Sports Movement is the only organization to offer a comprehensive cricket program at schools in the greater Austin area. Although played by billions of people in the world across Australia and New Zealand, UK, parts of Africa and Europe, the Caribbean islands and the Asian subcontinent, Cricket has hardly been played in Schools in North America. Sports Movement was founded to work on this challenge and to popularize Cricket in the grassroots level in American Schools.

Message from the Owner
"Sport has led me to achieve unbelievable things and continues to spur me on past the difficult moments in life. The sheer desire to again hold a Cricket bat and to kick a soccer ball on the turf took me past a degenerative knee condition that prevented me from playing any sport for 5 years.
Playing Sport helped me develop numerous life skills such as teamwork, leadership and competitiveness. It also made me more tolerant and got me friends from all walks of life. Sport has no doubt been my biggest motivator!
The biggest gift my parents gave me was introducing me to multiple sports at an age of 4, and this is exactly what I want to do as an Entrepreneur – to teach sport to children from a very young age at the most fundamental, grassroots level – in Schools! Sports Movement was started for this reason."
