Thanks for pickle-ball nets


On behalf of the students and staff at Scarselli Elementary School, we would like to thank the Douglas County Education Foundation for approving a grant request for P.E. equipment. Specifically, the monies are to be used for nets for the sport of Pickle-Ball. Pickle-ball can be thought of in terms of miniature tennis. The key factor is it can be done indoors in the Multi-Purpose rooms of school buildings. The sport can also be used (with adjustments) over a variety of grade levels while also engaging students with special needs. In addition, the skills involved with this sport align with federal and state standards for Physical Education. With the purchase of the nets we can now move forward to implement this fun, active, and exciting sport.
