Uniforms for Bitty Basketball Team!

My students need basketball uniforms to compete in their basketball games.

My Students

The students I serve are categorized as the underserved and the underrepresented; students of color, living in poverty, and have endured trauma. With all odds against them, my students are enthusiastic, determined, and passionate about being great students and great athletes. They come to school ready to learn and look forward to using their skills they have acquired in school in and off of the court.

Because all of my students receive free lunch, many are limited in resources that prevent them from participating in extracurricular sports-related activities after school; limiting their amount of daily exercise, learning good sportsmanship, and being disciplined.

My Project

Students will use the Jordan basketball uniforms every Friday in a year- around bitty basketball league. The basketball uniforms confirm unity and solidarity. By receiving a donation, students and families can focus on building a solid team, increase athletic ability, and winning games instead of focusing on the financial burden that purchasing uniforms may cause. We want students to feel confident, feel good and look good while on the court. We want to build the team up!

Our goal in purchasing uniforms will allow our team to be acknowledged for their professionalism, uniqueness, athletic ability, exemplifying good sportsmanship and team morale.
