Sports Buddies Mentoring


Sports Buddies Mentoring

Our volunteers spend one-on-one time through participating in and observing sporting events. Actives will be planned for one Saturday out of the month for you to attend and see your little. All activities are planned and supervised through BBBS staff. All communication between the Big, Child, and Parent is through their case manager.

Be Active. Have Fun. Change a Life. 

It's simple too. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do, such as:

Attending sporting events

Playing sports

Attending a Sports Clinic

Playing Flag Football

Working out at the Gym

Swimming
