Hello, Recreators – Spring is normally a season of growth and exciting changes after winter releases its icy grip on all of us. This spring the opportunity for growth and resurgence is higher than any spring many of us has ever experienced. In preparation, the Recreation Department has cautiously planned for numerous programs and services to be released from some of the restrictions COVID-19 placed on us. I am excited to share our spring program offerings in this edition of the Recreator. I think about the hundreds of memories that were replaced over the last year with a pandemic; the nine year-olds adventuring together on a Camp FunQuest field trip, friends meeting up to play in a basketball league, children swimming for the first time, an adult learning to dance, and so many more.   When spring emerges this year, I want to see bats hitting balls in our adult softball league; I want to hear the joy in children’s screams while learning to ice skate at EPIC; I want to feel the satisfaction of a good sweat in my favorite cross training class; I want to smell the delicious foods from our cooking classes. Consider this your invitation to join a recreation program and let us be a part of your memories this spring. Spring is indeed a time of growth and renewal, and my hope is this year will bring some badly needed refreshment for us all. Let’s make some memories, Recreators!

FROM THE

PARKS & RECREATION BOARD

Camp FunQuest programs serve an important role in our community, giving kids a place to play, learn and grow in a safe environment. Camp FunQuest offers weekly programs during summer as well as other Poudre School District breaks and school out days throughout the year. Programs are for kids ages 4-16 years, and feature a variety of exciting activities. Childcare options were limited this summer, due to COVID-19, but recreation staff worked on a myriad of solutions to keep campers and parents, safe and happy. When children were unable to attend school in-person, Camp FunQuest provided a full-week remote learning classroom experience. Campers were provided with: instructional assistance by childcare staff, inclusion support, individual and small group opportunities for self-directed art and science activities, and free time to play on the playground or gymnasium during breaks from classes. Recreation staff worked on many COVID-19 safety protocols to ensure the safety of campers. Some protocols include: staggered drop-off and pick-up outdoors, daily temperature checks and health screens, electronic (no contact) sign-ins, wearing of masks by staff and children at all times, and increased hand washing, sanitizing of materials and disinfecting of any shared equipment. This summer, Camp FunQuest will run programs from Northside Aztlan Community Center and Foothills Activity Center, offering families flexible options. Camp FunQuest also has a newly modified registration process in order to assist families in planning their childcare budget, and providing them with a comprehensive understanding of what camp will look like before they commit. 4 fcgov.com/recreator

Families are able to pre-register for summer camp for $30 starting Thursday, February 11. With this pre-registration, families will be invited to attend monthly information meetings where recreation staff will provide information on COVID-19 protocols, camp policies and procedures, and planned weekly themes prior to the start of camp. Beginning in April, pre-registered families will be able to select the camp weeks their children will attend by paying a $20 per week deposit, which will be applied to full camp fees. Remaining camp fees will be due monthly throughout the summer. Families may enroll in individual camp weeks at any time throughout the duration of summer, even if they miss the introductions held in spring, however it is encouraged to pre-register to ensure your child’s space is reserved. Space in the camps is limited and participants must register in advance online at fcgov.com/recreator or at any recreation facility. As a reminder, reduced fee options are available for income-qualified individuals and families, more information is available on page 6. I hope you will take a look at all Camp FunQuest has to offer and make plans to join in the fun soon! Mike Novell, Parks & Recreation Board Member

ICE SKATING

ICE SKATING Learn to Skate USA Anyone enrolled in the Learn to Skate program at EPIC is eligible to sign up for membership in the United States Figure Skating (USFS) program membership. This is an optional registration offered for an additional fee giving the participant access to membership privileges in USFS. Membership with USFS is not required to participate in the Learn to Skate program at EPIC. Additional information is available at learntoskateusa.com and during all Learn to Skate classes. General Information All Ice programs are held at EPIC unless otherwise noted. Lessons are taught by Certified Professional Skater Association (P.S.A.) instructors and are in compliance with the United States Figure Skating Association. Parents may observe lessons from the upstairs bleachers; it is distracting and creates an obstruction for skaters and coaches to have parents at the gate or in the hockey boxes. Parents are welcome to skate with their child during the 15-minute practice time. Individuals are not allowed on the ice with their shoes on. EPIC’s rental skates are available free of charge. Our student to instructor ratio is one instructor for every 10 students. Any Snowplow Sam, Basic 1, or Basic 2 classes greater than 10 students include an additional assistant. Minimum for classes is 5 students; class levels may be combined to meet this minimum. Skating lesson are 30-minutes in length with a 15-minute practice time, which may be before or after the lesson depending on scheduling. Instructors have time in between classes to talk to parents and address their concerns. Be aware that some levels need to be repeated to master skills. Please see your coach with any concerns. The first day of each lesson is generally termed as Level Evaluation Day. On this day, instructors evaluate all participants in their assigned classes to make certain they have been correctly enrolled; if there is a problem, the instructor will discuss the best course of action with the parent. Students are moved if there is space available in the appropriate level of class. There are no make-up lessons for missed skating classes. If the class you wish to register for is filled, you may place your name on a paid waiting list. We attempt to accommodate the demand for skating lessons by adding new classes, however they may not be at the same time/day as the waiting list class. If you are unable to attend the last day of classes for testing, request a progress card from your coach on the last day you attend. Proper Attire Includes: •Helmet (not provided; required for Snowplow Sam 1-4 and strongly recommended for beginners). •Gloves (thin, not ski mittens). •Fleece or light weight jacket.

SPORTS

Youth Sports General Information Registration closes approximately two weeks prior to the listed start date of the program. Teams are split up by staff at random, not by special requests, or registration dates. Special requests are not guaranteed. Coach meetings are scheduled 1-2 weeks before the program start date. Coaches contact teams directly to establish practice dates and times after the coach meeting. Tournaments are only played in the middle school divisions of all leagues, except for the bowl games in tackle football. Outdoor leagues practice on a first-come, first-serve basis at the location (or nearby park with approval from Recreation staff) indicated when registering. Indoor leagues scheduled practice times and locations are determined by staff prior to the season. Teams practice 1-2 times per week based on availability. In the event of gym cancelations, teams may practice in locations that differ from registration site. Coaching Criteria All youth sports coaches must know the fundamentals and rules of the sport for which they are coaching. Coach trainings are offered to volunteers; volunteer coaches are expected to attend these meetings to enhance coaching abilities and know the rules and philosophy of the program.

All youth sport coaches who volunteer with the City of Fort Collins must participate in a background check conducted by the City on an annual basis and complete a concussion certification before being approved to coach in any youth sport league. Background checks remain confidential and are valid for one year. Individuals are not permitted to volunteer/instruct until a completed background check has been received and approved by the City of Fort Collins. The City of Fort Collins reserves the right to deny anyone to coach based on the results found in the background check, or any coach that the City does not believe will follow our recreational philosophies. Volunteer coaches are expected to always act in the best interests of young athletes and agree to follow the guidelines and polices of the City of Fort Collins Recreation Department. For more information about coaching, contact 970.416.4297. Online Sports Schedules & League Rules All youth sports schedules and league rules are located online through Team Sideline. See page 57 for more information.
