The Elementary School Program offers a variety of exciting sports activities to our young students. Now it is up to YOU to sign up your children to the Elementary Sports After School (ESAS). We hope your children enjoy the activities!

The support and cooperation of the parents is essential for this program to continue. The program will continue to run with the following parameters for the majority of the activities.

Young students (JK, KG) will wait at the classrooms to be picked up by the instructors to head out to their activity facility. Other students must walk to the designated meeting place prior to the beginning of the activity. Parents must pick up their children from the parking lot at 17:00.
