Softball Success

My students need softball gloves that will give them the opportunity to see the success on the field that they have worked so hard for in practice.

My Students

My students are part of a developmental middle school softball team who love representing their school and being part of a team. My players embrace everything that is important about being a student-athlete.

I can always count on my team to work hard, treat everybody with respect, and represent their school with pride.

Win or lose, I am proud of the effort my girls show and their desire to improve on and off the field. They understand that lessons learned on the field are lessons that they can apply to their social, emotional, and academic development as well.

My Project

I am the coach of a developmental middle school softball team. My girls work hard in every practice and desperately want to see their efforts translated into wins on the field.

With the proper equipment, I know my team will be able to turn their hard work into success on the field.

My girls work too hard to not have the opportunity to reach their full potential. If I were able to provide quality softball gloves for my team, it could give them the confidence and tools needed to reach the next level.

It is crucial to the development of a middle school student that they see positive results from their hard work. Please help me teach my girls that hard work and perseverance create a path towards positive results.
