Vamos! Support Youth Volleyball!

$340 of $415,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 5 months
In October  2013, Apex Performance Volleyball Club opened with one team of U15 players.  After 3 years of applying for coaching jobs at local clubs, with no success, I looked up at the stars one night and felt God leading me to start my own club in Apex.  We named our first team Apex Stars.  After three years, we had grown to 5 competitive teams.  During this time we have been moving like gypsies from churches, to schools, to community centers and sports facilities, paying a higher and higher rent every season.   We believe that now is the time to start construction on our own facility.

We now have the land in a prime location in Durham, and we have started meeting with the town council and the architect.

Since we started working with youth in 2013, we have never turned a way a player because of money.  I am a Cuban American who grew up in one of the poorest countries in the world.  I began training as a volleyball player on the cement without food in my stomach or knee pads to protect my knees.  Volleyball gave me purpose, discipline and hope.  I am passionate about making volleyball available to young athletes of every income level. 

I am also passionate about teaching young players who have had no previous individual or group lessons or competitive club experience.   We have taken eager, hardworking, young players and trained them to compete at a high level.  We are not just coaches, we are teachers and love to pass on our knowledge of fundamentals of each skill and strategy.  When parents thank us at the end of each season, they always express their amazement in the amount of improvement they have seen since their daughter started working with us. 

The Apex Stars  have won 6 gold medals and 12 silver medals and we know there are more to come!    Many teams have started as beginners with no experience or training and they end the season with a medal around their necks.  However, to continue making volleyball available to ALL, we will need the support of the whole community.    We cannot move forward without your support.  Whether you can give a little or a lot, we need your help. We are accepting donations for the construction of the building as well as the poles, nets and pads for each court.
