LAHORE    -  Director General Sports Punjab, Adnan Arshad Aulakh Wednesday said that the ongoing month-long under-16 coaching and training camps of six games will serve as a suitable platform for potential youngsters of different games to hone their sports skills.    He said promotion of sports among youth is the government’s top priority.

   “The training and grooming of young players was badly ignored during the previous eras and we are focusing on this key feature because Pakistan can get quality players in different games only through proper honing,” he said.

Our camps will start after tough selection process and there will be no compromise on quality of training at camps,” he added. Aulakh said all the trials were conducted purely on merit. “We are quite hopeful to find dozens of talented players from month-long under-16 coaching and training camps . Sports Board Punjab will provide best facilities to camp trainees during the duration of camps of six games in different cities of the province.”
