The webinar focused on how to remain stress free, physical fitness and positive mindset for women's U-23, U-19 players and was taken by Dr Reena Kaul, senior scientific officer (sport psychology), Sports Authority of India.

"For physical fitness we have told them to add yoga and pranayam with their regular exercise schedule and for mental health my advices were- relaxation exercise, meditation, positive self affirmation, staying away from negativity. Another important thing is to be in touch with the players and coach as now you can't go out and play," Dr Kaul said.

"This was a very useful session, was interactive too. Girls asked questions about how to keep a positive mind at different situations during game and never lose the focus," women's U-19 coach Priyanka Roy said about the session.
