We have some awesome girl athletes at our school and would love to give them more opportunities to learn and play a team sport. Studies have shown that those who participate in organized sports tend to have better self-esteem, better organization and time-management skills, better overall health, lower drop-out rates, and less participation in "risky" behavior. We would love to give our girls a chance to play on our first-ever softball team. Sports equipment is often very expensive and we simply can not expect the families at our school to bear the burden and expense of all the equipment needed to begin playing softball. We need your help!
We are a K-8 school and often our Jr. High students do not have access to all of the extracurricular activities that other bigger Jr. Highs have.
This year we are trying to start a softball team for the first time, but we have NO equipment.
We need your help! Unfortunately, we have no funds available to start this team, so this is our only chance! Help us empower our girls and teach them about teamwork, sportsmanship, and all the other amazing things that come with organized sports.
Our girls will use this equipment to have the bare minimum to begin playing in our district league. We will ask that each girl come up with a way to provide their own softball glove, but we would like to provide them with helmets, plenty of balls, practice equipment such as tees, and one of the most expensive, but necessary pieces of equipment for fast-pitch softball--catchers gear! Thank you in advance for your generosity and help on our softball project.
