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.

Contact our Community Programmer to discuss your registration plans and support options by phone at 905-727- 3123 ext. 3121 or by email at akovacs@aurora.ca. 3. Complete a participant “Intake Form” that is to be reviewed by the Community Programmer to determine what kind of support is required in order for the participant to be successful in the integrated, recreational setting. Example: volunteer support, Town staff support (additional hourly costs apply) or external support (required at own cost). 4. Register for your program. 5. The Community Programmer will confirm your support requirements prior to the start of the program and camp chosen.

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? Show your last report card to the Instructor to allow practise time on skills requiring development. To progress to the next level, all items must be completed. LESSON START TIME Participants should go to the pool deck at the lesson start time (not earlier). You may wish to escort your child to their lesson on the first day to meet the Instructor. Please remove outdoor shoes in the shower area and pool deck.

PARENT’S DAY Parent’s Day will take place during the 5th lesson. Classes will end 5 min. early to give parents the opportunity to talk to their child’s instructor about their progress. If you wish to visit on deck, please remember to remove your shoes! Please note that picture taking is only permitted on Picture Day. PICTURE DAY Picture Day will take place during the 6th lesson. Parents are invited on deck to watch their child’s swimming lesson and take pictures. If you wish to visit on deck, please remember to remove your shoes. Please note that picture taking is only permitted on this day. POOL FOULING/CLOSURE To reduce the number of closures due to pool fouling, participants not toilet trained are required to wear snug fitting plastic pants. No disposable diapers. Also, please keep eating to a minimum prior to swimming. Swim diapers are available at the Customer Service Desk. CHANGE ROOM ADMITTANCE GUIDELINE For the comfort of all patrons, children 7 years of age and older must use the appropriate change room of their own gender. If this is not suitable a family change room is available. PERSONAL BELONGINGS Do not leave valuables and belongings unattended in change rooms or cubicles. Use lockers or take belongings to your program area. The Town of Aurora is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

DECK SUPERVISOR There is a designated Deck Supervisor on deck and available to answer your questions or concerns. They also provide a link between you and the instructor. Ask and the Deck Supervisor will be happy to assist you.

CELL PHONES, FILMING AND PHOTOGRAPHY Please note that to ensure the privacy of others, the use of cell phone devices, filming or photography will not be permitted in the change rooms, viewing gallery or pool area during swimming programs or recreational swims.

MAKE-UP LESSONS Occasionally lessons may be cancelled due to pool fouling, mechanical, or chemical problems. Makeup classes due to participant’s illness or personal commitments will not be available. Dry-land water safety lessons are part of all learn-to-swim programs. Where a pool may close in an untimely manner, Instructors will use the time to focus on dry land water safety. If this is not possible, a credit may be issued for the missed class.

STROLLERS AND WHEELCHAIRS Strollers are not permitted on the pool deck. Wheelchairs are permitted, however the wheels must be cleaned prior to entering the pool area. Water wheelchairs are provided in the change rooms. FAMILY CHANGE ROOM The family change room is for mixed gender families, unaccompanied children and persons with identified special needs and their caregiver.

NEW – SPECIALTY PROGRAMS

As of Winter 2019, the following programs have been revised to become “specialty programs”: • Family Lessons • Stroke Improvement 1 • Stroke Improvement 2 • Whip Kick Plus These programs have a lower swimmer to instructor ratio (for example 4:1), which will allow for more practice time for specific skills, and for the instructors to provide more individualized feedback to swimmers. Please contact Gregory Peri (AFLC) at gperi@aurora.ca, or Terri Edwards (SARC) at tedwards@aurora.ca for more information. SPECIALTY – FAMILY LESSONS Age: 3 to 12 years Register for this time slot, rather than a particular level, a real timesaver for large families.

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.

Did you know that the Adopt-A-Park program provides local businesses, community groups and residents with the opportunity to enhance the environment and beautify our town by assisting with the maintenance and developement of Aurora’s parks and trail systems?
