Being able to play organized soccer means a great deal to my student-athletes. The fact that we have professional soccer equipment builds self-esteem and pride in their team.
Our high school soccer teams works hard to perfect their playing skills.
Having professional style soccer balls will help them feel like pros.
Our high school soccer players are a diverse group from many different countries, and many have difficulties coming to practice due to a variety of economic reasons.
Many have not had a chance to play organized soccer nor the opportunity to have been exposed to professional coaches. The need for good quality equipment builds team pride especially when we compete against better funded teams.
This much needed equipment will help us to conduct soccer practices where the student-athletes will feel empowered by the support shown by your organization. The resultant increase to their self-esteem will result in increased attendance at practice and at school. Organized after school activities make a difference in these students' lives.
Many do not have a secure and supervised place to go after school.
Hopefully we can make a difference in their lives. The ability to play soccer makes the difference in whether some of these students come to school or not.
