My Students

My junior high volleyball team wants to support our opponents in building the strength of their own volleyball programs. I have had the privilege of coaching great kids over the past six years. In that time we have seen a tremendous amount of success on the court and in the classroom. We frequently play against schools that don't have near the amount of community support we are blessed with. We would like to support these programs in some small way.

My Project

We want have a positive impact on others by providing them with volleyballs for practice and games.

Many of the schools we visit to play volleyball don't have adequate equipment for practice.

This makes it difficult for them to compete and in turn results in a less than positive experience regarding volleyball.

We want these girls' experiences to be positive and ultimately lead to the strengthening of the game of volleyball. At the close of Junior High School, these two teams attend the same high school. We would like them to have the same opportunities to grow into the venture of high school volleyball.
