Registration Tips 1. Prepare your class wish list in advance so you can quickly search for classes by keyword or class number in the search bar. 2. The fastest way to register for multiple people in your family is to use the “Family Registration” option. Type in a class number or title in the search bar and then select the names of participants you wish to register. Continue this process for all classes you wish to register your family for. Once completed you can review the summary on the right side and click on ‘Confirm Registrations’. Classes in your summary list will be held for you for 10 minutes. 3. Once you click on ‘register’ for a class (outside of the ‘Family Registration’ section) your reservation will be held for 5 minutes. Refreshing or opening the page in a new tab will halt your registration and you will need to start again. 4. Ensure you are aware of any prerequisites that may be required for a class, as participants who are not at the correct level may be withdrawn by the Head Pro or Director before the start date. 5. The system will not notify you if you have registered in courses that run on the same day and time, so it is important to be aware of class conflicts in advance. 6. If the class you want is full when you try to register, add yourself to the waitlist. As spaces become available, waitlisted participants will automatically be registered for the program and notified by Recreation Services Staff by phone or email. 7. Be sure to familiarize yourself with all cancellation policies. A reminder email will be sent to registrants in advance of the cancellation deadline for group programs, workshops and events. It is up to the member to cancel within the timeline for the designated policy. 8. To view the classes to confirm they were processed, click on ‘My Account’ (top right) and click on the ‘Appointments’ tab to view either ‘My Bookings’ or ‘Family Bookings’.

Please Note • • •

Program information in this brochure is subject to change. For the most accurate information, please review the program details online in GameTime. Programs may be cancelled before the start date if minimum numbers are not met, so be sure to register early to avoid disappointment.

GENERAL INFORMATION

*Please note that some classes that start in January will continue until June, and that some classes that began in September run full year until June. It is a good idea to check which classes you will need to re-register for this season.

UNDER-AGE REGISTRATION POLICY Children under-age for a specific program must receive approval from the Head Pro or Program Coordinator of that program before registering. If permission is given, under-age participants must register with the Recreation Services Desk directly so that we may bypass the restriction in GameTIme. Please note that receiving advanced approval does not guarantee a spot in the program.

STATUTORY HOLIDAYS Group programs are not scheduled to take place on statutory holidays or weekends when a statutory holiday falls on a Monday or Friday. Exceptions include FitPass classes and Parent & Tot Drop-in Gym. Holiday weekend schedules and hours will be posted online at www.arbutusclub.com one week prior to the holiday.

PROGRAM APPROVALS Some programs require approval from the Head Pro or Program Coordinator, prior to registering, to ensure participants are at a required level for the class. If a Member is incorrectly registered for a class, the Head Pro reserves the right to remove them and recommend another class more suitable for their age or skill level.

CLUB COACHING POLICY The use of professional instructors or coaches from outside the Club is not permitted. Only instructors and coaches who have been contracted by the Club may teach on Club premises.

REGISTRATION WAITLISTS During the initial days of each registration period, it is recommended to make use of the wait list feature if you do not secure your preferred program dates and times. As space becomes available for the program, waitlisted participants will automatically be registered and notified by email.

SESSION DATES Winter Session: Monday, January 6 - Sunday, March 15, 2020*

PROGRAM FEES All program and related fees will be billed to your Member account. Regular weekly programs will be billed monthly for the duration of the program. Workshops and short-term activities will be billed in the month they occur.

WINTER 2020

ACTIVITY & SPORT ASSOCIATION FEES Some program areas are required to have Members register with their provincial sport governing association for the purpose of insurance coverage to compete in tournaments and events. These fees may be billed seasonally or yearly and are listed on the program pages for which they apply. Some areas also have Activity Fees, billed seasonally or yearly, and are used to pay for special equipment, gifts, awards, seasonal parties, events and other program enhancements.

EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS Recreation Services Staff often email class participants about cancelled dates, changes to program days or times, upcoming event information and more. To receive these emails, please ensure your email address is up to date by contacting Accounting at 604-269-8787 or admin@arbutusclub.com.


MISSED/MAKE-UP CLASSES If you miss a class for any reason, it is the decision of the Head Pro or Progam Coordinator of each activity area, as to whether or not they can accommodate a make-up lesson. Most activity areas do not offer this option as it is disruptive to participants registered and is challenging for Staff to accommodate. CHILDREN UNDER 8 YEARS A parent/guardian (16yrs+) must accompany children under 8 years old at all times while in the Club. You must drop off and pick up your child for all programs as children under 8 years of age will not be released from the program on their own. Children will be taken to childminding if parents or guardians arrive late to pick them up. ALLERGY AWARE Recreation Services Staff are allergy aware and request that parents do not pack snacks for their children that contain common allergens, such as peanuts. If your child has an allergy you would like us to be aware of, please contact the Recreation Services Desk and we will notify the instructor. GUEST POLICY Recreation programs and events are restricted to Members only, unless otherwise noted. A limited number of guests may be permitted to attend 25 Year Club events, special youth events and various one time workshops, if space permits before the event date. PROGRAM FEEDBACK We welcome your feedback about our programs, camps, services and events at any time in person, by phone or by email. We also have an evaluation form available online at www.arbutusclub.com/services/recreation in case you would like to complete it anonymously. ACTIVITY COMMITTEES The success of our activity areas is in large part due to the contributions made by volunteer Committee Members. If you would like to participate in one of the following Activity Committees, please fill out an application form available at Club Reception or email Sue Snow at ssnow@arbutusclub.com.

THE DANCE PROGRAM

PROGRAM INFORMATION

MARLENE HERSHFIELD Dance Director mhershfield@arbutusclub.com Marlene Hershfield, A.I.S.T.D, is one of Vancouver’s most respected dance educators. Some of her students have gone on to notable dance careers. She has an extensive background in teaching ballet, jazz and national as well as choreography and has adjudicated at numerous festivals. She brings decades of wisdom, and leadership to the dance program. Marlene is proud of her dynamic team of experienced teachers who are sure to inspire your children to explore and enjoy dance in many exciting forms.

Students enrolling in dance, with the exception of preschool classes, are required to make a full-year commitment as classes are progressive and depend on weekly development. Class placement is determined at the teachers discretion. There will not be a recital dance in exam classes. PROGRAM ATTENDANCE While we want our students to have fun, dancing is a commitment. Students registered in dance are expected to remain in the program for the full term. We ask that parents ensure students arrive on time, attend every class and inform us in advance by email at mhershfield@arbutusclub.com if they have to miss a class for medical or other reasons. BALLET EXAMS Exams motivate both serious and recreational dancers to develop discipline, confidence and a sense of achievement. Students are examined by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, London, England, in either the Imperial Society of Dance or the Cecchetti Society. Usually held in June and administered by international examiners, exams involve additional expenses such as entry fees and outfits. Instructors determine which dancers are ready to be examined. Examination candidates must register for at least two ballet classes per week from the grade one level. Students on pointe require a minimum of three lessons per week.

EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS Notices about classes, upcoming competitions, and recital details will be emailed to class participants throughout the year. To receive these emails, please ensure your email address is up to date by contacting Accounting at 604-269-8787 or admin@arbutusclub.com.

SHITO RYU KARATE

JUNIOR PROGRAMS

Shito Ryu (pronounced Shee-toe-roo) is one of the four main styles of Karate practiced worldwide. The Shito Ryu Karate offered at The Arbutus Club is affiliated with the Shito Ryu International Karate do Kai of Japan.

LITTLE NINJAS (5-6YRS) This is a starter class for children interested in karate. Classes are fun, yet structured and disciplined to build self-control and confidence. Fundamental movement skills will be introduced through basic karate skills such as punches, kicks and forms, taught in a safe and friendly environment.

If you would like to improve coordination, increase flexibility, develop more strength, and learn self-defense then try karate. The aim is to develop physical, mental and spiritual well-being in a balanced harmonious way. Karate training involves basics (kihon waza), forms (kata), and fighting (kumite). Karate inherently has a developmental model within its belt ranking system that allows for individual progression and development. All practitioners begin at a white belt level and progress to red, yellow, orange, green, blue, brown, and black belt.

REQUIRED CLOTHING Beginners are not required to wear the karate uniform. Appropriate attire is loose fitting, comfortable clothes. White karate uniforms and protective equipment may be ordered through the Karate Professional and billed to your account.

NATIONAL TENNIS RATING PROGRAM (NTRP)

ADULT INTERMEDIATE (19YRS+)

The Arbutus Club Tennis Department uses the National Tennis Rating Program for determining skill levels. The following are the adult level definitions.

Jan 06-Mar 09 Jan 07-Mar 10 Jan 07-Mar 10 Jan 08-Mar 14 Jan 08-Mar 11 Jan 09-Mar 12 Jan 10-Mar 13 Jan 10-Mar 13

WINTER

Basics: NTRP 1.0-1.5 This player has limited experience and is still working primarily on getting the ball into play. Secondary: NTRP 2.0-2.5 This player needs on-court experience. This player has obvious stroke weaknesses but is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles play. This player is learning to judge where the ball is going although court coverage is weak. Can sustain a short rally at a slow pace with other players of the same ability. Intermediate: NTRP 3.0 This player is fairly consistent when hitting medium paced shorts, but is not comfortable with all strokes and lacks execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power. Most common doubles formation is one-up, oneback.
