Birth of an idea 


   Birth of an idea 


India can be a land of champions. However, all champions need self-belief and focus.

India on Track (IOT) has been set up to instil these core ideas in the youth of our country through sports.

We are committed to identifying and nurturing talent in every corner of India and we will do this through grassroots and specialized training programmes, Centres of Excellence and talent scouting camps. IOT is determined to provide the right platform to help young achievers on their way.

In stadiums, school grounds, parks and local compounds we see the air charged with self-belief. Belief in who we are and what we can achieve in the future. And we do this by sending India out to play.

India will be a land of champions.

Two Fold Objective

1 To create a system for raw talent to be carefully nurtured into world class athletes through high-level training while also creating opportunities for our talent pool to showcase their skills on the global stage.

2 To create recreational opportunities for children to learn and play a sport and imbibe the essential skills, fitness, technical and mental fortitude along with the satisfaction of participating in a productive and wholesome activity.

  • IOT is unwavering in its commitment to help India recognize and celebrate the power of sports, be it recreational or professional. We want to equip our next generation with the tools to help build a healthier, stronger nation that would have its roots as much in sports as other disciplines.
