We are fundraising to improve our training center and home, The Lair Courts. Kraken is a non-profit sports education organization providing volleyball and basketball training instruction to youth and adult athletes in the Greater Puget Sound area. We provide opportunities for the youth in our community to participate in sports regardless of their socio-economic background. We’ve had the honor of training and providing competition opportunities for over 700 youth and 500 adult athletes in our short 6-year history, we look forward to many more years of serving our sports communities.
We need to raise $300,000 to fund facility improvement projects. New gym flooring is the largest expense and will have the greatest impact on the training and competition opportunities and programs we offer. LED lighting upgrades will improve energy efficiency and brightness. We opened the Lair in March 2018 with temporary sport court flooring and no seating, humble beginnings. The improvements will help us expand programming and opportunities for the youth and adults of our community.
