Ms. Hodgdon from Peterborough NH is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

So You Wanna Be a Field Hockey Goalie?

Help me give my students basic field hockey equipment and goalie equipment which is too expensive for most families to own. The goalie is essential to the team - having enough protective equipment is important!

My Students

Field hockey has grown into such a huge program in our town, that it is hard to keep up with all of the needs for newcomers to try the sport risk-free. We have passionate young girls and even some boys who want to try the sport, but parents are not sure they want to or are financially able to provide the starter equipment, especially for goalies. This is a program where no cuts are made and kids as young as 3 can begin playing in the system all the way up to high school and even beyond. We are hoping to provide some basic equipment so these excited kids can join the fun!

My Project

Field Hockey in Amherst, NH is currently a huge sport. There are over a hundred girls in the programs in the middle school and high school alone. To ensure the continuation of these strong programs, we need to recruit and support goalies! Our goalies in Amherst are great, but we want to be sure they have the most up to date equipment.

Ensuring the safety of our goalies with new equipment is critical!

These pads will be a step to updating the equipment we currently have and ensure that future goalies have the opportunity to try out the position. Goalies are essential to the team and we want them to feel fresh, safe, and supported!
