Identify resources, support and coaching staff for each discipline;
Build teams at national and international levels; and,
Forge alliances and partnerships with individuals, sports bodies worldwide, governments and educational institutions and everybody who supports the cause of sports and sports persons.
Through its tournaments, SSPF will identify talent and encourage them to compete for their respective district and State teams to be able to rise to national and international levels of competitive sport.

SSPF has put together a chain of coordinators to ensure that the school children will get to showcase their talent and be rewarded as well. The coordinators at the cluster, district and state levels will work in tandem with schools in providing the talent the right platform to show their skills.

A combination of selectors, umpires/referees/match officials will pick talented players for trials after the conclusion of district, State and National level tournaments. A set of players would then be selected to undergo well-organised coaching camps at each level. The camps will provide appropriate coaching and physical training to the selected players. At the end of the coaching camp at each level, the respective district, State or National team shall be picked.


The NTSN programme has been envisaged as an event for schools, though the pyramid will see district and State teams being chosen for the higher levels of the tournament
