Athletes Development

The strongest challenge and perhaps the most complex one is the athletes’ development. With 90 – 95% of the kids of active sports playing age in schools against the enormous demand on the class room and exam orientated education system. However, with co-operation from the Ministry of Education, BAAF has created an atmosphere to infuse our programs into the educational curriculum for primary schools with the kids’ athletics program that is accepted and introduced in all the 20 dzongkhags.

However, a humble step towards this has been put to practice and currently we carry out the following activities:

  1. Growth and development related athletics programs.
  2. After school hours programs.
  3. Age related competitions.
  4. Youth and Junior athletics.
  5. Road races / middle long distance events.
