DYSS Inter-District events witness low participation
I Will Look Into The Matter: Director
Srinagar, Sep 30: The provincial level Inter-District competitions organised by the Department of Youth Services and Sports (DYSS), Kashmir Division have turned out as flop shows as majority of the districts failed to turn up for the events.
The DYSS organised Judo championship for boys and girls at Youth Hostel Srinagar recently. Out of the 12 districts, only three turned up and rest of the nine skipped the event. While host Srinagar turned up with full bench, Shopian had five players (boys only) and Budgam had one male player only.
Srinagar participated with 23 girls and 23 boys and all of them got selected for the State level event without any competition due to lack of teams/players.
The next Inter-district event organised was Tennis ball cricket championship at Government High School Sonwar and that too had same fate as only three teams, Srinagar, Budgam and Ganderbal out of 12 turned up for the event. The two day event concluded on same day.
As it was not enough to wake up DYSS, the Inter-district Spektakraw, Tennikoit and Doge ball championships held at Youth Hostel also met the same fate.
Spektakraw had one player from Islamabad (Anantnag) while four players from host Srinagar. Doge ball had only three teams, Srinagar, Budgam and Baramulla. Tennikoit had four players from Baramulla and two from Srinagar. Thus with such a low participation, the department concluded all the events on same day.
With no competitions at provincial level events and teams selected for State level directly on the basis of participant present on the giving day, experts fear that Kashmir based teams would be outplayed at Jammu.
“It is not good that our events that too Kashmir level were held in such a way without any major participation. These events used to witness high participation,” said noted sports person of Valley Reyaz Ahmad.
“These events used to be the basis of selection for Inter-Division event between Jammu and Kashmir provinces. After getting selected here they had to compete against Jammu players for selection in State level team. Now when the players got selection directly it is obvious that Jammu players will outsmart them,” he added.
“During the last couple of years, number of top officials of the department retired, which has created a void. They were experienced ones and knew how to organise certain events,” sources said.
“The other reason is that number of Districts Offices are without heads and are being managed by in charges,” they added.
When contacted Director DYSS, JP Singh said the matter has come to his notice and he will look into it.
“If things go like this then it will have detrimental effect on our preparations for national events,” he added.
