SDCES promote sports at school level. Hockey is considered to be India’s national game by many, is seeing an unprecedented resurgence. SDCES promote our hockey by regularly conducting an Inter School Hockey Tournament in the memory of one of our patron Mr. Raj Kumar Verma’s father Late Shri Daulat Ram Verma for last 8 years in Delhi on Astoturf ground, mainly in National Stadium or in Shivaji Stadium.
In this tournament all major schools of Delhi NCR region are invited alongwith team from other states to bring on the competitiveness among schools.. We believe that boys and girls that participate in our program learn more than just the skill of hockey. They learn determination, teamwork and personal responsibility. The tournament will be played on League cum Knock-out basis in the categories i.e. Boys U-14 and Boys U-17 segments & Girls U-17. As the matches were played on the Astoturf ground, players from various schools get the hand on experience in playing on International standards, which boost their enthusiasm.
Apart from the winners & runners up, trophies & prizes were also given to third place & for fair play team. The individual performances were also recognized too (for e.g. – best player & emerging player of the tournament, player of the match etc.) and also best coaches of in each category
We are thankful to Mr. Raj Kumar Verma & Verma Family for associating us in the event which was organised in the loving memory of his beloved Father Late Shri Daulat Ram Verma Ji, for past 8 years in the month of Novemeber / December.
Our main aim is to revive the game of hockey at grass root level by conducting this tournament.
