My Students

My students come from diverse neighborhoods and multi-cultural backgrounds. I have students from all over the world-Central American, African, and Middle Eastern countries, who have come together to play and learn soccer.

These public school students often don't have the opportunities to participate in private teams or clubs.

The soccer program at our school has a much lower budget than our football and basketball programs, and we definitely need things to help motivate our players.

When the players get new equipment, it makes them feel a part of something bigger, and I would love to help grow the soccer culture of my school.

My Project

I've been watching lots of training videos. I only have a few balls and cones. I would like to add to that with training sticks, flags and new balls.

Our goalies also need the protection of a good pair of gloves.

Right now students have to provide their own. I would like to have a nice pair on hand at all times. Plus, sometimes I get in the goal to inspire them. (I'm a former goalie!)

There are many training tools out there, but I've settled on the basics plus a few new balls. Please understand that my team will appreciate all the gifts that come their way.
