With your help, your contributions, whether big or small – we will strive to provide sport and education programmes to every child who wants to participate and grow.
It is not just a question of achievement and excellence, and winning against the odds that keeps us going but the empowerment of girl athletes with positive energy and thinking, keeping them out of troublesome issues and moving on with earnest. Usha School of Athletics develops today's youth into tomorrow's positive citizens of the community!
As quoted by P.T. Usha “After many years of experience in athletics, I am convinced that what we lack in India is not talent, but the basic, modern and scientific facilities. If we train our young Indian sports talents nothing, not even Olympic medals, is unachievable.
Everyone thinks that bagging an Olympic medal is a difficult task. It is not. I would have certainly made it in the Los Angeles Olympics if I had a little more exposure in the 400m hurdles. Considering my limited exposure, I did well as I had participated only in two races before I went to Los Angeles. It was lack of experience in the 400m hurdles that cost me the gold medal. If India goes for a real, systematic and scientific approach, I am sure my country has a great athletic future.”
With your help, Usha School intends to facilitate a safe and positive environment for athletes to nurture their talents. Your contributions, whether big or small, will enable us to provide sport and education programmes to every child who wants to participate and grow.. Your support will allow us to share all of our programmes, activities, facilities and experience to more and more deserving girls who otherwise may never have the opportunity to experience and participate in these sport activities.
