My Students

Spring is here and softball is in the air. We have an enthusiastic group of girls you are committed to this sport. They support and encourage one another and help build up all players no matter their age or ability. As a coaching staff, we need to provide these girls with all of the equipment we need.

This year we have over 85 girls signed up for 3rd- 8th grade youth softball.

Our girls are excited to play, learn, grow and have fun. For some of the girls, this is their first exposure to a team sport. We want each season to be the best season yet and do all that we can do help build the success of this program and give these incredible athletes something to look forward to from season to season.

My Project

Our youth softball program is comprised of 85 girls ranging from 3rd- 8th grade. Each year there are expenses, such as paying the umpires, equipment, uniforms, travel, etc. Those expenses make our budget tight for extra things.

We want every girl to have the opportunity to play softball and be a part of the team.

The equipment that we are requesting will greatly improve and offer more flexibility during our practices. Right now our equipment is spread thin amongst the different age groups and teams. With these items we will be able to provide more for our athletes.

The pitching machine will allow us to practice both indoors and outdoors and with a snowy and rainy spring here in Wisconsin, indoor practices happen more often than not. We need balls for the pitching machine and bats along with equipment bags to keep things organized and well taken care of.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting our youth softball program.
