My students need equipment to continue to play indoor. We currently use old hockey goals and convert them to be able to play indoor. We also can utilize the soccer tennis nets in the gym!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The girls in our program come from families where sports aren't seen as a priority. They instead are told to focus on school and family. Giving them a chance to be free of those responsibilities and concentrate on their happiness is one of the joys of the sports.
These girls work 11 months out of the year to be competitive in summer league play, tournaments, preseason, league and into playoffs.
They rarely get a break. They love what they get to be a part of and work towards a common goal each and every day.
We are constantly trying to find ways to be creative when it comes to limited space and training for our program. The girls are able to use the small goals in the gym and practice touch. The small-sided games allow for the girls to get as many touches as possible and improve on skill work as well as communication. These goals and ball will give us the opportunity to play without borrowing equipment from PE.
Along with that, the soccer tennis net will allow us to also work on touch with the girls practicing their volley's back and forth.
We have used the two previous ones donated on the last project and realized how well they worked and want to expand the amount of girls who can participate.
