Sports manpower is an important aspect of coaching services. Most of the countries in the world lack resources for sports coaching; hence, the need for proper allocation and efficient utilization. There is no policy on sports manpower or materials provided in the National Health Policy.

The government should urgently address the need for arresting the trend of brain drain among qualified coaches.
