MUMBAI: In line with its philosophy of creating a difference in the sphere of sports, especially soccer, Delhi Dynamos Football Club announced the launch of a novel initiative to take football to the grassroots by tying up with schools of national capital region of Delhi.

Under this programme, Delhi Dynamos will organize training camps and inter-school tournaments and create opportunities for the young generation. The campaign will kick start with the first ever Junior Dynamos Inter-School Championship, a seven-a-side football tournament, to be played in four zones of Delhi/NCR across three different age categories (U12, U14 and U17).

 

The first leg of the junior championship will be played from 19-22 August at Jaypee Sports Complex, Greater Noida and Ajanta Public School, Gurgaon. It will feature the top schools from East Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida and Gurgaon. A week later, action will shift to DDA Sports Complex, Vasant Kunj and Ganga International School as the young prodigies from schools of central, south, north and west Delhi will showcase their football skills.

The Zonal Champions of the Junior Dynamos Inter-School Championship would then get the opportunity to play at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium training ground as they face each other in a knockout format to seize the ultimate crown – The Junior Dynamos School Champion.

Commenting on the Junior Dynamos program, Den Networks head new initiatives and Director Den Soccer Piyush Goyal said: “Aligning with schools is the best way to identify and promote talent and football is no exception. We are kick starting this elaborate campaign across NCR and four other cities in the very first edition of ISL .We have seen the passion for football growing by leaps and bounds. There is raw talent and energy in the youngsters and we are here to channelize this energy. I am confident that  with  guidance from top notch coaches, and our commitment, these players will surely make a mark at various levels including international tournaments.”

While these players will attack and defend on the field, the Junior Dynamos Scouts will constantly analyse their performance to select the best 100 players (U14 and U17) to be trained under the Junior Dynamos Coaches for the next two-months on full scholarship. These young players will then play in the Junior Dynamos Elite League at JLN Stadium training ground during ISL match days.

Based on the performance, Scouts would then select the top 30 players (U14) who would form the Delhi Dynamos Youth Team. The chosen stars will undergo a six month long training program under the Junior Dynamos Coaches on full scholarship. These players will represent Delhi Dynamos in Youth Leagues across India. Scouting exercise will also continue for the U17 FIFA World Cup 2017 – India Dream Team.

With a mission to identify talented players and train them using international methods, the Club will also organise the Junior Dynamos Inter-School City Championship at Chandigarh, Dehradun, Jaipur and Kanpur in North India. These inter-school championships will be played in the months of September, October and November 2014.
