Soccer Balls for Success!

My students need soccer balls in order for them to practice the sport better.

My Students

Our school is faced with many challenges due to several circumstances. Not only is the school overcrowded, most of our students live in high poverty/ low-income families. Because we are a Title I school, most of our funding goes to try to get students the right education. Due to this, some our sports teams tend to be neglected and do not get the right or enough equipment to practice and play the sport.

In our soccer team, we teach more than just the sport; our players gain leadership skills, build character, and teaches the players how hard works pays off.

Our school does not have a specific budget to provide the sports team the equipment they need. Much of our equipment is very old, which makes it hard for us to try to educate the sport.

My Project

These new soccer balls would be a great help for our players. They will be put to good use since many of the balls that we practice with now are old and are not in great shape on a daily basis.

With these new soccer balls, my players will be able to practice better daily with the team and independently.

We would also be able to train the students in different drills simultaneously. They will be able to learn basic moves with the ball, passing, shooting and much more. I believe that this would also motivate the players with their character, as we show that we care and want nothing but the best for them.
