My Project

Have you ever tried to hit a soccer ball with your head? How about if it's cold outside? Yeah. It's an unpleasant experience. Plus, that one wrong hit can make it so you don't want to ever try a header again.

Instead, our Girls Soccer Team will be using these soccer balls to practice headers.

This will allow for proper form and technique, while limiting injuries due to improperly heading a ball.

Our Girls Soccer Team is playing in rain, sleet, snow and hail, so providing anything to support their continued growth on the field is much appreciated.
