4 • Winter 2017-18

Stuart Sports Complex continues to be an innovative recreational landmark, hosting both local and regional events which deliver much-needed revenue to our economy. Each day the fields are nearcapacity results in a boost of more than $125,000 to our local hotels, restaurants and businesses. Our staff is moving forward with new ideas toward concessions and other amenities to further cement Stuart’s status as a premier destination in the outdoor sports sector. Blackberry Farm added even more events and fun twists to its programming this past season. Princess and character-driven themes saw repeat sellouts and drew a large contingent of visitors from outside our service area. The Vaughan Tennis Center also continues to draw outsiders into our borders with its excellent reputation. These visitors deliver new dollars to our tax base and help build a sustainable future. We continue to strive toward customer-centric solutions and individually meaningful experiences. Through technology upgrades we are revamping old systems and registration processes to trend to the future. In fitness, we’re adding more specialized niche classes that go beyond what park districts have traditionally offered. Lastly, we’re continuously examining our core offerings and asking “How can we do better?” Whether its youth sports, preschool, our trails and parks, or any number of other services, it’s our challenge and privilege to answer that question. If you have an improvement or idea please stop in and talk to a staff member or email us through our website. Enjoy the remainder of 2017, and look to the future with a sense of excitement. It’s truly where fun begins! Jim Pilmer Fox Valley Park District Executive Director

KIDS FITNESS INITIATIVES  FIT FOR KIDS

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. In partnership with local agencies, the District helped create the “Making Kane County Fit for Kids” campaign. 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 plan includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can apply to a common goal. By working together, we create an environment where children make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. For more information, visit makingkanefitforkids.org.

WORKING IT OUT TOGETHER

This program encourages kids and parents to work out together and develop a healthy lifestyle. Equipment will be set aside to allow children to work out with their parents. All children under the age of 14 are required to complete an equipment orientation prior to utilizing the fitness floor. Call the Vaughan or Eola Fitness Desk to set up an appointment. (BM) (IC)

Children and parents are introduced to the pool through a gently structured swim class. Swimmers explore the water, play, float and bond with their parent by singing songs and playing games. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. This is not a water safety class or swim instruction but a chance for children to become more acclimated to the water. Children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit. (EE)

Students with little or no swimming experience work on the basics of swimming, including front and back gliding, floating and arm and leg movements for freestyle and backstroke. To complete the level, swimmers must be able to swim with width of the pool using both freestyle and backstroke. Children may need to repeat this level more than once depending on their initial skill level and overall comfort in the water. (EE)

This interactive swim program boosts endurance and is designed to enhance skills learned in Advanced Beginner. To enroll, swimmers should have a solid knowledge of freestyle, backstroke and beginning breaststroke. To complete this level, they must be able to swim two lengths of the pool using freestyle with rhythmic breathing and backstroke and also be comfortable in breaststroke. (EE)

Tennis Lessons: Quickstart Green Stage 

This class is the next step for juniors after completing level Red Stage 2 as well as beginning tennis players ages 9-10. Curriculum involves sending, receiving, developing athleticism and game based learning. Players need to bring their own racquet. (BSV)

Gymnastics for Preschoolers! Success for Body and Mind! Did you know that putting your preschooler in gymnastics is one of the best things you can do for their education? Studies show that children learn cognitive skills more effectively in an environment that includes the body as well as the mind. Gymnastics and early childhood movement education is directly related to developing neurological pathways in students and promoting reading readiness. Children who have participated in movement education activities have longer attention spans, increased communication, problem solving skills, and improved self-esteem. (Researchers at the Robert Wood Medical School)

Volunteer Spotlight FOX FORCE VOLUNTEERS

People’s free time is at a premium these days, so why is volunteering more popular than ever? The answer, as most every volunteer will tell you, traces back to happiness and fulfillment. “Volunteering makes me feel good – it’s the inner satisfaction I get,’” said one of the Fox Valley Park District’s many ‘Fox Force Volunteers’ as he assisted during the annual Mid-American Canoe & Kayak Race, held every year on the first Sunday in June. “I always feel a sense of accomplishment, because I’m giving back to my community, helping out others and participating in worthwhile activities.” Volunteers are among the FVPD’s most valuable resources. They are involved in every event, program, facility and sport. On an annual basis, that adds up to approximately 3,500 volunteers who donate 22,000 hours of their time, skills and service. The FVPD values and appreciates every hour put forth, and offers a Fox Tracks reward program as a way of saying thanks with cool stuff like logo bags, visors and other merchandise. Today’s volunteers come from all walks of life: a teenager taking on responsibility by removing invasive plant species at Red Oak Nature Center, an executive sharing management skills at a community youth camp or a retiree inspiring young children as a volunteer reader at Creative Play Preschool. For many, volunteering is a way to gain experience, acquire new skills, meet new people, advance career aspirations and even reduce stress. The FVPD has a diverse array of volunteer opportunities. Individuals, families, businesses, Scouts, teens and school groups can all find ways to contribute, whether it’s helping with major events like Bugfest, participating in cleanup efforts in the parks and along the trails and working with kids, seniors and all those in between. Volunteering is definitely a feel-good activity. And it makes for a better community. Please consider joining Fox Force – we welcome you!

Outdoor Facilities FISHING LAKES AND BOAT RAMPS

TRAILS

The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure long-term, 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.

The park district features more than 48 miles of premier regional trails (trailheads with parking listed below). Trail maps are located on the “Park and Trails” tab at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org.

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. Fishing lakes with off-street parking include: •  Foxcroft Lake: Elder and Birch in Aurora •  Jericho Lake: Jericho Road in Aurora •  Lake Gregory/Blackberry Farm (free with paid admission and valid fishing license weekdays only May 1 to Aug. 31): 100 S. Barnes Road, Aurora •  Winter Lake: McCoy and Frontenac in Aurora •  Waubonsie Lake: Montgomery and Kautz in Aurora •  Wheatland Lake: Barrington and Spinnaker in Aurora Boat ramp locations: • Veterans Island •  South River Street Park

• Winter Lake Park •  Jericho Lake Park*

Stuart Sports Complex in Montgomery (60506) has two entrances. The North Entrance is located at 39W585 Jericho Road. The South Entrance is located at Griffin Dr. and Route 30.
