Dressed to Play!

Help me give my students jerseys to honor the commitment they have made to each other and the team.

My Students

The girls we coach are beginning volleyball players. They are eager to learn and excited to be part of a team. Their skill level varies from some experience with a volleyball to none. The diversity in experience and athletic ability holds for their personal and socioeconomic backgrounds as well. Our players vary in grade level from 6th to 8th.

The girls support each other, learn playing skills and sportsmanship on an all-skill-leveled teams.

I specifically work with "C" team players who are just learning fundamentals and for many, have not played organized sports prior to this season.

My Project

The volleyball team at MLMS has grown in the last two years, not only in numbers, but in spirit and sportsmanship. The coaching staff works with girls of all skill levels and abilities, teaching volleyball skills, rules of the game and how to be a good teammate. Friendships are made and the girls thoroughly enjoy playing. Our team consists of 52 Varsity and Junior Varsity players and close to 80 beginning "C" team players.

New to the sport of volleyball, our "C" team players are excited and nervous on game day.

Currently, with so many players, we do not have enough volleyball uniform jerseys to outfit everyone. Several sub-teams use our basketball tops, as they have numbers and fit the requirements established by the district. It is our hope to outfit all "C" players in new, uniform jerseys to honor the time and commitment they have made to each other and our program. Players will be issued a numbered jersey for the season and return upon completion of our last jamboree.
