PANTHERS AFTERSCHOOL SPORTS K-5
The K-5 after-school athletics program is focused on developing each student's skills by teaching them the fundamental requirements of each sport. They have the opportunity of learning the proper way to kick, dribble or pass a ball before bringing any additional elements such as competitive games. The goal is that all students will have a strong foundation in their selected sport. Each season for the afterschool sports program endures for six weeks. After each season, the student-athlete has the opportunity to register in another sport. The registration link is under the School Shop, and once the scholar is written, they will be added to the roster. The After School Program offers the following sports:

SPORTS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
What documents are required for Sports?
We will need a sports physical. An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is not mandatory but is highly encouraged and will be as recommended by your care provider. Parents are encouraged to request sports physical and the waivers forms through the school office or Athletic Department if your scholar plans to try out for any sports.
Can I get a discount if my scholar participates in different sports?
As much as we would like to do that, each sport has its costs, and the sports fee is based on that.
Can I get a discount if I have siblings on the same team?
The way the system is configured, it won’t allow any type of discount. But parents with specific situations must address their questions to the School Principal.
Is there any travel team opportunity for my student-athlete?
Our coaches compete in travel teams after the school season. The student will have the opportunity to continue to develop their game year-round with a discounted option. For travel team options, please reach out to the Athletic Director.
