Little Buddies

Kingsgate Gators Buddy Sign-Up: Sign-up Form

The purpose of the Kingsgate Gators Big/Little Buddy Program is to help younger swimmers transition into becoming Gators and to help them and their parents navigate swim meets. The program also fosters team spirit, family and camaraderie by connecting the older swimmers with the younger ones.

Big Buddies are generally 12 & Olders. Little Buddies are 10 & Unders, with a strong emphasis on 8 & Unders or first-year swimmers. Our goal is to have all Little Buddies assisted by Big Buddies at swim meets.

We will try to have our Buddies matched prior to the Kingsgate Invitational (week before competition begins), so that everyone gets practice at what the Buddy system entails. Both Buddies will be notified of the pairings.

Responsibilities For Big Buddies:

Meet Little Buddy and welcome them to the Gators

Greet Little Buddy at first home and away meets

Get Little Buddy ready for each race (brings them to the blocks to stage)


BONUS: Sharpie Art! Determine Little Buddy events and heats, and write that info on Little Buddy's arm (Sharpies will be provided)

(If the Big Buddy is unable to attend a certain meet, they are encouraged to find a sub and let the Little Buddy know about the change.)

Responsibilities For Little Buddies:

Have fun!!!

CHEER on your Big Buddy when they swim!
