My Students

Track and field is a great sport for athletes of all levels, and helps provide life-long fitness. Our track team consists of 150 athletes, competing in 17 different events. This order will provide the proper equipment and facilities to help our team be successful in many future seasons.

Our track team is a great reflection of our very diverse school.

We have athletes that come from all socioeconomic backgrounds, ranging from extremely affluent, to athletes who require financial support. Track and field is a sport that allows all athletes to participate, regardless of ability. Many of our athletes benefit from the safe, structured environment that the track team provides.

My Project

My students need track and field equipment including stopwatches, team tents, an elastic foam crossbar, a resistance training parachute, a javelin tube, athletic tape, and measuring tapes. These materials will help provide coaches and athletes with the safest tools for a successful track and field program. The materials will also make it possible for our team to conduct proper track meets, which allow our athletes to compete at the highest level.

It has become more financially difficult to provide our athletes with the proper equipment.

These funds will allow our team to provide a safe, structured environment to conduct practice and competition.
