Dr. Boll wins kayak race
Dr. Boll won the 18-49 year old category for the Lake Geneva Black Point Burner race on Sept 11, 2016. He finished second overall in the kayak race, just 30 seconds behind the winner. The thirteen mile race was completed by Dr. Boll in his Delta 17 sea kayak in 2 hours, 15 minutes and six seconds. Had he had another 100 yards, he would have won as he was closing on the winning boat signifcantly in the last mile. "It's great to finish the season with a class win and double podium" said Dr. Boll, standing on the 2nd place step for the overall results and then the top step for the 18-49 year old class.
Apex Alumn wins USHL Champ Cup
Collin Peters has won the Championship with the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL. Collin is back row, holding the "#1" sign the highest. Apex is proud of his accomplishment and we want to see the ring!
Apex Athletic Performance alumni Collin Peters was drafted by the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL. He is shown at the far left in the picture after the final horn in a win over Bloomington. Collin is a Senior in High School and played up until this year with the Sheboygan Red Raiders. We wish Collin and the rest of the Stampede the best of luck in the Clark Cup Playoffs! Collin is scheduled to return to Apex over the summer, as he is on the radar of numerous NHL teams being a 4th round draft consideration pick at this time. He is scheduled to start his collegiate career this fall with Northern Michigan University where he plans to study law enforcement.
Apex Athletic Performance continues our close relationship with Elkhart Lake, as we were invited to put on a two week pre-season camp for the Girls Soccer Team, but Fast Pitch and Track are also invited to participate. The camp will run Monday through Fridays from March 9th through the 20th from 3pm to 4:30 pm. Apex put on a summer training camp and then a pre-season Football camp.
The Elkhart Lake Resorter Football team went undefeated last year in 8 man play, making it to the first ever 8 Man State Jamboree where they lost to the State Champs. It was the best season that Elkhart Lake Football ever had. Apex is proud to be part of their pre-season prep.
Dr. Dave gets to reunite with Ahman Green.
Back in 2003, Dr. Dave was able to work with some Packers, one of which was Ahman. Now, Ahman is playing rugby for the Green Bay Strikers and has hopes of making the USA Eagles 7 man program in time for the upcoming Olympics, when rugby makes a return. Dr. Boll and Ahman came back together at a rugby tournament in Fond du Lac, where Dr. Dave's Sheboygan Sharks took 8th place, a few spots behind Ahman's Strikers.

Apex Athletic Performance is in our new Training Facility!
Apex Athletic Performance is working out of the former Batavia Elementary School Building, W7140 School Drive, in Batavia.
The former school allows us ample room to continue with our athletic performance training and camps. The gym allows us to continue with speed, agility, acceleration and conditioning sessions/camps. We have dedicated rooms for Olympic style athletic weight training and for functional training (Ropes, TRX, Plyo work, Kettlebells, etc). The long hallways allows us to coach sprint training and do sled drags.
Plus, we have 8 acres of land to have all sessions and camps outdoors too when the weather cooperates.
We are very excited to have access to this great building that really suits our needs and allows us to expand our services.
Apex Athletic Performance is proud to be associated with the Sheboygan Silverbacks Rugby Club! We'll assist them with their training and conditioning needs, along with working with Sheboygan County Youth Rugby to set up an Academy Program.
