Kerala School Sports meet to be held for 5 days from next year
Kannur: The state school sports meet will be held for 5 days from next year onwards. The sports department will send a recommendation to the government as part of improving the sports fest. The modification would be done considering the children’s health condition and their basic rights. It is learnt that competitions which are held without any gap affect the children’s health condition and this too will be taken note of.
The major modifications:
Sports festival will be held for 5 days
If stadiums are equipped with floodlights, then the meet would be for 4 days. Only the Thiruvananthapuram University stadium has this state-of-the-art facility.
Stadiums must have all basic facilities
Safety first. The complete field will be regulated for trespassing. Only one throw event will be held at a particular time. The safety factor is applicable even for media.
Sub-district competitions will be withdrawn and competitions will be held under various educational districts-level. The winners will proceed towards Revenue district meet.
The number of events to be held on a single day will be reduced. Definite time should be given for different meets.
