at Blackberry Farm

Bring the entire family out to Blackberry Farm to celebrate the fall season. Discover the ways of the pioneer and enjoy musical entertainment and seasonal crafts. Activities are included with daily admission. (JZ)

Zombie Invasion 5K It’s one thing to run a 5K, but it’s a whole different race when the course is infested by a horde of zombies. The invasion is spreading! Can you survive? This 2nd annual event will take racers through a sea of obstacles on a zombie infested course. Run, climb, crawl, pull and slide – whatever it takes – to escape the living dead. Wearing a flag football-like belt, racers will make strategic choices to find the quickest route to survival. Afterward, the lucky survivors – those who finish with one or more flags intact – and freshly resurrected zombies – those who finish without flags – will enjoy entertainment, food and beverages around a bonfire. (AK) Three different levels of participation: Racers ($55): Includes event T-shirt, chip timing, race medal, access to Safe Zone and invitation to Zombieland Party in the Park. Zombies ($20): Includes Zombie T-shirt, full zombie transformation and invitation to the Zombieland Party in the Park. Spectators ($5): Includes access to the Zombieland Party in the Park, people (and zombie) watching opportunities galore.

Tai Chi for Health

Taiji Quan

Tai Chi is a unique way of exercising through graceful, slow, smooth and flowing movements. The routine is designed to free the mind and body of stress. Classes can be taken either one or two days a week. (MO)

Sometimes called ‘moving meditation,’ Taiji Quan is a slow, gentle exercise that encourages balance, good circulation and stress reduction. It is also a form of self-defense based on sensitivity, timing and leverage rather than strength. Those who sign up for one night per week may attend either Monday or Wednesday as schedule permits. Head instructor David Carr has been practicing Taiji Quan for more than 20 years. No class Nov. 25 and 27. (MO)

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 accomodate up to six 36foot courts so kids can spend their time playing instead of waiting in line.

Note All tennis participants are subject to pro approval and can be transferred based on ability level.

Green Tip!

Thanks!

Switch to save water and money!

We appreciate all of our volunteers! Thank you to 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.

Save every time you flush by installing low-flow toilets. They use only 1.6 gallons per flush, compared to 3.5 gallons per flush for pre-1994 models. Save water at your faucets by installing aerators. This could cut your annual water consumption by 50%.

Cyclones Volleyball Cyclones Volleyball Club provides high-level training by staff dedicated to helping individuals reach their goals, whether that is playing on their high school varsity team, playing collegiate volleyball, or being successful in life. Cyclones stresses the development of fundamental techniques through quality repetition and provides players enough practice time to develop the core skills required to compete at a high level. Tryouts for this program start in September. Practices during the season are held at the Vaughan Athletic Center. Call Jordan Real at 630-907-9600, ext. 1147 for more information.

Aquatics Swim Lessons: Parent+Preschool – Indoors

Swim Lessons AquaTots – 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. An adult and child can 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.

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. (JC) Age

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.

Gymnastics for 2s & 3s with Parents

Little Flyaways Little Flyaways is an introductory gymnastics program at Eola and Prisco consisting of four levels for ages 18 months to 5 years. The Little Flyaways gymnastics classes focus on developing motor skills, coordination, strength, flexibility body awareness and basic gymnastics skills. In the parent/child classes, children must be accompanied by a participating adult. Please make alternate arrangements for siblings. At Eola, the child care area is available in the morning during the weekdays. Parent Watch is on the third week and last week of each session. Parents are asked to stay during the duration of the class in case the child needs to use the restroom. All of the Little Flyaways gymnastics classes progress into the recreational and/or competitive programs. Call Kristin Balderas at 630-851-8990.

Parents assist their young gymnasts as everyone learns basic gymnastics skills on the vault, bars, beam and floor. Age-appropriate activities help develop flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. Safety tips and spotting techniques are stressed. This class is essential for helping children develop their school readiness skills. For example, instructors will teach students how to waddle like a penguin during animal week, while also working on taking turns and foot-eye coordination. All children must be accompanied by a participating adult. Siblings may only attend if they also are enrolled in the class. No class Nov. 25 to Dec. 1. (KB) Age

Fun for Families Build a Fairy House!

White Tail Trail

Legend has it that if someone builds a fairy home and leaves it in the garden, it might attract a fairy! Even for those who don’t believe in fairies, this is a great creative project and a way to test the myth. Participants are encouraged to bring in items to decorate the fairy house, but should remember that fairies are small, and so are their homes! The activity will also include a short hike to collect bark, leaves and whatever else can be found to be used as building materials. (MG)

It’s deer season, and Red Oak is offering kids the opportunity to learn about and explore artifacts of white-tail deer (fur, bones, legs, antlers, skulls and more). Participants will be amazed by the crazy sounds made to communicate and will create some edible deer scat to take home. (MG)

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!
