Detiktoday.com – National sports development requires a policy as a guide for all sports stakeholders. For this reason, a sports Grand Design concept has been drafted which needs input from many parties. In connection with this, the Ministry of Youth and Sports held a Public Test for the Compilation of a Sports Grand Design.
The public test event was opened directly by the Indonesian Minister of Youth and Sport Zainudin Amali via virtual, Thursday (13/8) morning, from the Situation Room, Kemenpora, Jakarta. The event involved KONI, KOI, FORMI, leaders of sports, academics from various universities, sports observers and government agencies.
Menpora also appreciated this event, according to him, the sport grand design was a priority to be completed immediately. “I would like to express my appreciation to the Deputy for Sports Culture, the Deputy for the Improvement of Sports Achievement and all parties involved in this event. We are aware that the course of our sports coaching so far has not had a standard grand design and that we can use as a guideline for fitness. society as well as for our sports achievements, “he said.
“That is why we at Kemenpora finally think that sports coaching and also community restoration through sports must be done with a correct, comprehensive, long-term and sustainable design. And now we have entered the finalization stage and soon we want to convey it to the public. before we decide to become a grand design, we have to do a public test stage first, “he continued.
He continued, the grand design which will later be followed by a road map, is very important for our sports development, both for community sports and for achievement sports. Without it (grand design), we should not expect too much about the fitness of our society, about our sports achievements. And we do this long term, not just per event.
“Our current habit is to prepare our athletes 3 months ahead of a sports championship, and this is definitely not a good result. I am sure that and my friends also believe in it, we have agreed to create a grand design. What has been included in this grand design is since “We are still a child to adulthood and for fitness after a period of achievement is still required to be fit. Especially now, in a pandemic, fitness is very necessary. One way to avoid the corona virus is our immunity and that can be generated from fitness,” he explained .
“I really hope that on this occasion you can contribute thoughts, both field experience, theories, and information obtained from various sources of information. Hopefully it can enrich the content and make the grand design more weighty and comprehensive. hope the participants can produce recommendations at this event, “he concluded.
