The Andhra Pradesh Sports School was established with the concept of nourishing the talented children of the State to excel both in sports at National and International level and also academically vide G.O.Ms.No.23, EG&YS Department dated:18-03-1991. On attaining success in this project it has been decided to establish sports schools at Regional levels to tap the rural talent to excel both sports and academics wise. The Regional Sports School, Dr. YSR District is one of such establishment.
Orders have been issued for establishment of a Regional Sports School in the District of Kadapa with an objective to hunt and nurture the sports talent at the regional level also to facilitate the Andhra Pradesh Sports School, Hakimpet in getting useful and talented sports persons. The Regional Sports School which was established in the district of Kadapa in the year 2006 is located in an area of 63.44 acres of land with required infrastructure sanctioned and being developed.
The Andhra Pradesh Sports School, Hakimpet was established independently duly earmarking separate funds and sanctioning required staff, but whereas, the Regional Sports School, Dr. YSR District was established and kept under the control of Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh. It has come to the notice of Government that though the functions of both the schools are similar, the Regional Sports School is facing a lot of hardships for want of sufficient funds. Inspite of the hardships the achievements of the Regional Sports School are up to the expectations. Therefore, it is proposed to upgrade the Dr.YSR Regional Sports School, Kadapa as a State Level Institution on par with the Andhra Pradesh Sports School, Hakimpet, duly earmarking separate funds and sanctioning staff to achieve the aims and objectives of the School more effectively and efficiently.
The Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad in his letter, has stated that the Sports School at Kadapa is located in an area of 63.44 Acres and the required Academic Infrastructure up to Intermediate Standard and Sporting Infrastructure at the school which includes an outdoor stadium with Athletic track and Hockey field. Construction of Indoor Stadium and Administrative Block are under progress.
He has also stated that the performance of School has been improving every year and in the current year (2012-13) 46 medals have been won by the students of the Sports School at National level and ensuring regular flow of funds is therefore necessary to nurture sporting talent and produce medal winners and outstanding sports persons.
Given the excellent infrastructure, the intake capacity of the school, the number of staff already working at the school, it is very much necessary to allocate a separate budget to Kadapa Sports School on the lines of Hakimpet Sports School. This will not only strengthen the financial position of the school but it will also go a long way in nurturing the sporting talent in the State on the lines of Hakimpet School.
The Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, has therefore, requested that the Government may provide regular budget to Dr. YSR Sports School, Kadapa on par with the A.P. Sports School, Hakimpet.
After having examined the matter in detail, Government have decided to upgrade the Sports School, Kadapa to a State Level Institution on par with Andhra Pradesh Sports School, Hakimpet.
Accordingly, Government hereby upgrade the Regional Sports School, Kadapa to that of a State Level Institution on par with the Andhra Pradesh Sports School, Hakimpet, Secundrabad.
Necessary orders with regard to the formulation of the rules for management, modalities of functioning of the School shall be issued separately.
