As a teacher/coach in a high poverty/low income/transient school, my students have many challenges before them. Many come from other countries and have diverse and challenging backgrounds. Our classroom teachers are amazing, and do so much with so little to give these kids what they need to do in order to succeed in life and on their educational path.
Sports is a necessary unifying force in this area.
Many kids NEED sports teams as a way to be free. They need sports as a way to join in the school and be a part of something larger than themselves.
We are trying to field 3 boys’ soccer teams at the school I work in; a Varsity, a Junior Varsity, and a B team that will service both our 9th graders and our feeder middle schools. But, we have a problem with space.
With these soccer goals, we can practice all 3 teams on the small area that we have.
These goals will allow us to give each team an area on the field that they can call theirs, and they will not have to share space or the one goal that we have now. We can also add more kids to the team, which will make more kids a part of Stall Soccer!!!
