India can do wonders in sports if our young sports talents are recognized and supported at the grass root level and supporting pillars of their performances – coaches, training clubs and educational institutes are given the due credits. In this direction, Gamatics India Pvt Ltd in association with NSRCEL – IIM Bangalore and KHEL Foundation have started an initiative called STEPP (Sports Talent Exploration and Promotion Program).

The pilot project is STEPP-Karnataka ( focusing on talents in Karnataka.
