Sports has gained tremendous popularity all over the globe and this healthy trend is likely to continue in the future also. China, Japan and South Korea have made a good progress in the sports field. The secret of their success are coupled with the coordinated efforts of various agencies involved in promotion of sports creation of infrastructure from thegrassroot level and intensive coaching. As compared to them, there hasbeen continuous deterioration in India's performance over the years despite various sports programmes.Attempts have been made earlier to study and analyse the reasons for India's poor performance in international sports. A committee headed by Sri Amrik Singh was appointed by the Govt. of India in 1987 to study the report of the Indian Olympic Association on the performance of India at the Tenth Asian Games at Seoul. The Government constituted another Committee, headed by Sri M.M. Rajendran in 1991 to review all theSports Schemes.The main problem lies with the lack of sports culture in thecountry. In our educational curricula, more emphasis is on academics and sports remains the most neglected area. Parents also do not like toencourage their children to take up Sports seriously as it does not offer any career opportunities.With the above background, it is hoped that, this study shallcontribute towards a better understanding of National Coaching Scheme of Sports Authority of India and the Policies placed towards promotion of sports in the Region as well as in the Country.
