My Students

My students are super nerdy, and also super fun. They enjoying playing softball very much.

The other day, I overheard a player saying to another: "if you don't have fun doing it, don't do it.

If you do, give it your 100%". It does sum up what the philosophy of the team is. It is fantastic to coach such a wonderful group of young ladies. The team has 15 members.

We just had a nice makeover of our sports facilities - the locker rooms were upgraded and the concession stand rebuilt. We are raising money to install lights on the field. We are excited at the prospect of being able to play in the evening.

I proud of my softball players and I can't wait to send you pictures of my team!

My Project

Our team participate in high school softball competition.

Our 15 girls are pretty successful at softball, but we could certainly do with 12 fast pitch softballs, a bucket organizer, three hit-a-way swing trainers and 2 dozens of practice balls.

These items will come in handy during practice and competition. Girls practice every day of the week, after school for two hours during the pre-season and in-season they play in competition 2 to 3 days during the week and practice on the other days.

We thank you very much for your consideration and appreciate your presence on DonorsChoose. Thanks for your support of public education.
