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, 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.

Sport Ready 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. Winter: Monday | January 6 – March 16 | $125 Class cancelled February 17

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. Winter: Saturday | January 11 – March 21 Class cancelled February 15

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. Freerunning 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 Craig Pettie - 5th Dan (degree black belt), Sensei Raye Willms - 2nd Dan, Sensei Elise Leong-Sit - 1st Dan, Sensei Amanda Ibbotson - 1st 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 Craig Pettie has been teaching youth programs in the University area since 1991. He started karate in 1989 and received his Shodan, 1st degree black belt, in 1992. He is a founder of the Bushido Karate Association and currently holds a 5th degree black belt. He successfully coached all of the Derrick’s karate instructors from white belt to their current black belts. Sensei Craig is a passionate and thoughtful instructor. He believes in practical self defense and brings aspects of Jitsu and Judo to the curriculum. 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.

JIU JITSU A positive program promoting self-confidence while motivating you to push yourself to goals you never thought possible. Believe in yourself and success will follow, as confidence is gained so too is success. Elegant and powerful, Jiu Jitsu uses leverage and balance to obtain control, eliminating the need for strength. Adjustments can be made to fit personal physical needs. The art of Jiu Jitsu includes a never-ending supply of knowledge in strikes, throws, locks and restraints. Instructor: Sean Gerke Sean graduated with a degree in criminology that lead him into the field of law enforcement, where he was introduced to defense principles and control tactics. Sean was able to gain tremendous practical experience over 9 years of working in several different environments. In 2010 Sean found his passion when he took his first Brazilian jiu jitsu class. From there he was hooked and has become a huge part of his life. In 2010 Sean became a licensed mixed martial arts judge and has been doing it ever since. The highlight of his career was judging a UFC event when they came to Edmonton. Instructor: Terry Myers Terry was raised in Avondale, NL where he got his start in sports and represented NL in national and regional events in hockey and softball. After graduating with a BA in Social & Cultural Anthropology, he went to Korea to teach English. Terry started to train in MMA in 2009 and transitioned into jiu jitsu in early 2010. He has been competing consistently locally and internationally for the past 9 years. He is currently a Brown Belt and has been an instructor at Brazil-021 Edmonton for the last 4 years. Terry is extremely passionate about BJJ and the Boston Bruins.

Children’s Jiu Jitsu Jiu Jitsu is often described as an art of self defense, an art of last resort to be used when reason has failed to resolve a conflict. This program will help build a child’s selfconfidence, strength and courage. It is an excellent choice for children's self defense, teaching children not how to hit, but how to avoid being hit. Children are led through drills, exercises and scenarios designed to help them develop awareness and ability to successfully escape an attack or confrontation.

It is becoming more common to encounter rude, inappropriate, aggressive and violent people. At work, in school and even when we are out living our lives, it is not a matter of “if” we are confronted, it’s a matter of when. How you respond in that moment is important. The first 5 seconds of an aggressive or violent encounter are the most critical. You response determines the outcome, good or bad. In this course you’ll learn to weaponize your mind and body. This course will shatter what you think and know about self defense! Discover the mental shift you need that may save you mentally, emotionally and physically when faced with aggression or violence. Learn how to reset your brain's filter to stop sensory gating critical threat cues. Turn your senses into a finely tuned advanced early warning system. Gain understanding of why mind and body fails you in confrontation, verbal or physical, unless you understand what it is attempting to do. We will focus on four skills that allow you to control the 5 critical seconds of an encounter and beyond. Weaponizing against violence has nothing to do with fighting or competing. It requires no special skills or athletics. It is a process of control developed through awareness, gained through understanding and accepting the realities of violence.

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 as they would be required to without a lifejacket. A single adult may actively supervise a maximum of three children at one time.

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).

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 Pilates is an effective mind and body-conditioning program to improve and maintain your wellbeing in sports and everyday life. Particular emphasis is placed on the power centre of the body, thus improving posture and movement patterns. Pilates Professional: Janet Thompson (Mat, Reformer, ISP) Jan has a diverse fitness and education background. She holds a Bachelor of Education degree, and is bilingual, speaking English and French. Jan also holds certifications through S.P.R.A. Can-Fit-Pro, as a fitness instructor and Personal Trainer. Jan began taking pilates classes in 2003, hoping to strengthen her core stability, an area that was missing in her fitness training. Pilates gave her an understanding of proper movement in her body. Pilates helped reduce stress in her busy life. Her interest and passion led her to become a certified stott pilates instructor in 2005. She instructs group classes and private sessions. Pilates Professional: Elaine Newby Elaine has worked in fitness testing and programming for 30 years.

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.
