Soccer Without Socks? What?!

Help me give my students the essentials to play soccer. Playing soccer will be hard without socks. The goalies also need gloves. These kids deserve the basics!

My Students

In a low-income/high-poverty school, the students face many challenges both in and out of school. Our Title I school serves students in grades K-6. I am amazed each day by the students' perseverance. They come to class each day with a big smile on their face ready to learn.

Our school barely has enough money to run an after school program to provide a sports experience for the students.

Equipment is old and limited. While, uniforms are almost non-existent. All students should be able to have a fully funded sports program. I hope to gain these materials that the school district cannot afford but that the students deserve.

My Project

Donations to this project will not only effect this year's soccer team but the teams for years to come. The soccer team will use these essentials, the socks and gloves, to practice and play games. It will lift their spirits and motivate the students to do their best on the field.

Did you ever play soccer without the essentials?

It is very difficult. These amazing students should not have to go without socks to hold up their shin guards. The goalies also need gloves to protect their hands. These essentials are needed for safety. The resources would improve the team morale and overall safety.
