JAMMU, Sep 10: In a joint meeting of Adventure Tour Operators Association of Kashmir (ATOAK) and J&K Ski and Mountaineering Association (JKSMA) the members of both organizations expressed their gratitude to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for supporting the cause to develop adventure sports among local youth.

The Member Sports Council and President ATOAK Rauf Tramboo suggested the Council that adventure sports should be made mandatory in schools. In her quick response Mehbooba directed the J&K State Sports Council officials to focus attention on Adventure Sports as well like all other sports as we have ample scope for these sports in J&K State and being the highest job oriented activity. In the 56th Annual General Meeting of JKSSC she expressed her deep concern towards Adventure Sports for which we have natural facilities available here.

She suggested the Council to arrange adventure training programs in all its disciplines like aero, aquatic and terrestrial sports as we have mountains and water in abundance in our state. She stressed upon that these activities should be started from grassroots levels for the school going children. Pertinently ATOAK is active in developing adventure sports including Paragliding, Rafting, Climbing and Trekking etc these days. The organization conducted several training programs for some schools recently. The President JKSMA Muhammad Yusuf informed that we are planning to organise a mass adventure sports program under the name and style “Adventure for All” soon at International Youth Hostel-cum-Adventure Club Sonamarg in which nearly 400 Students from Class 5th to 8th of different schools are taking part.

The organizations related to adventure also conveyed their thanks to Minister for Youth Services & Sports Syed Imran Reza Ansari for assuring his support to make the endeavor a grand success.
