Feet on the ground with an eye for the future.
Indian track Foundation is a registered trust in India, which was created to develop and produce multiple medals for India on the track (athletics).
We have a board of trustees, who work passionately as a team to raise funds for our project.
We scout, recruit, house, educate, train and develop raw talent from the most interior tribal and rural parts of India. The project was developed and initiated in 2018, and is based in Ooty, Tamil Nadu, 2250 meters above sea level. Our athletes are aged between 10 and 15 years, and live in the ‘Home of Champions’, our athletes housing facility in the Nilgiris.
The athletes train twice a day, six days a week with a single point focus of bringing laurels for our country, India. The athletes, compete at district, state and national level competition, and will hopefully very soon be representing the country internationally too. Each athlete studies everyday at the athletes home itself, where we have a teacher who comes and teaches the the curriculum which is based in a tie-up school in Jharkhand. The athletes travel back to their villages, once year to give examinations. All our athletes are screened and selected after months of hard work of our ground scouting staff.
We have a wonderful team that works with immense passion in order to bring athletes with the blessing of their parents into our foundation. Currently, we house 10 elected athletes and a warden who oversees daily operations under the watchful eye of the head coach.
