Vanessa DeGroot started this petition to Carle Place School District and

High School sports teach valuable life lessons like self discipline and time management skills.  These young athletes learn how to set goals and achieve them, how to be team players, how to communicate with others, and how to accept and handle both defeat and success.  Being a part of a team provides students with a support group during one of the most challenging stages of their lives as they become surrounded by teammates and coaches who inevitably become family.  For all of these reasons and so many more, encouraging our students to be a part of team and to play sports is so very important, and it is our job to make sure they feel encouraged, and supported.  When looking at the girls varsity softball field there is a sense of neglect.  And in comparison to the Boys Varsity Baseball field, Softball seems like an afterthought at best.  The field does not have proper drainage; the bases need to be replaced; the land is not level where the dirt of the infield meets the grass which can cause potential injuries during a game or practice; there is not a proper dugout nor is there enough bleacher seating for spectators.  We are asking that some time be put into maintaining this field to show these girls that the Carle Place School district and the Carle Place community members support them and their hard work and dedication to the sport of Softball.
