Las Vegas Wildcat Football Cat Buddy Program

As you look around the stands at any Wildcat football Home game, you may notice a large number of young Wildcat fans in football jerseys.  These youngsters are no ordinary football fans: they are the Cat Buddies of the Las Vegas High School Football Program.  We are entering the 20th season of the Cat Buddy Program and each season brings new success to the program in growth and excitement. The Cat Buddy Program is designed to match up 4th and 5th grade students in our neighboring elementary schools with varsity Wildcat Football players. We want our athletes to accept the responsibility of being positive role models for our community. We also know that our athletes benefit greatly when they have someone who looks up to them and supports them in their athletic efforts.  These special relationships can be a springboard to increase self esteem in both the "Big Cat Buddy" and the "Little Cat Buddy," as well as being a morale booster during the school year for all the participants.

During the football season, our Cat Buddies cheer on their favorite Wildcat football players at all of the home games.  Once a year, the Big Cat Buddies pay back the Cat Buddy support by conducting a fall football clinic. This camp will allow the Cat Buddies to experience football the "Wildcat Way."  The 2015 Cat Buddies saw some great football action at the home games and the Big Cat Buddies had a great time visiting the classrooms of their little buddies!
