Special Events Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS

The talented youth of the community present a musical production that will leave the audience begging for more! ‘101 Dalmatians Kids’ is the familiar tale of kidnappers, puppies and villains. In a loving home in the city of London, human owners Robert and Anita live happily with Dalmatian parents Pongo and Perdita as they raise their Dalmatian puppies. Everything is quiet until the monstrous Cruella De Vil plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat! All the dogs of London unite to daringly rescue the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen. Tickets available beginning June 3 at Prisco Community Center or online at www.seatyourself.biz/foxvalleyparkdistrict. (KD)

The Emperor’s New Clothes This musical production featuring young talent from the community transports the audience to the kingdom of Glump, which has been taxed to abstraction ever since their emperor became a pampered clothes horse with a lack of taste. While the emperor and his family are busy mismatching their wardrobe, the rest of the kingdom is in a shambles. Enter two con artists who devise an ingenious plan for fleecing the emperor. Their pitch: a magic cloth that appears invisible to people unworthy of their position. Naturally, everyone chooses to ‘see’ the magic cloth, until the innocent candor of a child ‘reveals all.’ The emperor is shamed into reforming his leadership role in society, and his spoiled daughters learn a valuable lesson in humility.

Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats; the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather.

A major component of this campaign is the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan,” which provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on a path toward healthy living. The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity.

Health Tip!

Pace Yourself! You don’t have to keep up with the slim and sculpted instructor in the workout video. Pace yourself, and exercise at a rate that is challenging, but still comfortable. Many people think they’ll lose weight faster if they work out harder, but in reality, weight loss is best accomplished gradually over a period of time. 15

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?

Green Tip!

Wash Your Laundry in Cold Water

42 42

An easy way to clean green is to turn the dial on your washing machine to cold. Unless you’re washing soiled baby diapers, most loads don’t need hot water, and 90% of the energy used by washing machines goes into heating. The higher the water temperature, the higher the cost to you and the planet.


Volleyball Beach Volleyball Skills

Cyclones Volleyball

This class is designed for participants who want to learn the basic skills to play volleyball and is offered as additional training to the indoor volleyball program. Beach volleyball is usually a slower game since the volleyballs are softer, lighter and slightly bigger than indoor volleyballs. This gives a chance for younger kids to experience the sport with a more positive outcome. Instructors will focus on basic techniques in passing, serving, setting, defending and hitting. Classes will be held outside by the sand volleyball courts. This class is taught by All Star Sports Instruction staff. (MO)

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 technique 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 at 630-907-9600, ext. 1147, for more information. (JR)

Aquatics Swim Lessons: Parent+Preschool – Indoors

Swim Lessons: Parent+Preschool – Outdoors

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) Age

Section Heading 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.

Health Tip!

You Wear it Well! Sunscreen is a good idea in all types of weather – not just hot, sunny days. Ultraviolet rays can do significant damage any time of year – even in the winter. Some of the most severe sunburns can happen on cloudy days when people are less likely to wear protection; up to 40 percent of the sun’s radiation still gets through. Slather up!

This class is a fun and effective adaptation of traditional yoga poses that allows participants to build strength and improve flexibility in the supportive aquatic environment with minimal stress on the joints. (JHV) Age

There are three ways to register:

Trees are vital for creating clean air because they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. In one year, a single tree can absorb as much carbon as that produced by a car driven 25,000 miles. That same tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen per year, enough for two people.

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!

Naturalist Trekking

Swirl Search

Visitors can join a Red Oak naturalist out and about at different parks for a leisurely stroll, looking for signs of animals, using binoculars and checking out some of the nature found in community parks. Participants should dress for the weather. This is a free program but registration is necessary. (MG)

In this program, participants embark on a search for this unique and beautiful pattern in nature. The fun starts with a short story and a craft, followed by the hunt. This amazing journey will inspire appreciation for the shapes that can be found in the natural world. (MG)

Green Tip!

You ‘CAN’ recycle! Each aluminum can recycled in the United States saves enough energy to power a television set for about three hours. Yet, Americans toss so many aluminum cans in the garbage that the nation’s entire fleet of commercial airplanes could be rebuilt from the same amount of material every three months, according to the University of Colorado Recycling Services. 82

Parker’s

Children’s Theatre Parker’s Children’s Theatre, a new professional theater company for young audiences, strives to inspire children through the performing arts. Productions will utilize professional performers who educate and entertain, introducing many students to the wonderful world of theater for the first time. Register a school field trip or group special event. Each production is appropriate for children in preschool through sixth grade. Contact Kyle Donahue to schedule a daytime group performance. The performance is 45 minutes and can include a question-andanswer session.

Parker’s Children’s Theatre: ‘The Wizard of Oz’ The Fox Valley Park District’s professional theatre company presents ‘The Wizard of Oz: A Musical Play for Young Audiences.’ When Dorothy gets her wish of escaping her dull Kansas farm life, it brings her to a wondrous new place that is bright and exciting, but just isn’t home. With her new friends, Dorothy sets out to ask the allpowerful wizard for help. Children from the audience become munchkins, help oil the Tin Man and one youngster is even magically transformed into the wonderful Wizard of Oz. This is a musical story about friendship, persistence and discovering the magic inside yourself. (KD) Age

Freecycling is taking things you no longer use and giving them to charities and organization that can use them – rather than throwing your items away. It’s a great way to reduce waste and save money. By freecycling, you reduce the amount of waste that may end up in a landfill and you also save money by recycling still-usable items rather than buying them new.

Their pitch: a magic cloth which appears invisible to people unworthy of their position.

Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather.

Fox Force Volunteer Program Section Heading We appreciate all of our volunteers! Thank you to all of our many volunteers who have given of their time and talent during the spring. 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 Aaron Rodriguez wanted to get involved and help out with his children’s youth sports programs at the Eola Community Center. He just wasn’t sure how to get started. His wife Noralina had a simple solution – she volunteered him to be a volunteer. “She signed me up the same time she signed up our children,” recalled Aaron. “I’d never coached before, so I wasn’t quite sure how to approach it.” His daughters Idalys (12), Alina (8), son Aidan (10) and many other young players have been calling him “Coach” ever since. Aaron made an easy transition from sideline rookie to trusted mentor, coaching in three different Youth Basketball leagues. “That means three different one-hour practice times during the week and three different game times on Saturdays … that’s a high level of commitment,” said Eola recreation supervisor Matt Odom. “He has a great attitude and kids love coming back to play for him from season-to-season. Volunteers like him make our Youth Basketball League the success that it is.” Aaron’s athletic background was in distance running, not basketball, but his philosophy was more about instilling a winning attitude in his players than teaching Xs and Os. “You teach them the basics of the game, but what I really stressed was that they work to get better and have a lot of fun doing it,” said Aaron. “I always tell them it’s OK to mess up – that’s one of the ways you get better. It’s rewarding to see them learn new skills; they are so determined to do well.” The same could be said for the coach, who works as an IT professional and understands the definition of stress. “My job and schedule can be pretty hectic, which is why I always look forward to every coaching session – it’s like a fun hobby, and I love laughing with the kids,” said Aaron. “I enjoy being with my children, helping them and their friends as they grow. It means a lot to me, and hopefully to them, too.”
