We’re excited to tell you about our new Cincy SC Buddy program!
Studies show that youth mentorship programs lead to better attitudes and increased self-confidence, provide exposure to new and different perspectives, help develop strong communication skills, and improve goal-setting for mentors and mentees. All good things!
We’ve paired Big Buddies with Little Buddies of the same gender, typically separated by about 3 years. Our oldest players are Bigs, our youngest are Littles, and our middle-age players are both. We didn’t do strict team-to-team match ups because the numbers don’t work, but many of your teammates will have matches on the same teams.
On 3/25/22 we sent out emails with your matches. This program is just intended to help players feel more connected. Other than sending the short About Me info to your matches, there’s no time commitment required. Having that connection to a younger or older player just might make a big difference to someone’s life someday.
Try to Meet Up?
You have the information you need to facilitate a meet up, if you want. Take a look at the team calendar for your match and see if you’ll cross paths at training or have a game at Clear Creek on the same day. And definitely plan to cheer on your match during a game at The EPIC Cup!
