Gym Equipment For A School With No Gymnasium

The cost of gymnasium equipment for a Sports Club, including hockey and soccer equipment from Sportime, Inc., is $528, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am an IEP teacher/Reading Instructor/Sport teacher at PS 130 in Kensington, Brooklyn, NY. Our school is a Title 1 school, and approximately 95% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. I recently started an after school/extra-curricular program for our students. I have twelve to fifteen children each week that are involved in this enrichment program. There are many reasons I began this program. They are: 1. The school has no gymnasium. 2. The school has no gym teacher. 3. I think the children should also learn teamwork and this is a good way to promote that. I think the children deserve the chance to unwind from a long day of sitting in the classroom. Most schools have the time where their students can go play structured sports in the gym, but our school only has this time during lunchtime. Now that it is winter, the students cannot even go outside and play due to the cold air. The equipment my school does have is very old and most of the it is broken. I am trying to also open up the students minds to try new sports such as soccer, hockey and softball. When teaching the students how to play hockey, equipment that fits the children is important. My school currently has hockey sticks that my children have to hunch over to play with the right way. I wish to purchase a DOM "CUP" HOCKEY set. It comes with 10 hockey sticks, 2 goalie sticks, 2 hockey pucks and 2 hockey balls. Since I am teaching them hockey and soccer, hockey/soccer nets would also be useful. It comes with two fold away goals which would be great for my sport club. The next sport I am in the process of teaching the students is soccer. We currently have no equipment for soccer. I am using a kickball as a soccerball. In order to teach them the appropriate way to play the sport I would like to order three soccer balls. I would also like to order three outdoor soccerballs for when it does get nice out. This equipment would make the students really improve in their sports skills, and most importantly, in their teamwork skills. My whole point of teaching them teamwork skills is so they can use them in multiple areas in their lives such as the classroom, at home, and in the community. These are skills everyone should have and use. This Sports Club would provide my students with all that, and much more.
