The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are eagerly anticipating the 3rd year of the High School Mentorship Program. This season, 30 high school football teams in Hamilton, Burlington, St. Catharines, Brantford and Guelph will be receiving visits from a Tiger-Cats player.
Each participating high school will be assigned one player that will visit three of their practices throughout September and October. At these practices the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will assist the coaches with drills and provide leadership and character development to the young student athletes.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats believe that there is much more to being a great leader than simply having a great talent. The Coca-Cola Community Captain recognizes exceptional individuals who are selected from our High School Mentorship program and have demonstrated strong leadership on and off the field. These individuals are recognized for being much more than just purely an exceptional football player; they will be recognized on their classroom performance, their community initiatives and their ability to be great leaders and role models.
The Tiger-Cats hope that these players will remain positive role models as they continue to succeed on the field and in the classroom. We hope to lay the foundation of higher expectations for these young men and women. They have a tremendous opportunity to utilize sports to accomplish great things from themselves and, more importantly to impact others through their leadership and service.
In order to be considered to become a Coca-Cola Community Captain, these individuals must maintain a 75% average or higher in all their classes, have performed voluntary community service, and be recognized by both teammates’ and coaches’ as being a positive leader on and off the field.
Winners are recognized during the first quarter of all Ticats home games and are presented with a Coca-Cola Community Captain T-shirt and autographed football.
All High School Mentorship student-athletes are eligible for being the Coca-Cola Community Captains. Nomination forms can only be accepted from high school coaches, principles or teachers.
