Blue Valley Northwest Girls Basketball

The Description

Blue Valley Northwest Girls Basketball is looking to be one of the most prestigious programs in the state. In order begin this journey we need to look the part. Thus we would like our girls to be outfitted in the same caliber gear as our Boys team and our competitors.

 

Due to incredible generosity of our administration we have already been able to purchase 40 brand new Adidas Practice Uniforms to outfit our Varsity, JV, C-Team and Freshman teams as well as,  20 game warmups for our Varsity & JV. Thanks to our school we have been able to check off our first two major needs but we will need your help with our remaining goals.

 

All money donated will benefit each of the girls on the BVNW Girls Basketball teams. Access to this new gear will provide our girls with more confidence on and off the court as they represent our program. Confidence is a key component of being a successful student-athlete. Providing our student-athletes with updated clothing and equipment will help to build that needed confidence to succeed.

 

We are using the online fundraiser Pledgecents. They have created a fundraising site for educators and take 0% of the money we raise unlike other sites that can take 15-30%.

 

TRAVEL SUITS

We would like to purchase new travel suits. Our hope is that all teams can be outfitted in matching gear for away games, so that we are look uniform each time we step off the bus!

 

Adidas Utility Top: 22 x $42 = $924

Adidas Utility Pants: 22 x $42= 924

 

Total= $1,848

TEAM BACKPACKS

Next we would like to purchase 20 new team backpacks! We want to make sure our ENTIRE PROGRAM is able to use these backpacks during the season as opposed to the old black duffle bags. While JV/Varsity already have them we would like make sure the other teams get them so we look uniform.

 

Adidas Team Stadium Backpacks w/numbers: 20 x $36 = $720

EQUIPMENT

These next 3 items we looking to acquire are connected together and will help our program for many years to come.

 

We would like to be able to purchase 1 ball cart, 1 ball cage, and 12 new basketballs.

The these items would help us out during practice, camps, and clinics. The ball cage will help us protect our equipment and ensure that it does not come up missing. It will also be nice to on par with other programs in our league, and the metro area. Giving our girls access to quality equipment everyday.

 

Ball Cart: $274

Ball Cage: $329

Basketballs: 12 x 62.50 = 749.88

Total = 1,352.88

TEAM SOCKS

Student Athletes love socks! They truly enjoy socks that show off and represent their school. Every school in which I have coached we have been able to purchase a team sock. These socks brought pride to our program as they were excited to show off  them off. I would like for our girls to wear these socks during the season and they will be asked to purchase them during the season, so if we are able to purchase them as a program it will help take that off the list in November.

Strideline Classic Crew Socks 40 x 10.59 = 423.60

We will just pick one of the designs (Actual Item)

TEAM BOOK STUDY

 

One thing that I have seen other coaches do successfully is incorporating a team book study. This engages students to think about more than just basketball during the 4 month period that they will have to work. This will help build your student athlete as a person as well as a basketball player. The book I’ve chosen is The Energy Bus: 10 rules to fuel your life, work and team with positive energy. by Jon Gordon. I chose this book as it reinforces the positive energy that I have spoken about in camp and workouts. This will help them carry it off the court as well. Another reason I chose this book is that it is not too taxing to read and can easily be incorporated into normal reading time for classes.I would love for our entire PROGRAM players and coaches to read this to help build the culture for all levels! Currently on Amazon the book cost 12.62

 

Energy Bus Books: 40 x 12.62 = 504.80

This can help pay for summer tournament fees, camps, and any potential travel expenses for our student-athletes.

If we do not reach our goal, our first priority will be to purchase the travel suits, followed by backpacks, to ensure that our  entire program can benefit right away. Next the purchases would be used to buy new equipment, socks and finally the books.
