Helmets for HVA

Help me give my students helmets so they can have the proper safety equipment.

My Students

We are the baseball program at HVA. We are working to try and get equipment needed for our program.

Equipment is something our team uses every single practice!

However, because we do not have the proper equipment, our players are not able to get the work in that is needed to be successful.

I would like to add batting helmets to our program. This will ensure our players are safe and properly equipped.

Our baseball players do not have helmets and this can be a major safety issue.

My Project

This project is for helmets for our baseball players. Safety is a major issue. We do not have any helmets in our program right now. These helmets also offer the EXT flaps. These flaps offer even more protection than the regular helmets do.

This will ensure safety for our players.

Our players will not be able to practice unless they have the proper safety equipment. This project will allow us to provide a safe environment for our players.

Having these helmets will allow our players to have more practice time as well. If we have helmets we will be able to take batting practice. We cannot take batting practice unless we have helmets.
