Our students come from a low socio-economic background. Most have not experienced some of the activities that most students enjoy on a daily basis. While some of our students come with one strike, and sometimes two, they continue to display the tenacity I truly admire.
Our students appreciate and cherish the opportunities created by the school and community.
Our school would like to create as many opportunities for success as possible. We love our kids!
This project will allow the student/athletes to feel a sense of pride and self-worth knowing they have the same equipment as their competitive peers. These game basketballs will be used for practice, individual and team training as well as games for the off season and regular season.
The student/athletes will appreciate the opportunity provided by this donation.
The student/athletes will have the opportunity to have a basketball for each player for each practice. This opportunity will give each player more training, dribbling, and shooting at each practice. Teach them how to do it well and give them plenty of opportunity to improve!
