POLICIES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM This program is to provide assistance to qualifying children in the Norwalk School District to help pay for recreation activity fees. It is intended to open up participation opportunities by reducing financial obstacles for those who may not be participating because they may not be able to afford to pay the registration fees. This program is for participants up to and including grade seven that reside in Norwalk or are students of the Norwalk Community School District. Call 981-9206 to find out more.

RESIDENT/NON–RESIDENT POLICY A resident is any person who lives within the city limits of Norwalk. This is not to be confused with the school district. City and School District boundaries are not the same. Even though your mailing address is Norwalk, this does not necessarily mean you are a city resident. Most programs/classes have different fees for residents and nonresidents. City of Norwalk residents make a significant contribution to the financing and operation of the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Department through city property taxes. These taxes are paid whether or not individuals participate in programs or use facilities. To ensure equality, non-residents (those living outside the city limits) will be charged a non-resident fee in addition to the program or facility fee.

REFUND POLICY REFUNDS/CREDITS are only given if a program is cancelled/combined by the Norwalk Parks and Recreation, for a documented medical reason (program will be prorated), or if the spot can be filled with a person on our waiting list.

• A  credit toward future Recreation programs may be given to a participant who withdraws from a program (prior to the first meeting) and will be posted to your park and rec account. • A  ll refunds issued will be by the City of Norwalk in the form of a check regardless of original payment method. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing of refunds. • Refunds and/or credit will not be given for early termination of a program by the participant.

REGISTRATION POLICY Registration for our programs shall be for a minimum of ten business days. The Norwalk Parks and Recreation Department shall establish the beginning and ending dates for registration. Registration dates will be publicized in our brochure, N/Warren Town and County News, Norwalk Living magazine and the City of Norwalk website. Where there are a maximum number of participants listed, participation will be determined on a first come, first serve basis. Registrants registering for a program after the registration deadline will only be allowed to participate if there is enough room in the program. Registrants registering for team sports after the registration deadline has passed will be required to pay a $15.00 late fee in addition to the cost of the program. Registrants registering for team sports after the registration deadline will not be guaranteed a shirt (for programs where shirts are provided), but will still be required to pay the late fee. Exception: New residents moving into the area after the registration deadline has passed will not be required to pay a late fee, however, if shirts have already been ordered, a shirt will not be provided.

CREDIT CARDS The Norwalk Parks and Recreation Department has the capability to accept credit cards for payment of all our programs and services. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover and debit cards. This means you will be able to pay for your pool passes, pool parties, and registration fees – basically everything – with your credit card.

POLICIES TEAM ASSIGNMENT FOR YOUTH SPORTS POLICY Children will be placed on teams in a random manner with the exception of children living in the same household. Parents of children living in the same household may request their children be assigned to the same team, providing the children are in the same age division. To align teams fairly, volunteer coaches may pick one assistant. If a program needs more than two coaches per team, the Parks and Recreation Department will assign the additional assistant from names of volunteers appearing on the registration forms.

DEFINITION OF A FAMILY For the purpose of purchasing family pool passes, or receiving a family discount for our Tae Kwon Do program, a family is defined as all immediate family members residing at the same street address. This would include children of divorced parents who have joint custody, stepchildren, and foster children. Babysitters, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and ex-spouses are not considered immediate family members unless they appear on the same federal income tax return.

VANDALISM Each year Norwalk taxpayers must cover the cost of repairing and replacing park facilities that have been willfully damaged or destroyed. Since the parks are unsupervised, it is difficult for park staff to catch the vandals who cause this damage. You can assist by reporting any act of vandalism to the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Department at 981-9206 or the Norwalk Police Department at 2223321 (dispatch). Violators will be prosecuted.

TYPOS, ERRORS, OOPS, WE GOOFED From time-to-time, there may be an error in days, times, fees, etc, in the brochure. If so the staff will take every step to correct the situation in a timely and efficient manner. Thank you for your patience and understanding should these situations arise.

OTHER LISTINGS FOR OUR PROGRAMS 1.  N/Warren Town and County News For various reasons, sometimes it is necessary for programs to be added, deleted, or changed. Please refer to our column “Leisure Line” in the N/Warren Town and County News to keep updated. 2.  Norwalk Living Magazine We list our current programs in this publication. 3.  City of Norwalk Website The City of Norwalk website is www.norwalk.iowa.gov. There is a complete copy of the current brochure on this website along with an on-line registration link and/or printable forms.

A Special Thank You Every year dozens of volunteers with varying talents share their time helping to provide better parks and great coaches for our youth sports programs. On behalf of the Recreation Department thank you for making our parks and youth programs a success. If you have any hidden talents that can be shared through coaching youth, supervising activities, or improving our parks, please phone the Parks and Recreation Department at 981–9206 and thanks for volunteering!

NORWALK FAMILY TAE KWON DO Jason Brooks is the head instructor of the school, Norwalk Family Taekwondo, which offer programs for ages 5 through adults. The classes are separated by rank (beginners and advanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the Oviatt Multi-purpose room (door #16) with 6pm start. Times/Dates may vary depending on school activities. We also offer Little Dragon program designed for children ages 5 to 7. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the beginning class.

All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline and perseverance. Competition is also available for those students who are interested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives confidence and allows the students to use the skills they have learned in class. Families are strongly encouraged to join and train together. We found that the kids learn better when one or both of their parents/guardians are learning alongside of them in class.

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? The Parks and Recreation Department is committed to providing a safe and quality park system for the residents of Norwalk. Park rules exist to assure that park visitors have a pleasant experience. Two specific park rules that need to be remembered when taking a dog to Norwalk city parks are: (1) dogs are to be leashed at all times; and (2) pet owners are required to pick up and properly dispose of their pet’s waste.

CITY DOG LICENSES Norwalk’s four legged furry friends don’t always obey their masters. Wandering dogs sometimes become a nuisance to others who don’t show the same kind of love for pets as you do. For that reason residents of Norwalk need to license their dog’s EVERY YEAR at City Hall to ensure a safe return back to their owner and also to verify the dog’s rabies vaccinations are current. The licensing renewal period begins January 1 and runs through the end of March. After March 31, a late fee will be assessed on all licenses renewed after this date. If the police/Norwalk Animal Control has to pick up your pet, there is a $75 impound fee (1st offense) to get it released back to you. For more information, contact Norwalk City Hall at 981-0228, ext. 2221.
