Promoting Kabaddi at the State Level

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, SDM Imran Rashid highlighted the importance of promoting kabaddi, an indigenous sport deeply rooted in Indian culture. He emphasized the need for more kabaddi tournaments within the state. These tournaments would not only provide a platform for young players to showcase their talent but also increase their visibility and enhance their chances of being selected for national and international competitions.

By creating a strong talent pool within Jammu and Kashmir, the state can contribute significantly to the national kabaddi scene. The Summer Coaching Camp serves as a stepping stone towards achieving this goal.

The launch of the Kabaddi Summer Coaching Camp marks a positive development for the sport in Jammu and Kashmir. With the combined efforts of the JKAKA, the J&K Sports Council, and dedicated coaches, aspiring kabaddi players across the state now have a valuable opportunity to refine their skills and chase their dreams.
