Our school is a suburban middle school in Austin, Tx. We have several underprivileged students in our school and an even greater population in the district. Due to the fact that we are in a large district with so many needy students, it is difficult for the athletic departments to fund all of our needs much less purchase some of the better equipment for our athletes. These students work hard to compete for our school and often are competing against other schools with larger reserves that can purchase equipment as needed.
Please help our athletes reach their maximum potential.
Our athletes put in hard work every day to be the best they can be. The district can only afford the less expensive basketballs that lose their bounce and tend to go flat quickly. We do not have enough basketballs for one per student for practice. These balls will be used during practice and athletics to develop fundamental basketball skills. In middle school ball handling skills are the weakest area and we need more basketballs to make sure each athlete has one during drills.
Help us fuel the passion for the game.
In order to push our athletes to the next level, we need equipment to match.
