After-School Activities Program
Because your child's health is as important as your own.
We are now accepting enrollment in our new After-School Activities Program (ASAP) here at CHRISTUS HWC. ASAP is designed to address multiple aspects of continued education based around the STEAM educational learning system. The STEAM learning system approaches practical science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics context to make a connection between school, community, and future interests for our kids. This after-school program will include enhancing creative think skills, developing social skills, imagination, physical activity, and a period to review homework!
Becoming an ASAP Member
Any youth between 5 years old (Kindergarten) to 12 years old (7th grade) grade are eligible to become a ASAP Member. Each ASAP Member will fill out an application and Fitness Screening Questionnaire prior to joining. Children under 7 years old will require a swim test. Upon acceptance, the ASAP member will receive a new membership card and have his/her picture taken for the personal account.
The ASAP Difference
The After-School Activities Program Members will be given limited access to the facility through participation in age-specific group fitness classes or extracurricular clubs. Each group fitness class is taught by a certified personal trainer or group fitness instructor to encourage proper technique and help with injury prevention.
Our after-school program serves youth ages 5 to 12 years old and encompass a broad range of focus areas including academic support, mentoring, youth development, arts, and sports and recreation. The activities in which youth engage while outside of school hours are critical to their development, highlighting the need for quality afterschool programs that the CHRISTUS HWC can provide. Our high quality afterschool programs generate positive outcomes for youth including improved academic performance, classroom behavior, and health and nutrition.
ASAP Members will be divided into two groups, ages 7 to 10 and 11 to 13 to ensure that the teachings and activities are engaging and appealing to the participants.
