My Students

Greetings! I am very excited to be a part of our middle school soccer program. This was our first year and our boys have made it to the finals. Although we had amazing participation from our students, my goal is to get even more involved.

Many of our students have only played a "playground" style soccer throughout their childhood.

Our hope is to educate them more on proper skills, techniques, and rules in the hopes that it will give them a better opportunity for a high school or even college team.

My Project

With your help in getting this equipment, my girls and boys will have an amazing opportunity! They are in middle school, so they have the ability and understanding of soccer. Now it's time to help them get the techniques and skills to enjoy the game more.

This equipment will help me and my colleagues training aids needed to educate them on proper techniques.

Some of those skills we can teach with the soccer balls and training aids, like the CoachDeck, Kick Solo, and passing gates will be things like dribbling with control, passing with power and accuracy, and proper areas of the foot to kick the with. The whistles and dry erase boards will assist the coaching staff with organization implementation of positions. My feeling is that the better their techniques, the more confident they get, and most importantly, the more fun they will have!
