Our boys and girls athletes are determined and hard-working. They put more into learning the game and developing as players more than most. They are all seventh and eighth-graders. They are enthusiastic and energetic. We are in a rural area with no outdoor parks or places to play football or basketball except in the school setting.
They want to become better athletes but do not always have the funds to pay for what they need to improve their skills.
School budgets are spread thin with physical education and athletics the last to receive funding.
I am fortunate to have amazing kids who are willing to work hard and give it their all at practice and games. Over the last few years, we have had a problem when we are on the road with their items, clothes, shoes, and wallets getting stolen.
The ability to put all of your items in a travel bag and place behind the bench would set the boys' and girls' minds at ease.
They would be able to transport their uniforms in the bag to the game and after changing in the locker room they could take the bag and place it behind their spot on the bench. These bags will be used for two boys' teams and one girls' team. This will help with securing their belongings while they play the game they love.
Your support will make a huge impact on these young men and women as they prepare for the upcoming season and during games.
