PROGRAM REGISTRATION INFORMATION How to Register Registration begins July 1, 2020. The Derrick Club website has a direct link to register online. A minimum number of participants are required to run all programs. As such, all programs are subject to change, cancellation or postponement with little notice.

Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of our programs are subject to change to adapt to necessary safety precautions.

Registration Confirmation Registration is confirmed by email following registration on GameTime. You will only be contacted if the class is cancelled or postponed. Credits are not given for classes missed. All programs require a minimum number of participants to run. Registration is taken on a first-come basis. When a program is full your name will appear on the GameTime waitlist. You will automatically be registered into the program if a member cancels from that program. GameTime will notify you by email that you are in the class. We monitor the size of classes regularly and add additional classes when possible and as required

Registration Cancellation: Online or in Person Continuous/Ongoing programs are billed on a monthly basis until you cancel out of the specific class. Once registered in one of the continuous programs you do not need to register again. Date-specific classes have exact start and end dates and correspond with the different sessions. Date-specific classes require you to register again for each session in fall, winter, spring, and summer.

Guest Program Registration Active athletic members may register a guest for a program by completing a registration form at the Front Desk. In addition to the program fee, guest fees apply and members will be billed for their guest. One week prior to starting the program, members will be notified if their guest is registered.

Grandchildren Program Registration

Program & Event Cancellation Policy Members must cancel online or complete a cancellation form one week (seven days) prior to a program start date to avoid a full billing charge. Cancellations by phone are not accepted. Members withdrawing less than one week prior will be charged the full program fee. Ongoing monthly programs must also be cancelled one week prior to the start of the month. Once registered in the program, we assume you want to continue unless you cancel online or complete a program cancellation form at the Front Desk. Names remaining on the class list after one week prior to the first day of the month will be billed the full amount. This policy is necessary to enable us to adequately identify instructor and program needs. Your account will be credited when the appropriate cancellation procedure is followed. Cancellations for personal training and private lessons will be accepted up to 24 hours prior to the appointment. If you do not cancel your scheduled appointment 24 hours in advance of its start time, you will be billed 100% of the session fee. Trainers are responsible for waiting 15 minutes for a client’s arrival. Upon late arrival, sessions will be completed to the end of the scheduled time or at the trainers’ discretion. Members are responsible for reviewing their monthly statement and informing Reception of any discrepancies. No adjustments will be made after three months. Please contact Reception at 780.437.1833 should you require assistance.

Why do Great Programs get Cancelled? When we check program registration and there are not enough members registered, we are forced to cancel or postpone the program. Last-minute registration will not allow us to hire an instructor in time.

Medical Information Please email or phone the Front Desk and inform us of any medical conditions. Medical information will be kept on file and shared with professional staff. At the time of registration, note any medical conditions your child may have. If your child requires an EpiPen, medical forms must be filled out prior to the first class. Notify instructors and professionals of any medical conditions when the program begins.

Member grandparents may register their grandchildren in programs and pay one-half of the daily guest fees. This may be done prior to the start of a program by completing a registration form at the Front Desk. Children will be accepted into the program when space permits. Program visits will not be included in the twelve guest visits per year. Grandchildren using the club a casual basis will be billed the regular guest fee.

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, Canada’s initiative for sport and recreation, are as follows:

Active Start From 0 – 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.

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.

Learn to Train 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.

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.

Train to Compete 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 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.

Active 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.

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 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, all abilities are welcome. Athletes will be grouped with others at their level and will progress at their own pace. Monday | 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. September 14 – December 14 Class cancelled October 12

Ages: 12 – 15

Wednesday | 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Junior members 12 – 15 years old require Derrick fitness certification to use the Fitness Centre. Juniors 16 and 17 years require approval from fitness staff to use the Fitness Centre. They must wear their membership cards or wristbands with proof of certification or approval while using the Fitness Centre. Junior members 11 years and under are not permitted to use the Fitness Centre. The certification provides valuable information that ensures a safe introduction to exercising and physical fitness. It includes instruction on technique, aerobic vs. anaerobic exercise, diet, rest and other key components of a healthy fitness program. Juniors are given a simple program that they can do on their own. Orientations take approximately 45 minutes and require a short test to complete the certification. Register on GameTime.

Sport Ready Coach: Marko Blaza 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 that respective sports require. 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 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. 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. Monday | September 14 – December 14 | $165 Class cancelled October 12

GYMNASTICS Instructor: Samantha Johnson Samantha has been involved with gymnastics since age 5. She started as a competitive artistic gymnast until age 12 when she wanted to focus more on the fun side of recreational trampoline and tumbling. At age 16 her love of gymnastics continued to grow as she became a coach. She has coached Men’s, Women’s and Trampoline/Tumbling competitively and recreationally. She has coached all ages from babies just learning to walk and run, to adults who want to learn body control and build strength. Gymnastics is her biggest passion and love in life and Samantha wants to share that with everyone she meets. Saturday | September 12 – Deember 19 Class cancelled October 10

They will work on building confidence and start to learn more controlled inversions such as beginner handstands and cartwheels.

PARKOUR & FREE-RUNNING Develop and refine movement proficiency with parkour and free-running! Parkour is a training discipline and movement culture from France that promotes balance and agility. It 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. While parkour shuns unnecessary acrobatic movements, free-running encourages self-expression through creative movements and tricks. Free-running borrows acrobatic elements from martial arts, gymnastics, capoeira, breakdance, and tricking. Students work on jumps, landings, vaulting, and climbing, on and around obstacles. Build confidence and somersault your way to fitness and fun in a non-competitive environment! *Please note: for level I and II classes, register your child in the class you feel is the best fit. During the first class we assess skill level and focus, and recommend reassigning if appropriate. In most cases, a student should begin parkour training with a level I or equivalent class. Participants 11 years and older may choose to start with a level II class.

KARATE Instructors: Sensei Kelsey Mramor - 3rd Dan Sensei Raye Willms - 2nd Dan Sensei Elise Leong-Sit - 2nd Dan Starting with only five students in 2004, Derrick Karate 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. Sensei Kelsey Mramor founded the Derrick Karate Club in 2004. She ran the program from 2004-2013 while competing on the Shintani National Team and completing an undergraduate degree. In 2013, she left to complete a Masters degree and travel for her spouse’s profession. Since her departure, Sensei Kelsey has had two daughters and lived across Canada and the USA. She has settled back home in Edmonton and is excited to resume coaching at the Derrick Karate Club. Sense Kelsey believes in diligent hard work balanced with fun and excitement! Sensei Raye Willms achieved her 2nd Dan on May 7, 2016. Sensei Kelsey Mramor (previously Ross) recruited her to help teach the karate program at the Derrick in 2008, since then Sensei Raye has found a passion for teaching. Karate is a very important part of her life between coaching, competing, tutoring math/science and building her career. Sensei Raye knows the value you can draw from karate and how it can set you up for success in other areas of your life. Sensei Elise Leong-Sit, 1st Dan, achieved her 2nd degree black belt on October 5, 2019. Elise was the first Derrick Club member to make it from her first grading to white stripe, to her black belt grading. A strong, determined and hardworking student, she truly exemplifies how someone with determination and perseverance can achieve their goals. In June 2017 she joined the Shintani National Team and has since taken a role coaching our students in competitive karate, the style specific to the Olympics! There is a $70 annual fee in October and a $10 fee per semester to provide access to local and national belt testing events and tournaments. If you have questions about classes, please contact the head instructor!

SAFETY SPLASH NOTES The Derrick Club Standard of Water Safety • Active supervision must be provided by an adult 18 years of age or older. • Children 4 years of age or younger MUST have an adult in the water with them and be within arm’s reach at all times. • A child 5 or 6 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 7 and 12 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 7 and 10 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. However, full are circles and breathing to the side is encouraged not mandatory, as they will be required to always wear a lifejacket when in the main pool. Regardless of age, lifeguards can ask anyone weak or unfamiliar to complete the swim test before entering the deep end. A single adult may actively supervise a maximum of three children at one time.

Before & After Lessons

Staff Emergency Doors

The teach pool and main pool are busy during lessons, lifeguards may ask you to wait until class is over before entering the water. Children under age 5 are not allowed in the teach pool or whirlpool without parents in the water and within arm’s reach at all times.

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 Infants & 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 a warm shower located on the pool deck prior to entering the pool.

Juniors Junior members under the age of 18 are required to wear a wristband at all times when swimming; this includes all programs.

The recommended maximum time for the hot tub is approximately 10 minutes. A cool down for an equal amount of time is recommended before going back in. 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/scrub from head to toe to ensure pools remain clean and sanitary.

PICKLEBALL Pickleball may be played in singles or doubles with a solid paddle and a ball similar to a wiffle ball. The game is similar to other racquet sports and is played on a doubles badminton court with the net lowered to 3 feet. Pickleball requires less dynamic movement than other racquet sports and is gentler on the body. In addition, pickleball strokes are very much like tennis but game play is much slower. Pickleball is easy to learn and a hoot to play. Pickleball is a great game for all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. Come out and give it a try in the multi-purpose gym, we have racquets and balls available for you to borrow. Coach Al Smigelski After ten years coaching badminton at the Derrick Club, Al and his wife Darlene have gained an exceptional passion and expertise for the sport of pickleball. They both look forward to seeing new and old faces playing pickleball.

Pickleball Lessons Al is happy to put together a clinic to introduce the game or work with you to enhance your skills! Please leave your name at the Front Desk and Al will contact you. Clinic fee: $15 per person (minimum of 3 in a group).

MUSIC THERAPY The Derrick Club is excited to offer weekly music therapy programs and private sessions. Karly Goss, a former playroom staff and summer camp leader at the Derrick, is a recent graduate of Capilano University’s music therapy program. In addition, she completed her music therapy internship with Calgary’s Core Music Therapy. Karly has over 10 years of experience working with children of all ages and has recently started her own music therapy practice-Hope Music Therapy. Music therapy is the strategic use of music to achieve non-musical goals. A variety of interventions to specifically target the developmental stage of your child will be used. Activities will target gross motor movements, speech/verbal abilities, developmentally appropriate cognitive nurturing, educational elements, counting, interacting with others, and following instructions. “The beautiful thing about music is that children are so naturally drawn to it, they are intrinsically motivated to partake and they have no idea that they are working so many critical brain/physical areas all at once, growing in ways that only music makes possible.” – Karly Goss, MT Feel free to check out Hope Music Therapy on Facebook and follow @hopemusictherapy on Instagram for more information. Private lessons and Virtual options are also available $90 for 1 hour $67 for 45 min $45 for 30 min Contact Karly directly by email: karlyhopemusictherapy@gmail.com

Coach: Ken Riess Ken Riess is long time endurance athlete. He has been active in coaching and a competitive bike racer/triathlete for over 3 decades. Ken has a great mix of experience and education to help all athletes, specifically master athletes, reach peak fitness. This group program will offer members a challenging workout. Workouts are periodized to prepare those who want to hit the road next spring with a high level of fitness. With the use of indoor cycling trainers, this course works on endurance, power and technique through the indoor season. A basic knowledge of cycling, your own bike and trainer (which can be stored at the Club) are all that is required. A mountain bike is fine as long as you have a proper training tire for the trainer. You will need to change into a slick rear tire. We have a limited number of Tacx Flow wattage trainers that participants may use but you require your own skewer and training tire. Coach Ken will be available if you have any questions. Each person will set and accomplish their personal goals during these sessions. Experience riding a road bike is an asset but not mandatory. The program can be more immersive if you have an ANT+ or Bluetooth heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or power meter on your bike. These are not a requirement.

Pilates equipment enhances mat work principles using resistance training and challenging body movements. Springs and other resistance attachments provide an indepth strength building component to assist in developing long, lean muscles. The pilates equipment works your entire body instead of training isolated parts on specific pieces of fitness equipment. Due to the intricate and precise nature of movements, equipment training is done in a private or semi-private session with a pilates professional. Sessions begin with a postural assessment and movement analysis to provide information on the state of your body’s functions. From there, a tailored set of exercises is designed based on your needs and goals. Once a certain level of awareness, understanding and execution of movements on the equipment is demonstrated, a member can use the pilates equipment on their own for self-practice. Certification to access the equipment can be approved by Elaine or Janet. Private Sessions: $70/hour Semi-private Sessions: $45/hour (per person) for a group of 2 You must do private sessions before doing semi-private.
