SEASON UPON US

The girls basketball season is approaching quickly.  Those that have generiously donated THANK YOU!!  We are still in need of a little help See More

THE STORY:

The John Hay Lady Hornets Basketball Program is striving to become a respectable program in Northeast Ohio(Cleveland). The school is known for the high standards in academics and the majority of the students go on to attend college. Athletics is not the reason students attend John Hay High school, it is the academic opportunities that they receive while enrolled at our 3 tiered school. The past two season the girls basketball team has improved. Some of these ladies are interested in pursuing basketball at the college level. The majority of the girls that participate in the Lady Hornets Basketball program carry above a 3.0 GPA. This fundraiser will help the program purchase reversible practice jerseys so that during practices they can scrimmage without having to think about who is in their group and who is in the other group. The past 2 season, one group has been given a solid color T-shirt to wear during practice times to distinguish between the two teams. The problem is when those groupings needed to be changed and the girls would have to switch T-shirts, it is a sanitary health issue. In some cases this has prevented young ladies from coming out for the program. With reversible practice jerseys, the ladies would be assigned one reversible practice jersey for the season and that would eliminate having to swap shirts during practice. Another issue that has arisen without practice jerseys is when the lady's go to other schools for scrimmage games. The Lady Hornets would have to take both sets of their game uniforms to participate in a multi-team scrimmage while all the other teams had their reversible practice jerseys. Through conversations with some of the young ladies, for them it is embarrassing to be in game uniforms at a scrimmage. So, our goal is to raise funds to purchase reversible practice jerseys and be recognized as a legitimate girls basketball program.  Your help is greatly appreciated!
