Players take out time to visit Spastic Society In Bangalore

A glimpse of the team with the children
Taking a break from the daily hockey training, several members of our senior national hockey team visited the Spastic Society of Karnataka’s unit in Bangalore on 16th December 2011.
Away from the hectic training and preparatory schedule ahead of the Olympic Qualification tournament in 2012, players along with Chief Coach Michael Nobbs managed some time to meet the kids suffering from Neuro-­‐Muscular and Developmental Disabilities. Coach and Captain Bharat Chetri along with a dozen of players spent almost 2 hours with these kids in their coaching and art centres.
The Spastics Society of Karnataka is a Non‐Government Organization(NGO) dedicated to the welfare of persons with Neuro-­‐Muscular and Developmental Disabilities. The society provides a Comprehensive Package of Diagnostic and Intervention services to persons with Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Mental Retardation, Multiple Disabilities and Learning Disabilities.
