See Ray Franzen Bird Sanctuary Project Update on page 27!

Dear Residents of the Itasca Park District, Some of you may wonder how many employees does the Itasca Park District need to run the district. Over the course of one year, the Park District employs approximately 200 individuals; with a summertime peak of 160 employees. The district is the largest local employer of Itasca youth, with over 58% of our work force age 21 and under and many youth return year after year. As you look through the brochure you will see several staff pictures. In addition to our Executive Director there are superintendents, supervisors, managers, coordinators and trainers. Not all are pictured but trust me, they are there every day to insure the Itasca Park District runs smoothly. Many of our staff members wear several hats. These positions are the tip of the iceberg. The support staff in each department varies. Without the many employees there would be no programs. With our outdoor programs and activities, summer is our busiest season. The Waterpark in the summer has the largest work force. Day camps, ground and facility maintenance, aquatics, athletics, fitness, dance,

gymnastics, marketing, preschool, day care, finance, reception, janitorial and special events all need staff to make their programs or departments succeed. When fall arrives the work force decreases but programs, events, facilities and outside activities continue and staff is in place to meet everyone’s needs. The Board of Commissioners recognizes the excellent staff of the Itasca Park District and we give credit where credit is due. Sincerely,

Linda Aiani President, Itasca Park District Board of Commissioners

The Itasca Inner Prestige Dance Team is back for its 7th year! The team participates in a variety of competitions, events and performances throughout the year. Although Dance Team is full of fun, it is also a big commitment and a lot of hard work. There are three levels to our team. Level placement will be decided at auditions. Team members are required to sign on for the entire year. Members of the advanced and intermediate team level are required to attend all scheduled practices each week. New this year, intermediate and advanced level team will be practicing together 4 hours per week. The Inner Prestige Mini team is for those interested in joining the team and competing, but are not yet ready for the intermediate and advanced level competition team. The mini team will practice once a week and will only perform group routines at competitions. Solos, duets, and trios are reserved specifically for the more advanced team members. Try-outs for all team levels will take place on Tuesday, August 15th from 5:30-7:30pm in the Iris Room. Dancers will learn several short routines and then be evaluated. Team placement/recommendation will then be given to the dancers. Prior dance experience is required to participate on team, but all levels of experience will be considered for placement. The Itasca Park District is proud to offer installment billing to help alleviate the upfront cost of the dance team. Paperwork must be completed at the Itasca Rec Center front desk and a voided check must be presented.

How to Register

Definition of Residency

Regis

t Registration will begin on Monday, July 31. Onlin er Registration will continue until the class is filled or needs e! to be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment or individual program deadlines. Mail-in registration for the Fitness Center and Waterpark passes will not be accepted. Itasca Park District Residents will need proof of residency and children in their household to register for the first time since December 1, 2014. Waivers In accordance with Recreation Department policy, all program participants must sign a hold-harmless agreement prior to participation in Department sponsored programs. The waiver must be signed by adults participating in adult programs, and by a parent or legal guardian for children under 18 years of age.

In Case of Oops! Complete details of program policies, procedures, and guidelines are sometimes omitted from the program brochures because of space limitations. Also, errors in days, times, registration requirements and fees may occur. We apologize for any errors that may appear in the brochure. We thank you for your patience and understanding when these situations arise.

A. All requests for refunds must be submitted in person or by phone two business days prior to the first class meeting or practice of program. Trips require reservations weeks ahead of time and therefore do not allow us to refund. Please see staff for individual trip policies. B. Individuals requesting refunds with two or more business days notice prior to the first class, meeting, or practice will receive a 100% refund, less $10 for administrative costs. C. No refunds will be issued for any programs within two days of the first meeting of a program, unless a physician’s excuse is presented. Refunds requested for medical reasons will be prorated from the time the request is received. D. A refund will not be given to programs that cost less than $15. The amount minus the $10 fee will be applied to another class or a voucher given for future use.

Insurance Policy The Itasca Park District does not provide medical coverage for injuries suffered while participating in park district programs, or while using park facilities. The park district, therefore, cannot assume responsibility for personal injury for persons participating in recreation programs or using facilities. Persons are advised to make provisions for this coverage in their family insurance program.

Fee Information Due to liability concerns, all individuals wishing to participate in any park district program must pay the registration fee listed in the brochure prior to the start of the first class. Any individual who is unable to pay the registration fee must contact the Superintendent of Recreation to set up a payment plan. No phone registration will be accepted. Individuals not paying full program registration fee, or those on payment plans, will be assessed a 10% service charge if any payment is late.

Itasca Recreation Center Rental The Itasca Recreation Center may be reserved for private use during non-program hours. Groups and individuals should contact the park district at 630-773-2257 or visit www.itascaparkdistrict.com/rentals for more information. A Security Deposit is required in order to hold a date. If cancellation occurs within 10 days prior to rental, deposit will be retained. See contract for refund policies.

Cooperation The park district wishes to acknowledge the cooperation of the Village of Itasca and the Itasca School District #10 for enabling the park district to provide numerous year-round recreational activities. The park district is permitted to use the school facilities when not used by the schools. For this reason there may be occasional changes in the schedule.

Senior Citizens Senior Citizen rates apply to those 60 years and older.
