My students need exercise equipment such as bands to help prevent shoulder injuries, and medicine balls to aid in their strength training.
I work at a Pre-K through 5 school and also at a high school. Over half of the students at the high school are on free or reduced lunch. My athletes at the high school are very dedicated to their sport but when Hurricane Irma left a trail of destruction in our community, my students struggled to get back to normal.
Many of my parents are in the tourism or fishing industry and the stress of their livelihood and uncertain living conditions were stressors for my athletes.
When it was announced that the sports teams that they were a part of would continue as soon as possible, it lifted their spirits and they were very excited!
This is my fifth year coaching this team and we have spent a great deal of time working on our volleyball skills and now have made it to our district finals. However, in order to beat the other teams in our district, we need to get stronger physically. So, we are in desperate need of resistance bands and medicine balls. We also need a place that we can store and lock our equipment so that it is safe.
Now that we have improved our skills, we are ready to take our team to the next level by getting stronger and keeping our hitting shoulders healthy.
My athletes are very dedicated students and work hard both on and off the court. Receiving the exercise equipment will enhance their play and hopefully be the edge that we need to win districts!
