Many of the 17 girl's basketball players at my school have never seen a professional women's basketball game. They know that they are interested in basketball and are happy to have the opportunity to play in middle school, but they don't know where they can go in basketball from there. I want to show them the success that women athletes have had in basketball by taking them to a NYC Liberty Women's basketball game. By taking them to a game, I am hoping to build their confidence in themselves as women. I want them to see that not only boys can play sports in a successful way. So can women! I plan to talk with them about how women can achieve greatness in many realms outside of sports as well. My young female basketball players are very strong and motivated women, but they need role models of success. Please help me give my students the opportunity to witness female athletic achievement and connect to women's general strength and empowerment. Thank you! Thanks in advance for your help!
