WINTER 2012-2013! MISSION STATEMENT

OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE PLEDGE

The mission of the Hoffman Estates Park District is to enhance the quality of life of our residents and guests by providing first class parks, facilities, programs and services through environmentally and fiscally responsible management practices.

Our satisfaction guarantee is our promise to provide quality parks, facilities, recreation programs and leisure services that meet the expectations of our customers. If you are not satisfied with any recreational program the HEPD provides due to the quality of instruction, the child’s inability to adapt emotionally to the class, or the inappropriate skill level for the registered participant, a full refund will be processed. To determine that a class does not meet their satisfaction, participants must attend the first two class sessions, but request a refund and fill out all appropriate paperwork before the third class meeting. Refund request forms are available at the Triphahn Center, Willow Recreation Center and Prairie Stone Sports & Wellness Center. No processing fee will apply to refunds issued under the satisfaction guarantee policy. If you are not satisfied, we would appreciate your comments, suggestions, or ideas for improvement. Please look for our customer comment cards at all district facilities. We appreciate hearing your positive comments, as well as your suggestions for improvement.

OUR COMMUNITY COMMITMENT The Hoffman Estates Park District remains committed to providing the best recreation and leisure services to our community. With our “satisfaction guaranteed” pledge, residents and their guests can be assured that the Hoffman Estates Park District staff will work to not only meet expectations but surpass them.

Introducing

Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions in our country, as demonstrated by the report of the Centers for Disease Control, which indicates approximately 17% (or 13 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. HEPD wants to help! Consider these facts from the National Conference on State Legislators: - Approximately 13 million U.S. children and adolescents are obese, with a body mass index at or above the 95th percentile. - Obesity is a major risk factor for many serious health conditions, including Type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure and certain cancers. - During the past 40 years, obesity rates for children age 6 to 11 nearly tripled—from 5% to 14%—and more than tripled for adolescents age 12 to 19—from 5% to 17.1%. - Obese adolescents have an 80% chance of becoming obese adults.

At HEPD, we’re taking this epidemic seriously by addressing the ways that we can help parents and their children in our community. As such, we’ve assembled a task force of managers and staff to develop a plan to educate and assist our community to improve health and lead healthier lifestyles. The program, called HEALTH (Helping Everyone Achieve a Lifestyle That’s Healthy), will be multi-faceted and on-going. Initially, we’ll introduce a new publication, HEALTHeKids, for parents that promotes health and wellness in children; particularly those facing weight control issues. Other initiatives may include speakers at mandatory pre-season parent meetings for youth sports. “We have the resources, facilities and programs to help parents,” said Dean Bostrom, Executive Director. “Keeping our kids healthy is good for the entire community.”

- An estimated 61% of obese young people already have at least one additional health risk factor such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol. - Childhood obesity health expenses are estimated at $14 billion annually. - Almost 30% of U.S. children do not exercise three or more times a week. - More than 75% of high school students do not eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

You’ll notice in the guide programs marked with Whenever you see the apple, you’ll know that’s a program that promotes The park district will work with sponsor Alexian Brothers to provide information about ways to keep kids at a healthy weight. Our staff Registered Dietitian, Amy Daum, will be very involved as well, providing fitness and nutrition tips. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, childhood obesity has more than tripled in the United States over the last 30 years. It has contributed to an increase in chronic diseases like high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes, once only seen in adults. To address this serious issue, the HEALTH Program, a District-wide childhood obesity initiative, provides the community with a variety of excellent tools and resources to combat this critical issue.” said Amy Daum, Registered Dietitian for Hoffman Estates Park District.

A publication for parents in Hoffman Estates concerned about the health and wellness of the children in our community.

To receive future issues of through e-mail, text HEALTHeKIDS to 22828.

Adults can benefit from more physical activity in their daily lives, too. This winter, try outdoor skating or sledding at one of our parks. See page 42 for a listing of outdoor ice rinks and sled hills. These are two activities that the whole family can enjoy together. Of course, we have our indoor fitness centers open year round at Prairie Stone™ Sports & Wellness Center, Willow Recreation Center and Triphahn Center. Did you know that if you join Prairie Stone you’ll have access to all three?

Buildings and Grounds Committee — 1 st Tuesday

PRESIDENT

Another exciting new development is indoor soccer. Now, our young soccer players will have a climate-controlled indoor space with turf that looks and feels like real grass and is soft on impact. Soccer is a great way for children to get physical activity in their schedules. Look for the details on page 17.

4 WAYS TO REGISTER

Board Meetings are held monthly at 7:00P at Triphahn Center and Ice Arena.

TREASURER

But this is just the beginning. Throughout 2013 and beyond, you will see new and exciting efforts that work toward our goal to reduce the rate of childhood obesity in the Hoffman Estates community. Be sure to attend our kickoff event, the “HEALTHeKids Fair” on Saturday, March 2 from 10:00A to noon at the Triphahn Center Gym.

The governing body of the park district is comprised of seven elected commissioners who represent the recreational needs of their community for four year, unpaid terms. Park commissioners have the power to levy taxes within prescribed limits, establish or change park district policies, sign agreements, award contracts and possess all of the powers similar to those of a board of directors for a public corporation. Park commissioners work as a board to interpret the park and recreation needs of the community, formulate short and long term plans and inform the public of the purpose, worth and extent of the district’s services, parks and facilities.

COMMISSIONER

At the Hoffman Estates Park District, the health and well-being of our community is of great importance to us. A growing concern nationwide is the obesity rate and at HEPD we are taking steps to address the issue of obesity among our children. As such, we’ve introduced a new initiative called HEALTH, which is an acronym that stands for Helping Everyone Achieve a Lifestyle That is Healthy. As part of this initiative, we’ve created a monthly newsletter to help parents encourage a healthy lifestyle in their children. We’ve changed our STAR Before and After School program to include organized physical activity and healthy snacks. Our Preschool and Early Learning Center are also serving healthy snacks. Our staff registered dietitian has begun attending our Youth Sports Parents’ meetings to discuss nutrition.

With the help of their parents, tots become comfortable in and around the water so they are ready to learn to swim. Children will enjoy songs and games while becoming familiar with the water. Parents will learn techniques to help orient their children to the water and to supervise water activities in a safe manner. TU 6:30P-7:00P

Media Overload?

How many hours a day do your kids spend on cell phones, computers, video games and TV? Probably too many, suggests the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Excessive media use can result in attention problems, school difficulties, sleep and eating disorders, and obesity. In addition, the Internet and cell phones can provide opportunity for illicit and risky behavior. The AAP suggests that parents:

Limit screen time to 1-2 hours per day

Keep televisions, computers and video games out of a child’s bedroom Turn off the TV during dinner As an alternative, get your children moving. Encourage playing at the park, organized or backyard sports, free play and exploring. If you must be inside, try music, dancing, singing, board games or crafts. -healthychildren.org

Preschool Gymnastics

Gymnastics Level 2

(3-5 years — Triphahn)

How Much Activity?

Gymnastics Level 1

Over, under, forward and back — there's an adventure in every class. With the help of their parents, children use incline, rolling and cartwheel mats, along with traditional gymnastic equipment, to improve strength, coordination, balance and confidence.

Preschool and kindergartners improve coordination, strength and balance and build confidence in themselves, all in a safe and professionally-instructed environment. Children will be introduced to skills such as forward rolls, straddle rolls and backward skills. Basic skills will be introduced on each gymnastic event. Triphahn

(6-14 years — Triphahn) Level 2 is a more advanced program, in which children master the skills developed in level one, while learning new skills on floor, bar, beam and vault. One arm cartwheels, backbends, tuck and split jumps and pullovers are a few of the skills learned. TU 5:15P-6:30P

WOLF PA

The Hockey Development Program encompasses three categories designed to take the new player from learning to stand up on skates to, over time, being able to play on a competitive team. We offer two days a week for a very competitive price believing that skating is one of the most difficult sport exercises to learn and master and needs frequent practice to really begin to enjoy and progress. However if you have to miss a day, no problem! Curriculum is designed to enable students to progress at their own speed. It is always recommended to have a child try a public skate first to ensure they are ready to focus on the process of learning to skate. Contact Randy Jordan, Assistant GM/Hockey Director, for more information on these excellent classes at 847–285–5501 or rjordan@heparks.org.

Kindermusik Sign & Sing (0-3 years — Triphahn)

Kindermusik’s Sign and Sing is a developmentally appropriate program for parents and hearing children based on American Sign Language. Using every day items in engaging small and large group activities, we’ll sing songs and practice the sign as we say the words, play with toys and help the children learn both the spoken word and the sign. Parents will learn to spot their babies’ most “teachable moments” and the sign language teaching methods of the experts. Plus they’ll learn to recognize and respond to their children’s versions of signs. When a child is chasing a bubble or asking for the ball, make the sign for it and say the word. So a child has the ways to associate the word with the object: the child holds the ball, hears the parent say the word and then sees the adult make the sign. Throughout the program over 75 signs will be used in various activities and games that we play together. Class fee does not include kit fee of $60 payable to instructor on first day. Kit fee includes: Family Activity Guide, DVD Glossary, and clip-on flashcards. No class March 19 and 26. TU 9:15A-9:55A

Zumba Gold (All Ages - Triphahn)

Tai Chi Lessons (50+ years — Triphahn)

Acting Seminars

The Zumba® Gold Fitness program was designed for anyone from the active older adult, the true beginner and/or people who are not used to exercising, to people who may be limited physically. The main difference between Zumba Gold and Zumba Basic is Zumba Gold is done at a lower intensity, not as fast, but it certainly is as fun. The same great Latin styles of music and dance are used. This class can be prorated. 6 weeks.

Use T'ai Chi Ch'uan's slow, non-strenuous, fluid movements toward life-long health maintenance. This quiet, therapeutic exercise sharpens and calms the mind, loosens and strengthens the body offering greater freedom and range of motion while improving balance, coordination, breathing, circulation and posture.

Be an actor or just act like one! Learn the fundamentals of acting in these 90 minute seminars, taught by an actor, and perfect for theatre beginners and for those who are more advanced and seek to be challenged. 8 weeks.

Golf Outings

1400 Poplar Creek Drive 847–884–0219 Formerly Poplar Creek Country Club and now Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club, the name change is derived from several sources. As part of a multi-million-dollar enhancement project that began in 2010, installation of eight, environmentally-friendly wood bridges lends even greater aesthetics to golfers' journeys. Adding "bridges" to the club name also stresses the importance of these bridges taking golfers over critical flood-plain areas allowing the course to remain open even after heavy rains. Not to be outdone, the new bridges adds a golf history lesson to golfers' rounds. Four bridges are adorned with plaques of famous amateur golfers: Bobby Jones, Chick Evans, Samuel Ryder and Babe Zaharias. Playing tribute to these legends' significant contributions to the game "bridges" the gap between the club's storied past, present and future. As a public facility, Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club feels strongly about the amateur heritage and future of the great game of golf. Generations to come will also enjoy recent enhancements, including 15 renovated golf holes, a vastly expanded golf learning center, a major clubhouse renovation and a new, majestic, outdoor event area with waterfall and pavilion.

Anti-Bullying Policy

Friends of HE Parks Foundation

HEPD cares for the health and well-being of our community and our participants, and will not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind. The Board of Commissioners has approved a comprehensive Anti-Bullying Policy to address bullying or harassment, and all forms of aggressive and violent behaviors that interfere with a participant’s ability to learn or limits involvement. All administrators, staff, parents, volunteers, and participants are expected to refuse to tolerate bullying and harassment and to demonstrate behavior that is respectful and civil.

The Friends of HE Parks Foundation is made up of community volunteers who work together to raise money so that more residents can participate and enjoy recreational opportunities, regardless of social, physical or economic circumstances and limitations. Since its creation in 1998, the Foundation through its scholarship fund, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to benefit hundreds of local youth and their families, enabling them to play sports, dance, skate and swim in programs they once could not afford.

“Bullying” or “harassment” is defined as any gesture or written, verbal, graphic, or physical act (including cyber bullying via the internet, cell phone, personal digital assistant, etc.) that is dehumanizing, intimidating, hostile, humiliating, threatening, or otherwise likely to evoke fear of physical harm or emotional distress. This also includes forms of retaliation against individuals who report or cooperate in an investigation under this policy. Consequences may include, but are not limited to temporary removal from the program, loss of privileges or program suspension.

The Foundation strives to promote events that will raise money to help disadvantaged families of our community be able to enjoy park district programs and facilities. For information on how you can help, contact Peg Kusmierski at 847–310–3617 or pkusmierski@heparks.org.

Save the Date! Foundation Events! Summer 2013— SRT Celebri-tee Golf Outing Fall 2013— Wine & Beer Event
