ISLAMABAD Secretary Pakistan Kabaddi Federation (PKF) Mohammad Sarwar said that PKF would launch academies in major cities to groom the talent at grass root level. Talking to reporters on Wednesday at his office, Sarwar said that initially the federation would assemble talent camps at Lahore, Chichawatni and Faisalabad to hunt the talent from lower level. We will hire the services of able coaches for the training camp at regional level. The PKF will disburse handsome stipend among the coaches and players will be served proper food and Rs.100 daily to each player. Top national former kabaddi players have been selected for this job, he maintained. Sarwar, who is also secretary of Asian Kabbadi Federation, said that Mohammad Manshah and Mohammad Ali would train the teenagers at Lahore while Shahbaz Kalo and Badshah Gull at Faisalabad. Manzoor Ahmed and Mohammad Irfan will supervise the camp at Chichawatni, he further added. He said that only teenagers would be selected for the camp and they would be trained in circle style and Asian style simultaneously. The Federation will stage the same types of talent hunt camps at Rawalpindi, Multan and Sargodha to select the kabbadi talent, he viewed. Later, these camps will be converted into academies permanently. The federation will generate all funds by itself to run this programme. Through this programme the PKF will make the teams for international competition. This act will also bridge the gape senior and junior players, he said. Replying a question, regarding the international events, he said that federation was planning to hold international events in Islamabad very soon. Iran team has offered us to play a bilateral series in Islamabad or Tehran. We are working on it and we will organise big kabaddi event in Pakistan very soon, he concluded.
