My Students

I am the track coach at my school so I have the privilege of working with teenagers that are willing to volunteer to participate in a sport that requires hard work and dedication. These student/athletes work extremely hard and have great attitudes. I have worked with several of these athletes for four or more years and I am wanting to take their training to the next level in order to help them earn college scholarships. These student/athletes truly are great young men and women.

My Project

There are a couple of reasons for needing an iPad to help my student/athletes achieve their best. First, there is an app that allows me to video tape the athletes while running, and then show them immediately where they can improve using the tools in the app that show angles and potential. Second, it will allow me to video the athletes at meets and practices in order to show the student/athletes how they can perform better in events such as, jumps, throws, relays, and race strategies. Having the ability to show these athletes where they are excelling and where they need improvement, while still at practice will give them the best opportunity to excel and improve.
