Ms. Diaz from Brooklyn NY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Fitness in Football

My students need footballs, kicking tees, flags for both away games and home games, and chutes.

My Students

I teach in a high-needs area in New York City. Many of my students struggle to just bring in a backpack and school supplies. I have mostly provided school supplies for them, but thankfully many of them come to school with an over-enthusiastic mindset to learn.

When it comes to sports, my students have a drive for team sports but lack the necessary funds.

Many of my student-athletes struggle to pay for cleats, jerseys, etc. Thankfully enough, former student-athletes will leave behind some cleats and uniforms for their underclassmen that can't afford to buy their own. But not having some materials have not stopped their motivation as currently football season has already begun and the students are as excited as ever.

My Project

With the new footballs, kicking tees, belts, and chutes, my student-athletes will be able to practice and make improvements in their game. The chutes will help them bring the strength component into football and will help with their endurance.

With the donations, the football team will be able to compete on a higher level and work on their progress in the sport.

The girls will be more motivated at practice and games if they had the proper gear to work with. My girls already work hard and practice 6 days out of the week, including Sundays, and now will have a better understanding of teamwork and pride.
