When it comes to that better future for the company itself, Charles has found accessing funding to be a challenging process. “We’ve run the business debt-free since the beginning, when we built it from the ground up. When it came time to getting our own facility, we were met with so many barriers, especially when we had to submit our photo identification,” Charles says. “Getting funding will finally allow us some flexibility within our operations. We can build on ventures within our business without the restrictions we have had and without worry. We can provide resources to our community in terms of education, equipment and other resources to help the young athletes and their families that come through our door.
