Cleats Help Us Compete

My students need cleats that can withstand turf and grass fields.

My Students

Students at WHS represent at least 16 countries around the globe. Each student has a different culture, background and/or journey which makes their story truly unique. The halls of our school are indeed diverse. Our girls' soccer team is a prime example of the diversity within our school.

The majority of our students have a goal to pursue a post-secondary plan; such as, community college, college/university, technical school, or entering the workforce with a certificate they earned in high school.

Over 95% of our students are a part of the free and reduced lunch program and/or receive fee waivers to take the ACT. Financial barriers are a common denominator for our students to push forward to achieve their goals.

My Project

My passion is coaching. Once I completed my time as a college athlete I easily transitioned into coaching soccer. I love the game of soccer and I have a desire to invest in high school students on and off the field. I believe sports help our students develop character, leadership skills, sportsmanship qualities, and how to be a part of a team. Being a part of a team can be a self-esteem booster. Each season I see players grow in confidence.

I have been an athlete my entire life and I was fortunate to have proper shoes, apparel, and equipment to compete.

My student-athletes will practice in whatever they have on that day at school. Sports specific gear is not a necessity to them. However, it is a necessity to participate in games. The lack of soccer cleats tends to be a common barrier for our girls. Conditioning, practicing, and playing in properly sized cleats will decrease soreness and further injury. I would like to provide the girls with soccer cleats so they will be prepared to compete to the best of their abilities and feel confident in themselves.
