The Apollo Beach Thunder is a non-profit youth sports organization based in Apollo Beach, Florida. We offer boys basketball travel teams from the 3rd grade through 12th grade. Our program strives to reach beyond, just athletics. We see basketball as a vehicle to teach life lessons, provide mentorship, and make a positive influence in the lives of our community’s youth. We aim to create leaders, and many of the characteristics that will make a successful basketball player, translate into life. Hard work, discipline, teamwork, accountability, and a burning will to succeed are only a few of the values we aim to instill in our players.
Through our fundraising efforts and donations from key partners in the community such as yourself, we have been able to offer scholarships to more than thirty student-athletes in high-risk communities, allowing them to participate in our program. We would like to continue this effort and increase our footprint, allowing more students to participate, and reducing the out of pocket expenses for families. Your donation will help to support this effort.
