Holly Volleyball prACTice like a Champion

My students need quality volleyballs most of ours are 10 years old. Blocking equipment would help develop their skills to a higher level

My Students

The holly high school volleyball team is an extremely hard working group of girls who have bright futures. They not only are an extremely talented group of individuals but very hard working as well. Holly school is a poverty level, rural area school. Unfortunately our entire budget is stretched to pay salaries for our wonderful teachers. A donation would be used to help our talented girls get the athletic equipment we so desperately need to help further their growth as a team and individual athletes.

My Project

These materials will help the holly wildcat volleyball program grow and develop tremendously. Most of our volleyballs have been used for ten plus years. We have to air them up every other day. Something as simple as higher quality volleyballs would give us more time to spend on developing skills rather than airing up volleyballs before every practice. The blocking equipment would allow us to learn to hit around the block which is something we struggle with in games. We currently have the girls block each other which uses a tremendous about of energy and is not as accurate as the blocking equipment would be. Thank you for your time and consideration. We have the talent to do great things we just need help with quality equipment
