NADA, NCERT tie up for value-based sports education in schools



The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) and the National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT) have collaborated to create awareness in schools about value-based sports education that includes anti-doping measures and affirmative sporting values.

Speaking to a news portal, Ritu Sain, Director-General NADA said, “Students need to be introduced to value-based sports education from the early stage of schooling so that they adopt clean sports practices once they attain an elite level in sports. The first part deals with imparting sporting values of equity, fair play, and integrity which involves interaction with students, parents and teachers.”

The key activities that will be undertaken through this partnership between NADA and NCERT include developing e-content in an accessible format on sports values and ethics. The UNESCO Value-Based Sports Education toolkit will also be promoted in every classroom.
