Message from the Mayor

Message from the Mayor Welcome to the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Fall/Winter Recreation Guide. Our municipality delivers a diverse range of recreation programs and services for every age, at facilities including Meadow Park Sports Centre, Whistler Public Library, Whistler’s schools, Spruce Grove Field House, Lost Lake PassivHaus and the Whistler Youth Centre. This year we have a new account and bookings system to manage all online recreation program and class registration as well as facility bookings. The system makes it easy to search for programs and classes, keeps your family accounts together on one screen, and tracks your activity history. The software will have additional functions added in the future. Children, from infants onwards, will enjoy parent and baby fitness classes, swimming classes and musical programs. Older children can choose from cooking, science, dancing, ballet, skating, and hockey. Teenagers will find a range of activities at The YC (Whistler’s Youth Centre), including pool, table tennis, skateboarding on the indoor mini ramp and scheduled activities. At Meadow Park Sports Centre there are programs such as Youth on Weights and a variety of aquatic programs. All Whistler students in Grades 5 or 10 receive a free pass to Meadow Park Sports Centre, valid from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019. Adults can choose from dozens of activities including Zumba, squash, TRX, yoga, weight lifting, as well as Nordic Walking for Bone Fitness and Gentle Fit for Seniors. Just steps from Whistler village, Lost Lake’s Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trails stay open into the evening and offer stunning mountain views. This winter I hope to see you enjoying our recreation programs: whether outside in Whistler’s great outdoors, taking part in indoor classes, or working up a sweat at Meadow Park Sports Centre.

Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden

Financial Assistance Programs Grade 5/10 Program

Flexreg programs currently are NOT available for online registration.

Children under 7 years of age must be within arms reach of an adult (16 years +) in the water and in swimwear to a maximum ratio of 1 adult to 3 children. Thank you for your cooperation.

Registration Service Agreements The Resort Municipality of Whistler has chosen to partner with various organizations who provide quality speciality programs that we can not offer ourselves. These organizations are responsible for the delivery of the program and can be recognized in the program descriptions by their organizational logo or RSA beside the program name. If you have any questions about this procedure please contact the Program Services Supervisor at 604-935-8369.

Our programs are cost recovery based and we need a minimum number of participants for each course. Avoid disappointment - register early. Don’t wait!

Physical Literacy Just like reading and writing, children have to learn how to move. Goal of the Whistler Physical Literacy Initiative Every child in Whistler will have the opportunity to develop both physical literacy and games literacy, and that there will be a variety of activities for all individuals to promote lifelong physical activity and participation for life. Physical Literacy Definition Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (International Physical Literacy Association, 2014) physicalliteracy.ca Literacy is defined as: a person’s knowledge of a particular subject or field, for example, computer literacy. Therefore, physical literacy is: the mastering of fundamental movements skills.

• Stage 5: Train to Compete (girls 15 - 21, boys 16 - 23) • Stage 6: Train to Win (girls 18+, boys 19+) • Stage 7: Active for Life (any age participant) The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) focuses on programming that develops skills at Stage 1 and 2 and then hopes to meet everyone’s needs for Stage 7. For more information contact the Program Services Supervisor 604-935-8369 or visit physicalliteracy.ca or canadiansportforlife.ca

Physically Literate individuals: • Demonstrate a wide variety of basic human movements, fundamental movement skills and fundamental sports skills. • Move with poise, confidence, competence and creativity in different physical environments (on the ground, both indoor and outdoor; in the air; in and on water; on snow and ice). • Develop the motivation and ability to understand, communicate, apply and analyze different forms of movement. • Make choices that engage them in physical activity, recreation or sport activities that enhance their physical and psychological wellness, and permit them to pursue sport excellence commensurate with their ability and motivation. canadiansportforlife.ca Fundamental Movement Skills Mastering Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) is the most important step in developing physical literacy. FMS are basic movement skills taught through games and activities that engage children and motivate them to continue in an activity. While these basic skills are fun in nature, they also serve the purpose of teaching the essential skills required as a foundation for more complex physical activities and sports. It is important that all children develop a good base of these skills before puberty to optimize both future performance and lifelong activity. There are seven stages within the basic LTAD model: • Stage 1: Active Start (0 - 6 years) • Stage 2: FUNdamental (girls 6 - 8, boys 6 - 9) • Stage 3: Learn to Train (girls 8 - 11, boys 9 - 12) • Stage 4: Train to Train (girls 11 - 15, boys 12 - 16)

CANADIAN 24-HOUR MOVEMENT GUIDELINES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH: An Integration of Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Sleep

PREAMBLE These guidelines are relevant to apparently healthy children and youth (aged 5–17 years) irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, or the socio-economic status of the family. Children and youth are encouraged to live an active lifestyle with a daily balance of sleep, sedentary behaviours, and physical activities that supports their healthy development. Children and youth should practice healthy sleep hygiene (habits and practices that are conducive to sleeping well), limit sedentary behaviours (especially screen time), and participate in a range of physical activities in a variety of environments (e.g., home/school/community; indoors/outdoors; land/water; summer/winter) and contexts (e.g., play, recreation, sport, active transportation, hobbies, and chores). For those not currently meeting these 24-hour movement guidelines, a progressive adjustment toward them is recommended. Following these guidelines is associated with better body composition, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal fitness, academic achievement and cognition, emotional regulation, pro-social behaviours, cardiovascular and metabolic health, and overall quality of life. The benefits of following these guidelines far exceed potential risks. These guidelines may be appropriate for children and youth with a disability or medical condition; however, a health professional should be consulted for additional guidance. The specific guidelines and more details on the background research informing them, their interpretation, guidance on how to achieve them, and recommendations for research and surveillance are available at www.csep.ca/guidelines.


GUIDELINES For optimal health benefits, children and youth (aged 5–17 years) should achieve high levels of physical activity, low levels of sedentary behaviour, and sufficient sleep each day. A healthy 24 hours includes:

SWEAT

STEP

SLEEP

SIT

MODERATE TO VIGOROUS PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

LIGHT PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

SLEEP

SEDENTARY BEHAVIOUR

Several hours of a variety of structured and unstructured light physical activities;

Uninterrupted 9 to 11 hours of sleep per night for those aged 5–13 years and 8 to 10 hours per night for those aged 14–17 years, with consistent bed and wake-up times;

No more than 2 hours per day of recreational screen time;

An accumulation of at least 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity involving a variety of aerobic activities. Vigorous physical activities, and muscle and bone strengthening activities should each be incorporated at least 3 days per week;

Limited sitting for extended periods.

Preserving sufficient sleep, trading indoor time for outdoor time, and replacing sedentary behaviours and light physical activity with additional moderate to vigorous physical activity can provide greater health benefits.

Waitlists:

Classes are 9 sessions, pricing has been adjusted accordingly.

Programs and Facility Use Before & After: Program participants are free to us the MPSC facility after their program classes. If nonprogram participants wish to use the recreation facility before or after swim programs, regular admission fees apply.

DESCRIPTION

RCSK 1

Swimmers receive an orientation to water and the pool area and work on floats, glides and kicking. Swimmers build their endurance by working on the 5m front swim.

RCSK 2

RCSK 3

RCSK 4

RCSK 5

RCSK 6

RCSK 7

RCSK 8

Swimmers work on propulsion skills to move through the water and to remain at the surface. Swimmers work on the front swim (5m) and learn about deep-water activities and proper use of a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). Fitness activities include the 10m flutter kick and a 10m distance swim. This level provides an introduction to diving, and teaches swimmers how to make wise choices about where and when to swim. Endurance is achieved by building strength in the flutter kick and a 15-metre swim. This level introduces the front crawl (10m) and back swim with shoulder roll (15m). Swimmers work on kneeling dives, surface support (45 seconds, deep water) and developing a greater sense of self-safety by understanding their own limits. Endurance is built through a 25m swim. This level introduces the back crawl (15m), sculling skills, whip kick on the back, stride dives and treading water. Front crawl increases to 15m. An introduction to safe boating skills is also included. Endurance is developed through a 50m swim. This level refines front crawl with a focus on hand entry and breathing (25m), back crawl with a focus on arm positions and body roll (25m), and introduces elementary backstroke (15m), safety on ice, and rescue of others with throwing assists. Swimmers demonstrate the front dive and their ability to tread water in deep water for 1½ minutes. Endurance is built through dolphin kick and a 75m swim. This level builds skills and endurance for the front crawl (50m), back crawl (50m) and elementary back stroke (25m) and introduces whip kick on the front. Swimmers learn about airway and breathing obstructions, reach assists and stride entry. Swimming endurance is increased to a 150m swim. This level is an introduction to breast stroke (15m) and feet-first surface dives. Swimmers learn about the dangers of open water, hypothermia, the performance of rescue breathing on children and adults, and standing shallow dives. Swimmers participate in timed treading water activities using the eggbeater skill for 3 minutes to improve their ability to remain at the surface in the event of an unexpected fall into water. Endurance is built on a 300m swim. Front crawl and back crawl distances are increased to 75m each.

RCSK 9

This level refines the front crawl (100m), back crawl (100m), elementary back stroke (50m) and breast stroke (25m), and encourages swimmers to combine different kicks for fitness (3 mins). They also work on head-first surface dives and learn about wise choices, peer influences and self-rescue from ice. Endurance is built through a 400m swim.

RCSK 10

This level is a final assessment of the strokes for technique and distance (front crawl 100m, back crawl 100m, elementary back stroke 50m, breast stroke 50m and sidestroke 25m). Swimmers learn about sun safety, rescue of others from ice, and head-first and feet-first surface dives. Endurance is built using the dolphin kick (vertical) and a 500m swim.

STRONG by Zumba is not dancing; it’s feeling the beat instead of counting the reps to push students past their perceived limits into a whole new level of intensity.
