Parents and OTHL players accept our gift of bi-Cycle

Bi-Cycles presented to promising OTHL Girl players


One Thousand Hockey Legs, popularly known as OTHL, is a sports promotion organization. However, its identity is  empowerment of girls through the medium of sports. The OTHL avails natural benefits of sports to promote it among girls, who are otherwise idling or involved in unproductive areas -- and present them a new vista for future. 

While OTHL's core value is sports promotion, it also imparts basic skills in other areas. One such is making girls ride bi-cycles. This we understand improve their confidence and avoid dependence on others for short commuting. We keep two bi-cycles in each of our four OTHL Centres in Delhi and encourage new faces to learn cycling. Senior girls in the set up help them learning. 

Its certain every girl-player in OTHL is mandated to ride cycling. Its also one of the most enjoyable activities.

Now, we have moved beyond just making the young ones learn cycle and thus be confident of themselves. Knowing cycle riding certainly boasts their morale we forge ahead. 

What if they will own a cycle?

It will be icying on the cake. Based on our bench mark social survey we found not even one out of 10 of our stake holders have a bi-cycle! 

Providing bi-cycle will certainly motivate them to do things better. Keeping this thought in mind, we selected a set of girls for providing them with the gift of their lifetime. The following critera were followed by the Selection Committee consisting of 1. Former India coach Ajay Kumar Bansal, 2. Principal of receiving school or his representative 3.
