Shikhar Dhawan, the left-handed India opener, has established his own sports education and training company called Da One Sports. From the ground up, the organization will aim to provide training for young children.
The goal of Dhawan’s sports business is to provide athletes and coaches with learning opportunities so they can have better futures.
The academy has started a number of initiatives like the “Grassroots Innovation Programme” and the “Sports Training Programme,” which will concentrate on creating a foundational sporting culture before collaborating with schools and academies and making use of technology to monitor individual performances, advancement, and skill development.

“I feel, cricket has given me so much and I want to give in my efforts and play my part towards keeping it alive. I want to pass my knowledge and experience to the younger generation through this organization. I believe that if we put in the best of our efforts, hum sab apne dreams ko reality mein convert kar sakte hain (we can convert our dreams into reality),” News 18 reported Dhawan as saying.
The academy will train athletes in eight sports at both the amateur and professional levels. They are also training 500 coaches and creating four centers of excellence. The organization’s goal for its “Sports and Wellness Program” is to have an impact on 10 lakh athletes over the course of the following five years.
