Making a Difference One Stick at a Time!

My students need field hockey sticks, game balls, uniforms, and goalie equipment to learn the game of field hockey and to be successful on the field.

My Students

As a teacher/coach in a low-income/high-poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Our school district is trying to grow our girls' sports programs. I coach field hockey at our middle school. My girls are new to the sport and do not have the resources to buy quality equipment. Most equipment is donated from sports teams around the area. Last year we grew the program and I did not have enough materials. We had to share equipment.

My Project

This donation will provide my students with an opportunity to build character, integrity, and commitment outside of the classroom. Our girls come to practice and work extremely hard.

We are trying to grow our girls’ sports program and field hockey could be a great avenue for our girls to continue their education in college.

With sticks, game balls, uniforms, and goalie equipment, my athletes will learn the fundamentals of field hockey. The sticks, game balls, and uniforms are necessary to build a foundation of field hockey that has the potential to evolve into a school-wide program for all skill levels and grades. Students will be able to learn the game of field hockey. This will positively impact the lives and friendships of my athletes.
