Chandigarh, January 3

Decision of the UT Sports Department on changing the timings of all coaching centres has not gone down well with many coaches.

As per the new schedule (issued last month December 22), the complexes will now open from 7am to 9 am in the morning session and from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm in the evening sessions. Many coaches claimed the new timings were clashing with the school timings. “The coaches have been asked to perform duty from 7 am to 9 am and from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm. These timings are clashing with the school hours and trainees are having a tough time coping with it. Since schools have been opened, it will be difficult for players to come and practise under these allotted slots. The administration should rethink on the timings and adjust accordingly,” said a senior coach, seeking anonymity.

These timings have been implemented till February. The duty timings for managers have been kept 10 am to 2 pm and from 3 pm to 6 pm. “In winter, the school timings get changed and the coaching centres should be opened accordingly. Both sports and education departments work under the UT Administration,” said another coach.

“It’s a normal routine to change timings of the functioning of coaches and other staff members of coaching centres in winter. If coaches have some objections, they can give feedback to the authorities so that the problem, if any, can be solved amicably,” said a senior official.
