We believe that our program can help a child increase their confidence, optimism and sense of belonging through these relationships. Children feel like they are members of the team, contributing in ways only they can, to provide insight and inspiration to the student-athletes that cannot be found on the field or in the classroom.

  • Implementing the graduation process once the child is ready to transition into an 'alumnus' of the program;
  • Gaining feedback on ideas about improving the experience, in addition to getting referrals of other families and team that would be interested in participating;
