Singh believes that in order for children in the higher training programme to perform well, certain measures need to be taken. This includes ensuring that the children are well looked after, which involves maintaining a healthy diet and balancing their studies and practice sessions. Additionally, providing kits and necessary infrastructure to the children is essential to their success. However, Singh emphasizes that the coach also needs to be in tune with each child to help them perform to the best of their abilities. He commends the Sportsline team for providing a world-class setup and believes that nurturing children through this programme could lead to national success, making the country proud.
