The FCYSS BB program is one of the best sports clubs that I have come across. It truly is a program for the entire family. I currently have two children in the program and one more will join next year. It is a small and tightly knit group of about 15 to 20 children per year, but they are very welcoming and encouraging to newcomers. Even before my family was involved the FCYSS BB program was successful, being competitive at both the state level in Arkansas and at national competitions. Even this past year they competed at the Daisy National BB Championships in Rogers, AR, and emerged as the best BB club to come out of the state of Arkansas.
I started out as merely a spectator, watching my children as they participated in practices and events. Now, this season I have the privilege of being the head coach of the FCYSS BB program. I want to be able to take this program to the next level. Part of that dream is being able to make sure that every child has the proper equipment, that every child has the resources to travel to our competitions, and to put on our own awards banquet ceremony for the children that put in so much time and effort into this activity. In order for that to happen I need to raise money to purchase the needed and proper equipment for any child that cannot afford to purchase their own, to provide resources for travel and registration fees for families that need assistance, and to purchase awards for each child that earns them at the end of our season.
Our children and their parents put in so much time and effort for practices. Many travel from all over Faulkner County to participate and contribute to the FCYSS BB program. In scheduled practices alone they commit to anywhere between 4 to 6 hours per week, and sometimes that can come in one evening's practice. That does not include any personal preparation time that many of these children put into this activity. I would like to reward that effort with a few increases to our resources, and specialized awards for the children to celebrate their hard work and successes.
I need your support and the support of our friends, families, and community to make this happen. Please contribute what you can. I don't expect massive donations, but working together I know that we can achieve massive results. I would like to reach our goal of $1000.00 before the new year. The beginning of 2018 will bring with it the Arkansas State BB Championships, and our opportunity to qualify for nationals in July. And in February, with your generous support, we will have our first ever BB awards ceremony for our children and their families. Thank you so much for your support!
