Rink Link – After School Program

Shared experiences lead to lasting friendships



Social development is an important part of the role we play in each child’s life. Whether it’s after school or during one of our camps, our programs give kids a chance to interact in fun, stress-free and collaborative environments. Memory making occurs daily as kids share experiences, and laughter is sure to erupt during action-packed activities

Digging a little deeper to find those ambitions, traits and talents



Forming friendships and tackling challenges together are only part of the equation to becoming more confident. Opportunity and encouragement play major roles, too. That’s why our engaged teachers inspire kids to explore unchartered territories like sports, art, drama, science, technology, cooking and more.

Finding a passion and unearthing an unknown talent go a long way in building a kid’s sense of self-worth – assuring them they are truly enough, and their potential greatness knows no bounds!

Not Your Average After School Program

Smoky Mountain Sk8way has gained experience over the years by providing a fun and popular summer camp program for area kids. We have now taken that knowledge and experience to bring you the same in an After School Program where children gain new skills in a variety of areas while learning through play. Our goal is to compliment the everyday school academics with an after school program that supports and encourages the development of confidence, independence, and responsibility. The program focuses on social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development by offering structured activities, clubs, and free choice activities. There are no additional fees for any structured lesson or activity- your child’s enrollment fee covers everything we have to offer!
Our program begins when the children arrive after school and runs until 6pm each evening. The School bus picks up and drops off right at our front door. Children will have their snack and time for homework, reading, or tutoring. Free play, open skating and structured activities are scheduled throughout the rest of the day. We have also invited special guest to come teach a variety of informative and fun classes.

Our many activities may include (but not limited to):

  • Roller Skating
