Apex Air 7-on-7 Football

Mission Statement

It is our goal to prepare our athletes to compete at the next level. We are dedicated to providing a professional environment where athletes will have the opportunity to develop advanced skills and further test their skills on a competitive platform. Character and work ethic are foundations of athletic development and will be the pillars we build upon. We will hold high expectations of all those involved to conduct themselves with respect, uplift those around them, challenge themselves and commit to the process.

"The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual."

Vince Lombardi

APEX Air 7 on 7 is a developmental football program for athletes ages 12 to 18. We will be fielding teams to compete in the 14, 16 and 18u divisions. Beginning in February, Apex Air will practice for 90 minutes, 3 days a week and continue through the end of May.

Focus will be put on skill development in a team driven, competitive environment. At Apex Air, every athlete will be given equal opportunity to improve their skills and take their game to the next level. High level coaching and a commitment to excellence will be the driving force to chasing your athletes dreams.

Along with our regular practice schedule, friendly competition and tournament play will be a regular part of the program. Some travel may be required as we are looking to build the most competitive 7 on 7 program in all of Iowa and beyond.

If you or your child are looking to improve their skills while learning how to compete and operate in high level team environments, we are here for you. For questions or details, please contact:
