Fun at Bat
We signed up for the Fun at Bat Program with the AZ Diamondbacks. We were able to get resources to teach students the fundamentals of football. We got equipment from Franklin Sporting Goods donated, Certificates from Whataburger and Lesson Plans and Books about Baseball fundamentals from the AZ Diamondbacks.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We started off with two classrooms. One fourth and one fifth. Next we will expand to the other classrooms after they complete the 8 lessons of the program.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

It was nice to give the students access to baseball equipment. The fundamentals were very important. Students got to learn about sportsmanship and teamwork.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We went to the Diamondbacks community website and signed up for the program during a SHAC meeting. We were approved and got the materials sent to us. We do not have a PE teacher so we are implementing the program a few classes at a time .
