At Sports Asia Foundation, we believe that the development of India’s sports industry is crucial to the overall economic growth and social well being of our nation.With this over arching purpose we are partnering with the United States Sports Academy, the global leader in sports education, to offer high quality post-secondary, non-degree certification programs to students. These programs would be taken through an agreement with the Academy and the Administrative Staff College of India.
We know that historically sport has been the economic driver for nations around the world. More than $600 billion is generated globally each year through sports events that require paid admissions, and even more revenue is generated in the areas of recreational sports, personal fitness, and sports as a leisure activity.
In addition to this, the United Nations affiliated International Labor Organization, an organization that has cooperated with the Academy in this area, has found that besides the formal education, sport is the best activity that prepare the youth for constructing productive lives in society as well as at the workplace.
We are excited to partner with the Academy since it has been a leader in sport education around the world for more than 45 years with a reach in more than 67 countries. With this association we are certain that our partnership will reap reap benefits for the people of India. The Academy’s high quality, sport-specific education courses are designed to meet the professional development needs of aspiring working professionals of our country.
Since its inception nearly half a century half-century ago, the Academy has leveraged its role and resources as a special mission sports university to make a global impact through quality sport instruction, research and service. These contributions have varied in their scope from a fully-charged conduct of a nation’s entire national sporting effort to the level of individual coaching clinics, seminars, and symposia.
The union of the Sports Asia Foundation, with its understanding of the needs of the Indian sports sector, and the Academy with its understanding of the global sports market added with the latest practices that are prevalent in the sports profession, promise to provide the students enrolling in our cooperative programs with the tools they need to succeed in this exciting field.
