My students are in a school that is 40% economically disadvantaged and live in the rural foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Our school encourages our students to strive for excellence.
In order for our athletes to reach excellence, they need training equipment.
We compete in baseball, softball, soccer, football, basketball, and track. Our students need agility and strength equipment such as ladders or parachutes to improve their conditioning. An added bonus will be healthy bodies produce healthy minds which will create excellence in the classroom as well.
Our school needs to update their strength and agility equipment to improve our chances on the field/court each week. Students need to be in great conditioned shape to help avoid injuries in practice and in the game.
The ladder is useful for all teams to practice their footwork, speed and agility.
The track team will use the ladder and the chute to increase speed. Our golf team will greatly benefit from the trainer to improve their stance and swing. The tackling and blocking dummies will save on the wear and tear of young bodies in practice, while the basketball team will improve their lateral moves and jumps with the resistor bands.
