2021 Buddy-Mentor Program

The Buddy-Mentor Program returns this spring.  A younger player will be paired up with an older player for the season.  The younger player will have someone to ask advice from while the older player has an opportunity to be an example.  The Buddy-Mentor list will be posted here shortly after all of the teams are selected for the season.

Buddy = Listed First In Alphabetical Order / Mentor Is Listed Second.   What Team Is Your Buddy Or Mentor On? Team Rosters Can Be Found On This Website.

  • Mentors need to reach out to their buddies.  Mentors can: 1) Watch their buddy practice, 2) Watch their buddy play, 3) Offer advice or 4) Share their experiences (of being in the program).   Some first year players are buddies.

One of the staples of our organization is never turning away a child or her family because of financial concerns.  COVID-19 has put a few of our families in tough spots which in turn has increased the requests for scholarships.  There is no set goal for our program as donations and requests for scholarships are both rolling processes.  If you would like to donate any amount please use the link below.  You or your business will receive a thank you donation letter from our program which you can use for tax purposes.  Make any checks out to: WS Stealers Girls Basketball / PO Box 5213 / Winston-Salem, NC 27113-5213.  You can also contact Coach Robinson directly at to donate.  See below to learn about our 25 for 25 program.
