Swing for the Fence

My students need these tee for hitting practice. The best thing about these tees is that you can replace only the small top piece when they get old or broken without replacing the entire tee.

My Students

My athletes are amazing young ladies with a will to be physically active and excel in softball. We are a culturally diverse low income community. These Young ladies are all heart on the field and off. They strive to maintain good grades, while being able to promote athleticism and school pride. These athletes foster all that is good in the name of softball. I want to reward these girls with all that I can to keep them moving forward in our sport.

My Project

The Tanner Tees will make it possible for my athlete's to work on learning to swing and connect with the ball before stepping in a batters box and facing a pitcher. These tees are sturdy and will not need to be replaced yearly. They will be used to establish hitting station rotations. This will give the coaches a chance to work individually with players that are struggling at the plate. I am determined to bring these athletes to the next level in hitting.

These will also help with learning to hit outside and inside pitches because the tee is easily adjustable.

The garden cart will help us get the equipment from location to location. We do not have a storage facility at our field and trying to move it all by hand for each game is difficult and time consuming.

Finally, the runners parachutes will help us with speed and agility. Some of my players are just learning the difference in running styles for speed. This will benefit my athletes by working becoming familiar with running on the balls of their and not flat footed. It will also help with being able to accelerate out of the batters box.

These young ladies are the absolute best at heart and desire. Please help me with the tools we need to add in the skills.
