A 10 level program for children ages 5 to 12 years The 10 levels allow for solid progression. Children learn competitive and survival strokes and build their distance and speed while focusing on making safe decisions in, on and around the water. In each level, participants are evaluated based on performance criteria and progress to the next level once all of the criteria have been successfully completed.

Level 1

Swimmers receive an orientation to water and the pool area and work on floats, glides and kicking. Swimmers build their endurance by working on the five metre front swim.

Level 2

Swimmers work on propulsion skills to move through the water and to remain at the surface. Swimmers work on the front swim (5m) and learn about deep-water activities and proper use of a personal flotation device (PFD). Fitness activities include the 10m flutter kick and a 10m distance swim.

Level 3

This level provides an introduction to diving and teaches swimmers how to make wise choices about where and when to swim. Endurance is achieved by building strength in the flutter kick and a 15m swim.

Level 4

This level introduces the front crawl (10m) and back swim with shoulder roll (15m). Swimmers work on kneeling dives, surface support (45 seconds, deep water) and developing a greater sense of self-safety by understanding their own limits. Endurance is built through a 25m swim.

Level 5

This level introduces the back crawl (15m), sculling skills, whip kick on the back, stride dives and treading water. Front crawl increases to 15m. An introduction to safe boating skills is also included. Endurance is developed through a 50m swim.

Level 6

This level refines front crawl with a focus on hand entry and breathing (25m), back crawl with a focus on arm positions and body roll (25m), introduces elementary backstroke (15m), safety on ice and rescue of others with throwing assists. Swimmers demonstrate the front dive and their ability to tread water in deep water for one and a half minutes. Endurance is built through dolphin kick and a 75m swim.

Level 7

This level builds skills and endurance for the front crawl (50m), back crawl (50m), elementary backstroke (25m) and introduces whip kick on the front. Swimmers learn about airway and breathing obstructions, reaching assists and stride entry. Swimming endurance is increased to a 150m swim.

Level 8

This level is an introduction to breaststroke (15m) and feet-first surface dives. Swimmers learn about the dangers of open water, hypothermia, the performance of rescue breathing on children and adults and standing shallow dives. Swimmers participate in timed treading water activities using the eggbeater kick for three minutes to improve their ability to remain at the surface in the event of an unexpected fall into water. Endurance is built on a 300m swim. Front crawl and back crawl distances are increased to 75m each.

Level 9

This level reviews the front crawl (100m), back crawl (100m), elementary backstroke (50m), breaststroke (25m) and encourages swimmers to combine different kicks for fitness (three minutes). They also work on head-first surface dives and learn about wise choices, peer influences and self-rescue from ice. Endurance is built through a 400m swim.

Level 10

This level is a final assessment of the strokes for technique and distance (front crawl 100m, back crawl 100m, elementary backstroke 50m, breaststroke 50m and sidestroke 25m). Swimmers learn about sun safety, rescue of others from ice, and head-first and feet-first surface dives. Endurance is built using the dolphin kick (vertical) and a 500m swim.

Ride for FREE all summer long :) Sorry mom and dad, this is just for the kids! As part of our “best summer ever” plan, Airdrie Transit is offering a free ride for youth (under 18) all summer long! If you’re heading to your summer job, summer camp, hanging out at Genesis Place or taking advantage of the Fit for $5 program with your friends, getting around town just got that much easier. For more information on routes and schedules check out

Caring for our natural environments Weeds thrive on maintained and manicured grass because they have access to moisture and light. Mowing only cuts the tops off the weeds, leaving the roots intact, which allows them to grow back and continue to spread. Healthy, thriving native vegetation outcompetes weeds by using moisture and creating shade. Allowing natural vegetation to establish itself will help eliminate weeds. The City of Airdrie monitors natural areas and naturalized landscapes for weeds and pests and applies control where necessary.

Did you know mowing grass and dumping material on City property contravene our City’s bylaws?

Can you spot the duck nest?

Natural vegetation

Many animals use camouflage in natural areas to raise their young, forage for food and hide from predators. Did you know that some nesting birds in Airdrie can have up to 14 eggs? • Increases native plant, bird, fish and wildlife populations • Decreases weeds • Reduces soils erosion providing bank stability • Reduces dust and settles particles • Filtrates run-off and contaminants from entering the water • Removes carbon dioxide and other contaminants from the air • Is used as a buffer to lower noise pollution

Please be careful in our natural areas. Not all birds nest in trees. Don’t mow City property and stay on the pathways to help birds and other wild animals live safely.

What should you do? • Never mow/trim the grass on City property • Allow native vegetation to establish itself (3 to 5 years) • Never dump your grass clippings or other materials in natural areas or on any City property

new Waterworks Bylaw The new Bylaw includes water restrictions that would only come into effect during a water shortage. Water shortages are classified into levels, which would trigger different types of restrictions.

What do level one, two and three mean? LEVEL ONE

is status quo, the water schedule in level one is in place whether or not there’s a water shortage.

LEVEL TWO

water shortage would be declared in times of drought, emergency (like the floods in 2013), distribution issues or infrastructure failure.

LEVEL THREE

water shortage would be declared if Airdrie was facing serious challenges in providing sufficient water supply. This would usually affect a wider area than Airdrie.

Wade Bucks

The Bylaw includes a year-round watering schedule. 12 a.m. 1 a.m. 2 a.m. 3 a.m. 4 a.m. 5 a.m. 6 a.m. 7 a.m. 8 a.m. 9 a.m. 10 a.m. 11 a.m. 12 p.m. 1 p.m. 2 p.m. 3 p.m. 4 p.m. 5 p.m. 6 p.m. 7 p.m. 8 p.m. 9 p.m. 10 p.m. 11 p.m.

Recycling

Material must be placed at the curb/alley by 7 a.m. on your collection day.

• Collected once weekly year round on the business day following your garbage and organics collection day.

Cart placement is the main reason collection is missed. Leave a minimum of one metre clearance around the entire cart to ensure trucks are able to access it.

• Do not place excess recycling next to your recycling cart. The recycling collection trucks are automated and equipped to pick up carts only and not excess recycling around it. If you have excess recycling, hold onto it for the next collection day or take it to the Recycle Depot.

For information regarding missed collection, delays or other conditions affecting collection, call Waste & Recycling at 403.948.0246 or visit www.airdrie.ca/wasteandrecycling

Garbage • Loose material is not accepted • One bag limit, no heavier than 25kg and no larger than 90cm x 127cm • Collected weekly year round • Extra bags require a $3 excess waste tag. (Maximum three tagged bags weekly) • Excess waste tags can be purchased at 1. Airdrie Public Library 2. City Hall 3. Airdrie Co-op 4. Genesis Place 5. Shoppers Drug Mart locations

For a list of accepted items, visit www.airdrie.ca/wheredoesitgo

Pet waste

Pet waste – pet feces, kitty litter and cage shavings – is now accepted in your organics cart. Pet waste will be accepted in a paper or certified compostable bag or loose. Compostable bags

Biodegradable or oxo-biodegradable bags

Are made from a food by-product such as corn starch Are made from plastic and break down into compost Are usually opaque and feel softer than plastic bags

Prevent the flow of air, which is required during the composting process

Are guaranteed to completely break down during the composting process

Break apart into small plastic pieces, which do not completely decompose

Have a certified compostable logo

Diminish the quality of the finished compost

The City hopes that by accepting pet waste in the organics carts, more waste will be kept out of the landfill.

Never miss a collection day. Sign up through

.ca to get

a free text or email reminder for your waste, recycling and organics collection days.

Reminders Public spaces

Multi-family

Recycling and organics recycling programs are now available at over 120 stations throughout Airdrie, in City facilities, parks and along high traffic pathways. Help us keep Airdrie clean by placing your organics, mixed recycling, beverage containers and garbage in the correct bins. Placing your waste in the correct bin minimizes contamination. If there is excessive contamination, the bin contents will be sent to the landfill as the material is not hand sorted. The signs on the bins show what goes where. Remember, the beverage container bins are for refundable items only (pop cans, juice boxes, etc.) not coffee cups or fountain drink cups.

The City of Airdrie multi-family recycling program has been mandatory since January 2018. If you live in an apartment building, residential condominium complex, or any residential building that does not currently receive City curbside collection services, a recycling program should be in place. Every multi-family property must accept mixed paper, cardboard, plastics #1 – 7 (except Styrofoam), plastic film (shopping bags etc.), refundable beverage containers (excluding glass) tetrapaks® (juice and soup boxes) and metal (tin food cans, aluminum pie plates).

Please note: Pet waste is not accepted in City parks’ organics bins. Pet waste in City parks should be put in the garbage.

If you have questions specific to your recycling program, contact your property manager or condo board. If you do not have a program on site, please contact the City of Airdrie at education@airdrie.ca or 403.948.0246. For more information on multi-family recycling visit www.airdrie.ca/multifamily
