Learn To Swim–Rolling Green Elementary School

Since we can’t seem to get Shelbert the Sea Turtle out of the water, we thought we would invite you to join him in the pool! Shelbert loves the water, and wants his friends to be just as comfortable in his natural habitat. Learn the fundamentals of swimming, and ultimately, how to swim by yourself. Shelbert’s Swim Academy classes are taught in the main pool in at least three feet of water. On the first day of class, students are placed in the most appropriate of five levels. Each level has a specific set of objectives to achieve before moving to the next level. Prerequisite: Children must be able to enter the water and participate on their own. Levels 1-4 include: • Water exploration • Stroke readiness • Primary skills • Stroke development

Levels 5 includes: • Emphasize on stroke refinement • Preparation for higher levels of swimming

About our program:

• O ur programs use the nationally recognized US Figure Skating Basic Skills Program. Each participant receives two free passes for Public Skate, or 30-minute freestyle sessions. • Classes meet once a week, and skates are provided for all levels. • The minimum class size is six skaters. We reserve the right to combine classes with fewer than two skaters. • Skaters progress at their own rate, moving on to the next level only after required elements are mastered. All levels may be repeated until the requirements are met. The Rockford Park District reserves the right to move any skater between levels. • If you need to miss your regular class, you can make it up if it is offered another time during the week. If not, you can use one of your public or freestyle session passes to practice.

C an parents go out on the ice with their participant? Except for Chair Hockey, only students and instructors are allowed on the ice.  hat equipment will participants W need to play hockey? The Junior IceHogs lesson program provides free helmets and skates for participants to use. Chair Hockey and Rink Rats require protective elbow and knee pads. Ter-mites 1–2 and Learn to Play Hockey require hockey-style shin pads, elbow pads, and hockey gloves. Learn to Play Hockey participants also need their own stick. Hockey pants, or breezers, are recommended, but not required. S hould participants purchase pads and hockey gloves even if they are just learning? Hockey pads and gloves are recommended, but not required. We’ve found the more protected participants are, the less it will hurt when they fall, leading to increased confidence and best of all, more fun!  ow should participants dress? H It is recommended that participants wear sweatpants or athletic pants (shin pads go underneath them), a warm sweatshirt, and winter or hockey gloves. I f participants miss a session, can it be made up in one of the other classes? We do our best to accommodate. Simply talk to the instructor to give them a heads up! How many instructors per participant? We strive to keep our student/teacher ratio at 6:1. Several instructors are on the ice to help participants.

When can I register? To help ensure a spot, register for your programs early. Registration is accepted one week prior to the start date, unless otherwise noted. Late registrations are accepted on a case-by-case basis by the program’s manager. For more information, contact Customer Service at 815-987-8800 or visit one of our customer service locations; we will arrange a refund as requested.

To be placed on a waiting list, the program registration process must be fully completed, including payment. Your position on the waiting list is based upon when the registration is processed by RPD. If RPD cannot accommodate your enrollment by the second meeting of the class, your registration fee will be refunded in full.

The District continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety.
