School Spirit for Girls Golf Team

The cost of polo shirts, hats, a chipping net and putting mat is $541, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I coach the Girls Golf Team at Galileo Academy. Galileo Girls Golf Team was started two years ago. We are a relatively young team. However, our team had achieved a lot during these two years. Galileo's Girls Golf Team finished in second place in the 2005 season and competed in the Team Championship tournament. This is a significant accomplishment given the fact that most of my students are beginner golfers. Despite this wonderful accomplishment and because of the lack of funding, my Girls Golf Team still doesn't have a uniform. They are using borrowed polo shirts from my Boys Golf Team! I am requesting funding for purchasing uniforms for my Girls Golf Team. The uniform will consist of a girl's polo shirt and a cap, in our school color. We will put our school name and logo on the shirt and cap, and will seek other funding to cover this cost. Having a uniform for my students would help my golf team improve their pride, confidence in the upcoming golf season, and boost their school spirit! I really think that they deserve it and they earned it! In addition, I would like to request some golf equipment: a chipping net and practice putting mat. These equipment will help my golf team improve their skills and do even better in the upcoming golf season. I would also be sharing this equipment with my Boys Golf Team. While golf is a fun and challenging sport, my students may not realize that they also learn other valuable skills, such as patience, teamwork, sportsmanship, time management skills, analytical and math skills. All in all, they become better students. Golf is more than just a game. We would greatly appreciate your support and consideration for this request.
