My name is Ian Anderson. I am a passionate athlete and Physical Education teacher. I competed at a state and national level in both swimming and basketball in Australia during my youth. I now wish to help other athletes achieve their goals.
I hope to launch an organisation called Sports Mentors in 2013. Sports Mentors is my own initiative and will exist to provide support and advice to young and aspiring athletes who seek to compete at a state, national or international level.
Sports Mentors will provide guidance, support and advice in the following areas to assist athletes with their development and help them achieve their goals and aspirations
- Sports Psychology
- Sports Nutrition
- Skill Development
- Strength & Conditioning
- Injury Prevention, Maintenance and Recovery
- Career Pathway
Ordinarilly the above services can be quite expensive and usually only made available to elite athletes. Sports Mentors will offer these services to anyone who seeks self-improvement or wishes to follow a goal or dream.
Our services will be predominately available via the internet to enable us to keep costs low and allow more athletes, from around the world, to utilise the services.
I have already sourced professional partners to assist in the delivery of the above specialised services services. Sports Mentors has a vision and goal to become a well known name in athlete development throughout the world.
By donating to Sports Mentors you will have an active role in making dreams come true, the birth of Sports Mentors (my dream), and the achievements of many athletes from around the world.
Please donate only what you can afford to and you will ignite the dreams of many.
What We Need & What You Get
Sports Mentors is seeking approximately $10,000 to help get the organisation started:
- Development of a professional website - $5000
- Office setup - $2000
- Intial marketing and advertisements - $3000
Obviously the $10,000 is a starting point and we would welcome further donations to assist Sports Mentors. It is our hope that the $10,000 will be enough to help Sports Mentors gain recognition within the industry which could then lead to gaining corporate and industry sponsorship. If you are in a position to offer corporate sponsorship please contact me (Ian) at [email protected]
Your contribution to Sports Mentors has the potential to impact and positively influence the lives of millions of young athletes throughout the world.
Sports Mentors will be there to support all athletes who seek assistance, this may include yourself, siblings, sons, daughters, grandchildren, etc.
You will forever be appreciated in the eyes of many.
