As an athletic program, we believe we can build a positive culture at our high school through our various sports. We also believe we can give students a sense of purpose and belonging by getting them involved in not only sports but building a positive image for themselves and the school. Making considerable change in anything is not cheap, but with a few resources we could embark on a life-changing journey that will impact athletes for years to come.
We want to be able to give student-athletes exposure as well as represent GSC and the greater Houston area:
•Provide students the opportunity to explore being college athletes
•Represent GSC around the greater Houston area and beyond
•Build a program that can sustain and attract students to GSC
The materials listed—shoes, pants, and fleece—will help our program tremendously. New shoes to last the season and warm-ups help us as a competitive varsity team in the Houston, Texas, area. Our goal as players and coaches is to represent our school and city well wherever basketball may take us. However, here at GSC, students are repeatedly reminded that the odds are stacked against them, whether at home, at school, or within social interactions.
GSC has been under-developed, served, and equipped as far as athletics go for the past decade, and we wish to change that.
With no booster club or public funding us, these materials will give our student-athletes the opportunity to not only be competitive but also have the resources to sustain great results for this season and seasons to come.
