Volleyball Transportation System for Lady Jaguars Volleyball Team

My students need a volleyball transport system to properly store competition volleyball courts complete with standards, protective pads, nets, judge’s stand and balls. It rolls easily from gym to storage room.

My Students

Eastway Middle School is a Title I urban school located just east of downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. Eastway is a part of the Beacon Learning Community. We have a diverse population with 808 students. The student demographics are 32.8% African American, 53% Hispanic, 8.5% Asian, 4% white, .7% multi-racial and .1% American Indian. Approximately 11.5% of our students are identified as students with disabilities (SWD) and 28.7% are identified as limited English proficient (LEP). Eastway has a 1 to 1 computer ratio.

My Project

The Lady Jaguars needs a way to quickly set up the court for the team's next volleyball match. It would be safer and more organized if the team has a way to organize and transport the volleyball net system from storage..

It's easy for our young ladies to store and transport all the necessary game-time equipment on the cart, so after-school games or practices can get started right away.

Volleyballs and other loose tools and accessories can be placed in one convenient location. The system is on wheels that allow easy maneuvering of bulky equipment by middle school aged students
