Troy Wells, Executive Director

Lakeland Xpress is an organization committed to developing youth in athletics and citizenship.  Founded in 2013, Lakeland Xpress is the vision of executive director, Troy Wells.  With unrelenting conviction, Mr. Wells and a handful of equally dedicated and resourceful staff, work with the intent to create a positive Christian environment in which young men can participate in organized athletics.  United as an organization, volunteers, parents, and sponsors all share in the belief that every child is worth the investment of a good influence.

In our inaugural 2013 season, the teams of Lakeland Xpress were made up of young boys ranging in ages from eleven to sixteen, representing grade levels 7th, 8th and 9th.  The boys had the opportunity to participate in tournaments hosted by Florida YBOA and USSSA athletic associations that season.  Last year, our organization expanded to grade levels 6th through 12th and participated in numerous Florida YBOA and AAU tournaments.  This year, we are broadening our organization to include boys and girls in grade levels 3rd through 12th.  For this endeavor, the entire organization has been working to raise funds that will allow us to train and participate in tournaments.  It is our goal as an organization to not just participate, but be competitive at the state level.  Since our program is comparatively new, we rely heavily on corporate sponsorships and individual donations.  We would be grateful if you would partner with us and contribute financially to our endeavor.  I assure you that this arrangement would be mutually beneficial for both parties involved.  If you would like to contribute to the mission of the vision, please contact us for donation options and information.
