Together, we can build a world-class health and community center in North Minneapolis.

With community support, we can build the V3 Center and develop programming within it to address systemic racism and bring economic vitality and social transformation to our neighborhood and state.

The V3 Center

In September 2017, V3 Sports purchased its future site at 701 Plymouth Avenue North in Minneapolis. The V3 Center will be a place of pride for the Northside. It has been designed to be a beacon of hope as well as a focal point bridging the Northside to Downtown. Most importantly, the building will serve as a hub for the community to gather and grow together.
OUR Mission

Providing health, wellness, equity, and opportunity through fitness, water safety, education, and economic impact.


Where children come to learn, teens find inspiration, and adults access opportunity and equity through health, wellness, and community.


Your Support Matters. North Minneapolis is one of the few communities in the Twin Cities metro without an indoor aquatic and athletic center. 


Our Story

In 2007, Erika L. Binger’s drive and desire to help youth learn to swim developed into the creation of a team of 23 triathletes, taking on a sport in which the founder has excelled internationally. Triathlon became a powerful mechanism that led to youth and teens developing incredible life-skills such as teamwork, determination, goal-setting and commitment.

Only When North Minneapolis Families Thrive will the Twin Cities Heal
