After observing that my middle school students have nothing to do after school, and have poor exercise, eating habits, and low motivation, I decided to start a girl's soccer team at my school. I wanted to specifically target girls, because their needs often get forgotten and I think it is important to foster their confidence. Now when people ask, I say I teach English, History and Soccer! I teamed up with the YWCA program at my school. This means that the 15-20 girls who come daily spend an hour on homework with tutors before homework. After homework, the girls are given a free snack and we begin our workout. We have been working on general fitness, ball skills, rules of the games, and playing practice games. The girls are ecstatic to get the chance to play. Some had never kicked a ball before but are smiling broader than I have ever seen smiles broaden. I was even able to get tickets to take them to a professional soccer "Los Angeles, Galaxy" game, which they watched spellbound. But we are a long way from bending it anything like Beckham. We need your help to be able to begin playing teams from other schools. Your donation will help us buy the practice jerseys and supplies necessary to become a REAL soccer team.
