Basketball in the City

My students need basketballs, a stopwatch and a battle rope for their practices.

My Students

My students attend a Title I School, and almost seventy percent receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a magnet school which requires most students to maintain a B average throughout the year. The students are part of Pre-Med, Engineering, Environmental Science, or Computer Technology programs.

Our students come from the diverse backgrounds of 30 different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

My students are inner-city students and since we are in the heart of the city we don't have much room for sports on our campus. I think it's super important for kids to play sports. Team sports teach our scholars how to work together and learn good sportsmanship. We would love to have more basketballs to use for basketball games. The basketballs we have are really old and worn out. The timer we could use for our practices and games. When practicing we do a ton of timed drills over and over. This would be way better than the stopwatch we currently are using. The battle rope will be used for strength building. Our players need to increase their stamina and this will help.
