My students need soccer training equipment, shin guards, and a bench for games.
When I started coaching in 2012, it was difficult to find enough students to field a team. Most of our students didn't grow up playing soccer and many were struggling with academic eligibility and also had difficulty getting their annual sports physical completed due to lack of affordable health care services.
We still face those same challenges, but year after year we overcome them by working together as a school to improve our academic and our athletic performance.
We also organized and found partners to provide free physicals for our student-athletes. We are very proud to have added a girls soccer team and a boys JV team so even more students can experience the benefits of interscholastic athletics. The biggest remaining challenge for us is securing proper equipment with which to train and compete.
Due to school budget constraints, almost all our equipment has been used gear donated by generous clubs and school teams in wealthier areas. While we appreciate their gifts, relying on second-hand equipment means that our balls are always going flat and falling apart and that we never have enough to run our practices like they should be run. That's especially the case now that we have added a JV team.
Having decent, reliable practice balls and sturdy practice goals will allow our coaches and players to use our limited time more effectively on team-building as well as skill and tactical development.
The shin guards will make sure that all our players have the proper equipment to participate safely. Lastly, the team bench is important to helping our team stay unified and focused while on the sidelines.
