ATHLETICS & ADVENTURE SPORTS

FernLeaf students have the opportunity to participate in after school athletics & adventure sports

 

FernLeaf is a part of our local Hospitality League, which creates an athletic league for local private and charter schools to compete against each other.

FernLeaf also offers Adventure Sports offerings allowing our students the opportunity to learn a sport that takes advantage of the natural beauty of western North Carolina and to learn a life-long skill.

Canoe Repair: Mondays 3:00 - 4:15 PM

Do you enjoy working with your hands? Taking something broken that would otherwise be thrown away and restoring it back to working order? Hanging out with friends? Join the canoe repair club, where we bring donated canoes back to life and build a fleet for future FernLeaf programs! Students will work in pairs to diagnose and repair canoes. Depending on the canoe, students will learn how to work with and repair ABS plastic, fiberglass, wood, and aluminum. Students will work with various tools (plastic welding, sanding, cutting, fiberglassing and more) and materials to address different problems canoes might have. All program costs will go towards materials for repair. The work students do will be the start of the FernLeaf Floatilla and the now restored canoes will go on to serve future FernLeaf students & programs!
