Big Sisters and Little Sisters

"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth." -- Muhammad Ali

Since the girls at Southeastern Gymnastics spend so much time together, everyone becomes sort of like family. The Big and Little Sisters program is designed to bring the girls closer together, and let them get to know each other better. The girls in the upper levels at the gym have worked hard to get there, and they get the privilege of being a role model to the younger girls. The younger girls will benefit from getting to know these dedicated gymnasts and seeing their determination and success.

This program is NOT about spending money on gifts or committing substantial amounts of time -- it is primarily to let the girls encourage each other and promote team spirit. A simple high five at the gym, note of encouragement or just a smile to their "sisters" can go a long way.

The list below is broken up into Big Sister, Little Sister and Little, Little Sister. The numbers of girls at the gym and in each level fluctuate greatly. Also, the ages in each level can be quite a range, so dividing these up was not an exact science. 

Here's an example of how this works: (using the first set of names on the list) Abby is the Big Sister to Cassidy. Cassidy is the Big Sister to Madeline. There is no specific rule about how the girls should interact - if Abby wants to write a note of encouragement to Cassidy, that's great. If she also wants to do the same to Madeline, that's also great. Or maybe Cassidy makes sure to watch Madeline at her next meet, and cheer for her. 

Please help promote team spirit and unity by encouraging your daughter to be a good sport about this program. The first step towards this is to be positive about who your daughter is paired with. This is not necessarily a life-long match, we expect to keep these pairings tentatively through the end of summer 2012.
