Getting More Muscles!

My students need one Polo Super Softouch double set so we can play field hockey safely.

My Students

Field Hockey is so much fun...but can be very dangerous! Long plastic sticks in the hands of extremely active PE students can be a recipe for injury. The number one rule in our class is "Safety First!" My students try very hard to play safely. But no high sticking is hard.

We are a Title 1 elementary school in a small school district in a small town.

When my students are at school they love to be outside and active...even if it's 100 degrees outside! Unfortunately, for too many of them, PE is the only time they get to be outside and active. They can't wait for their PE day to find out what new activity they get to learn and play. Lots of my students don't have the opportunity to participate in outside organized sports activities. I love introducing them to new sports.

My Project

Even though we don't have much grass, field hockey would be a wonderful sport to teach my students teamwork. It's a great cardio workout, along with a great hand/eye coordination activity. Super Softouch Polo equipment will allow my students to learn the game of field hockey while playing safely. I would love for all of my K-5 students to be exposed to this new sport.

Our school is feeling the crunch of budget cuts.

I'm very happy that PE is highly valued in our district, but our PE budget is ZERO dollars. Your donation could help expose my students to something they might otherwise never have an opportunity to learn. My students are so appreciative of their PE time. I want to expose them to as many different activities as I can so they will find something they love and pursue it for a lifetime of health and fitness!
