2018 Summer Welcome Letter Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Port Washington Rec Guide! I would like to introduce myself as the new Recreation Director for the City of Port Washington. Although this position is new to me, I am not new to the Parks & Recreation Department. I have been fortunate enough to work with this fantastic department for the past two years as the Recreation Supervisor. It has been a privilege to serve our wonderful community and provide high-quality programming. I cannot thank everyone enough for being so welcoming and the kind words of support. I am proud to lead this department and will do my very best to continue to make strides in improving the health, wellbeing and quality of life of area residents. With the summer just around the corner, I invite you to take a closer look at all the upcoming programs, classes and events that we have to offer. From our Yoga & More classes and workshops, Summer Park, Port Cheer, Parent-Tot Swim to Summer Theatre and Adult Self-Defense I am certain you will find something that is perfect for you or your little ones. It is the Port Washington Parks & Recreation Department’s honor and privilege to continue to serve you and we greatly thank you for your continued support! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or suggestions. I look forward to seeing you at Friday Night Flicks, Pirates’ Hollow Community Waterpark, Beer Gardens and through many of our programs and events this summer. Respectully,

General Information Resident Definition Persons living in the City of Port Washington and are therefore contributing to the tax base through which the Department is subsidized. In cases where the program utilizes a Port Washington/Saukville School facility, a resident shall be defined as persons living within that District. Fair Share Statement Port Washington residents make a significant contribution to the operation of the Parks and Recreation Department. City property taxes are the primary source of funds necessary to operate the Department. Regardless of the level of use, each city property owner contributes equally. The Fair Share concept is intended to assess non-residents an equalized fee designed to recover operating costs and where appropriate, capital debt costs. Capital debt costs are those associated with the design and construction of park and recreation facilities which require borrowing and a subsequent annual debt service. The capital cost per household will therefore be added to the non-resident fee.

Waiting List A waiting list will be started once the program has reached the maximum number of participants. Payment is not accepted and participation is not guaranteed at this time. If a vacancy occurs, participants will be called in the order of registration and full payment will need to be made prior to attending the program. Age Guidelines Please do not request to have children placed in a class they do not belong in. All age requirements are set to benefit children by providing a safe and uniform learning environment.

Concussion Form The Port Washington Parks & Recreation Department requires all participants to review the Concussion Awareness Information on page 29 Prior to registration. Certain programs will require signed concussion forms prior to participation. If registering online, please be sure to read and check the waiver box.

Debunking the Urban Food Cycle An Introduction to Plant Based Cooking Our modern day world has grown to offer food as convenience for us.

Swim Lessons Swim lessons at Pirates’ Hollow follow the American Red Cross curriculum. Along with teaching children how to be safer in and around water, we also introduce them to life skills of self-confidence, perseverance, and courage. We are committed to providing an environment where your child feels safe enough to try new things and accomplish goals. All of our instructors are Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certified and lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross. Please review all of the swim lesson information and level descriptions carefully to ensure you enroll your child in the correct level! Private Swim Lessons Our private swimming lessons give swimmers individual, focused attention, allowing them to learn swimming and safety skills quicker than in traditional group classes. Sign up for private swim lessons will begin on May 14. To sign up please fill out the private swim lesson request form found at the Parks & Rec Office and online at Once the form is returned, arrangements for private lessons may be made with the individual instructor through the Parks & Recreation Department. The instructor will call to schedule lessons on an agreeable time and date, starting with the first person on the sign-up list. Payment for private lessons will be due at the beginning of the week prior to the start of the first lesson. No lesson may take place without payment prior to the first lesson. Please choose schedules with instructors wisely. Cancellations must be received more than 24 hours in advance. Lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance will still be assessed the entire fee to compensate the instructor for their time. Should an instructor need to cancel, the lesson will be rescheduled with no penalty to the swimmer.

What are the prerequisites for each level? The prerequisite for each level is the successful demonstration of skills from the preceding level. The skills are listed in each level’s description on the following page. When should I anticipate my child passing into the next level? We advise you NOT to anticipate your child passing. Swim lessons are not like school and students progress at different rates. It is not unusual for your child to repeat the same level several times. Try not to compare your child with others, instead concentrate on their ability to physically and mentally perform each skill. If your child is registered for the wrong class, transfers will be made only on a space availability basis. Swim Lesson Information There are no make-up lessons held due to inclement weather, unless there are less than 6 total sessions held. Classes could be cancelled due to the following reasons: 1) moderate to heavy rain, 2) thunder OR lightening, 3) air temperature below 65°F, 4) mechanical or facility issues. Every effort will be taken to make decisions on cancellations one half hour before each lesson starting time. Weather can be unpredictable and changes quickly, please call the Parks & Rec Office for cancellation information at (262) 284-5881.

Facility & Park Rentals

Rotary Park: Rotary Park has become one of the most scenic parts of an already breathtaking lakefront. Centered in the park is a beautiful gazebo, which features a panoramic view of the City’s iconic lighthouse. The park is a perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. An integral part of Rotary Park is the Commercial Fisherman’s Memorial. The memorial serves as tribute to those who worked at one time or another on boats and docks or in related work such as the markets, processing plants, offices, etc. Rotary Park is featured as part of our 1.2 mile Harborwalk; you can walk either direction from Rotary Park, past many downtown businesses, to either the North or South Beaches as well as to Upper Lake Park.

Upper Lake Park: Upper Lake Park offers one of the best views of Lake Michigan in the area. Only 83 steps separate Upper Lake Park from the North Beach. Any one of the multiple overlook areas offers unobstructed views of Lake Michigan and the city of Port Washington. Upper Lake Park is home to numerous activities throughout the year, some of these include: our annual Fish Day celebration, 5K races, car shows, and other community events. The park also offers a walking loop and plenty of greenspace for any year-round activities.

Veterans Memorial Park: The Bandshell may be one of the most iconic features in Port Washington. It is the background for gatherings throughout the year, including Memorial Day and 4th of July services. It was also used for a speech by then-president Ronald Reagan. Featured as part of our Harborwalk, it is within walking distance of the lighthouse, North Beach, and all of the downtown businesses. Summer concerts performed on Sundays by the City Band and 2 Friday Night Flicks are free to the public.

Concussion Information Port Washington Parks and Recreation Parent/Athlete Concussion Awareness Information A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF A CONCUSSION? Signs and symptoms of a concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If an athlete reports one or more symptoms of a concussion listed below after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, she/he should be kept out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for a concussion, says she/he is symptom-free and it’s okay to return to play. SIGNS OBSERVED BY COACHING STAFF


Appears dazed or stunned

Headache or “pressure” in head

Is confused about assignment or position

Nausea or vomiting

Forgets an instruction

Balance problems or dizziness

Is unsure of game, score, or opponent

Double or blurry vision

Moves clumsily

Sensitivity to light

Answers questions slowly

Sensitivity to noise

Loses consciousness (even briefly)

Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy

Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes

Concentration or memory problems

Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall


Can’t recall events after hit or fall

Not “feeling right” or “feeling down”

CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body she/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:     

Convulsions, seizures, or slurred speech Cannot recognize people or places Becomes increasingly confused or agitated Has unusual behavior Loses consciousness for any amount of time

    

One pupil larger than the other Is drowsy or cannot be awakened A headache that gets worse Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination Repeated vomiting nausea

WHY SHOULD AN ATHLETE REPORT THEIR SYMPTOMS? If an athlete has a concussion, his/her brain needs time to heal. While an athlete’s brain is still healing she/he is much more likely to have another concussion. Repeat concussions can increase the time it takes to recover. In rare cases, repeat concussions in young athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to their brain. They can even be fatal.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOU ATHLETE HAS A CONCUSSION? If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, remove the athlete from play and seek medical attention. Do no try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for a concussion, says she/he is symptom-free and is okay to return to play. Rest is key to helping an athlete recover from a concussion. Exercising or activities that involve a lot of concentration, such as studying, working on the computer, or playing video games, may cause concussion symptoms to reappear or get worse. After a concussion, returning to sports and school is a gradual process that should be carefully managed and monitored by a health care professional. As a parent and as an athlete it is important to recognize the signs, symptoms, and behaviors of concussions. By signing the registration form you are stating that you understand the importance of recognizing and responding to the signs, symptoms, and behaviors of a concussion or head injury. This form has been reformatted from the Center of Disease Control’s Heads Up Concussion in Youth Sports Program. Please visit for more information.
