My Students

My girls make me look forward to the end of my teaching school day. Coaching lacrosse to these girls isn’t a job for me it’s a privilege. These girls come from a low income very diverse background and lacrosse is one of the ways they can escape from their home life. They all have respect for myself and the other coaches. The girls also value the extra time and I put forth in order for them to be successful. Some chose to play this sport in college so this is an opportunity for them to get additional support and guidance and they definitely take advantage.

My Project

These donations will provide an opportunity for my girls who are underprivileged in a low economic area a chance to be able to try a new sport without a worry because of financial needs. Since the sport is new to the Carolina area a lot of parents are hesitant about purchasing new items for the sport but having this opportunity to provide them with the equipment needed for success will provide them with no obstacles and hesitation.

The only thing on their minds will be how to play and when they’re going to play.

That is how kids should feel always while playing sports.
