My Students

Our school is in the process of building and structuring a track and field team for our high school and jr. high. We are excited about joining in local competitions with other high schools in our area.

Our school has competed in track for the past 2 seasons with limited student interest, however we are currently experiencing a huge growth cycle and adding students every week.

This is an exciting time for our school. To make it the successful season we are hoping for, we are currently seeking donations for skill specific equipment.

My Project

This equipment will help all track/field athletes meet their top performance goals in running, speed, throwing, and highlight their motion skills. The fittest and most prepared athletes are the winning athletes. This equipment will help us prepare our athletes for their event and help them have the tools they need for practice.

Track and field teaches athletes to maintain a healthy body, and creates habits for healthy lifestyles later in life.

These student athletes will have better decision making and multitasking abilities after competing in season after season of the sport they love.

This equipment will help the athletes train and practice at our school before the big day!
