Pen Pal Program 

Through this K-8th grade program, an Arizona Athletics student-athlete will correspond with your classroom during the course of one school semester. Students will gain the opportunity to develop a connection with an older, positive role model while improving their reading and writing skills. This is also a great experience to promote fitness, emphasize the importance of academic success and help students create goals of higher education.

S'cool Cats

S'cool Cats is a program focused on relationships, so we can support our community as they support our teams and players. This program pairs our teams with local elementary and middle schools for an entire school year. Throughout the year, student-athletes and coaches make contact with the schools following a standard curriculum. The participants are invited to campus for a home match or scrimmage during the team's season to cheer on the student-athletes. S'cool Cats develops personal relationships between the community and the athletics department while promoting life skills, healthy lifestyles, sportsmanship and service. 

Requirements for participating schools include:

*Must be within a 30 minute driving distance according to Google Maps.
*Must be an elementary or middle school. No students can be considered potential recruits. NOTE that Men's Basketball cannot be paired with middle schools.
*Must distribute and collect media release forms for all students involved in the Cats in the Community program.Photos will be used for articles and promotions for Arizona Athletics community service program.
