Mr. Brisco from Sacramento CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating Community Through Basketball

My students need funds for basketball equipment, gear, and tournament fees. These things include balls, bags, training equipment, shoes. Unfortunately, our school does not have a booster club and our sports programs have limited funds.

My Students

My students are highly motivated and hard-working student-athletes in high school. Athletics is a great tool to foster growth in school communities and they focus is to inspiring participation.

They are aiming to change the culture of our high school through academics and sports.

The students are consistently striving for opportunities to compete and learn as much as they can. I would love to get help to be apart of a shift in changing the culture for our school.

My Project

Our students are aiming to create a motivational and hardworking atmosphere for the student-athletes at our high school. We plan to improve our basketball program with resources to help our student-athletes strive to be the best they can be. Specifically, we plan to use the SKLZ ShotLoc Basketball Training, Wilson Evolution Official Basketballs, and the SKLZ D-Man Defensive Mannequin to use diligently in the offseason to improve our players individually and as a team.

Sports have a way of inspiring not only students but the communities they serve so we would love to motivate students and families to be apart of our school environment.
