Our second annual Big Blue Breakfast, benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s Athletics Department, was held on Friday, November 15th. Community members from around San Diego county gathered in our Griset Clubhouse Gym in Encinitas to celebrate and raise funds for our youth sports programs.

Guest Speaker Coach John Kentera spoke on the importance of mentoring our youth and the personal impact Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito had on his own life, athletics and career trajectory. Speaking specifically on the impact of his former mentors like Greg Nelson and Doug Hall, as well as his time as Youth of the Year, on his success.

“I have nothing but great memories. I don’t know where I would have been…I don’t think the Boys & Girls Club saved my life but it definitely kept me on a tremendous path during my lifetime.”

Youth of the Year Cole Snider also provided testimony to the importance of Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s athletics programs on his life and the lives of his peers.
