As parents we often are in a dilemma about choosing sport as a career option. Indeed, many of us, as kids have had the exposure as well as inclination to take it up but we didn’t or couldn’t give it a chance because it was not the safest option and did not fit with the definition of being successful or was not a proven formula to success.
So, today we have with us Kedar Tembe, a Sports educationist, a sports consultant and a coach. Kedar has been teaching tennis for the last 18 years. He also has a good deal of corporate experience in the field of sports for 10 yrs. What is more, he is a certified ‘Strength and Conditioning specialist’ and plant based nutritionist. He is, in addition, the head coach for Singapore Tennis Association for 2 programs.
We will discuss the stigma attached to sports as a career and suggest way in which children pursue a career in sport.

Support change: A little favour to ask-We believe true freedom is to be able to act without fear or favour and that identity is not a “brand” to be abused, politicized, or reduced for personal gain. As Global Indians, the need to work together is greater now than ever before. If we want to see real change, we need to create a better society for all, tackle injustice and plunge into the many aspects of what the human experience truly offers.The Global Indian Series has been built to be a platform of integrity, fairness and to remain fiercely independent of political influence. We are the first in the world to connect with every echelon of society with all human voices being treated equally. We are the first to have travelled physically to locations far and wide, often putting our own lives on the line to bring forward stories that deserve to be told. Whether it’s through our Podcast that delves into the human experience behind identity, our articles and features that cover key events we need to know, or live based events that tackle topical discussions, we have been there to support a better community and planet.Despite the high costs and time needed to maintain our work, we continue, because we know our work has helped more people understand what is happening within the communities across our planet, why it matters, and how, together, we can demand progress.
