Black Hawks form "Bench Buddies" with area kids


On Friday and Saturday nights in the winter, the Waterloo Black Hawks are heroes on the ice in the Cedar Valley, but on Mondays, they become like big brothers to a group of grade school boys.

 The Black Hawks have partnered up with the Waterloo Boys and Girls club to form "Bench Buddies". This is the second year for the mentor program  One Monday, the game is indoor hockey.

While two weeks later it was flag football. Whatever the sport you can bet anytime these guys get together, there will be lots of physical activity.

Toronto native and Black Hawk Captain Aaron Pierce says Bench Buddies allows him and his teammates to connect with the community.
