FLAIM Sports Teams
If you are interested in having your kids participate in team with other FLAIM students, FLAIM parents are encouraged to organize and coach their own teams for a sport of their choosing, including, but not limited to, baseball, football, soccer and basketball. Since 2105, FLAIM parents have been organizing little league baseball teams of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds at the Paula G. Manship YMCA. It was a blast and allowed the kids an opportunity to bond outside of campus. In 2016, with the help of the FLAIM Men's Club, parents are coaching for all age groups!! Depending on interest, we can arrange teams for baseball, soccer, basketball and football at the Y. If you are interested in starting a team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of students in your class.
If your child is interested in cheerleading and tumbling, check out BR Cheer Academy. For more information, visit their website.
