SECTION | SUBSECTION POLICIES CONDUCT ORDINANCE

PHOTO POLICY

In 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners adopted a comprehensive Conduct Ordinance that relates to the use of the parks and property owned, operated, maintained, or controlled by Palatine Park District. A copy of this ordinance can be viewed at palatineparks.org under the "District Information" tab.

Palatine Park District may take photographs of participants enrolled in Park District programs, special events, or people on Park District properties and parks. These photographs may be used in print, online, or other promotional materials and are for Park District use only.

PARTICIPANT CODE OF CONDUCT

A.D.A. COMPLIANCE

In addition to the Conduct Ordinance of 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners has also approved Administrative Policy 2.13.1, Code of Conduct. This code of conduct is the minimum expected behavior of every participant to ensure the safety and positive experience of all involved. The District uses a three pillar positive behavior program as the platform to define the expected behavior of all participants. This platform is aligned and consistent with the program used within the local elementary schools to create consistency among children and parents whether at school or play at the park district. This Code of Conduct is also aligned and tied to the District’s Antibullying policy and the District’s Participant Disciplinary Policy when rules and expectations of the positive behavior program are violated. A copy of this policy can be viewed online at palatineparks.org under the "District Information" tab.

Palatine Park District intends to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act by making reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. If you have any questions about the Park District’s compliance policy please contact one of our A.D.A. compliance officers: Ed Tynczuk (facilities), 148 W. Illinois Avenue, 847.705.5130, etynczuk@palatineparks.org or Donelda Danz (programs), 250 E. Wood Street, 847.496.6203, ddanz@palatineparks.org.

CLASS DISMISSAL GUIDELINES

All children 11 and under are to remain in the classroom until a parent or authorized person comes into the classroom to pick them up. Parents are required to sign their child in and out of each class. Parents of children ages 7–11 may opt to complete a Class Dismissal Permission Slip. This will allow the child to be released at the end of the scheduled class without a parent present. These forms are available from your child’s instructor. A separate form will be required for each class attended and every new session.

ADULT SUPERVISION

When not participating in a class, children under 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult while in Park District facilities.

CHILD ENDANGERMENT

Any authorized person who exhibits signs of an impaired condition due to alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to leave a program site with the child/children.

SMOKING ORDINANCE

Smoking or any use of a tobacco product, including electronic cigarettes, is prohibited within 50 feet of all entrances to Palatine Park District buildings, in all Park District facilities, in all wooded areas on Park District property, and in all other locations where signs are posted prohibiting smoking. Smoking is allowed at Palatine Hills Golf Course and on the north side of the Clubhouse deck. See Section 2.36, Code of Conduct, which can be found on palatineparks.org. “Facilities” include all structures on Palatine Park District property including, but not limited to, swimming pools; skate, dog, and disc golf parks; riding arenas; shelters; gazebos; fishing pier; playgrounds; athletic fields; and amphitheater/bowl.

NWSRA provides outstanding opportunities through recreation for people with disabilities. Palatine Park District is a member of a 17 park district cooperative which forms the Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA). The NWSRA team of full-time Therapeutic Recreation professionals and trained part-time staff offers quality year-round recreation for individuals of all ages with disabilities. NWSRA activities provide opportunities for children and adults with disabilities to have fun, make friends, be included, learn new things, go new places, and celebrate their lives. After school, evening, and weekend programs feature sports, games, arts and crafts, fitness, cooking, drama, and more. Camps, trips, and special events are planned throughout the year. NWSRA provides assistance to individuals who wish to participate in their local park district programs. Indicate on the registration form if any accommodations are needed to successfully participate in the program. The Park District staff will contact NWSRA for assistance.

SECTIONYOUTH | SUBSECTION & TEEN NEW GOT CONFIDENCE & COMMUNICATION?

NEW GOT HAPPINESS?

In a world where everyone is looking down at their tablet or phone, our youth are evolving into a generation with limited skills in communication and confidence. Communication is more than a text, email, video game, or hanging out on social media. Through an incredibly fun and high energy workshop, kids will have the chance to improve their verbal and listening skills through communication and confidence boosting games such as Bubble Gum Bonanza, Ticket Booth, Cotton Candy Catastrophe, Pencil Me In, Clothespin Chaos, What's Different, and Whoopee Cushion Caper. Thrilling group games are the ultimate way to elicit communication from children—even adults love these activities! The best part is when you notice communication and confidence generalize into a child's real day-to-day environment after departing class. Don't be surprised if they volunteer to get up in front of a crowd more, have more confidence when test taking, and just have a bit more pep in their step.

Is happiness genetic? While biology does play a large role in happiness, we still have lots of room to grow our children's happiness level in their day-to-day environment! When we are happy, everything in life gets a little bit easier. How can we reduce any negative emotions that may pop up and garner more powerful feelings like positivity? This class is appropriate for children who are currently very happy or just want to feel a little happier every day.

Research shows that children who have opportunities to build communication and confidence display higher skills in these areas later in life. Kids will learn the hottest tips in building communication and confidence from a Certified Professional Life Coach. These skills are always a work in progress, but this will be a transformational kick off. Treats and prizes included.

GOT SELF-ESTEEM & LEADERSHIP? As parents we want the best for our children—friends, sports, vacations, education, teachers, clothes, technology—the list goes on and on. What about the gifts of high self-esteem and leadership? Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself and a feeling that you can handle life every day. It's believing in your talents and that you have value to offer the universe. When you possess this, it becomes easier to be a leader. Through creative expression in an incredibly fun workshop, kids will have the chance to cultivate self-worth and won't even realize they are working on self-esteem. Children will play interactive self-esteem booster games like Potato Chip Champ, Lollipop Marathon, King's Throne, Balloon Bust, Billboard This, Ten Seconds, Compliment Café, Money Madness, Campaign Craze, and Toy of Me. A child of any age would love these games! Kid's emotional "buckets" will get filled and will likely be overflowing with confidence when they depart this class. Don't be surprised if there is a bit more "pep in their step" after this workshop. Research shows that children who have opportunities to build self-esteem as a child display higher leadership skills later in life. Kids will learn the hottest tips in building self-esteem and being happy leaders from a Certified Professional Life Coach. Self-esteem is always a work in progress, but this will be a transformational kick off for your child.

THRILLS AND CHILLS Making and eating ice cream is a fun way to introduce early physics and chemistry teachings to children. Kids can become an expert on this beloved treat as we make a batch of homemade ice cream. Plus, we'll explore the science of the amusement park treat, Dippin' Dots, before sitting down for the most outrageous ice cream eating contest in town. Did anyone say brain freeze? This is a child's dream class experience that puts the fun back into learning. Don't wear your Sunday best to this event, we will get sticky! Lots of tastings and a themed souvenir included. This class explores both chemical and industrial engineering concepts, along with how this treat evolved and even have fun with the nostalgic ice cream cone!

This is a unique program focused on the magic of the Native American theme, that helps you build a stronger relationship with your child by spending time doing fun activities together.

From October to mid-November, squads will participate in a minimum of two (and up to five) competitions. Additional practices will be scheduled during competition season. Squads will participate at State Competition the first weekend in December if a bid is earned (additional fee will be required). As in any sport, in order to cheer at all games and competitions, attendance and commitment to the team is required! We also strongly encourage all participants to enroll in tumbling classes.

This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desertdwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Sal Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee's trashy Western tale. Note: This performance contains mature situations and language, and is not suitable for children under the age of 18.

TIGER SHARKS SWIM TEAM ATHLETICS PALATINE TIGER SHARKS SWIM TEAM Palatine Tiger Sharks Swim Team is a multi-ability-level program that offers competitive opportunities, technique development, and fun for swimmers ages 6 and older. The swim team is divided into progressive groups. Open tryouts are held twice a year (in March and August). If there is still space available, new swimmers may join the team at any time throughout the year by contacting the swim office at 847.202.3240 to schedule a tryout. Team coaches make the final determination for group placement and advancement to the next level. Group sizes may be limited. Following a tryout, coaches will be able to give families approximate practice times and locations. Practice times and locations are subject to pool availability and may change. Registration is held during regular office hours at any Palatine Park District facility. All swim team registration requires a separate registration form. Non-residents are required to pay an additional fee. Families registering more than two swimmers will receive a $15 discount starting with the third swimmer. Registration fee plus the Swim Team fee are payable to the Palatine Park District by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. A separate check for escrow costs, payable to Palatine Swim Team, is required, no cash. Registration during Early Bird Registration guarantees a team t-shirt for each swimmer registered. After Early Bird Registration, a limited number of t-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional Swim Team Fees are the same for both residents and non-residents. Swim Team fees and escrow costs vary for each group. Palatine Park District registration fees do not cover all Swim Team expenses so the additional swim team fees are necessary. All fees are paid at registration. Each member of the Tiger Sharks Swim Team must be a member of Illinois Swimming and United States Swimming. • Escrow covers costs of USA/ISI Swimming (an annual cost, expiring December 31 of each year; the USA/ISI fee is nonrefundable) and of entering individual and relay events at swim meets. Any swimmer not registered with USA/ISI Swimming in the current year must pay an additional escrow fee. Unused escrow is refundable at the end of the season by contacting the swim board (escrow). • Families can offset the cost of future swim team fees by participating in the team’s ongoing fundraising opportunities. • Swim Team parents for all groups except Pre-Comp are required to volunteer during each of their child’s sessions at all Swim Team hosted meets. Failure to volunteer for any home meet will result in a charge of $100 for each meet session. • Refunds follow Palatine Park District policy (page 13).

SUSPENSION TRAINING (TRX) Originally developed in 2004 for US Navy SEALS, Suspension Training works every muscle in the body with varying degrees of body weight. Enhance your balance, coordination, range of joint movement, strength, and aerobic fitness. Appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. Small group classes allow for plenty of individual instruction. Shorter class times keep you moving to make each movement better. Suspension training has become an excellent method for building bone and muscle density, particularly in the wrists, lumbar spine, and hips. Classes are progressive in nature as participants become more agile and fit throughout the session.

SUSPENSION TRAINING ADULT

INTRODUCTION TO SUSPENSION

Progress to 45 minutes of Suspension Training (TRX) after taking Introduction or EZ Suspension. Combinations, sequences of movement, and more advanced exercises (both standing and on the floor) will keep your fitness level and endurance progressing with each class.

Try something new and make a change in your exercise and your body with 30 minutes of TRX-suspension training. Learn the basic movements and form considerations for safety and alignment while implementing a completely new exercise program.

Students will learn to enter a horse's stall and lead the horse from its stall to the arena. They will also learn to tighten the girth and adjust their stirrups, techniques to properly mount a horse, the proper dismounting procedures, and returning the horse to its stall. As students become proficient with these skills actual riding time will increase accordingly. Students and parents should also be aware that due to the nature of the horse, behaviors such as spooking, biting, kicking, bucking, and playing will occur. How to handle these situations as a rider are an integral part of horsemanship and will be addressed in lessons. Age: 7-15

PROGRAMS WITH PALATINE LIBRARY THE SANDS OF TIME

Wednesday, May 16 • 7:00pm It has been approximately 175 years since settlers first started coming to Palatine. These settlers were pioneers who came via the Great Lakes or in covered wagons from the East. Then the land was covered with native prairie and a few small groves of trees. The pioneers began planting crops and harvesting trees to build cabins. When they passed away they were buried on or near their farms. Palatine Township owns and maintains five cemeteries, four of which are pioneer cemeteries. Join us as we tell the story of the pioneers who settled Palatine.

RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS WAIVER By their very nature, many Park District programs involve body contact, substantial physical exertion, emotional stress, and/or use of equipment which represents a certain risk. It is recommended that you check with your physician prior to participating in Palatine Park District activities. Palatine Park District does not provide insurance protection for participants in Park District activities. Please read the following information carefully and be aware that in registering yourself or your minor child/ward for participation in the above program(s), you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries you or your child/ward might sustain arising out of the above program(s). I give my child permission to participate in this program, trip, or activity and hereby waive, release and forever discharge any and all claims against the Palatine Park District or its commissioners, employees, or volunteers for damages and/or injuries to the registrant, which may arise from participation in Palatine Park District programs. EMERGENCY TREATMENT: A minor may not be treated, even in an emergency, except when, in the opinion of the attending physician, a life is in the balance. Written consent is required for all treatment given in any hospital emergency room/center. Consent of a parent or legal guardian is necessary for unmarried minors, under 18, except in cases of extreme emergencies. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: As a parent and/or legal guardian, I do herewith authorize the treatment by a qualified and licensed medical doctor of the above minor in the event of a medical emergency which, in the opinion of the attending physician may endanger his/her life, cause disfigurement, physical impairment or undue discomfort if delayed. This authority is granted only after a reasonable effort has been made to reach me. The release form is completed and signed of my own free will with the purpose of authorizing medical treatment under emergency circumstances in my absence. Please list specific medical allergies, medicines, or other conditions on a separate piece of paper to be attached to this form. Release and Hold Harmless Statement on registration form must be signed. PARTICIPATION WILL BE DENIED if the signature of adult participant or parent/guardian and date are not on this waiver. My signature, or my guardian’s signature if I’m under 18, indicates that I HAVE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE REFUND POLICY AND WAIVER and understand it is required to take part in Park District programs.
