the project

We are helping Coach Cole of Sheffield High School develop a girls soccer team. Our hope is to raise enough money to help cover the player and teams fees, purchase equipment or receive equipment donations, provide additional coaching and training, assist with transportation needs, and improve the home field conditions, so players have a safe environment for practice and hosting games.

Through the hard work and dedication of Coach Cole and the generous support of donors, the Sheffield High School Boys team has already earned a name for itself by making it to the state tournament in 2015.  Coach Cole hopes to achieve the same success for this girls team.

the steps

Through social media and personal networks, we intend to share our project and request donations.  We will host equipment drives to collect gently used gear, like cleats and shin guards.  We will coordinate with the coaches to attend practices and games.  We will organize a field clean up day at the school.

why we're doing it

As a group of women who enjoy playing soccer, we know the benefits of playing sports firsthand.  According to the Women’s Sports Foundation:

- High school girls who play sports are less likely to be involved in an unintended pregnancy; more likely to get better grades in school and more likely to graduate than girls who do not play sports.

- Girls and women who play sports have higher levels of confidence and self-esteem and lower levels of depression.

- Girls and women who play sports have a more positive body image and experience higher states of psychological well-being than girls and women who do not play sports.

- 80% of the female executives at Fortune 500 companies identified themselves as former “tomboys” — having played sports.

Practice and Recruitment

Thanks to all of the generous donations, so far, the young ladies at Sheffield have begun practicing after school in preparation for their first game.  They have also been able to recruit other friends and players to join the team, now that the financial barriers have been alleviated.  There is still work to be done and no contribution is too small.
