We are on a mission to help parents of future sports stars with the knowledge required in raising a champion.
How it Started – About the Founder
Sreekar Mothukuri was an Engineer by profession and worked in the corporate world for 14 years as an SAP consultant, of which he spent the last 10 years in United States. Growing up he always wanted to be a cricket player; but coming from a small place and due to lack of proper knowledge and guidance, he could not pursue his passion. He believes every person who has an athletic dream can reach their full potential with proper guidance, knowledge, exposure, and support at the right time.
He started Dream About Sports (www.dreamaboutsports.com) in 2013 to help parents to gain knowledge and experience that is required to raise a champion. He has interviewed many top players, champion parents, coaches, nutritionists and sports psychologists; all of who play an important role in a child’s sports career. He is very happy supporting many parents and players in India and would like to reach out to different parts of the world.
What challenges are we going to solve
Many parents do not have sports background but their kids are passionate about sports and want to make a career in it. These parents want to help their kids in reaching their dreams, but due to lack of proper knowledge and exposure, they are making some wrong choices. They are having hard time understanding what they are doing is right or wrong.
Some examples are : what is the right age to get their kid started in sports? How many hours does the kids need to practice on a daily basis? How to find a right coach? How to deal after a tough loss, how to deal with financials, how to deal with injuries and so on.
Let’s take an example of education system, if you need guidance in selecting a good school for your child or need guidance to help your child score good marks in TOEFL or GRE entrance exams, even a next door neighbor can guide you in the right direction or the many consultancies which exists for that very purpose . But in sports, there is no platform to help aspiring players and parents who want to raise champions in sports.
Parents who are raising their kids in sports also have lot of self doubts like, “Will my kid be able to make it big? what happens if he cannot make it big? Is it really worth the time and money? And the parents might also face a lot of criticism from family and friends when they take this path, which can also demotivate them.
At Dream About Sports, we provide interviews of Champion’s Parents and Coaches, Schools, Nutritionists, Sports Psychologists and Fitness trainers who play a very big role in raising a champion. These interviews will help the parent’s of future sports stars in raising a champion.
