UWaterloo Warriors “Team-Up” with local schools

Positive messages from positive role models. This is the key idea around which the Team-Up program, sponsored in part by the Education Credit Union, is based. Team-Up brings Varsity Student-Athletes to schools where they speak to classes or teams about topics such as goal setting, having positive role models and being a team player. With over 52 schools, both elementary and secondary, and over 5,500 individuals participating last year in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, this year’s Team-Up school outreach program looks to reach even more students with their positive message that focuses around the Six Keys to Success.
