Archived: STASIA KRYK – SUPPORT A FUTURE CHAMPION: I am enrolled in several elite junior tennis programs in both Canada and the United States

iCrowdNewswire - May 18, 2016



My name is Stasia and I am an 8 year-old girl who is proud to be from Windsor, Ontario. I am in grade 3 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School. I work and study hard in school because it’s important to me to do well and get high grades. I have lots of hobbies and interests! I like singing and playing the piano, drawing pictures, reading and writing stories. I enjoy spending time with my family, like my brother who is my best friend and one of my #1 supporters.

I’m told I’m really athletic and, I have to say, I really enjoy playing all sorts of sports, especially swimming and golf. Nothing tops my real love -TENNIS! I am enrolled in several elite junior tennis programs in both Canada and the United States. I train hard on the court and dream of competing at Wimbledon 2026 and competing at the 2028 Olympics. I currently compete across Ontario in the Ontario Tennis Association’s (OTA) U-10 Future Stars tournament circuit, as well as, the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) U-10 and U-12 tournaments and events in Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina and Florida.

Working with the best coaches, training and travelling all have a huge cost. I’ve done extremely well at these tournaments so far, but I need your help if I want to continue to be a future champion. Team sports such as hockey, soccer and baseball have access to fundraisers which help offset costs. In tennis I am on my own.

The funds I raise with my Pursu.it will be used directly for the following:

– Private lessons with OTA head coach, Nancy Loeffler-Caro
– USTA coaches and hitting groups at Lifetime Fitness and Grosse Pointe Hunt Club
– Training camps at Van Der Meer Tennis Academy in South Carolina
– Training camps at the Rick Macci Tennis Academy in Florida
– Costs associated with competing in the Little Mo International Tennis Tour
o New York
o Florida
o California
– Equipment costs
– Tournament fees
– Travel and accommodations associated with out of town tournaments.
– Travel for my coach to accompany me to international tournaments

I would be thrilled to have your support to pursue my dream, whether that is through a donation or by sharing my campaign with your friends. For your help, you won’t leave empty-handed. I would like to send you a token of my appreciation. Check out the givebacks to the right!

I love tennis, and I want to inspire other kids around me to chase their dreams of playing tennis. I know I have a long journey ahead of me. I believe in my family, friends, coaches, myself and my game. I thank God every day for giving me the strength to stay motivated, never give up and compete to be a champion. Thank you for your support!
