the project

Hello All,

My name is Eric Nelson and I am the Athletic Director at Bishop Seabury Academy. This year I am pleased to announce the hiring of Jon Raney as head coach of our varsity boys basketball team. Coach Raney replaces the retiring Ashley Battles, who led the Seahawks for the past 8 years. 

Coach Raney, like Coach Battles before him, has asked for a shot training machine called a Shootaway Gun. This training machine can be found in nearly every regional high school and university. I am committed to doing as much as possible to ensure that our coaches and players have the tools that allow them to compete at the highest possible level. With that being said, I am starting this page hoping to raise enough money to finally purchase this piece of equipment that will help us to compete with other schools on a level playing field. This expenditure lies outside the capability of what the basketball operating budget can support. 

Any money raised will be put toward a Shootaway Gun 8000 that will be available to both boys and girls teams in Junior High and High School.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Go Seahawks!

the steps

Once the funding is received, the Shoot-A-Way Gun will be ordered and shipped to Bishop Seabury Academy. We will need to allow 5 weeks for delivery. The machine will be available for use by Seabury Players right off the truck! 

why we're doing it

In March 2017, our Bishop Seabury varsity boys team reached the semifinals of the Kansas 2A State Championships. Our team battled through 6 overtimes and played our hearts out but ultimately lost 52-51. After that tough loss, we are shifting our focus to improve our game for next year. With more shooting practice, our team is confident we’ll elevate our skill level to make it to the finals next year. Your donation will go toward purchasing a Shoot-A-Way Machine that nearly every high school team across the country uses to improve their skills. We’re an inclusive team that welcomes every student who wants to join. Give today so that we can challenge each of our 60 boys and girls players at their unique skill level with this essential piece of equipment.
