My students need basketballs to work on their skills and hand-eye coordination as well as a bag in which to hold the equipment and a ground marker to encourage spacing.
My students have recently discovered the game of basketball. Even though the equipment that they have is not the greatest, these girls have fallen in love with the game.
My students are amazing, hardworking young women.
They decided that they wanted to have a school basketball team this year and they asked me to be their coach. Everyday after school these 12 young women listen intently as I teach them the game and the importance of hard work and sportsmanship. We practice outside, in the elements, everyday. These girls need the proper materials to learn to play the game properly.
My students will use these materials to replace the broken down, lopsided equipment that we currently have to work with. They will use the basketballs to improve their hand-eye coordination. The most important thing that they will learn, however, is the importance of teamwork and that you can achieve any goal when you work towards it together. They will also gain confidence and realize that they can do anything that the boys can do. My students need basketballs to work on their skills and hand-eye coordination as well as a bag in which to hold the equipment and a ground marker to encourage spacing.
Donations to this project will give confidence to this outstanding group of girls and to future teams of girls who want to work together and learn an outstanding game.
My students are eager to learn and love the game. It will change their lives by showing them that there are no limits and that they can do anything as well as anyone else if they put their minds to it.Read More
