Mrs. Bowers from Madisonville TN is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Dribble, Dribble, Shoot, Shoot!!

My students need 4 new basketballs to replace those on our rack that continuously lose air and 18 dribbling goggles.

My Students

My student athletes work hard on and off the court. They are motivated young ladies who strive for greatness in every way. They are asked to do a lot as well as keep their academics in good standing. They have an expectation to have integrity, good character, and class. In a school of over 1000 students, these young ladies set the bar on how a team should act and look. They have to fundraise for almost all of their equipment, gear, and apparel.

My Project

This project will reach student athletes as well as students in my PE class. The basketballs will replace those balls on our rack that continously have to have air pumped into them. This dribbling goggles will better their basic dribbling skills. My athletes live in a high poverty, rural area; over two thirds of our school is on free or reduced lunch vouchers. Most of our equipment is paid for thru fundraising, in a school of over 1000 students, our sponsors are already giving as much support as they can, but funding is still tight. My girls would be grateful to have some new balls and dribbling goggles to help them become more efficient basketball players.
