Parkour and Free-Running Develop and refine your movement proficiency with our core Parkour and Free-running class! Parkour is a training discipline and movement culture from France that promotes balance and agility. It's 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!

Sport Ready Head Coach: Mike Wood Assistant Coach: Megan Wood 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. With younger children we will develop physical literacy before puberty so children have the basic skills to be active for life. Creating a solid foundation will provide the foundation for those who choose to pursue elite training in one sport or activity. For older students we will provide elite training that will be beneficial for athletes wanting to specialize in one sport and compete at the highest level, maximizing physical, mental and emotional development. Movement makes better athletes. It is very important for any athlete to become better at movement so they can perform any movement that their respective sport requires. When training for athleticism,

Winter Recreation & Activity Guide


Junior Programs an individual must have solid movement patterns that can hold up to the force placed onto 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 these crucial components. Sports require 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. Fast Starts Ages 3 – 5 Saturday | 11:00 – 11:45 a.m. January 21 – April 29 Class cancelled February 18, March 25, April 1, and April 15 Focus will be on rolling, crawling, throwing, kicking, jumping, striking, skipping and sport.

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 everything from life’s daily challenges to rare selfdefense situations. Our instructors are skilled karate practitioners with many years of training, competition, and coaching.

Sensei Craig Pettie has been teaching youth programs in the University area since 1991. Sensei Pettie started karate in September 1989 and received his Shodan, 1st degree black belt, in August 1992. He has a psychology degree from the University of Alberta and worked with children for seven years at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in a variety of settings (Psychology, School Rehab and Physical Therapy). In 2004, Sensei Pettie began a new career in computers and has been working as a Systems Analyst/Developer ever since.

Sensei Raye Willms achieved her 2nd Dan on May 7, 2016 after thirteen years of training. Kelsey Mramor (previously Ross) recruited her to help her teach the karate program at the Derrick Club in 2008 and since then Raye has found a passion for teaching karate to her students. Raye is has her BSc with specialization in Pharmacology at the University of Alberta, after participating in the Cortona Study Abroad program.

Sensei Jason Wlodarczyk, 2nd Dan, has been training since 1995 with the Bushido Karate Association under Sensei Freeman and Sensei Pettie. He has been teaching since 2004 as a junior instructor and received the rank of Shodan in May of 2006. Jason has taught with Sensei Kelsey Ross at the Derrick Wado-Kai Karate Club since 2006. While continuing his study of karate and achieving the rank of Nidan in May of 2012, he completed a B.Sc. in NanoElectrical Engineering at the University of Alberta.

Sensei Elise Leong-Sit, 1st Dan, achieved her black belt on May 2, 2015. Elise was the first Derrick Club member to make it all the way from her first grading to white stripe, to her black belt grading. Always a strong, determined and hardworking student who truly exemplifies that someone with determination and perseverance can achieve their goals. She is a leader and a role model and we are very excited she has joined our team of instructors.

Athletes Meditation Workshop Tuesday and Wednesday January 3 & 4 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Cost: $88 Why you should consider practicing meditation for athletic performance? 1. Stress Reduction Stress reduction is vital for optimal performance. Racing and competing when under stress has been proven to negatively impact athletic performance. Being relaxed and centered increases the ability to remain calm under pressure and also improves focus and concentration. By consistently practicing meditation, your body will learn how to relax in stressful situations, building self-confidence and ultimately achieving a more positive mindset. 2. Improved Sleep Patterns therefore Speeding Recovery Time Athletes who consistently practice meditation can help their body to recover quicker from training, racing, and even injury. Meditation aids in improving the quality/length of sleep and the immune system. 3. Enhanced Endurance This might be one of the most popular reasons to include meditation into your training routine. By practicing meditation that utilizes visualization, athletic endurance can be enhanced. Athletes who visualize accomplishing specific objectives/goals, combined with the regular practice of breathing exercises can train the body to work harder and for a longer period of time in training and competition. 4. Improved Sense of Identity, Self, and the Body Finally, meditation in sport can greatly improve the mind-body connection, allowing you to discover your optimal zone of performance

You will develop an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education: judgement, knowledge, skill and fitness. Rescuers learn tows and carries as well as defense and release methods in preparation of challenging rescues of increased risk including conscious and unconscious victims of various types. You will also learn stroke efficiency and endurance. These programs are the primary courses on the way to a lifesaving career. Courses are intense and require 100% attendance. The programs are divided into three categories according to your age. The Bronze Star program is designed for children who are 12 years old or older and have completed Swim Kids level 10 and want to start working towards becoming a lifesaver. Candidates will be introduced to a wide variety of skills including recognition and response to different types of swimmers in distress, pulse and respiration rate assessment, submerged victim recovery, and adult CPR. Bronze Medallion candidates must be at least 13 years or older and/or have completed their Bronze Star award. In Bronze Medallion, students will build on the skills they learned in Bronze Star, and will learn child CPR as well as completing more complicated rescue scenarios. To be eligible for the final lifesaving course, Bronze Cross, candidates must be at least 14 years of age and have successfully completed their Bronze Medallion award. In Bronze Cross, candidates will be introduced to infant CPR while refining their skills for adult and child CPR.

Aquatics SAFETY SPLASH NOTES The aquatic centre makes every effort to balance programming, recreation activities and lane swimming. Please read the pool schedule closely to ensure that you choose the most appropriate time to come to the pool. We will constantly update the schedule with each new session in an effort to keep you informed. Schedules will be available at the aquatic centre, front desk and on the Derrick Club website, www.derrickclub.com.

The Derrick Club's Standard of Water Safety Children 4 years old and younger – An adult must be in the water within arm’s reach at all times. Children 5 and 6 years old – An adult must actively supervise a maximum of 3 children at all times. To swim in the main pool with active supervision a 5 & 6 year old must complete the swim test. Swim Test – Complete a 25-meter horizontal front crawl with your head in the water, exit the pool and immediately jump back into the deep end of the pool, and tread water for 30 seconds with ears out of the water. A parent and a lifeguard must supervise the swim test. 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. All swimmers under the age of 12 must be able to complete the swim test to the lifeguard’s standard in order to swim in the main pool. Definition of Actively Supervising - A parent or a designated care giver 14 years or older must remain close, vigilantly supervising, with their eyes on the child at all times.

Hot Tub The recommended maximum time for the hot tub is approximately 10 minutes and cool down for an equal amount of time before going back in. If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, please consult your doctor before using the hot tub.

Pool Rules The aquatic facility is a shared water space; showering is crucial in keeping the water clean! 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 yourself from head to toe to ensure the swimming pools remain clean and sanitary to swim in. Members 17 years or younger are required to wear a wristband when you come to the swimming pool.

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 eliminated. Please take your children to the bathroom and warm shower located on the pool deck prior to entering the pool.

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 Sunroom Café entrance or the locker room stairs.

Before and 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.

The exercises will be performed standing, kneeling, seated, supine and prone on a mat. Tuesday 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. Winter: January 17 – March 21 Cost: $125 Drop In: $15 Instructor: Janet Thompson

Pilates – Small Equipment Evening Thursday 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Winter: January 19 – March 23 Cost: $125 Drop in: $15 Instructor: Janet Thompson

Pilates Equipment Training Pilate’s 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 semi-private 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 selfpractice. Certification to access the equipment can be approved by Elaine or Janet, our two Pilates Professionals.

Pilates Private Rates Private Sessions: $70/hour Semi Private Rate: $45 per person for a group of two, each individual needs to go through some private sessions before doing semi private sessions. The Derrick Golf & Winter Club

Workshop Description • In this 3 part workshop, you will learn self-empowering techniques to gently re-balance joint tension from head to toe. You will learn about connective tissue (CT) using the Melt™ method technique. Why, and easy how to techniques, in as little as 10 minutes a day. • What about my CT? Many doctors now feel it is the missing link between fitness and medicine. CT is an intricate, intelligent three dimensional fluid matrix coursing through your entire body. It supports bones, muscle, nerve and organs. You have billions of sensory nerve endings in your CT. If you have stress, stiffness or sore muscles your CT needs re-hydrating, you definitely have issues in your tissues. You want to learn how to take care of this on a daily basis as it can affect your overall health. • Tight muscles cause joint restriction. We want length and strength balance in all muscles for optimal joint action. Yamuna Body Rolling™ and soft rollers will be used to release tight muscles throughout the body improving alignment, body awareness, and reduced pain. • Daily essential movements? Somatic movement therapy basics will be taught to address your personal areas of restriction. Three basic movement patterns will help bring the spring into your joints and joy back into your favourite sport or activity. Let’s keep you moving in the direction of getting better with age. About the Facilitator: Kim Novotny B Phys. Ed, Co-Owner of Pilates EQ (12 years) Certifications: Core Dynamics Pilates, Melt (hand/foot), Yamuna Body Rolling, Chakra healing. A student of Cranial Sacral Therapy, Ortho Bionomy Therapy, Somatic Movement Therapy and Life! Since I can remember if have always been passionate about movement and sport. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an educator of movement, and inspire others to enjoy the vast benefits of an active lifestyle. After graduating with a Phys-Ed degree I journeyed west to be closer to the mountains as I had a passion for skiing. I started my career at the RGC as a sports professional and never looked back. My journey has taken many twists along the way, all good. Joint pain due to years of personal muscle in-balances, led me to Pilates movement. Pilates changed my life! My curiosity grew about mindful movement and body awareness in a whole new way. I continue to study different ways to help people find their way back to ease of movement one breath at a time. No two people are the same, so the more tools I have added to my tool box, the better I can serve on this path I have chosen.

Winter Recreation & Activity Guide


Fitness RACER CYCLING PROGRAM The Coach – Peter MacPhie Members can expect a high energy, challenging cycling program to help develop and maintain cycling conditioning during the winter months. Indoor stationary training is a must for continuous development of proper pedaling technique and maintenance of strength and endurance. A basic knowledge of cycling, your own bike and trainer are all that is required. Each person will set and accomplish their personal goals during these sessions. 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. Whether you are aiming to nail personal bests or improve your fitness level, this class is aimed towards helping you gain efficiency and develop more power. Members bring in their own bikes and trainers that can be stored at the Club. We have a limited number of Tacx Flow wattage trainers that participants may use but you require your own skewer and training tire. Experience riding a road bike is an asset but certainly not mandatory.
