My Students

We have a record number of women coming out for our softball team this year! As our high school has grown, so has our athletics program.

The softball team is attracting a wide range of students from those who are trying the sport for the first time to some who have played for several years.

This is an exciting time as the program expands! However, we do not want access to proper equipment to be a barrier to the program or any individual player.

We are one of Indianapolis’ best public high schools. It provides a world-class education to approximately 860 students in grades 9-12 in the heart of Indianapolis. We offer an award-winning classical, liberal arts curriculum that prepares students for success in college and in life.

My Project

Imagine trying to play softball without balls, gloves, nets or helmets! Equipment to build skills and ensure safety is essential to learning to love the game of softball.

Your support will ensure that all players have access to essential equipment.

Our team is requesting the basics. Right and left handed gloves for our fielders and position specific gloves for our catchers and first basemen, bats and softballs will enable all players to have proper equipment.

Please support the young women and the coaches by ensuring they have the equipment to compete on the field, develop teamwork and create a sense of school pride!
