It’s the guardian angel that, when listened too, can help…

Beach Days, Los Angeles and The Takeover

This trip was exactly what I needed to start off the spring and summer of 2014, and I ended up coming back to Canada being super refreshed in terms of…

APK is holding tryouts for the 2022 WCT Season! If you're interested in trying out, you'll need to do the following.

Create a Tryout Video (Details for that are on our YouTube LINK IN BIO)

Upload that Video to Google Drive and Share that video/folder with apksubmission@gmail.com

The deadline for submissions is the Ides of March (if you don't know when that is, better find out)

QUICK CLARIFICATION FOR OUR APK FANS
This does NOT mean we are scrapping all our previous athletes, in fact you'll most likely see most of them again (because we have some BEASTS on our team) but we do want the best athletes for our teams (as the brothers say, they want to see the best people chase). So holding tryouts opens the doors for new athletes to enter the sport 

Now Good Luck! And remember, Don't Get Caught
