PHYSICAL LITERACY & SPORT FOR LIFE Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. ~ International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014

Competence Development of fundamental movement skills (e.g. run, wheel, jump, throw) in different environments (land, water, air, ice/snow).

Confidence Developed in welcoming and inclusive environments that allow everyone to participate at their own abilities in a way that challenges them.

Motivation Developed in program environments that are fun and exciting, that have a purpose to develop skills, and facilitate knowledge about activities to value the importance of being active.

At its essence, quality sport and physical activity is achieved when the right people do the right things at the right times, which leads to positive experiences for participants. There are a number of elements, designed with everyone in mind, including women and girls, indigenous populations, participants with exceptionalities, and newcomers to Canada, that can lead to quality sport experiences in any sport program. Good programs that are developmentally appropriate: • participant centered • progressive and challenging • well planned • designed for meaningful competition

Good people, who are caring and knowledgeable include: • coaches, officials, instructors and teachers • parents and caregivers • partners • leader

Good places, creating good feelings: • inclusive and welcoming • fun and fair • holistic • safe 8

Town of Aurora | Community Services | www.aurora.ca

Look for this symbol throughout the program guide to identify programs that are enriched with physical literacy.

SWIMMING LESSON INFORMATION

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SWIMMING LESSONS Support your child’s learning through participation in the recreational swimming programs. Set realistic goals for your child, encouraging them to do their best. Learning to swim can be enjoyable, but like many skills, it takes time, practise and patience. It is important to remember that each swimmer advances at his/her own pace. Not completing a level the first time, or even the second time, simply means there are important skills to continue to improve upon. Success in swimming lessons comes in many different forms learning new skills, increasing confidence, and gaining a feeling of accomplishment. WHAT LEVEL SHOULD I REGISTER IN? Visit our pool and one of the Aquatic Staff can assist you in determining what level to register in. The Aquatics division offers free swimming lesson assessments. Please contact the Deck Supervisor on duty to request a screening during scheduled leisure swim times. REPEATING A LEVEL?

PARKS & TRAILS PEDESTRIAN TRAIL SYSTEM The Town of Aurora is fortunate to have an extensive pedestrian trail system which connects many of its neighbourhood parks, Town facilities and open space corridors. Presently the Town maintains approximately 62 kilometers of trails. Come out and enjoy a leisurely hike through the natural valley land setting of mixed forests, meadows and wetland habitats of the Holland River Valley Trail. This trail is Aurora’s longest trail corridor stretching from Vandorf in the south (just west of Bayview Avenue) all the way up to St. John’s Sideroad at Industrial Parkway North. The trail corridor links municipal facilities such as the Town Hall, the Senior’s Centre and the Aurora Family Leisure Complex as well as the Aurora Community Arborteum, Sheppard’s Bush and Lambert Willson Park. Another significant trail corridor is the Willow Farm, Lakeview Trail system; a trail linking parks and linear open space corridors within the forested hills of St. Andrews in northwest Aurora. The topography is very undulating as the trail rises up to one of the highest points of elevation within Aurora. All Aurora trails are considered multi-use, with the primary focus being pedestrian hikers. Opportunities also exist for cross country skiers. The majority of our trails are compact gravel surfaces with some asphalt sections through neighbourhood and community parks. Please note that our trails are not groomed or maintained during winter months, and conditions vary widely. Surface conditions can change dramatically during the winter to create potentially hazardous hiking and skiing conditions. All users are advised to respect other trail users, to stay on designated trails and to exercise caution at all times. COMMUNITY PARKS & SPORTS FACILITIES The town currently has over 75 parks and open space areas including 44 playgrounds encompassing over 700 acres, 3 children’s water-play splash pads, 35 soccer fields, 18 ball diamonds and a wide variety of other recreational activities. Please come out and enjoy what Aurora has to offer! Our latest addition is Thomas Coates Park; it is located at 234 Mavrinac Blvd. This park has tennis, pickleball and basketball courts, a playground, an open play-space and on-sight parking. For further information please visit www.aurora.ca/thingstodo EMERALD ASH BORER The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that kills all types of healthy ash trees. The insect was discovered in Aurora in 2011. While the Emerald Ash Borer poses no risk to human health, it is a significant threat to our forests. The Town currently has a vendor in place to provide treatment services to combat the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer. The contract will provide for the preventative application of a pesticide approved in Canada that has shown to protect ash trees from the EAB. Approximately 2,000 publicly-owned trees along boulevards and rights-of-way have been identified in the Town’s street tree inventory as potential candidates for treatment. Trees meeting the treatment criteria will be marked by Town staff with a small but highly-visible painted dot.
