Dear Family, Friends and other supporters

 

Hi my name is Corbin Felix and I am 18 years old currently completing my final year at Liston College. Basketball is a big part of my life, and one of my biggest aspirations. I live and breathe basketball and my love for the game continues to grow everyday. My endless hours training on the court has improved my skills thus motivating me to strive for better. I have dedicated early hours before school to improve my skills whether it’s dribbling, shooting or strength training. I am very passionate about Basketball and I could not see myself doing anything else.

 

My dream is to play NCAA College Basketball as well as playing Professional Basketball. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it would be greatly appreciated if you could help me raise funds in order for me to attend Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas Nevada. This will put me in the direction of achieving my dream. Immigrating to New Zealand from Cape Town, South Africa, this dream would seem almost impossible. I would never have imagined being given an opportunity like this. I am chasing my dream not only for myself, but for my family and friends and for all those back home in South Africa with dreams as big as mine and who don’t have the opportunities that I have been blessed with.

 

As I am currently residing in New Zealand, it is nearly impossible to receive NCAA scholarships, as scouts from the USA need to travel thousands of miles away in order to see you play. The Impact Basketball Academy is the world's premiere destination for NBA players, International Professionals and High School players world wide. Impact is home to players at every level who want to improve, develop and transform themselves into better athletes, more highly skilled players and more versatile competition as they prepare for the highest levels of the game. Impact has a great college placement system and has placed 80% of their players into division 1, 2 and 3 schools. Impact will be perfect for me, as I will be surrounded with people who like me, lives for the game of basketball. Together we will work hard and strive to reach our goal.

 

By January 2015, I will need approximately $25,000 to be able to go to the Impact Academy. For the duration of the program, I am required to pay $4,000 a month. The program is a 4-6 month long post-graduate program for athletes who want an extra year to become more physically, mentally or academically prepared for college. I hope to be able to raise at least $10,000 with your help. Unfortunately, I cannot come up with this amount of money in the short period, so I am kindly asking if you would be generous enough to help me on my journey of making my dream a reality. Going to Impact is really extremely important for me, as I don't want to look back and regret not grabbing this opportunity by the hands. I have never wanted anything more than following through with this, as it is a wonderful blessing. If you could please be so kind to donate, as every dollar counts and will be deeply appreciated. If you are not able to donate, would you please be so kind to share this page.

 

Thank you

 

Love Corbin
