Amazing Athletes:
Amazing Athletes is the leading youth multi-sport enrichment program in the country with franchises all over the U.S. and even some as far away as Dubai. Although we're part of a huge organization, owners Edward and Kelsie are both Colorado natives who have grown up here in Fort Collins Colorado. We purchased the franchise in March from previous owner Logan Hastings who had been running Amazing Athletes for ten years in Northern Colorado and was ready to move on to her next business endeavor. Edward and Kelsie have three young children of their own and both have a passion for working with kids and a vision of making a positive impact in our communities here in Northern Colorado.
 
Artisan You is a Paint Your Own Pottery Studio located in Loveland, CO. Janna Flores is one of the owners of Artisan You, and enjoys painting pottery, working with fused glass, and her favorite medium, wet clay.
Preschool: Tuesdays - Art in preschool is a time to explore! This class will involve painting pottery, creating with clay, canvas painting, and mixed media art. Kids will be taught basic skills, such as how to hold a paintbrush properly. They will also learn beginning clay skills. Mixed media art is also a great way to hone scissors skills. Some artwork in this class will be kiln fired. Those pieces will be brought back to our studio and returned the following week.
K-2nd Grade: Wednesdays - Kids will learn basic foundation art skills in the class, along with fun techniques! This class will cover pottery painting, glass fusing, making things with clay, and mixed media projects. Some projects will require kiln firing and will be brought back to our studio and returned the next week.
3rd-5th Grade: Thursdays - Students will learn the fundamentals of clay hand building in this class. We will progress from basic pinch pots to more advanced projects. All projects will require kiln firing, they will be taken to our studio, and then returned the following week. Most projects will be kiln fired twice, once after being created, then again after being painted.
 
Chessmates began in Fort Collins Colorado in 2008 and now teaches over 1000 students annually. As a Colorado Chess Club, Chessmates provides camps, tournaments, private lessons, chess clubs, and online chess instruction in Fort Collins Colorado.
Chessmates Club includes a lesson at the start of each club, activities to reinforce the tactic learned, and time to play against other students in the club. Lessons cover basic rules, opening strategies, tactics, endgames, tournament rules, and more. All skill levels are welcome. Come learn to love the wonderful game of chess!
 
We provide your child(ren) with useful and meaningful Spanish language experiences in an anxiety-free, fun-filled environment by stimulating their interest in other cultures. Mrs. Acevedo and Mrs. Mrs. Mendoza have more than ten years of experience teaching children in different environments, working with toddlers, preschoolers, K-12 and adults.  
Club Amigos gives children the opportunity to learn Spanish and practice what they have learned in school through super fun activities, games and experiences all in Spanish.
 
Family Balance Yoga:
We have been providing fun yoga classes for kids and families since 2014. FBY is owned and operated by a PSD teacher who loves kids, teaching, AND yoga. Your child can come "zen out" after school! We'll be stretching, strengthening, breathing, posing and playing yoga games to promote great health, relaxation, coordination, anxiety-reduction, and most of all-FUN! If your child is craving movement and exercise without the competition, this is the class for them.
 
We are an outreach center through the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University. Our mission is to inspire and educate people to connect with and become stewards of our natural world. Our staff are undergraduate students at CSU interested in pursuing careers in environmental education.  Students will explore water, a key aspect of life!
 
Our Mission it to provide Taekwondo instruction allowing students to develop leadership and teamwork skills using equitable practices. Jenny and Jiri have been teaching this afterschool program since 2018 and it is the highlight of their week. Outside of teaching Taekwondo, Jenny works full-time at CSU and Jiri is a Park Ranger for Colorado Parks and Wildlife Services.
Students can expect to learn Olympic-style Taekwondo also known as World Federation Taekwondo. Our classes look different each day, so one day you can expect an obstacle course or balancing games and the next day we may be sparring or practicing kicking and punching. We want students to not only learn the Taekwondo curriculum but to have fun while doing it. We have students taking part for a variety reasons, some are focused on getting their black belt, or competing in tournaments, while others just want to have a fun time with their friends. We adapt to meet the different needs of each child to help them reach their goals.
 
At Play-Well TEKnologies, we are dedicated to teaching STEAM through play and interaction with LEGO. Our programs and curriculum are designed by a specified curriculum team who are dedicated to creating projects that are engaging, challenging, and provide tools to learn real- world concepts. Our engineering-based programs are set up to introduce children grades preK-8 to new terms and provide understanding of those terms through application to the building process as well as the world they already know. Our programs are centered around LEGO building and engineering/STEM concepts. Each day is different and designed to teach the students something new through building a related car, train, animal, etc and the mechanisms required for it. Students work individually, in teams, and as a group throughout the sessions. A short discussion and demonstration of the days project starts each meeting. Instructors will relate the project to the “real world” and discuss its purpose to the community.
