Our need is for additional sports equipment for our school. We are currently building a second gym for our students and for the community. This gym will allow us to expand our athletic program to include intramural sports, enable our athletic teams to end practice at a reasonable hour, and allow us to host camps and tournaments for our community. However, we need more basketball and volleyball equipment so that we can start these programs.
Our school has fielded multiple volleyball and basketball teams over the years. With only one small gymnasium, our teams practice late into the evening in order to find gym time for these teams. This situation is not ideal for students who need their sleep. A second gym will allow us to hold multiple practices at once, enabling our students to get home at a reasonable hour. Additionally, our community is growing and a second, larger gym will allow us to host summer camps and tournaments.
Funding allows us to purchase additional items we need to implement our plans. Right now, we have equipment that allows us to have one team practice at a time. Our new gym will allow us to have up to three teams practicing at once. This will require additional equipment such as basketballs, practice jerseys, volleyballs, nets, and standards. This equipment will also be used in an intramural program designed to promote participation among all students and will allow us to host summer camps.
