PROGRAMS in PRACTICE
Smiles At Lunch (S.A.L.)
SAL deputies welcomed local elementary students back to school at Isabelle Jackson and Anna Kirchgater by spending the entire lunch period showing students their vehicles, playing games on the playground and raffling off prizes donated by the Bev's Angels Foundation. SAL also brought S.A.L. (Smiles At Lunch) to two North area schools: Antelope Crossing Middle School and D.W. Babcock Elementary. SAL deputies and students enjoy being outdoors and having a good time.
If you're interested in having the opportunity to impact our youth in a positive way through any of our programs, contact Deputy Jessica Hauck at jhauck@sacsheriff.com.

Indoor Soccer
SAL Deputy Kristy Walls is the Assistant Coach for the Avengers, a 12 to 13 years of age indoor soccer team in Sacramento County's District 2. Coach Walls and Head Coach Pete teach these young athletes the skills needed for success both on and off the field. The Avengers have worked hard this season and continue to push forward each Sunday. The Avengers think they are skillful enough to beat a soccer team of SSO officers! Therefore....

Deputy Walls will be organizing an SSO personnel versus the youth in the community indoor soccer tournament on Saturday, March 19th. If you are interested in playing or assisting, you can contact Deputy Kristy Walls at kwalls@sacsheriff.com
Young Marines
SAL Program Director Sergeant Nate Nguyen, Deputy Michael Wojnar and YSU member Tammy Hinds conducted two drill sessions with the Young Marine participants at the Sheriff's Office Headquarters. At each session, the participants engaged in physical fitness training, close order drill (COD), drug demand reduction (DDR) education and continued to study the Young Marine curriculum.
If you are interested in Young Marines or helping out, you can contact Tammy Hinds at thinds@sacsheriff.com
Parkway Little League
SAL deputies and community volunteers took to the softball field (maintenance that is) at Brookfield Drive in Sacramento! SAL deputies have partnered with the Parkway Little League Softball teams to assist them in upgrading and maintaining their softball field and dugouts. Volunteers pulled weeds, raked the field and picked up trash along the field's fence line. This was one of many clean up sessions the field will need assistance with this season. If you are interested in assisting with this endeavor, please reach out to Deputy Kristy Walls. No assistance is too small.
Best Buddies
Best Buddies was held weekly at Antelope High School this past month. This program allows both Antelope High students and deputies to mentor students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Guns and Hoses
48th Annual Pig Bowl
SAL and Sheriff's Toy Project deputies took part in the Kids Safety Fair at the 48th Annual Pig Bowl Guns and Hoses charity football game held at Capital Christian on January 29th. Approximately twenty Florin High School LAW Academy (FLA) students encouraged the young fair participants to be tobacco free by distributing swag such as flashlights, stickers and sunglasses. FLA students were a huge help in pumping up full size footballs which were part of the give away swag! It was the perfect day for football, fun and friendship.
