Ms. Stafford from Boston MA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Supporting Girls Soccer in the City

Help me give my students team travel benches, uniform gear like shorts and socks, equipment for practices like cone holders, pinnies, and portable equipment because we don't have a permanent home field.

My Students

Our students are a motivated bunch of urban youth at a public Boston 7-12 school who strive to excel academically as well as athletically.

Our girls soccer program has Varsity and JV teams, and we have been trying to expand opportunities for our younger students to develop and play.

Our program has been pretty successful in recent years, with three City Championships and two trips to the MIAA Division III North Conference State tournament, and I would attribute that to the increased participation and hard work of the girls who are on the teams. They want to play more than in our High School Fall Season, though many of them do not have the resources to join other expensive club teams, so we try to provide other school opportunities for soccer enrichment in the Winter and Spring.

My Project

My team doesn't have a set home field, but rather shares with many other schools. Some facilities are well maintained and there are benches and nets in good condition, while others do not have them.

We would love to have portable equipment so that not only can we ensure our girls have access to gear, but also so that the teams we host feel welcome and well equipped.

The benches and carry straps, soccer net fasteners, pop up equipment, and lightweight training gear will all help to make sure that whether or not our practice or game field is equipped, we are able to maximize our time during the fall season.
