Playgrounds are a place where children can come together to play, yell, swing, imagine. They are places where life lessons are learned – challenge, risk, cooperation and conflict resolution. Yet for too many families, playgrounds have become inaccessible due to physical limitations. My Place is inclusive, specially designed to welcome all individuals and families regardless of ability. “My Place” includes all the features of a traditional playground – swings, a merry-go-round, climbing equipment and some features very unique to the Historic Triangle area. At My Place, all children play together – without bounds or judgments. Come visit My Place, located adjacent to the James City/Williamsburg Community Center, 5301 Longhill Road. My Place is a privatelyfunded project completed by the Leadership Historic Triangle Class of 2009. To learn more, visit http://myplaceplayground.camp9.org.

There are now individual, two-week registration periods (periods below). Once you have successfully passed a class, you can register for the next level during the open registration periods listed below. You can register at the community centers or online at www.jccEgov.com/recreation: 1/4-1/16 2/8-2/27 3/22-4/10 5/3-5/22 Free Swim Evaluations If you are new to JCC and the American Red Cross Learn to Swim program, we will be offering free swim evaluations on the follow evenings during the registration periods. You may stop by the JCWCC anytime during the two hour period: W 1/13 4:30-6:30pm Free 101000-A W 2/24 4:30-6:30pm Free 102000-A W 4/7 4:30-6:30pm Free 104000-A W 5/19 4:30-6:30pm Free 105000-A Frequently Asked Questions 1) If I’m new to the area or this will be the first time my child and/or I will take swimming lessons, how will I know what swim lesson level to register for? There are FREE swim evaluations for children and adults before the start of every swim lesson registration period. During these evaluations, trained aquatic instructors can assess the participant’s swimming skill and provide feedback on the best swim level. 2) What happens if a swim class gets cancelled? Generally, a make-up class will be added, extending the session as many days as needed. Make up sessions will be conducted on the same day of the week and time as the normally scheduled class. However, there will be times when there aren’t enough days to make up swim lessons. In these instances a $5 refund will be provided each participant for each class cancelled. James City County Parks and Recreation 29 Winter/Spring 2010 Aquatics The Class Cancellation policy is listed in the back of this brochure. 3) Why are swim classes at an indoor pool cancelled for thunder and lightning? Although the indoor pool is grounded, it still runs the chance of being struck by lightning. This cancellation policy was created as a safety precaution for all aquatic participants. 4) How will I know if my child should be registered for Level 1 or Level 2 swim lessons? The easiest way to determine the appropriate level is to gauge your child’s comfort in the water. If your child is comfortable in the water and will submerge their face, they should be registered for Level 2. If your child is timid in or near the water and is not comfortable submerging their face, nose or eyes in water, register them for Level 1. 5) How many participants are there in a group swimming class? In Swim Levels 1-5, there’s a maximum of 7 participants. Level 6 Rec Racers Fitness Swimmer has a maximum of 25 participants. In Parent and Child Aquatics Level A and Child Aquatics Level B, there’s a maximum of 15 participants. 6) How long are swim classes? Parent and Child Aquatics classes are 30 minutes. All other swim classes are 45 minutes. 7) Do I have to stay on the pool deck while my child is taking lessons? If your child is enrolled in any swim lesson under Level 4, you must stay on the pool deck during lessons. Children in lessons under Level 4 have not yet developed the skills and endurance needed to pass the facility’s swim test, and therefore cannot swim without a parent present. 8) Can I drop my child off for swim class and then pick them up when it is finished? No, you must be in the facility while your child is participating in swim classes. If your child is in a swim lesson under Level 4, you must be on the pool deck. 9) Can we come in early or stay after class and swim? Yes, if your child has passed the swim test and has a current membership. However, keep in mind space is limited during classes. 30 Winter/Spring 2010 10) Can someone other than a parent bring my child to class? Yes, but they must follow the same rules and stay on the pool deck with the child at all times. 11) If my child misses a class session, can they attend another class/another time? Because each class is based on size and ability, we cannot make individual accommodations. 12) How old must a child be to start swimming lessons? Participants must be at least six months old to register for Parent and Child Aquatics. 13) What is the temperature of the water? The temperature of the water is 84 degrees. 14) How quickly should my child advance through the various levels? Keep in mind that every child learns and advances at his/her own pace. Try not to compare your child to other members of the class; they will progress as they are ready. 15) What should I do if the class I need is full or if there are not enough participants enrolled? If a class is full, please sign up for the waiting list of ONLY the class in which you’re interested. The Aquatic Program Coordinator will contact you if there are openings available. Register early as classes fill up fast! Classes that have not met minimum enrollment will be cancelled the Friday before they are scheduled to start. 16) What if my child is registered for the wrong level? Be sure to read the class descriptions carefully. If a child is signed up for the incorrect class level, there is no guarantee that the child will be transferred to the correct class level once class begins. Children will only be transferred to the correct class level if there is space available in the class. If there is no space in the correct class level, a refund will be issued to the household. 17) What level should I register for if my child has taken a session off? It’s recommended that they repeat the most recent class they have passed or be evaluated on a free swim evaluation day. 18) Why should I add my child on a wait list? If your child is placed on a “wait list” when a class is full, then we will try to accommodate those waiting to enroll as soon as possible. James City County Parks and Recreation www.jccEgov.com/recreation Child Private Lessons (ages 5-18) – for swimmers who need a one-on-one environment for learning Classes will consist of 30 minutes of individual instruction based on the child’s specific needs. Lessons are taught based on instructor availability. To schedule a class, call the Aquatic Program Coordinator at 259-4185. Cancellations and postponements require 24-hour notice to avoid being charged for the scheduled class, except in the case of an emergency.

On average, participants repeat each level two to three times before becoming proficient in the required skills. This is very important for successful completion of each level. The ages on all swimming levels after Child Aquatics are 5 and older. If a child is four years old and has successfully completed Child Aquatics, they may be registered for American Red Cross Levels 1 or 2. Parent and Child Aquatics (ages 6 months - 3 years) It is never too early to start your child with swim lessons. Parent and Child Aquatics is an introduction to the water for young children and a water safety course for parents. Parents must be in the water with the child as it helps to develop swimming readiness by teaching children how to have fun in the water. The goal is to provide experiences and activities for parents and children to learn how to feel comfortable in the water and learn about choosing and using life jackets. Non-toilet trained children must wear a swim diaper. Class size is limited to a max. 15 children.

The Trail won in the 2008 Best New Greenway, Blueway or Trail category for populations between 50,000-100,000. The award was presented in September during the 55th Annual VRPS Conference held in Roanoke. Housed in the County’s historic Freedom Park, the Loop C Mountain Bike Trail system was designed for bikers of all abilities. However, the trail system does boast some 20 technical trail features to challenge even the most experienced riders. Local members of the Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association (EVMA) (pictured below) constructed the 3.22-mile Loop C, donating more than 950 volunteer hours for the layout, design and construction of the project. Parks and Recreation and EVMA worked together and completed Loop C in less than six months from start to finish. Loop C was constructed at no cost to County citizens. Winners were judged by a jury of their peers for demonstrated excellence in their entry areas. Eagle Scout Project a Win, Win “Do a good turn daily” is one of several Boy Scout mottos. Patrick Corbett, Life Scout with Boy Scout Troop #102, took the slogan to heart as he completed his Eagle Scout Project at Jamestown Beach Campground. His project: refurbish picnic tables. Patrick recruited 42 volunteers that included his troop and many parents. They gave some 158 hours of their time and energy to help complete his project in late September and early October. They sorted through more than 200 picnic tables and separated them into piles – the good, the can-be-fixed, and the cannotbe-fixed. From there, they refurbished 106 tables which will be distributed among County parks. And the County saved money too. Alex Holloway, Park Operations Coordinator, noted this project, valued at more than $4,800 in labor costs alone, saved the County maintenance costs, and future cost in purchasing new picnic tables and cleaning up the site. This was definitely a win-win for the County and Patrick, who is working his way to the final ranking of Eagle Scout. For general information on County parks, or if you’re interested in volunteering in a County park, visit www.jccEgov.com/recreation or call 259-5403. EVMA members include experienced trail designers and others professionally trained in mountain bike trail construction. More than 100 picnics tables were refurbished during the Eagle Scout project, and the tables will be relocated to other County parks.
