Active Stoughton for Life (AS4L)

One of the main goals of the Stoughton Parks and Recreation Department is to create healthy lifestyles. A proven way to create healthy lifestyles is through physical activity and sport. Active Stoughton for Life (AS4L) is a movement to improve physical activity and sport in Stoughton. AS4L uses a scientific model called the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model as its framework. Physical literacy is the foundation of LTAD.

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is defined as the ability, confidence, and desire to be physically active for life. ABILITY refers to competency in basic movement skills and an overall fitness that allows individuals to engage in a variety of games and activities. This outcome is achieved through a mix of informal play and intentional teaching of movement skills, among them running, balancing, hopping, skipping, jumping, dodging, gliding, falling, lifting, swimming, kicking, throwing and a range of skills that require general hand-eye coordination. CONFIDENCE is knowing that you have the ability to play sports or enjoy other physical activities. It is the result of programs and venues that are inclusive of people with differing abilities, and the support and encouragement from parents, guardians, coaches, administrators, teammates, and peers throughout the development process. DESIRE is the intrinsic enthusiasm for physical activity, whether in organized or unstructured formats, in traditional or alternative sport. This result is achieved through early positive experiences that are fun and motivate children to do their best.

Developing Physical Literacy

Developing physical literacy is a building block approach that follows this direction:

Similar to the reasoning behind why children are taught to count when they begin school before they are taught addition and subtraction and why addition and subtraction is taught before calculus, the same rationale is behind developing physical literacy. These basic fundamental movement skills are needed to participate in a variety of physical activity later in life.

Volunteers are encouraged to visit their adopted sign once or twice a month to pull weeds, remove dead leaves, and perform general cleaning of the flower beds. Volunteers should make every effort to water as necessary. Parks staff will water planting beds as work schedule permits.

River Trail Extension The trail extension project has been out for bid twice this year and we have not received a bid that could get the project done under budget. We are exploring other ways to get the project done and we may need to budget more money in 2019 to complete it. The trail extension would connect from the current trail at Amundson Park near the disc golf course. Stoughton Hospital has a trail on their property that will connect the trail extension to Ridge Street and it is open to the public.

Nordic Ridge Park Nordic Ridge Park is now open. The park includes a splash pad, shelter, and green space for an athletic field. The splash pad is open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm until Labor Day. The shelter and splash pad are powered using solar energy. We would like to thank the Stoughton Rotary Club and local business for providing funding for the tables and benches at the park.

Please call or stop by our office for more information.

Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan Update We are currently updating our Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP). A CORP provides a roadmap and working tool for our department for five years. The planning process includes gaining input from the public to find out who is using the park system, what users like and don’t like, and what we should plan for the future. An important tool is a community survey which can be taken online at this link - https://www.surveymonkey. com/r/LJNGS2N. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to finish.

Norse Park Outdoor Skating Rink

The skating rink at Norse Park will be open again this winter. The open and close dates are dependent on the weather. The warming house is open weekdays from 5-8 PM and weekends from 12-4 PM.

Fill the Gap Fill the Gap provides young people with educational support, career development opportunities, and positive role models for academic and professional success. This program helps young people develop the skills to compete successfully in higher education and careers of their choosing.

Kids Kick Healthy Living The Kids Kick Healthy Living Program works to encourage healthy habits. We are implementing new programming and snack options to help children make better discussion when it comes to eating and living healthy.

3D Printing via the MakerBot MakerBot brings the future to your desktop with affordable, open source 3D printers. MakerBot is our own little factory where you can make almost anything you can imagine. This technology has the potential to transform the way we think about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, and to inspire more young people to pursue those careers.

While the proper technical skills are important, today’s employers are looking for employees with the ability to communicate effectively, work on a team, resolve conflicts, handle ethical dilemmas, and manage their time in an effective manner. Covered topics: Creating a positive work ethic The importance of dependability, initiative, and interpersonal skills MakMaking a positive first impression Tips for mastering the paperwork (applications and resumes) Succeeding in a job interview Keeping a job once you get it

Computer Repair The Computer Repair Program provides a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where young people work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology, and once the work is done kids get to keep the computer.

Tutoring and Mentoring One of our missions is to help children overcome barriers to achievement in school and promote academic success. Each child does homework with his or her tutor and receives any extra help he or she needs in the fundamentals, especially reading or math.

These programs are ongoing beginning in September and running through the school year. Participates are encouraged to join at all times. There is no cost for these programs.
