My Students

Our student athletes are amazing. They come from all sorts of backgrounds, each with their own unique story. Their work ethic is beyond anything I, as their coach, could ever ask, and their team spirit is incredible. Sports is so much more than just winning and losing. It’s also about showing the student athletes the meaning of teamwork and comradery, hard work, and pride. Our kids are learning life lessons every time they step on the floor together and it’s our job as coaches to assist them along the way.

My Project

The Lady Dragons volleyball team tracks their stats on multiple sheets of paper with multiple lines for each category. This requires, not only a lot of lugging, but lots of paper, pencils and photocopying. With one iPad, we can streamline our stats recording for over 15 of our athletes.

With this iPad, the student athletes can see trends in their play, where they need extra work, and where they excel.

We, as coaches, can see where the group, on the whole, needs a little extra push. All in all, this iPad will be a great addition to our entire program.
