Scrimmage Vests for Practice

Help me give my students scrimmage vests to enhance their ability to differentiate between teams so they can effectively scrimmage at practice.

My Students

My student-athletes are driven to succeed on and off the field. They are leaders on campus as well as in the community. They show up every day striving to get better, even in the offseason. Many even help run our youth camps. Rural Arizona schools, like ours, do not have the funding to properly support their sports programs. Our football program runs primarily on the generosity of donors and fundraising. These boys work just as hard as every other team. They are striving for college scholarships. They should not be limited because of the location and financial ability of their school.

My Project

If this project is funded by generous donations, we will be able to scrimmage more effectively during practice. Currently, the players all wear the same color practice jerseys which make scrimmaging confusing. It is hard for the players to quickly identify who is on their team and who is not. The scrimmage vests they currently have are ripped and falling apart and many of them are unusable.

With these new scrimmage vests, one team will be able to put them on and the 2 teams will be clearly identified.

This will hopefully provide or more realistic game scenario for players.
