Athletics

Our Philosophy

Our athletic programs emphasize quality over quantity where all children have an equal opportunity to learn and develop. This is done in a safe, social and fun environment to help children reach their potential.

Our coaching staff is committed to incorporating sportsmanship, teamwork, and good health into the teaching of the individual sports skills. Limited enrollment in all programs and a low instructor to student ratio provides a safe environment and results in learning excellence.

Please contact our office at (920) 929-1155 with any new suggestions you may have for athletic programming.

Parents, please record your course on your calendar! Refunds are given up to one week before the first class session and include a $10 cancellation fee.
