I firmly believe that sports should not only be for Olympic Medals, fame or for fortune. It should more importantly be for teaching us: how to win & lose, to live a healthy life, companionship, teamwork and healthy competition. Sports should also teach us to dream big, challenge ourselves, respect our opponents and to never give up. SportsMentor understand that these values are the most important goals of Sports Education and no kid should miss out on it. -?Virender Sehwag
