My Students

The Lady Knights softball team is made up of sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade girls, many of whom do not have experience of being on an organized team. On top of their schoolwork, the children dedicate many hours every week to learning the sport.

Throughout the softball season, these girls dedicate many hours each week hitting, fielding, doing drills, and practicing basic fundamentals.

In addition, the Lady Knights have a minimum of two games per week during the regular season. During their off season, they continue to practice indoors. The girls also have the option of attending our summer clinic in order to practice the fundamental skills needed become their best.

My Project

To be a member of the Lady Knights softball team, members are not required to pay a fee. We rely on fundraising to procure all of the items we need. In order to learn the fundamentals of softball, our team needs the right equipment. In softball, it's not one-size-fits-all; specific gloves sizes and training material are needed for the different positions on the field.

Each member strives to do their best and with the use of the proper equipment will be given this opportunity.

Your help and support will add to the quality of our program and will give these group of girls the opportunity to excel in a sport they really enjoy.
