After-School Options

 

BASKETBALL

Basketball will focus on fundamental skills such as ball handling, passing, shooting, and defense, rebounding, and pivoting. Teamwork will also be a focus and students will target communication, problem-solving skills, and peer support.  High school students only.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

On Tuesdays, students will visit our friendly neighbor Carousel Kids at St. Philip to engage in reading, art and games with preschool students.

CRAFT/PUZZLE CLUB

Are you looking to exercise the right side of your brain? Crafts and puzzles are a fun and creative outlet.  There will be a variety of puzzles to choose from in addition to an exciting craft every week.  Students will have a choice to collaborate on a puzzle or craft.

CREW

Students are encouraged to get on the water at the Greenwich Water Club for one of the few activities where you can work all major muscle groups while benefiting from a great aerobic workout. Students will learn various skills such as proper form, breathing techniques, and teamwork. Transportation to Greenwich Water Club is the responsibility of our parent.

DANCE

Dancing is a part of every culture throughout history, and it allows people to communicate without using words.  Our goal in the dance club is to practice ways to stay fit, listen to some good music, and learn some ways to groove!  We will start every class with stretching and a warm up, then move into line dances where we will choreograph our own dances, and then end with a cool down.  Just dance!

DISC GOLF/FRISBEE GAMES

Disc Golf and Frisbee Games allow for a non-contact sport with focus on visual, spatial skills and fun.

FENCING

Join your fellow students with a Coach from New Amsterdam Fencing Academy and learn or continue working on your fencing skills.
