Welcome to Winter/Spring 2014 The new $59 Annual Youth Pass has been a resounding success! The uptake on the Annual Adult Pass option has also been very very strong. If a parent buys an annual pass, just $32.67 per month ($392/ year) and we do offer it on a monthly payment program without any additional costs, all of the parent’s children 18 years of age and under receive a FREE Annual Youth Pass. Part of the benefits of this new pass program also provides a 20% discount to the pass holder, both Youth and Adult pass holders, on all registered programs (just a few minor exceptions). There are some other great benefits to the Adult Pass holder including: • Unlimited access to all drop in programs such as swimming, skating, weight room, & fitness classes (see brochure for details.) • 25 free locker tokens • 1 admission ticket for the New Year’s Eve event • 5 free non-prime time squash court bookings • 2 free skate sharpenings by HP Blades at Panorama • Free Elder College membership for the pass holder and spouse It is great to see the community has been so interested in this. The Commission as I reported in the fall brochure is very concerned about the latest research that confirms: • Only 7% of Canada’s youth meet physical activity guidelines of at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per day; • Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years; • Canadian children and youth get an average of 7 hours and 48 minutes of screen time per day. Another growing trend in Canadian children and youth is the very significant lack of unstructured play time. Unstructured play is critical for healthy development. In fact, our camps and swim lessons have periods of time set aside for unstructured play such as 15 minutes of free play time in the lazy river for all children seven years and older following swimming lessons! Unstructured play provides benefits that builds creativity, builds problem solving skills, builds social skills, builds physical development, builds capacity to work through emotions; in short unstructured play builds a healthy child or youth. Pick up your Annual Pass now and mark the calendar for your family fun nights at Panorama to have some healthy unstructured play. My family and I love enjoying the benefits of the pass. Live well.

The Aqua Spin classes are similar to a spinning class but take place on a Hydrorider bike that has been built for the water. Cycling in the water causes less impact on your back and joints and the constant water massage enhances circulation and increases blood flow. Bike classes are limited to 13 participants and are available on a first-come, first served basis. See below on how to reserve Spin bikes. Aqua Yoga takes the principles and movements of Yoga and adapts them to the water environment. You feel virtually weightless in water so the stretches and movements can be accomplished without strain. It makes exercising safer for many people; especially those with weight problems, injuries or who are pregnant.

Deep Power, All Classes will provide you with a challenging workout with little to no impact on your joints! Start each class Shallow, Combo, with 5-10 min of warm-up, 30-35 min of cardio and 10-15 min of strength and stretching. Aqua Boot Camp Light and Easy Aquafit

This exercise program is suitable for people who have recovered from an injury and/or surgery, live with arthritis or are currently sedentary. Our instructors will take you through exercises that work on range of motion, flexibility and light walking. Great peer support and social interaction.

To reserve Spin bikes: Option 1: Pay the drop-in rate or swipe your active pass and pick up your ticket from reception up to 30 minutes prior to the class start time. Option 2: To reserve in advance, book a bike 60 minutes or more prior to the start of the class online at www.panoramarecreation.ca. A $2+gst reservation fee per bike per class applies.

Swimming & Aquatic Activities Daylin Robson Daylin Robson has been working at Panorama for four years as a lifeguard and swim instructor. Daylin wanted to become a lifeguard and swim instructor because he had swam competitively when he was younger. He thought it would be a good idea to get a job that requires excellent swimming skills. Daylin’s favorite part about being a lifeguard is the knowledge and practice that he has gained though his years here at Panorama. From pulling people out of the water who are in distress, to major first aid injuries, he has gained a wealth of knowledge of how to help people when they need it most. Daylin finds this part of the job very rewarding. As a swim instructor Daylin’s favorite levels to teach are the preschool levels; “you get to play lots of fun games while teaching the basics of how to swim”. Daylin is presently working on completing his Associates Degree of General Sciences at Camosun College. After Daylin graduates, he will apply for Pharmacy School to either the University of Alberta or University of British Columbia. Of course Daylin’s preference is UBC because it would be nice for him to still be close to home. Before Daylin makes the move, he wants to make the most of the summer to go camping, wake boarding, skim boarding, boating, float down rivers, and have fun with friends! Here are Daylin’s goals for the next couple of years. “My goals are entirely revolved around school and basically to do well and to complete my degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Maybe even further my education by gaining a PharmD degree, but that is a little down the road. It will be a very big change and hopefully be an exciting experience altogether. My aquatic goal is to be able to work at an aquatic facility while I am enrolled in full time University. This will be a big challenge of time management, but I think it will pay off in the long run.” Very ambitious! Way to go Daylin! On Daylin’s limited time he is biking. “There is a new bike park near my home in North Saanich I like to visit time to time, but most of my biking is done on the road and close to my neighborhood. I have always wanted to dive around here, so I plan to get my divers certificate in the near future.” One thing that most people don’t know about Daylin is that he is a volunteer for the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue. He started in December of 2012 at station # 36 which is located at Canoe Cove Marina near Swartz Bay. The entire station is completely volunteer based and provides search and rescue services to the southern gulf islands and most of the peninsula whenever called upon. Daylin mentions that he finds it is very rewarding and fast pace. Lastly, Daylin has a swimming tip for everyone; “my swimming tip is that if you like to swim or if you want to pursue something related to swimming, lifeguarding and swim instructing is an awesome way to show what you know and how to help people when it comes to swimming and safety”. Thank you Daylin and good luck with your goals! See you at the pool.

Injury is the leading killer of Canadian children and youth. 50% of all deaths from injury are from brain injuries.

30% of all traumatic brain injuries are sustained by children and youth, many of them while participating in sports and recreational activities.

Remember, most head injuries that occur while skating are not accidents, but predictable, preventable events. Be a role model! As parents, coaches and educators, it is important to model safe, responsible behaviours like wearing a properly fitted helmet during skating and other sporting activities.

We strongly recommend that everyone wear a helmet! If you forget your helmet, feel free to borrow one of ours. We have over 100 helmets in various styles and sizes to choose from.

Skating Tips!

Questions? Ask one of our knowledgeable skate attendants.

March before you glide. Ice marching can be a good precursor to skating because it helps beginner skaters gain balance and familiarity with the ice. Learn to stop. This is one of the most important ice skating tips for beginners. Many skaters start out learning maneuvers first, then learning to stop later.

Skating & Arena Activities Sarah Russell My name is Sarah Russell. I have been coaching skating lessons at Panorama for three years but have an extensive on ice background prior to this. I am a figure skater and have been involved in the sport competitively from a young age. Recently I have started speed skating, and I’m always ready to try something new on the ice. I’m now able to give back to my community by passing on the skills that have given me a great sense of happiness for many years.

When I am not coaching lessons I can be seen floating around at many of the drop in ice times such as the adult skate, Extreme teen skate or weekend Everyone Welcomes. One of my favourite things is to see people as their skating skills progress and they become more confident in their skating abilities. I look forward to seeing you on the ice soon!
