This batch of 30 shall be under dedicated Referees Instructors and Fitness Instructors for two years and undergo three-four training exposures per year. Referees who show potential for growth after each exposure shall be retained and called for next exposures. After two years, the best of the lot would be further nurtured through our top level development project for the next two years.
The intention is to produce as many World Class Referees in India by 2016. This is a continous development project and has been launched for the first-time in India. Mr. Pradip Nag, Mr. K Sankar, Ms. Bentla D’Coth, and Mr. M. K Roy are the instructors for the course. A Sports Psychologist and a Coach would also be involved during the later stages.
