BECOME A LIL WEDGER
OUR BUDDY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The Lil Wedger Program is our new buddy mentor program for players 12 & under. This program is to provide youth players who have little to no experience an opportunity to receive private training from our Mentor Players. Every training session will be under the direct supervision of the program director, Alyssa Lee.
Lil Wedgers will get the opportunity to receive personal training from their Mentor Player in all basic skills at an affordable price.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who are Mentor Players?
Mentor Players are current West Edge players who are 16-18 years old.
Are Mentor Players qualified to be training?
All Mentor Players will have applied and been approved by the program director. Each Mentor Player is required to participate in an orientation and training program before they are matched with their very own Lil Wedger. Our goal is provide our older players the opportunity to share their knowledge and become a "buddy" and mentor for new volleyball athletes!
How are Mentor Players and Lil Wedgers matched?
Each Lil Wedger will be asked a series of questions upon registration and based on their answers, we will personally match them with a Mentor Player whom we think will be able to provide the best training experience based on personality and learning/teaching preference. Preference for a female or male, older or younger, mentor? We'll be sure to cater to the Lil Wedgers preferences and comfort levels.
What if I've been matched with a Mentor Player but don't like him/her?
No worries! We ask that every Lil Wedger works with their Mentor Player for at least 3 sessions before requesting a change. If after three sessions the Lil Wedger and Mentor Player don't seem to mesh, we can re-match them with another.
