The scheme envisaged induction of sportspersons, who had performed well at Sr. National Competitions, for further advanced scientific training at the Regional Centres of SAI for 330 days in a year. These Centres of Excellence operate as regular coaching camps for the best available talent in India and provide concurrent layers of skilled sports persons, giving a wider choice of talent and continuity for selection to National Teams and provide alternative second and third options for the National Teams.

Employed trainees are also admitted under the Scheme and are provided the same facilities as those provided to other trainees.
