The Indonesian Rock Climbing Federation (FPTI) wishes to start holding a national training camp (pelatnas) at the Jakarta International Climbing Wall Park in Cakung, in mid-June 2020. However, it is still waiting for recommendations and permits from the local government.
Until now, the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta has indeed not yet granted permission to FPTI to be able to use the Jakarta International Climbing Wall Park. Head of the Jakarta Youth and Sports Agency, Achmad Firdaus, has not yet issued a permit recommendation, because his party still has to hold a coordination meeting first.
“It will still be discussed internally in the Dispora, this is in accordance with Pergub 51,” Achmad said as quoted by Tempo.co.
In the Governor Regulation No. 51 of 2020 concerning the Implementation of Large-Scale Social Restrictions during the Transition Period towards a Healthy, Safe and Productive Community, all sports activities can be held and determined in advance by the Decree of the Head of the Youth and Sports Agency. The rule, stated in article 16, is a co-19 prevention protocol.
Achmad himself has not been able to determine whether FPTI’s proposal to start the national training plate on June 16 will immediately get approval.
“Tomorrow is a meeting,” he said, explaining the mechanism for granting permits for sports activities in Jakarta during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Previously, FPTI really wanted to be able to take the start of national training on June 15, 2020. FPTI Deputy Chairperson, Ferry Ardianto said that the training camp which was usually held in Yogyakarta, would be moved to Jakarta.
“Plans in Cakung, the biggest and best wall in Indonesia,” said the man familiarly called Pey.
To be able to take advantage of the Jakarta International Climbing Wall Park in East Cakung, FPTI has sent a letter of submission to the DKI Jakarta Dispora. Because, according to Pey, the facility is under the auspices of the DKI Provincial Government, so it must obtain permission to use.
“Until now we have applied for a place permit, in principle everything is ok. Once the permit has been disbursed from the Dispora, if it can be accredited, we will enter the 15th,” he said.
Pey added, in this national training tournament, FPTI will bring 12 athletes. They consisted of, Aries Susanti Rahayu, Alfian M, Fajri, Aspar Jaelolo, and Nurul Iqamah who were prepared to be able to take part in the 2020 Olympic qualification series.
“There are also a number of junior athletes that we call,” concluded Pey.
