The JSW Sports Grassroots Swimming Program will be rolled out in eight locations — Bhubaneshwar, Sambalpur, Balangir, Boudh, Sonepur, Angul, Ganjam and Mayurbhanj.
Twenty coaches including two regional heads have been selected by JSW Sports for these eight locations.

I wish these coaches good luck and we are confident, with a robust grassroots initiative, the state of Odisha will be able to produce champion swimmers in the coming years,” stated Vineel Krishna, Special Secretary, Odisha Sports.
