Support Local During Black History Month – Playmakers Elite

By Republic FC Communications, 02/22/21, 3:30PM PST


The local sports academy’s primary focus is to empower and transform the lives of young people by bridging the gap between real life expectations and what is provided through K-12 education

During the month of August of 2020, Republic FC and Suncrest Bank teamed up to help small businesses suffering from the effects of the pandemic. The program, Republic FC Kickstart, focused on giving $10,000 in grants to Black-owned businesses that had been heavily impacted by coronavirus.

Playmakers Elite Sports Academy is a local organization that passionately believes in creating a hub that provides social, educational and recreational programs designed to minimize or eliminate excuses by removing societal barriers. Thus, paving the way to the road to success. 

The group is a community centered organization where students can learn from others, grow and thrive in a supportive environment while receiving positive and constructive feedback. 

Playmakers Elite provides a 6,800 sq. foot “life skills training hub” – designed to train all aspects of life including mental, physical and social, and help guide individuals to become a positive, productive, and creative member in society. Motivational speakers have given lectures while educational classes are available to assist youth in job search and interview skills, money management, SAT/ACT prep, grants/financial aid education, and clearinghouse education. 

There’s also a healthy living component that includes a mental skills development program and coaches, massage therapists, meal prep, planning, and healthy eating and self-care. 

The organization serves all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religious group, or sexual orientation. Several hundred student-athletes have been mentored over the years and over $30 million in scholarships have been awarded to those student-athletes focused on a commitment to their future.
