CO-HOST IN SWIMMING AND TABLE TENNIS AT NATIONAL LEVEL

      It has been experienced that very large numbers of athletes reach at National level in above
      disciplines thus making difficult for one school to accommodate them in one campus. Hence, it
      has been decided that a school as Co-host too may be identified at National level, which shall
      help the main host for lodging & boarding of either Boys‟ or Girls‟ in their campus. However the
      competitions may be held at one venue.

        some nearby school in their city that could assist in organization as Co-host along with them. The
        Co-host will be provided with an extra grant equivalent to 25% of the total committed grant.

        In case the school hosting any of the above discipline can accommodate all the participating
        athletes in one campus them self, the identification of Co-host may be avoided in that particular
        discipline.

        Due to unavoidable circumstances, if a particular school has been given the responsibility to host
        the competitions for two Cluster or Zone; in that case the school will be provided one and a half
        times of the total committed grant at that level.
