My Students

Do you remember playing volleyball? Help students be less afraid of the volleyball.

I work with students with special needs.

I need to have equipment for their needs - regular volleyballs are too hard for them. Most are afraid of the regular volleyballs because they are too hard. These volleyballs are softer & easier for them to learn how to bump & set & serve.

My Project

The new volleyballs will make it so the students are not afraid. When they are serving the regular volleyballs sting their hands. They students will be more engaged with these volleyballs. They will want to learn how to bump, set, and serve the volleyball.

By getting these volleyballs it will make a difference for these students.

They will not be afraid to play & get to experience playing volleyball like their peers do. My students want to learn, play & have fun.
