7 Recreation & Activity Guide
LONG TERM ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT (LTAD) When participating in any type of recreation or competitive sport or activity, there is a progressive model that Canada and subsequent organizational bodies use for athletes, whether they are just beginning or a nationally ranked competitor. This model breaks down the stages in specific detail based on age, skill level/ability, and competition. The 7 stages that Sport for Life, Canadaâ€™s initiative for sport and recreation, are as follows:
Train to Compete
From 0 â€“ 6 years, boys and girls need to be engaged in daily active play. Through play and movement, they develop the fundamental movement skills and learn how to link them together. At this stage developmentally appropriate activities will help participants feel competent and comfortable participating in a variety of fun and challenging activities and games.
Athletes enter the Train to Compete stage when they are proficient in sport-specific Train to Train athlete development components (physical, technical-tactical, mental, and emotional). Athletes are training nearly full-time and competing at the national level while being introduced to international competition.
Train to Win FUNdamentals In the FUNdamentals stage, participants develop fundamental movement skills in structured and unstructured environments for play. The focus is on providing fun, inclusive, multisport, and developmentally appropriate sport and physical activity. These experiences will result in the participant developing a wide range of movement skill along with the confidence and desire to participate.
Athletes in the Train to Win stage are world class competitors who are competing at the highest level of competition in the world (e.g. Olympics, Paralympics, and World Championships, World Cups or top professional leagues). These athletes have highly personalized training and competition plans and have an integrated support team of physical therapists, athletic therapists, and sport psychologists providing ongoing support.
Learn to Train
Active for Life
Once a wide range of fundamental movement skills have been acquired, participants progress into the Learn to Train stage leading to understanding basic rules, tactics, and strategy in games and refinement of sport specific skills. There are opportunities to participate in multiple sports with competitions focused on skill development and retention. Games and activities are inclusive, fun, and skill based. At the end of the Learn to Train stage, participants grow (or progress) towards sport excellence in the Train to Train stage or being Active for Life, either by being Competitive for Life or Fit for Life.
Individuals who have a desire to be physically active are in the Active for Life stage. A participant may choose to be Competitive for Life or Fit for Life and, if inclined, give back as a sport or physical activity leader. Competitive for Life includes those who compete in any organized sport recreation leagues to Master Games. Fit for Life includes active people who participate in non-competitive physical activity.
Train to Train Athletes enter the Train to Train stage when they have developed proficiency in the athlete development performance components (physical, technical-tactical, mental, and emotional). Rapid physical growth, the development of sporting capability, and commitment occurs in this stage. Athletes will generally specialize in one sport towards the end of the stage. A progression from local to provincial competition occurs over the course of the stage.

Parkour & Free-Running Develop and refine your movement proficiency with our core Parkour and Free-running classes! Parkour is a training discipline and movement culture from France that promotes balance and agility. Its essence can be summed up in one principle: moving as efficiently as possible from point A to point B. Free-running is a separate, but related discipline that diverged from Parkour in 2001. Whereas Parkour shuns unnecessary acrobatic movements, Free-running encourages self-expression through creative movements and tricks. Free-running borrows many of its acrobatic elements from martial arts, gymnastics, Capoeira, breakdance, and tricking. Students will work on jumps, landings, vaulting, and climbing, all on and around obstacles. Come and build confidence, and somersault your way to fitness and fun in a non-competitive environment! * Please note: for our Level I and Level II parkour classes, please register your child or teenager in the class you feel is the best fit. During the first classes we will assess skill level and focus, and recommend reassigning students if appropriate. In most cases, a student should begin their parkour training with a Level I or equivalent class. Participants 11 years and older may choose to start with a Level II class.

Youth High Performance Training Ages: 12 – 17 Coach: Mike Wood Gaining the Edge is geared towards young athletes looking to develop strength, speed, agility, power, reaction, core training, stamina, deceleration, and balance during the off-season. Comprehending the athlete's sport, both its specific energy system requirements and its movement patterns, is critical to designing a conditioning program that's targeted and efficient. Conditioning, defined as an energy system adaptation to a physical stimulus, is the most improperly-trained component of athletics today. We will focus on improving fitness, core strength, explosiveness, and functional strength to produce faster, stronger, and better conditioned athletes. Athletes will train in a group setting and all abilities are welcome. Athletes will be grouped with others at their level and will progress at their own pace.

Sport Ready Created by Mike Wood Instructor: Mason Rabinovitch Sport Ready will coach better quality of movement, and in turn, create better athletes for any sport in a fun competitive environment that creates a culture of success. We believe that athleticism is developed and learned over a long term athletic development program rather than just on natural talent. Our aim is to develop movement so athletes can perform any movement that their respective sport requires. When training for athleticism, an individual must have solid movement patterns that can hold up to the force placed on it. Hence, we must know if the athlete has asymmetries (differences from side to side) in the body that will force compensation and eventually cause breakdown in the body. Consequently, it is important to focus on building a solid platform. The best way to help the body to develop strength, elasticity, agility, power, muscle recruitment, acceleration, and deceleration is to play a wide range of sports. Playing sports is the key to developing those crucial components. Sports requires wrist set, separation of upper body and lower body movement, segmental stabilization, upper and lower body power, balance, rotational power, vertical power, weight transfer and many other segments created by sports. Hence we will focus on as many sports as we can to develop the necessary skills and patterns to become better movers and athletes. Children under six years of age are encouraged to register in our gymnastics programs.

The first team to find water and bring it back to base will win a huge victory for mankind. Lesson 6: Remote Control Rover – The majority of the time the robots will need to navigate on their own. Occasionally, team members might need to control them from back home. In this lesson, students will learn how to remotely control their robot.
KARATE Instructors: Sensei Craig Pettie - 4th Dan (degree black belt), Sensei Raye Willms - 2nd Dan, Sensei Elise Leong-Sit 1st Dan, Sensei Cameron McGregor - 2nd Dan, Sensei Amanda Ibbotson - 1st Starting with only five students in 2004, the Derrick Karate Club has exploded into a popular program teaching traditional karate, competitive sport karate and modern street self-defense. With numerous instructors, students are taught in small groups in a well-balanced and safe learning environment. Karate is a foundational activity that assists with basic and complicated coordination, balance, strength, endurance, timing, speed, and flexibility. Students gain confidence, respect, and discipline, which are demonstrated in their successes inside and outside the classroom. Combined, the physical and mental training enables students to deal with life’s daily challenges to rare self-defense situations. Our instructors are skilled karate practitioners with many years of training, competition, and coaching.

SAFETY SPLASH NOTES The Derrick Club Standard of Water Safety • An adult or designated caregiver fourteen years of age or older may provide active supervision. • Children four years of age or younger MUST have an adult in the water with them and be within arm’s reach of that adult at all times. • A child five or six years of age must be actively supervised at all times in the pool and take the swim test to use the main pool. When successful they may swim in the main pool under active supervision from the deck or pool. If unsuccessful they may stay in the main pool, with a caregiver in the water actively supervising, using the shallow end behind the backstroke flags only. • All swimmers between the ages of seven and ten must be able to complete the swim test to the lifeguard’s standard in order to swim beyond the shallow end back stroke flags. Swimmers between the ages of seven and ten do not require active supervision in the pool but must have a responsible adult in the club at all times. The swim test consists of a 25 meter horizontal front crawl with face in the water, full arm circles, and breathing to the side. The swimmer then exits the pool immediately, jumps back into the deep end, and treads water for 30 seconds with their ears out of the water. A parent and a lifeguard must supervise the swim test. The swim test is designed to keep our junior members safe when they are at the pool; therefore, it is crucial that it is completed with ease and comfort. Children unable to complete the swim test have the option of staying in the teach pool, or completing the swim test with a lifejacket on. When the swim test is being done with a lifejacket, the swimmer must be able to complete it to the same standards as they would be required to without a lifejacket.
A single adult may actively supervise a maximum of three children at one time.
Before & After Lessons During lessons, both the teach pool and main pool are busy, so the lifeguard might ask you to wait until a class is over before entering the water. Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in either the teach pool or whirlpool without parents in the water and within arm’s reach at all times.
Infants and Toddlers Infants and toddlers are required to wear approved swimwear before entering any pool (no diapers). Swimwear on preschoolers should be snug around the legs so the possibility of a fecal matter incident is decreased. Please take your children to the bathroom and warm shower located on the pool deck prior to entering the pool.
Juniors Junior members under the age of eighteen are required to wear a wristband at all times when swimming; this includes all programs.
Staff Emergency Doors Please do not use the doors to the main lobby as they are intended for staff or emergency access only. Should you need to speak to someone on deck, please use the Sun Café entrance or the locker room stairs.
Hot Tub The recommended maximum time for the hot tub is approximately ten minutes. A cool down for an equal amount of time is recommended before going back in the water. If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, please consult your doctor before using the hot tub.
The Aquatic Facility is a Shared Water Space Showering is Important! Everyone must take a cleansing shower before entering the swimming pools to avoid carrying dirt, bodily secretions, bacteria, and/or residue from hygiene products into the pool. Ideally you wet and scrub yourself from head to toe to ensure the swimming pools remain clean and sanitary.

Everyone is invited to join these classes and improve their technique. Please call the front desk 780 437-1833 or Coach Ma 780 391-2006 for more details.

Tai Yi played on the Shanghai Provincial Team in 2003 when the team finished second and she played on the Chinese National team from 2003 – 2007. One of the highlights of her career would be winning gold in the Women’s Singles at the 2008 Canadian International Championships in Montreal. Tai Yi and her doubles partner won silver in the same event. Her coaching and playing experience is invaluable to our badminton program. Dan Ki joins our professional coaching staff after seven years of coaching High Performance at the Royal Glenora Club followed by coaching at the B Active Club. He was the CCAA Badminton College National Men’s Singles Champion for five consecutive years and was twice named the CCAA All Canadian Male Athlete of the Year and twice the NAIT Male Athlete of the Year.

Learn more about this practice and how it can benefit your life! Saturday, September 15 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Workshop 2: Happy Hips Join Kelly for this practice that emphasizes the opening and strengthening of the hips. Being the largest joint in our body, and the one we rely on most for both support and movement, the hips are one of the most common places where we experience tightness and inflexibility. This hip+ workshop will help you release the musculature surrounding the hips joints so that you can experience a greater range of motion and more freedom not just in the hips, but through the legs and lower back. Whether you are a long-time yogi or feel like you have the tightest hips in the world, this workshop will give you the tools to walk away with healthy, happy hips!

Workshop 4: Breath Work Join Kelly for a transformational exploration of the breath. In this workshop, you will learn breathing techniques which have the power to tap into the tremendous potential of the body. Techniques learned have the potential to boost your immune system, relieve stress, and increase focus and energy as well as tap into the deep power that resides in the body. These are pranayama techniques which may cause profound, intense, euphoric sensations. As this is an extended breathing session, please avoid eating 2 – 3 hours prior to the workshop, dress comfortably, and come with an open mind ready to breathe! Bring a yoga mat if you have one, and perhaps a pillow to support your head as most of the practice will be done lying down. Saturday, November 24 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
SPECIALTY HEALTH & WELLNESS Hanna Somatic Movement Workshop 7 Free your legs, hips & pelvic The exercises you learn in this clinic, when practiced on a regular basis, will teach you how to eliminate a condition called Sensory Motor Amnesia (stuck stress in your muscles). This condition occurs in our brain and our muscles. It develops in response to trauma such as accidents, injuries and or surgeries, but also, just simply ongoing stress and repetitive daily movements. The brain has forgotten how to relax tight, painful muscles. A daily Somatic exercise practice reminds your brain how to release tight muscles so they can move efficiently. It prepares your entire body to move with renewed balance, coordination and flexibility, enhancing any other activity you choose to do in your life! Please bring a water bottle, pillow and blanket.

MOC Stretch Therapy for Hips, Back & Shoulders 7
HIIT Bootcamp – Daytime 7
Marjorie's signature MOC stretch therapy class focuses on 30 minutes of full body lengthening to warm and manipulate the fascia and muscles. Unique alignment techniques and fascia line patterns flow from one move to the other. After the flow, 30 minutes of foam rolling and other stretching tools are used to work the fascia. You will release chronically tight muscles and break up restrictions along with unique and creative exercises.
This boot camp is designed for maximum calorie burn with strength and resistance training to tone and tighten from head to toe. You will get fit or keep fit, get healthy, get challenged in your mind and body, and have a blast. We will combine strength, cardio, muscle endurance, flexibility, core, and functional movement patterns. You’ll get everything you need!
The concept of tissue mobility is of even greater importance after injury because new layers of fascia are laid down as scar tissue. If this tissue isn’t broken up, mobilized, and properly aligned, it can cause problems in the future. Scar tissue from past injuries will inhibit normal tissue mobility and function. Marjorie’s class will provide incredible relief for athletes or anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis, hamstring tightness, achy Achilles tendon, sore knees, ITB syndrome, restrictive hip/thigh tightness and rounded shoulders. Come roll and flow. You deserve it! All levels of athletes and ages benefit from the class Friday | Sept 14 – Dec 14 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Cost: $210 Drop In: $20

Don't worry, you won’t be thrown into the ring for an actual boxing match, but after this class, you’ll feel fierce and confident enough to be ready to try and take out Mike Tyson.

Jan began taking Pilates classes in 2003, in hopes of strengthening her core stability, an area that was missing in her regular fitness training. Pilates gave her a true understanding of proper movement in her body. She found that Pilates helped reduce her stress level with her busy lifestyle. Her interest and passion led her to become a certified Stott Pilates instructor in 2005. She instructs group classes, as well as private sessions. Pilates Professional: Elaine Newby Elaine has worked in fitness testing and programming for 30 years.

Her personal interests include, horseback riding, cycling, golf and tennis. Elaine is pleased to bring her skills to the Derrick Club, helping individual members work towards achieving an optimal functioning body.
Pilates Equipment Training Pilates equipment enhances mat-work principles by providing resistance training and challenging body movements. Springs and other attachments of resistance provide a more in-depth strength building component and assist in the development of long, lean muscles. The equipment works your entire body as a whole unit instead of training isolated parts on specific pieces of fitness equipment. Due to the intricate and precise nature of the movements, equipment training is done in a private or semiprivate session with a trained Pilate’s professional. A session begins with a postural assessment and movement analysis providing information on the current state of your body’s functions. From there, a tailor-made set of exercises will be designed based on your needs and goals. Once a certain level of awareness, understanding, and execution of the movements on the equipment has been demonstrated, a member will be able to use the Pilates equipment on their own for self-practice. Certification to access the equipment can be approved by Elaine or Janet, our two Pilates Professionals. Private Sessions: $70/hour Semiprivate Sessions: $45/hour (per person) for a group of two Individuals need to go through some private sessions before doing semiprivate sessions.
