My Students

Next year my school is converting to a 3rd, 4th and 5th grade school. I am very excited!! I want to do intramurals with my students. Most of my students can not afford to play recreational sports outside of school. They deserve that opportunity, and with your help I can make during school and after school opportunities possible for them. I have students with extraordinary athletic abilities that sadly may never be discovered. I would love to see them have a chance at college athletic scholarships.

My students lack confidence.

I need to help my children see themselves as winners. I will use sports to teach them that they can accomplish anything their heart desires with hard work and dedication. I want them to be able walk into middle school and high school with the attitude that they have as good a chance as anyone else to make the school sports team. My students deserve the same opportunity to succeed in life as everyone else. Poverty is keeping that from happening! Please help me change that!!

My Project

Having a Sabakiball Pro Set will give me another non-contact game to utilize for intramurals. Sabaki ball teaches team work, communication, catching, throwing, hitting a target and goalie skills. The skills you need to play just about any invasion game.

Kids Love Sabakiball!

Every player is a part of the action all of the time! All players play both offense and defense...even the goalies! Ball-Hogs and Hot-Dogs actually keep their team from scoring, there is no "off-sides" and by rule the action NEVER stops!

Using Sabaki ball as an intramural will teach my students respect, confidence, sportsmanship, dedication, communication skills and many other things. Children need all of these skills to be successful in middle school, high school, college and in the work force! Thank you for taking the time to read my project!!
