Shooting News : National Camp for 34 Olympic core group of shooters to start from Aug 1

Following a pre-scheduled meeting of the Governing Body of the National Rifle Association of India a decision has been taken to schedule a National Camp for the 34 Olympic Core Group of Shooters from August 1 2020 at Dr. Karni Singh Shooting Range in New Delhi. NRAI would ensure all necessary coordination and support in this regard to ensure a smooth resumption of National Shooting activities, in keeping with all the Government of India and Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports guidelines in place. It may be recalled that the Sports Authority of India had declared the DKSSR open and available for training for the core group on July 8, 2020, following which a few locally based members of the group have been availing the training and practice facilities. Meanwhile, it was also decided that the Manav Rachna University campus, which is an ISSF training academy, and located close to the DKSSR in Faridabad or a Government approved accommodation, would house the core group, coaches and its support staff. NRAI would also arrange transport to and from the venue. Manav Rachna has demonstrated to the Governing Body that they can provide world-class hygiene conditions and deploy the necessary safety precautions as required in the times. The NRAI President, further explained that all campers athletes, officials, coaches and support staff shall be segregated and kept under the strictest of quarantine-type conditions and shall initially be required to submit a valid and recent Covid-19 Test result from their home locations and only then shall they be permitted to join the camp, that is exclusively being conducted for the elite Olympic Core Group Athletes and shall be a combined camp. Attendance shall be compulsory for this camp as the unprecedented circumstances found globally with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic dictates that NRAI’s options at being accommodating are virtually zero
