Badminton Birdie Mania

My students need new Badminton birdies for PE class. All students throughout the year play badminton during PE and all our current birdies are old and worn down.

My Students

Our students are amazing and love to learn as well as get healthy and work out hard in PE class. Academics can be stressful in middle school and having a safe, fun outlet in PE is priceless for some students.

The teachers try to make PE as fun as possible with structure and learning to go along with it.

Kids seem to have fun every day and having new material helps a ton. All students hate old material and equipment so we try to provide the best stuff at all times.

My Project

These materials will be a huge bump up from the birdies we have now. Every student on campus plays badminton for 3-4 weeks during PE and the birdies get so much use that we always have to buy new ones.

With these new birdies every student will be thrilled when they get to play badminton and are playing/rallying with new equipment.

Most students on campus love badminton and expect great quality equipment and we try to provide that daily.

Thanks for anything you can do to help make this a reality. Our kids and PE teachers would love you endlessly.
