Mrs. M. from Pascagoula MS is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students competitive goggles, hand paddles, and kickboards so that my athletes have an equal opportunity to train and compete.
My student-athletes are in a low socio-economic community. Sports provide a positive outlet to ensure students have a healthy option to spend their time. Sports also promote discipline and studies show that students who are involved in sports have better academic performance.
Despite financial barriers students truly work hard with the minimal equipment that they do have.
Students who are well rounded are more likely to attend college and be successful. Being involved in a team sport not only helps with physical health but also their emotional and spiritual health.
Competitive goggles, paddles, and kickboards are essential for swim programs and training on a daily basis. This equipment will be used daily for intervals, drills, and a variety of kick patterns. My athletes will be given the opportunity to train at the same level as affluent swim programs. Competitive goggles will allow them to see underwater and gauge the swimming pool walls in order to make effective flip turns during competition and training. The kickboards and hand paddles will train swimmers on different kick and stroke patterns. Learning proper swim mechanics will make them better competitive swimmers.
By donating to my project, you will give my young athletes the opportunity to maximize their training, so that they are able to compete competitively with their counterparts.
It is very important that athletes feel prepared for competitions. Preparedness raises their confidence as an athlete and team. My swimmers will appreciate all donations and training equipment received through your organization.
