at Sports Infrastructure and Talent Development Society (SITDS) is to bring in the EDGE along with the application of sports sciences. We strive to help young players and athletes get the extra leeway to accomplish their dreams by building sports scientists to further support in determining talent and groom them in a scientific way.
