My Students

Our school is very successful in preparing students for college and success in life.

Yet, the achievements of our students are not limited to the classroom.

Indeed, they excel in sports.

Our school has fielded numerous state championship athletic teams, and the school is frequently a contender for the Ford Cup, an award given to the best athletic program in the state of Louisiana. I'm the athletics director.

We have 20 competitive sports teams including soccer, football, cross-country, golf, volleyball, tennis, swimming, basketball, softball, baseball, and indoor/outdoor track and field.

I personally coach girl's basketball and love it!

My Project

It is crucial to develop our players' muscles and to increase their hearts' capacities.

As a coach of my basketball players, I am also acting as strength & conditioning coach and would like a portable speaker system and a wireless microphone so my athletes can listen to music while they work out.

Music can be a stimulant. It can improve mood, improve muscle control and help the brain build key muscle memories.

And music makes you move! There are play lists that are crafted to match specific heart rates. It would be huge help to have these speakers.

Thank you for considering.
