We made the sacrifice to be able to leave our sport a better place than we found it. Help fund our dream.

We are APTE (Athletes for a Positive Training Environment)! The 11 US Short Track Speedskaters still left standing and fighting for what we believe in... A positive environment to be able to do what we love. The goal is simple "Leave our sport a better place than we found it", but the sacrifices are vast. Because of we took a stand against abusive coaches and a governing body that chose to ignore it, we have lost:

Free Ice and premium ice times
Free Coaching
Free sports medicine and sport science
Free supplements
Our locker room
Some athletes even lost monthly paychecks from USS
and we've had to hire a lawyer

Needless to say we gave up a lot, not to mention the emotional toll of things we've had to deal with. We've created this page for you to come show your support for our cause. Make a post, send us a message, a video, share our posts, let the whole world know, and even help us out financially at GoFundMe.com/4APTE. We are not a non profit, but any donations or product in kind would be more than appreciated. For further info and statements you can contact our lawyer Ed Williams at : egwilliams@somlaw.com. Again... thanks so much for any and all support. Needless to say... it puts smiles on our faces. ~~ APTE 


** Please understand we are not a non profit nor a business. We are simply trying to raise money and awareness for our cause. All 'rewards' will be sent out at our earliest convenience and personal experiences with the team will not provide travel expenses. All money raised will go to the expenses of the group and no single skater. The $36k expense includes ice time for the 11 skaters and some lawyer expenses. This does not include all the other perks listed above and any extra raised will be used to aid in these other team expenses.
