Ashwini’s Sports Foundation (ASF) was founded in 2010 by Ashwini Nachappa, one of India’s best-known sprinters. An Asian Games medalist and having represented India at the 1984 Olympics, Ashwini realized the dire need to create a system that will nurture potential athletes consistently.
Located in Gonikoppal, South Coorg and based on the same 27-acre campus as Karaumbiah’s Academy for Learning & Sport (KALS), a K-12 school where academics and sport go hand-in-hand, ASF is a non-profit organization that grooms talented athletes from a young age in school all the way to the international level.
World-class infrastructure backed by high-quality training programs is what ASF is built on. The ASF Arena comprises of the SAI-ASF Athletics Centre, The Embassy-ASF Shooting Range & Gymnasium, a 6-lane, 25m swimming pool as well as residential facilities for coaches and athletes.
