The Cardinal Kids Club is a program sponsored by the Saginaw Valley State University Department of Athletics that launched on August 1, 2009.  The intent of the program is to bring the families with young children in the Great Lakes Bay Region to the campus of SVSU to engage in the Cardinal Athletics experience.  Members will be exposed to not only the athletic contests and discounts on camps, but they will also have opportunities to directly interact with athletes, coaches and the Cardinal mascot throughout the year in a variety of capacities.
