Health Tip!

Kids’ Exercise: How Much? The American Heart Association recommends that children and teens take part in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. But those 60 minutes don’t have to be one continuous block of time. Incorporate activities throughout the course of the day – free play time, activities at school, and activity classes or organized sports. 11

The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity. Teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition provides them a solid foundation for a healthy future. The District is a part of the partnership group that developed the strategic action principles that guide the Making Kane County Fit for Kids campaign. Those principles were used to develop the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan” that provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on the path toward healthy living. The plan also includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can employ together to create an environment where children learn to make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. Visit makingkanefitforkids.org. 12

IROC: I’m Reducing Obesity in Children As part of the Making Kane Fit for Kids Initiative, Fox Valley Park District is partnering with the American Cancer Society and Provena Mercy Medical Center to provide a series of workshops that emphasize proper nutrition education for parents and children, including goal setting and motivation related to healthy behavior issues. During the workshops parents attend nutrition classes presented by a registered dietitian while children participate in a cooking demonstration. This session will be held in Spanish. (SC)

Batting Cages All three community centers have batting cages that may be rented by the hour. Each is equipped with a manual pitching machine, where users can feed balls at their own pace. It has adjustable speeds for different ages and levels – from youth to adult – and can be used for either baseball or softball. Balls are provided, but players should bring their own bats and helmets. Vaughan has temporary mounds that can be used inside the cages for those who want to brush up on their pitching skills. Note: There is no bat-to-ball contact allowed outside of the cages (this includes soft toss with Wiffle balls or other soft balls). The cages also can be used to practice golf.

What is QuickStart Tennis? QuickStart Tennis is a new format to help children 10 and under learn and play the game of tennis. Balls are lower in compression so they bounce lower and don’t move as fast – making them easier to hit. This allows kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Rackets are sized for small hands, and the courts are smaller and easier to cover. Full-sized courts can be reconfigured to accommodate up to six 36-foot courts so kids can spend their time playing instead of waiting in line.

What’s that racket?

Tennis For Youth Tennis Lessons: QuickStart Skills Indoors

Tennis Lessons: QuickStart Orange Stage

QuickStart Skills is a fast, fun way to get kids into tennis. Participants will learn racquet control, bouncing and hitting within boundaries and cooperative games to promote teamwork. They will work on footwork drills to simulate proper tennis movement and hand-eye coordination drills. Instruction is rally-based. Participants are encouraged to bring their own rackets. No class Sept. 3 and Nov. 22 to 25. (BSV)

QuickStart Orange Stage uses a modified lower compression ball that is 50 percent slower than a regulation ball. Participants learn more detailed forehand and backhand progressions, rallying on a 60-foot court, serve and return, volleys, extended format competition and scoring. Players need to bring their own racket. No class Sept. 3 and Nov. 22 to 25. (BSV)

Swim Lessons AquaTots — Indoors

Swim Lessons: Parent+Preschool — Indoors

AquaTots is designed to provide a fun and nurturing environment for young children to be safely introduced to the water with an accompanying adult. AquaTots provides a unique opportunity for an adult and child to play, float and bond together through singing songs and playing games. This is not a safety class or swim instruction but a chance for children to become acclimated to the water. Children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit. (JHV)

Children develop a foundation for future swimming skills as instructors help the adult work with the child on basic techniques such as submerging the face and head in the water, gliding on front and back, kicking and beginning freestyle and backstroke motions. This is a great class to introduce children to the water, work on social skills and calm any separation anxiety or fear toward the water. Children who are not potty-trained must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit. (JHV)

Aquatics Swim Lessons: Preschool — Indoors Children who have already had an introduction to the water and/or are comfortable being in a group environment without a parent present can work on basic swimming skills such as submerging the face and head, freestyle and backstroke motions and gliding on the stomach and back, while learning the rules of the pool and how to keep themselves safe. To complete this level and move on to the beginner class before turning 5, children must be able to float independently on their fronts and backs, submerge their faces completely, swim freestyle with little or no help and be free of separation anxiety.

Aquatics Swim Lessons: Youth Advanced – Indoors

Swim Lessons: Adult Level 2 — Indoors

Swimmers who are looking to master their technique and endurance before possibly entering competitive swimming can continue to work on freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke while also being introduced to the butterfly stroke, treading water and limited diving techniques. To enroll, swimmers should be able to swim three lengths of the pool in freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke with minimal breaks. (JHV)

Continue to work on freestyle and backstroke, as introduced in Level 1, and begin learning butterfly and breaststroke. To complete the level, swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle and backstroke without help. The first day of each session is designated as a test day to ensure every swimmer has been placed in a skills-appropriate class. (JHV) Age

Nature Programs Connecting Kids with Nature

No Child Left Inside Today’s children have become disconnected from nature; some call it “nature deficit disorder.” Instead of spending hours outside riding bikes and climbing trees, they’re playing video games, surfing the web, watching TV and texting. No Child Left Inside is an initiative by the Fox Valley Park District that encourages children to unplug from technology and get outside to enjoy all the recreational resources and outdoor activities available to them – the fresh air and fun of the great outdoors!

Blue Moon Hike

Bird’s Eye View

Two full moons in one month? Celebrate the “blue moon” by exploring and hiking in the woods by the light of the full moon. End the evening with a campfire and roasted marshmallows! All participants must be registered; all children must be accompanied by a participating adult. The campfire area is protected by the picnic shelter. Dress for the weather. Meet at the shelter to begin the hike. (MG)

Discover what the birds are doing this time of year! Kids can search for a variety of birds using binoculars as well as their own eyes and ears. Participants also will get to play some fun bird-related games and make a bird craft. (MG)

Green Tip!

Kick the Bottled Water Habit Americans use 4 million plastic bottles every hour – but only 1 in 4 is recycled. Instead of reaching for bottled water, use a water filter. If 10,000 people gave up their daily bottled water habit for a year, that would remove 2,000 pounds of empty bottles from the waste stream.

Webelos will tin-punch a lantern, giving them an opportunity to see how materials other than wood can be used to make a useful item. Scouts will take the finished project home with them. Leaders and parents may accompany the Scout. (LB) Age

What is Creative Play Preschool? The Creative Play Preschool program offers a stimulating environment for children to grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. The preschool curriculum includes activities involving art, math, science, language, music / movement and dramatic play. The program features an excellent student/teacher ratio enabling instructors to work with each child individually. A childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first experience with school sets a foundation for development. Park district instructors will instill a love for learning that will continue through their future years in school. Children must be 3 or 4 years old as of Sept. 1 of the current school year and must be completely toilet-trained. The school year is divided into three sessions: fall (September to November), winter (November to March) and spring (March to May). Creative Play Preschool is offered at the Prisco and Eola Community Centers and Red Oak Nature Center.

Creative Play Preschool Registration Payment Plan Full-year registration is available with initial payment due at registration and eight more equal Electronic Funds Transfers (EFTs) will electronically withdraw the money from a checking, savings or credit card for the scheduled payments throughout the school year. If enrolling in only one session entire payment is due at time of registration. Note: There is a $25 registration fee due at the time of registration.

Looking for an extended-day option? Breakfast Club, Lunch with Pals and Playtime and Afternoon Labs at Prisco Community Center provide enrichment opportunities for preschoolers. See page 78 for more information.

Fox Force Volunteer Program We appreciate all of our volunteers!

Volunteer Program

Thank you to all of our many volunteers who have given of their time and talent during the summer. We appreciate all the people who volunteered as coaches, program volunteers, at special events and at all other activities that time and talent was given.

Volunteer Spotlight Veterans of the Mid-American Canoe and Kayak Race always enjoy passing through North Aurora while paddling down the Fox River. No, they don’t relish the task of portaging around the dam and carrying their boats. That’s hard work. But it’s also a celebration – the North Aurora Lions Club makes sure of that. Since the early 1970s, the Lions have been a fixture. On the first Sunday every June, the Lions stage above the dam and well within earshot of the State Street bridge, lending a little ambience and a lot of fun to the experience for the hundreds of paddlers who pass through during each year’s race, which has been run for 51 years. Armed with binoculars, spreadsheets and a microphone, Lions members identify each boat that makes its way to the portage, enthusiastically announcing paddlers’ names and hometowns and welcoming them to shore, where they are greeted with music, high fives and free bottles of water. Denise Duran and the “Oh, the paddlers just love it,” said Bob Strusz, who’s headed up the Lions portage North Aurora Lions Club are crew for the last eight years. “They feel like celebrities out there in the water, raising mainstays as volunteers at a paddle, smiling and waving. It’s how we welcome people to North Aurora.” the Mid-American Canoe & The cast of volunteers fluctuates from year to year, but Strusz, Mark Gaffino, Kayak Race each year. Denise Duran, Jim Davis, Aislinn Strusz and Amanda Gaffino have held down the fort in recent years. They’re always having fun – but they’re working hard as well. “The tough part is when you see a pack of 30 or so boats in the distance all clustered together,” said Strusz. “We put 2-3 people out ahead with binoculars so we can start relaying numbers to the announcer. We don’t want to miss anybody.” This year, the Lions set up shop at 6:30 a.m., worked the canoe race until 12:30 p.m. and then headed off to take part in the North Aurora Days parade. “We don’t look at it as a job because we love doing this; it’s a blast,” said Strusz. “For the Lions Club, it’s all about the people and giving something back to the community – it’s what we do. We hope to be a part of the Mid-American Race as long as it’s held.” We’ll raise a paddle for that! 121

Nestled on the east bank of the Fox River, the Red Oak Nature Center is surrounded by 40 acres of lush forest and wildlife habitat – an ideal setting for visitors to learn about the great outdoors through direct interaction with nature. Six hiking trails and the nationally renowned Fox River Trail offer avenues of exploration via hiking and biking, with interpretive signs along the way that explain the ways of nature. An indoor museum further enhances the educational experience, featuring environmental exhibits and “hands-on” participation designed to create a better understanding of the natural world.

Devil’s Cave Follow the Fox River Trail from the Nature Center down to Devil’s Cave at the river’s edge. It’s the only cave in the Aurora area. Learn the legend of how this unique geological formation was given its haunting name.

Observation Deck Step out, take a deep breath and enjoy truly spectacular views from above the Fox River. Located directly behind the Nature Center, the Observation Deck sits over the Fox River and is an ideal vantage point for viewing river wildlife, migratory birds and the wooded shorelines and islands.

Trails

The Fox Valley Park District maintains 163 parks and 43 miles of interconnected trails amid 2,300 acres of parkland and 22 miles of Fox River shoreline. Park service coverage is spaced throughout Aurora, North Aurora and Montgomery, providing virtually every resident and neighborhood with convenient, nearby access to parks and open space.

The park district features more than 43 miles of premier regional trails (trailheads with parking listed below). Trail maps are located on the “Park and Trails” tab at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org.

Dog Parks The park district has two dog parks: • Lincoln Park Dog Park, at the south end of Lincoln Park at South Harrison Avenue just north of Prairie Street and east of Elmwood Drive • Gregory Island Dog Park, between Routes 25 and 31 on Indian Trail Dogs must be registered with the park district. Dog tag registration may be done by mail, email, online or fax by filling out the registration available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org or in person at the park district police office, 1460 S.

Fishing Lakes and Boat Ramps The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure longterm, quality fishing at its lakes, the Fox Valley Park District has a cooperative management agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that is intended to develop healthy eco-systems and improve fishing quality. Rather than stock and re-stock regularly, the lakes management program creates a fishery that is self-sustaining. The payoffs for fishermen are greater catch rates and bigger fish. Printable contour maps of select lakes are available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict. org. The maps feature lake depths and shoreline features, along with specific information on fish species, average numbers and sizes, and creel limits.
