Anantapur Sports Academy

PSD in collaboration with Anantapur Sports Academy (ASA), conducted a grassroots survey to ascertain the impact of sports on the development of rural children in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. Focusing on the physical, social and emotional development of children aged 10-15 years, the survey developed by PSD incorporated a questionnaire along with physical tests to ascertain the impact that participating in sports has on the children. A total of 468 children from six different sporting disciplines in the ASA program took part in the survey. Additionally, 80 children, from similar socio-economic backgrounds and regions, who are not part of ASA’s programs, participated in the survey as part of a control group.
