The construction process continues to proceed at our Apex Facility, and with 4 courts available and 2 to 3 more available by this weekend, we have started running our training and jump/conditioning programs at our own facility!!! The energy has been high, which proves that no matter what gets thrown our way Southern Sand and its members will persevere. Thanks for your support and we look forward to a great season!!!
