Big Expectations in a Tiny Space

Help me give my students the opportunity to get some indoor training by using the sleds, plyometric boxes, weight vests and resistance bands in a confined area.

My Students

The school that I have the privilege of working with is a school that I am very familiar with. It is in an up and coming neighborhood that isn't quite there yet. We are moving upward and outward. We serve a population that 71% economically disadvantaged.

The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.

When given the opportunity to expand and grow their minds, bodies and spirits....they do. Please give us the opportunity. This is a chance to feel special.

My Project

The high school that we attend is converted office space. Because of this we lack the ability to use large spaces. Trying to manage full track team workout around all of this requires careful planning and flexible equipment. The weighted vests will work well with our staircase runs. The sleds are made for indoor use and we will use them in the hallways. The resistance bands and the plyometric boxes will work well in the small weight room that we use and any empty classroom.

The school does not have a gymnasium, an auditorium, or yard space so we must adapt to what we have.

Everything we requested will help us build explosive speed and power in the limited space we have. Hopefully with these additions and the student athletes maintaining good academic grades college scholarships become more of a possibility.
