What’s the #1 rule for any kids’ clubhouse: No Parents Allowed! This is great news for Mom and Dad! This exciting new program gives parents/caretakers the chance to attend to some chores, or have a little time to relax before the evening starts. The program is designed to allow you to drop off your kiddos, and allow us to keep them busy while you get some time to yourself. We will do fun games, parachute activities, story time, and interactive activities with the kids while you are away. The best part of the class is that parents aren’t required to stay… in fact, we want you to drop them off and go! Advanced registration is required. Staff:

SWIM LESSON TIPS & INFO AQUATICS

• The pools are maintained between 78° – 82° Fahrenheit. • In the case of rain, swim lessons will not be canceled (unless lightning has been seen). • If your child does not pass to the next level right away, don’t be discouraged! All children learn at their own pace. It is not uncommon for a child to remain in the same class for multiple sessions before graduating to the next level. • Please read the course description carefully. It is important to register you child for the proper class. Take the time to read the prerequisites. Placing your child in the correct class is crucial for his or her development. We always test on the first day for all levels. If your child is not in the correct level, we will try and move your child to the appropriate level depending on availability. • Some classes fill up quickly; if the classes are full please ask to be placed on the wait list. You will be contacted if space becomes available. • In most cases enrollment is limited to a minimum of four and a maximum of seven swimmers per instructor. When necessary students may be moved to an earlier or later class time. • At the time of registration you are welcome to make a request for a specific instructor, but please take note that our instructors rotate among different class levels and times. Due to the large number of classes we offer, we cannot guarantee that we can meet your request, but we will try our best. • The Managers record and make changes to your child’s records so that we can keep track of students’ progress. If the instructor passes your child, we will automatically transfer your child to the correct level. • We are not able to accommodate make-up classes.

FOAM ROLL/STRETCH & CONDITIONING Adults

Relieve tight muscles, improve range of motion and daily function with foam rolling, stretching and corrective exercise patterns. Foam rolling is a muscle-releasing technique in which you roll the tight muscle on a hard, cylindrical foam roller to increase blood flow to the area and reduce inflammation.  Stretching increases blood flow and range of motion, which helps joints stay aligned and muscles move more effectively. Corrective exercise is a systematic approach to identify and develop a more optimal postural and movement strategy.  In this class we will combine these fitness tools to help you move from where you are to a more ideal place of movement and posture.

Ages 11 years & up

H.I.I.T. RELEASE (High Intensity Interval Training) High intensity interval training is all about more results in less time. With short bursts of intense cardio and strength work (at your level) followed by rest or active recovery, the metabolic response turns your cells into fat burning machines. Just 20 minutes of your best effort leaves times for the all-important core plus 15-20 minutes of tension relieving deep stretches and fascia release with tennis balls (surprisingly effective)! Come sweat it out and walk away feeling awesome! *​​If you haven’t exercised in a long time, a few weeks of consistent walking or similar exercise is recommended first.

I am aware that serious accidents and injuries occasionally occur during recreational pursuits such as the Activity. In consideration of participation in the Activity, I knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks arising therefrom, and on behalf of myself, my heirs and assignees, release the City of Benicia, its elected officials, officers, agents, employees and volunteers from any and all claims, liens, damages, lawsuits, or liability for property damage, injury or death, resulting from, and arising out of, or in any way connected with my or my minor child/children’s participation in the Activity. I agree and acknowledge that this Waiver and Release From Liability/Assumption of Risk shall apply even in the event that I or my minor child suffer death, personal injury, or property damage as a result of passive or active negligence on the part of the City of Benicia, its elected officials, officers, agents, employees, or volunteers of the City (with the exception of sole, active negligence or willful misconduct). In the event that the individual participating in the Activity is a minor, I certify that I am his/her parent or legal guardian, and I give my permission for him/her to participate in the Activity.

I will pay for all medical treatment which I or said minor may require. Use of Participant Photographs/Video In addition to the foregoing, I give consent to the City of Benicia Parks and Community Services Department or any other media agency authorized by the City of Benicia, to photograph or video me (or minor on whose behalf I am signing this waiver), and use such photographs/video footage in brochures, newspapers or other forms of media describing City of Benicia activities.
