FC Wisconsin is based on a “club-first” philosophy. That means that every player is a part of the club before they are a part of any specific team. Part of the implementation of that philosophy is that every player in the club becomes part of a Peer Mentoring Group when they join the club. Each Peer Mentoring Group includes 4-5 players of different ages, and groups can range from players that are 8 to 18 years of age.
The Peer Mentoring Groups are created to help players get to know each other better across age groups, provide role models for young players, provide a resource for players new to the club, and generally promote a “club-first” atmosphere.
