Amazing Athletes uses sports as a catalyst to meet the needs of the whole child through fitness classes designed to advance each child’s individual motor-skills and inspire future participation in physical activity.

Interactive, one-hour after school science programs are themed around particular areas of science and include such topics as rocketry, magnets, polymers, and even the science of toys. In each class, children are encouraged to give science a try and build their very own model rockets, periscopes, Mad Science putty, and more. Children even get to take home their science experiment to show Mom and Dad!
Watch Me Draw
Students learn to draw some of their favorite characters by learning to draw basic shapes that they can identify in their surroundings. With these fundamental concepts, students can extract the basic shapes out of something they see and ultimately create complex drawings on their own.
Watch Me Sculpt
Watch Me Sculpt is an exciting after-school program that teaches students to learn the art of sculpting while inconspicuously developing their fine motor coordination. Students work with Super Sculpey, the same clay used by animation studios, jewelry makers and professional doll makers. Projects range from jewelry and fun character figurines to magic wands and pencil toppers.
