Before & After School Care - The iWin Club

Our vision is: To love and care for each child during before and after school care. All of our teachers are well equipped to love and care for your child. Every iWin staff member is fully vetted with a background check, but most importantly vetted to provide the most loving care possible.

Although Riverwalk Academy sponsors the before and after school care program in the morning for Riverwalk students, The iWin Club, LLC is an independent organization.


Band is for 5th, 6th and 7th

Band is every Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:00-4:10 under the direction of Monte Johnston. If you have any questions, you can contact him at

Girls on the Run

3rd – 5th Grade

Girls on the Run will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 PM – 4:45 PM.  This season we have three coaches for Girls on the Run. Melissa Maloney will be overseeing the program.  She has coached for 8 seasons.  Her daughter Sarah goes to Riverwalk and they are really looking forward to Melissa’s 9th season with Riverwalk this year! The goal is to keep the girls engaged, moving, have fun, and to be inspired. This will be Stacy Spinatto’s first season to coach. Her daughter Isabella is looking forward to running her third 5k this year. Stacy has been a substitute teacher at Crowders Creek.  Julia Fichera will also be a first-time coach this season. She does not have a daughter in the program, however, she does have two children that go to Riverwalk.   We are looking forward to a great Girls On The Run season!If you need more information, you can contact Melissa Maloney at missiemaloney@gmail.comOver a period of 10 weeks, girls in the 3rd through 5th grade participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique. The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development.  Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age.  They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them.  Then, we look at the importance of team work and healthy relationships.  And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world.Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health.  At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event.  This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum.  Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.  Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

Let Me Run


Let Me Run is a nonprofit holistic health program for 4th through 8th grade boys. Using running as the vehicle to inspire, teach and reach boys, our comprehensive curriculum breaks down destructive male stereotypes that often stand in the way of positive futures for boys. Twice a week for seven weeks, our trained coaches guide teams of six to fourteen boys through the program, designed to amplify confidence, self-expression, and respect for others. Each fall and spring season culminates in a 5K race that celebrates the boys’ emotional, social and physical growth.

Let Me Run coaches guide the boys through lessons about wellness and well being, like respect, positive competition, and nutrition. Our lesson plans, including “Real Men Show their Feelings, Everyday Heroes, and Getting to Know You,” prepare boys for the long run by encouraging full expression of their individual feelings. Plus, the coaches instruct boys on proper running form and correct stretching techniques.
