Fitness for Life: A Racquetball Approach

My students need racquetballs and protective eyewear to engage in a game of racquetball in our after-school program.

My Students

This group is positively one of the most resilient groups of kids I've worked with in all my years of being an educator. Living in rural parts on our island in Hawaii, my kids are able to live without the luxuries of working facilities, functioning equipment, and a sufficient amount of technology. At our Title I school, my kids are faced with financial challenges at a young age. They "make do" with what they are given and rarely do they complain about the condition of the facilities and/or equipment. My class has the potential to motivate and inspire students through exercise and physical fitness and is one of the few classes that promote movement throughout the entire period!

My Project

After school programs should go above and beyond what students normally do throughout the school day. We have racquets for racquetball but lack the other vital pieces of equipment such as the racquetballs and protective eyewear. I would like to introduce this lifetime fitness activity to my students but am unable to due to the lack of equipment. Racquetball is usually played at fitness centers or community parks all which are unavailable to my students. Living in the most rural part of the island, we are not afforded the luxuries of these types of facilities. I want my students to gain the skills and experience from this dynamic lifetime fitness activity.

Please help me complete the list of much-needed sports equipment so my students can engage in a game of racquetball!

I know that they will enjoy learning this new exercise and add to their list one more lifetime fitness activity they can do.
