FernLeaf After School Theater Program
FernLeaf  Athletics Soccer Team


FernLeaf is a part of our local Hospitality League, which creates a league for local private and charter schools to compete against each other in grades 5-8.


This league is a great place for students who have never participated in organized sports as well as those with experience. The focus is on creating a space for students to learn about athletic skills, to build leadership and team-building skills, to gain confidence in themselves, to participate in friendly competitions and, most importantly, to have fun.


High school students participate in an increasingly competitive league with more rigorous practice schedules.  Teams are no longer co-ed.

FernLeaf also has Adventure Sports offerings.

Soccer Shots at FernLeaf After School




Mondays 3:00 - 3:45 PM

Grades: K - 2nd

8/22/22 - 10/17/22

Soccer Shots is an introductory soccer program for Kindergarten - 2nd Grade students.  Our premier program is an introduction to soccer that focuses on fun, character development and of course, soccer – in that order. This is not a competitive league. We introduce soccer through building skills each week, but we focus on building children, not the next superstar. This age group is 45 minutes (instead of our normal 30 for ages 2-5) so we can put into practice the skills we have learned with at least 15 minutes of scrimmage time.

Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and help them learn to lead and to be strong team members.
