Limited technical literature on sports in the country, particularly for the coaches working in the field wing and those engaged in training upcoming sportspersons has necessitated us to produce a treatise in every sports discipline covered in the academic courses at the NIS on the fundamentals of general theory and the methods of training: a subject profusely in vogue.

This compendium is the result of the Coaches empirical knowledge gained over the years in teaching and coaching, international seminars, higher studies overseas and coaching stints as also with the national camps for mega sports events.
