Reliance Foundation Young Champs also added, “It now has evolved to become a four-stage process, taking away the high-pressure single trial system which put pressure on the players especially. The scouts attend an induction program each season and are briefed on what to look for in a player while scouting. They have access to all the training sessions and games during this program,”
