The residential academy at Bokaro has a capacity of 40 cadets. What sets this excellent academy apart from the several which have come up in India over the past few years is its whole-hearted dedication to the development of the trainees. Since its very beginning, the vision of the academy has been to provide every deserving child a pathway to professional football, no matter what his economic background is.
Recruited cadets at the academy are provided every facility, from their medical and schooling to their clothing and apparels. With the steel plant being a largely integrated facility, every single service ranging from schools, hospitals and transportation have been set up by SAIL within its township.
Over the years, the success-rate of the academy has been phenomenal. Many of the cadets are snapped up by the academies of East Bengal, Mohun Bagan and Shillong Lajong the moment they graduate from their three-year program. The rest of the batch moves on to the senior academy at Burnpur.
The success-rate of graduates continuing their dreams of professional football at a higher level is more than 90 per cent, according to Rajak. While there have been many graduates who have gone on to play in the I-League and the Indian Super League (ISL) over the years, the likes of Prabir Das (ATK), Abhishek Halder (India U19s and Indian Arrows) and Ginkaholen Haokip (recruited by East Bengal this year) are the most recent examples.
