New Berlin Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department A Message to Our Friends

Office Information

Winston Churchill once stated: “We make a living by what we get, we make a difference by what we give.” What an appropriate and fitting quote especially in the world of Parks & Recreation! Our department is so fortunate to have hundreds of dedicated, talented, and enthusiastic individuals who give endlessly of their time and talents to make our programs and special events an enriching and enjoyable experience for the families of our community. It’s no secret that when people get involved with their local parks and recreation departments, their quality of life improves. Recreation opportunities encourage citizens to be engaged in their communities as participants, volunteers, advocates, and educators. Recreation activities are key elements of strong, safe, and friendly communities. The benefits of recreation are multiplied when you volunteer to help in our parks and recreation programs. Some ways you can make a difference include; volunteering to coach your son or daughter’s youth soccer, softball or basketball team, becoming a Safety Town Teen Volunteer, participating in a clean up day at your neighborhood park, plant a memorial tree in the parks, volunteer to teach a class or seminar, assist seniors through the New Berlin Senior Citizens Club and/or the Senior Advocate Youth Exchange Service (SAYES), and much more. Remember to take the time to thank the difference makers… those coaches, instructors, leaders, and volunteers who make your family’s leisure time experiences so exciting and memorable.

American Red Cross “Learn to Swim” Program Class Structure American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors teach swimming skills along with Lifeguards in the water as Swim Aides. Courses are divided into four 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.

Special Spring Swim Registration Procedure You may only register for one session of Youth Swim at a time. All Youth winter swim participants (including Tots and Juniors) must wait until Tuesday, March 1 to register for the Spring Session. Evaluations will be distributed to the students on the last day of class. If you are not registering for winter swim, you may register for the Spring Session now.

Prerequisites: We have added prerequisites to our computer registration program to assure that everyone is in the correct swimming level. This will help ensure 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°.

Pool Requirements: 1. Participants should familiarize themselves with the pool rules as posted before entering the water. 2. Showers are required before entering the pool. 3. Remove band-aids and gum before entering the pool. 4. Lockers are provided, participants must provide their own lock. 5.

Only authorized swim personnel and paid patrons in swim attire are allowed in the pool area.

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!

The aerobic portion of Boot Camp Circuit is high intensity, NOT high impact. Each cardio burst is followed by a short period of active recovery. This method burns four times the amount of fat and calories than traditional low-impact aerobics. You will literally become a “lean, mean, fat-burning machine”! In this class you will run, jump, push, pull, throw, catch, balance and react, all the stuff you learned as a kid! Simple choreography makes this class perfect for men or women, all ages and abilities. Modifications will be given for those wishing for a less intense workout. Bring hand weights, a towel or mat and a water bottle. All other equipment is provided. Class # Place:

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 $96.40 and the citation for violation of ordinance 152-10(I) Dog waste not removed is $115.30. 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.
