American Red Cross “Learn to Swim” Program Class Structure

Ist Day of Class

American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors teach swimming skills along with Lifeguards in the water as Swim Aides. Courses are divided into six levels. Swimmers must start at Level 1 and pass each level Beginners (B) and Advanced (A) before registering for the next level. Participants will be given a progress report at the conclusion of each session listing the skills they have completed. Children often need to repeat certain levels before advancing on to the next level. Don’t get discouraged!

All students should report to the locker room where they should dress, shower and wait for the Locker Room Attendant to explain procedures.

Prerequisites We have added prerequisites to our computer registration program to guarantee that everyone is in the correct swimming level. This will help assure that the swim classes move smoothly for everyone.

New to our Program? If you are new to our program and are starting in one of the level programs above 1B, you will need to register in-person, by mail or fax as the on-line registration software will not recognize that you have successfully completed the prerequisites for the program.

Parent Observation and Expectation To create the best possible learning environment, spectators will only be allowed in the pool area for a few minutes on the first day of class and for the entire class on the last day of lessons. On the first day, parents will be excused after roll call and the introductory speech. Depending on the parent’s comfort level, it is not necessary to come in the pool area on the first day of class. Throughout the session, parents/guardians are encouraged to speak with their child’s instructor before or after class to check on the progress of their child.

Pool Temperature Requests have been made by swim participants for varying swim water temperatures. Due to limited capabilities of pool equipment controlling these temperatures, the high school maintenance department is making every effort to maintain a temperature of 81°. *Schedule Changes No Swim Lessons on Wednesday, October 5 Lessons held at New Berlin West High School October 19

In this class you will use the principles of Ayurveda, the timetested holistic healing system of India, to determine your unique body-type and digestive tendencies. Through this process you will learn about the best foods for you as an individual, and also which foods to avoid, especially if you are experiencing imbalance.

Pilates/Body Ball (Adults 18+) Pilates is a combination of physiotherapy and exercise which creates balance through movement, body awareness and breath. The primary focus of Pilates is the ‘powerhouse’ or ‘core of the body’. The strength of the core is what enables us to distribute strength evenly throughout the body so it can work as a pain-free and strong unit. Results of this class are strong, lean muscles. The body ball portion features strong, slow movement with an emphasis on precise body control. This program sculpts your entire body with a blend of isometric and muscle stabilization exercises. The ingenious use of hand-held weights will give you the opportunity to strengthen your body from the ‘inside out’. Your muscles will love this cushioned, no impact form of exercise!

Dogs in Parks Several citizens have recently expressed concern about dogs not being on a leash and concerns about citizens not removing dog waste while walking their dogs in park areas. Dogs are welcome in the parks as long as the handler has the animal on a leash (less than 6 ft. in length) and properly cleans up after the animal. The citation for violation of ordinance 184-14(B) Dogs not on leash is $101.40 and the citation for violation of ordinance 152-10(I) Dog waste not removed is $120.30. These ordinances will be enforced by the New Berlin Police Department. However, during softball and soccer seasons, the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department has experienced some problems with dogs in the parks mixing with sports participants and spectators. With public safety in mind, the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Commission decided to not allow dogs in the spectator areas and on the athletic fields. Signs will be posted in the parks. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department at (262) 797-2443.

Calhoun Park Bridge Replacement Monies were included in the 2010 Budget to replace the deteriorating wooden pedestrian bridge that crosses Calhoun Creek, connecting the north and south sides of the park. Due to immediate safety concerns, the existing bridge was removed in 2010. Following the completion of the Wetland Delineation, Floodplain Analysis, and WDNR permit process, the final project plans were completed, and the project sent to bid in late June. On July 26, 2011, the Common Council awarded the contract for the project. The project is anticipated to commence in August 2011, with substantial completion by the end of the year. The new steel pedestrian bridge and connecting pathways will provide safe access for picnic groups, sport organizations (tournaments & games), and the general public who use this well used community park. Monies for this project will come in part from a Stewardship Fund Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

New Berlin Hills Water Source Improvements Project Monies were included in the 2011 Budget for improvements to the water supply system at New Berlin Hills Golf Course. The current irrigation/water supply system was installed in 1988. Over time, the wells have lost capacity, and the irrigation pond does not sustain enough usable volume for the course to recover from a full irrigation cycle. This increasingly has become a problem in the summer months when proper irrigation is critical to keeping the greens, fairways, tee boxes, and approaches in good condition. In 2009, the city replaced the well components, and also removed sediment from the irrigation pond. In late 2010 plans were completed for the second phase of improvements. In March 2011, the Common Council awarded the contract for Phase 2 which will include installation of a new pump house building, and mechanical control system. Project Construction will commence following the 2011 golf season, with final completion of landscaping in Spring 2012. All projects will be funded entirely by Golf Course Reserve Funds. Should you have any questions on these projects, please contact the New Berlin Parks & Recreation Department at (262) 797-2443, or by email at parkandrec@newberlin.org
