Many of our kids can’t wait to get to 6th grade so they can be on one of our teams–especially our girls who often have little to no opportunity to play organized team sports in the community.
I have the privilege of coaching both girls volleyball and girls softball at my school. My student athletes love playing! Many of them have never been on a team before they get to 6th grade. We start with the basics–team building, cooperation, rules, responsibility, leadership. Then we move on to the fundamentals of the game. Eventually they own the court and the field and absolutely flourish!
I have seen many young women experience their first taste of personal success and achievement through sports in school.
It’s so rewarding to see these young women become empowered and take these lessons into other areas of their lives. Unfortunately our district has cut nearly all funding for middle school sports programs, so we need help getting the softball gloves and volleyballs for our teams. Girls’ Sports Rock
