Effective Training for Success on the Pitch

Help me give my students soccer goals, balls, gloves, and other equipment to take their training to the next level.

My Students

Our Career and Technical department have the most inventive, imaginative students in our district. Unfortunately, parental involvement with curriculum and in school extracurricular activities are limited. It takes a toll on students when they cannot show parents all of the hard work and effort they put into their work.

Our students are from underserved communities yet are full of creativity, innovation and deserve an opportunity to exhibit their brilliance.

PowerMyLearning is a program that will allow our students to do just that!

My Project

I have amazing students. Outside of the classroom, I have discovered that many have raw talent for soccer. We had a good season last year and seek to build on our success.

My student-athletes work extremely hard in the classroom and on the field as we emphasize a growth-mindset way of thinking in all that we do.

We are seeking to develop a year-long program to accomplish our mission to build on our success and become conference contenders. Our school is located in a low-income area in Hope Mills, N.C. Most families can only afford to purchase soccer gear such as cleats and shin guards. Our student-athletes never ask for anything and would be very thankful for anything they receive. We look forward to kicking off the season. These student-athletes earn and deserve the same opportunities as those in more fortunate situations able to play at high costs clubs. Your support will be greatly appreciated. The more donations and support we receive the more opportunities we can create for them.
