Physical Literacy and Sports Education
India needs to have a clear Physical Literacy pathway that will help the future generations to remain physically literate throughout their entire lives. We believe that we can accomplish this through collaboration with all the stakeholders, innovative use of existing infrastructure and resources, and an inclusive mindset.
ELMS Sports Foundation’s Physical Literacy initiative is aimed at creating healthy and happy society through Physical Literacy. In this endeavour, children are the most critical segment for impact. With consideration of most children in govt schools in country, ELMS is focused on creating Physical Literacy opportunity for every child in society. Towards this, ELMS is helping government school teachers, coaches, and other similar professionals to give their students the experience of Physical Literacy at schools, homes and community.
ELMS Sports Foundation offers workshops, programmes, resources and consultancy that support the cause of Physical Literacy. ELMS creates and delivers customised content for the training programmes through our in-house team of subject matter experts and learning and development consultants in areas like Physical literacy, human values, sports psychology, sports science, Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) and pedagogy. Our programs are being implemented in various states across country.
ELMS wants our country to do well in High-Performance Sports at the international sporting events. Needless to say, system development is critical to the success of any sports. Like majority government organisations, sports leadership is provided by general administrators without any specific sports administration qualifications. After interaction with different stakeholders in the sport ecosystem - coaches, administrators, sports organisations, parents and athletes – ELMS Sports Foundation realised the need for a High Performance Sports Leadership Programme.
ELMS Sports Foundation is in talks with leading institutes from all over the world to develop a world-class High-Performance Leadership Programme for current and next-generation Sports administrators of the nation. ELMS is advocating for the development of a highly effective system for High-Performance Sports.
Public Private Partnerships
ELMS Sports Foundation is working on Public-Private Partnerships-- collaborating with government and public organisations, including Ministries, Departments and Sports Foundations. ELMS promotes and practices Public-Private Partnerships in all initiatives. ELMS believes that private partners can complement and supplement the work done by government and various sports bodies across India. We are creating linkages between existing government infrastructure and private providers through a hub-and-spokes model. We value our key partnerships with central, state and regional communities, organisations, and governments. Without them, it wouldn’t be possible for us to continue our work on the front-lines of Physical Literacy and High-Performance Sports.
