My Students

These students are ambitious and determined. They are driven and motivated to create a youth softball league. These students want the opportunity to compete in a local youth softball league since they don’t have the opportunity to compete until they are in ninth grade at our district. The students want to learn the basics and foundations of softball and build their skills prior to ninth grade. These girls are motivated and want to have the opportunity to play and compete in softball in a youth program.

My Project

These materials will use to create a youth softball program in our schools. We don’t have a youth team and the students don’t get the opportunity to play in their district before ninth grade. This equipment will allows us to form two separate teams and compete in a local youth league in our community. This will allow for kids to get the opportunity to play sports starting at a young age and build strong foundational skills. The equipment will allow the students to build foundational skills and allow them to learn the game at a younger age. The equipment will also allow the students to play with protective and appropriate equipment.
