The State Member Units got a general idea about the key aspects to keep in mind while resuming sports activities
“We have been following all the protocols stated in the Hockey India SOPs and are ensuring our players have a safe environment to resume training. Only limited training has begun for a small group of players who are from the senior category and few are from junior groups. We are hopeful in the coming weeks, more players will return to the field as sports always gives a positive outlook to life in general and prepares children to face challenges of any kind,” stated Mr G Harsha Vardhan, General Secretary, Hockey Andhra Pradesh.
