Our boys football and basketball players as well as our girls basketball players are determined and hard working. They put more into learning the game and developing as players more than most. They are all seventh and eighth graders. They are enthusiastic and energetic. We are in a rural area with no outdoor parks or places to play football or basketball except in the school setting.
They want to become better football and basketball players but do not always have the funds to pay for what they need to improve their skills.
School budgets are spread thin with physical education and athletics the last to receive funding.
I have amazing basketball players who do not receive the funding to get the necessary equipment to get through the season each year. They need things to help improve their skills that are not provided from the school.
The basketball program needs a few things to help them this season.
We need a stand up basketball goal so he players can worm up before games while the girls' game is being played. We need a basketball mannequin to use during shooting and dribbling skill development. We need a game ball to use only during games. The expo markers will be used to draw up plays for teaching and during games.
Your donation can make these things come true for my players.
