Give & Go Mentoring Program

Goals of the program are to:

  • Create an interconnected Eden Prairie Girls’ basketball community by promoting mentoring relationships between high school players and girls in the youth basketball program
  • Build leadership skills amongst the high school players as they mentor and support younger basketball players
  • Provide youth basketball players with positive role models in their mentors 
  • Create enthusiasm and community-wide support for Eden Prairie girls’ basketball

How does it work:

  • In-House and Travel Teams will be paired with a high school mentor
  • Mentors will attend a few practices and games
  • Youth players will receive free admission to varsity home games by wearing their basketball uniform or spirit wear
  • Travel teams will be a “Spotlight” team for varsity home games – Sit on the bench during warm-ups and visit the varsity locker-room before the game
  • In House teams will scrimmage during half-time for varsity home games
  • Participate in a community service project with their mentors
