NRAI to resume national camp for India's Olympic core group of shooters from Aug 1

NRAI to resume national camp for India's Olympic core group of shooters from Aug 1

New Delhi, Jun 16 (UNI) The National Rifles Association of India (NRAI) on Thursday announced that the Olympic core group of 34 Indian shooters will return to camp training at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range (DKSSR) in the national capital from August 1.

The NRAI said the decision to restart training was taken at a meeting of its governing body, after carefully weighing the COVID-19 threat. It will follow all the guidelines of the Government of India and the Union Sports Ministry to conduct this camp properly.

Notably, the Karni Singh range was reopened for use on July 8, following which a few locally based members of the group have been availing the training and practice facilities.

"...utmost and most meticulous planning needs to be placed above all in the very strictest and most sterile conditions that we must now assure," NRAI President Raninder Singh said.

"The health and safety of the players and coaches being paramount, we cannot afford any loose ends. NRAI can today say that it is fully prepared to resume a cautious and phased recommencement of National Shooting activities from next month," he added.

Meanwhile, the Manav Rachna University campus, which is an International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) training academy and located close to the DKSSR, will house the core group, coaches and its support staff.

NRAI would also arrange transport to and from the venue.

The NRAI has appointed High Performance Manager and former India shooter Ronak Pandit as the Nodal Officer in charge of overall co-ordination for hygiene and medical protocols of the camp.

He would be the vital link between athletes, coaches, support staff, the final accommodation authorities and SAI’s approved medical staff. His responsibilities would be to ensure that all necessary safety precautions and guidelines related to Covid-19 are being followed and implemented by all those involved in the camp.

"...the NRAI shall be issuing its own and additional protocols that shall be strictly implemented in addition to those issued by SAI India, and naturally shall also be adhered to," the governing body's statement read.
