The Better Bulldog

My students need basketballs for practice, a rack to store the basketballs, an air pump to keep air in the balls, and cones to work on agilities.

My Students

The girls on our basketball team are a diverse group of multi-sport athletes that participate in many extracurricular activities. They come from various economic backgrounds and are all motivated to succeed. They are leaders, exhibit good sportsmanship, and collaborate well with each other.

They work hard to be the best, on and off the court; excelling academically and athletically.

Overall, our girls are amazing athletes and superb young ladies. We want them to have pride in themselves, their team, and their community.

My Project

Over the years, the girls’ basketball program has continued to grow and become a team that many girls look forward to being a part of. Together, we strive to succeed not only during the season, but in the pre and postseason, as well. Although the school and athletic department has assisted us with various items, we want to raise funds for additional equipment.

The basketballs are the most necessary equipment to play the game.

It will allow the players to work on the basketball essentials, such as dribbling, shooting, and passing. The 7 piece inflation kit is vital because if the balls do not bounce properly, it could negatively affect the game. Too much or too little air in the ball will cause the ball to disintegrate and/or explode. Having a ball that does what it's supposed to do is equally important. The durable rack will store up to 12 basketballs and make it easy to keep up with them. Basketball is a dynamic sport that requires various movements and rapid transitions. The agility cone set will allow the girls to start, stop, and quickly change directions while maintaining proper alignment.In addition, these items will give the girls the opportunity to learn the fundamentals and improve their skills.

When you donate to this project, you will be supporting a group of outstanding student-athletes who consistently work hard. They are dedicated to the team's success and the development of our program.
