What can you do?

At Usha ScHool of Athletics (U.S.H.A.) our aim is simple but ambitious - to help children and young people talented in athletics to reach their full potential and also to boost the sports culture across the country.

U.S.H.A. presents an opportunity before every patriotic Indian and all sports lovers to be a part of this noble movement to give the best to our budding athletes aiming at medals in international meets culminating in the Olympics in the years to come.

Choose what you like to do from the below table and that will take us a long way; and carry our children closer to the victory stand.
