Sports Buddies Littles
Sports Buddies is a fun way to mentor through participating in and watching sports - and build community with other matches that love sports!
In this initiative, one-to-one mentoring friendships between an adult and youth are formed while engaging in athletic activities. Matches attend 1-2 events per month - all organized by BBBS staff. Activities run about two hours, and a calendar of activities will be provided each month as they are available. Littles must be at least eight years old to participate.
Bigs and Littles only spend time together at BBBS Sports Buddies events or at BBBS agency-sponsored activities. The Little's family is responsible for coordinating transportation to and from activities, and the BBBS Program Coordinator will conduct all scheduling and communication between the Big, Little and Little's family. Activities will primarily take place in the St. Cloud/Sauk Rapids/Sartell/Waite Park area. Bigs in this program must be 18 or older, and matches make a six-month commitment with the option to continue their match after the six-month mark.
