After School Program
Flexible programs to fit your busy distanced learning schedule.
Our COVID-FREE 10-weeks of summer golf camps gave us the confidence to bring this program to you.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
This program is designed to provide after school care for school-aged children (ages 6-15) in a safe, fun environment. As students begin back in a hybrid/online learning model we have put together a version of our Summer Golf Camps that accommodate their needs and provide a safe experience for everyone. We want children outside, away from books/screens, and interacting with other kids SAFELY.
Monday - Friday, 1pm - 5:30pm
*Will vary based on the day of the week and school district.

2020 After School Program
Kids will go through a series of skill-based games where they will learn the fundamentals of golf. Similar to our Summer Golf Camps, kids will have the opportunity to improve their game through fun putting drills, chipping games and hitting balls at the driving range. On-course play will be allowed for more advanced golfers or children who want to try golfing on the course. Sanitized equipment will be provided or you can bring your own.
Youth Movement Programs
With Physical Education being eliminated or cut back dramatically, we are providing an alternative for children after their online/hybrid days. We have developed two Youth Movement Programs that introduce the foundation of movement and teamwork through structure games and activities. Kids will be exposed to a fun and interactive environment that will teach them social skills and the benefits of being physically active.
Quiet Homework Space
We understand children will have homework throughout the week. We will be providing a quiet homework space for kids who need to study, work on homework, read a book or just take a break. Our homework space will be available for use at all times throughout the program with staff supervision.
Arts & Crafts
We aim to make arts & crafts fun and engaging for all ages. With plenty of ideas, kids can get creative and bring their art to life! If you wish to bring other items (games, arts/crafts, science projects, etc.) to the program, please let us know so we can approve them beforehand. We will provide all necessary supplies and equipment.
Summitpointe Golf Club have many trails and walking areas. Kids will be taken on short nature walks around the surrounding trails to stay active and promote physical fitness. We encourage kids to bring their phones so pictures/videos can be taken. We’ll explore different ways to enhance their photographs and videos!

Kids will have the opportunity to take part in every activity that we provide. Therefore, trying new activities that are both fun and engaging, will be easy! Since kids will be in the same groups throughout the week, we will encourage team building and communication skills. Due to school’s transitioning to an online/hybrid curriculum, students will lose that social aspect from not being with other kids. We want to build your child’s confidence up!! With our After-School programs, we will provide a safe place where kids can socialize, interact and still learn how to work together.
If your child will need care before the program starts or after it ends – we are here to help! We will have staff on hand to watch your child. Before or Aftercare will cost $30/hour and will be paid out directly to the staff member. Please contact Scott Stevens at [email protected]. If no one can be reached and the staff member stays with your child, we will have a late charge of $1 per minute per child. (We can change this depending on how much you would like to charge.)

Kids will throw, kick, jump, roll, and run, through structured games and activities to test their ABC’s of movement (agility, balance, and coordination). In this group environment, kids will also develop teamwork and social skills and learn how to play with good sportsmanship. Movement tests will also be administered to test your child’s progress during this developmental stage in their life.
Youth Movement (ages 9-14)
This class incorporates all the aspects of the Youth Development class and introduces bodyweight training and flexibility. Kids will be exposed to a fun and interactive environment that will teach them the benefits of being physically active. Athletic movements will be integrated into each class to start developing speed and power to help create well-rounded individuals.
