Hockey is becoming the new attraction for Kashmiri girls with its rising popularity. The girls are becoming passionate about the sport, and it is also leading to the empowerment of women in the valley.
Sports provide the girls with an opportunity to showcase their talent and make a bright future.
The girls are showing a keen interest in participating in all types of sports.
The Jammu and Kashmir Sports Council and Kashmir Hockey Association are organising a number of hockey tournaments in the valley, and the girls are also participating in them with full spirits.
The girls in the valley are showing great performances in all types of games, including water sports, basketball, martial arts, football, rugby, and hockey as well.
As a result of this, the government too is trying to provide them with all types of facilities and is organising a series of tournaments.
The Organiser and President of Kashmir Hockey Academy said that games are being organised at night so that the youth stay away from drugs and remain busy playing sports, which will be beneficial for them.
“We are preparing for the games at night. Our main aim is to keep the youth engaged. Night is the time when people go towards drugs. That’s why we have laid focus on keeping games at night. ” he said,
He further added, “:We hope that the National Sports of the country will bring the youth back from drugs. Turfs are being laid for the hockey games, and preparations are being made for other games too. We will soon inaugurate the night facility for cricket matches.”
