The Surgeon General recommends “families plan activities that provide exercise and enjoyment for the whole family as a way of preventing excessive weight gain.” If children observe their parents being physically active and having fun, they are more likely to be active and stay active throughout their lives. Modeling healthy physical activity is one of the most common reasons that parents seek out fitness opportunities that they can participate in with their children.

thank you

thank you! THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!

In all of the activities that the Parks and Recreation Department has to offer, there are often many volunteers who work with our staff to make the program a success. Coaches of youth sport programs spend many hours in practice and coaching games, dedicating their time to the youth of Eau Claire. The quality of these programs and the benefits that the kids receive would not be as great, if it were not for these caring individuals. Thank You! To any volunteer whose name we may have missed, we sincerely apologize!

INSURANCE The Parks and Recreation Department does not provide accident or hospital insurance for people participating in sponsored activities. All participants should review their personal insurance policies for coverage. AGE REQUIREMENTS For all youth programs will be as of the first day of the program. Parents, please, do not ask to have your child put in a class he/ she does not belong in. All age requirements are set to benefit the children and to make instruction easier for the program leader. In some instances, age requirements have been set for your child’s safety. Thank you for your cooperation. WE LOVE PARENTS but... with your child’s best interest in mind, parents are invited to attend their child’s midterm and last class meeting only (instructional programs). Our instructors have found that the quality of instruction is affected by parent and/or sibling distractions and interruptions. We feel it is most beneficial for your child to have recreational time with his/her peers. Instructors welcome the opportunity to discuss participants’ progress with parents. If you would like your child’s instructor to contact you, please call the Recreation Office.

NON-CITY RESIDENT POLICY Department programs and activities that are not part of summer school offerings are supported by city property taxes. Non-city residents will be required to pay their “fair share” to support activities. The program fee for non-residents will be double the resident fee or an additional $10.00, whichever is less. A non-resident is considered anyone who lives outside of the city limits (ie: township/county). Unfortunately, our registration software cannot always decipher if addresses are located within the Eau Claire city limits.  For this reason, all participant addresses are reviewed during each season.  Invoices will be sent to non-residents that pay the resident fee. YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM Area businesses and community groups in Eau Claire support our scholarship program for low-income families. Any family that can provide proof of effective Food Share Quest Card (paperwork showing effective date), proof of residency (drivers license with current address or utility bill with name and address) and is a city of Eau Claire resident qualifies. Call the Recreation Office for application materials or go to our website. If you would like to donate to our scholarship fund, please call the Recreation Office for information. AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT The Eau Claire Parks and Recreation Department intends to comply with the intent and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you need any special accommodations, please call Dawn Comte at the Recreation Office (839-5032) so that the necessary arrangements can be made. If you have concerns regarding our compliance with the ADA contact the City of Eau Claire’s ADA Coordinator, Jan Dole @ 715-839-4921. TDD phone call 715-839-4972. PROGRAM EVALUATIONS Program evaluation forms are available online. If you do not have access to a computer, the L.E. Phillips Public Library offers free internet access to the public. Call (715) 839-5004 for library hours. Thank you for taking time to complete our online evaluations.

Parks and Recreation staff may photograph or videotape participants enrolled in its programs for promotional or training purposes.

LOST & FOUND ITEMS Fairfax Pool has a one-week policy for holding lost and found items due to the nature of items that are found. Items of value will be stored until the end of the season. All other programs and facilities will keep lost and found items for 3 months or until the end of each season. CONCUSSION INFORMATION www.eauclairewi.gov/athletics/concussion-information Wis. State Statute: At the beginning of a season for a youth athletic activity, the person operating the youth athletic activity shall distribute a concussion and head injury information sheet to each person who will be coaching that youth athletic activity and to each person who wishes to participate in that youth athletic activity.
