INFORMATION Please don’t feed the Waterfowl! While it may be tempting to feed the ducks and geese at City Parks, doing so is actually quite harmful. Human food causes malnutrition in waterfowl. Their delayed migration as a result, increases disease, erodes the landscape, and pollutes the water. Please help us preserve the balance of nature, the beauty of the parks and quality of life for neighbors - do not feed the ducks and geese! Thank you for your cooperation. For more information, contact Urbandale Parks & Recreation at 515-278-3963. Urbandale Community Theatre http://www.urbandaletheatre.com. All ages and talent levels are encouraged to be involved.

If you have an e-mail associated with your account, a receipt will automatically be e-mailed to you. You will be notified if a class is cancelled or changed. CLASS CANCELLATION Why would my program be cancelled? All Parks and Recreation programs are run assuming minimum numbers are met.

Evening classes will be cancelled if Urbandale Schools release early due to weather. Classes cancelled because of weather will be made up whenever possible. REFUND POLICY Registration fees for programs cancelled by Parks and Recreation will be fully refunded. Our instructors, in most instances, are hired on the basis of enrollment.

We make every possible effort to add or expand these classes, depending on instructor and space availability.

The Miracle League is a FREE baseball/softball league for children with special needs from age 5 – 18 and adults 19 and older. The Miracle League is just like baseball. Players will bat, round the bases, catch, throw, and hit Home Runs! There are a few differences in how the game is played. • Each player has a buddy that gets to assist them. • Each player will bat once each inning. • Every player is safe, no one is out. • Every player will score a run before the inning is over. • The last player up hits a HOME RUN. • Every game ends in a tie. • A game will last two innings or an hour. • Special rubberized playing surface. Urbandale Parks and Recreation will assign players to teams after registration is complete. Each team will need at least two parent coaches. Sign-up Deadline: April 19. Please register at www.UrbandaleParksAndRec.org. Sessions

Enjoy the players and your experience.

ALL INCLUSIVE PLAYGROUND

The playground will be designed to provide opportunities for children of all ages and abilities, including those with special needs, to enjoy using the equipment and participating in fun outdoor activities. The playground surface will have a cushioned rubberized surface to help prevent injuries and has a completely flat surface to eliminate any barriers to wheelchair-bound or visually impaired participants.

HELP MAKE THIS PLAYGROUND A REALITY

Donations: Checks made payable to the Urbandale All Inclusive Playground Project, c/o Urbandale Parks and Recreation, can be mailed to: Urbandale Parks and Recreation, 3600 86th Street, Urbandale, Iowa 50322. Gifts of $1,000 and more will be permanently recognized at the playground. Questions can be directed to Jan Herke, Director Urbandale Parks and Recreation at (515) 331-6793 or jherke@urbandale.org.

THE PLAYGROUND WILL BE LOCATED NEXT TO THE URBANDALE MIRACLE LEAGUE FIELD, IN NORTHVIEW PARK. Northview Park is also the home of the Urbandale Little League complex, owned by the City and leased to the Urbandale Little League. To build the playground, purchase and install the equipment, plaza, fence, lighting and other miscellaneous features the project will cost $560,000 to complete. This project is spearheaded by the Urbandale Parks and Recreation Department and the Urbandale AllInclusive Playground Committee, under direction of the Mayor, City Council and City Manager.

MORE THAN 30,000 CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS RESIDE IN THE GREATER METRO AREA. Des Moines and Ankeny are homes to All-Inclusive playgrounds, however, a playground like this does not exist for youth in the western suburbs. Please consider making a donation to help support this special project! Check out the website for more information on giving levels and donation opportunities. With your help and support we can make the all-inclusive playground a reality! www.Urbandale.org/ Playground

Balance Board Fitness Class*

This is a new and exciting class that is a tremendous workout on top of the water, involving stabilization, endurance, strength and fun! This safe and fun workout is designed to grow core and joint stabilization, improve over-all fitness level, and burn calories. Workouts will vary from High Intensity Interval Training, Core Workout, Pilates & Yoga! Holding a Yoga pose on top of the water will challenge your focus, strength, core and stability. Lose the pose and fall in the water! Pilates on a balance board in the pool takes it to the next level. Intervals involve squats, lunges, rows and more at a higher performance level than on land or water. Minimum 5; maximum 25. Registration Deadline: One week before the start of the class. Session

Yoga with Beth

For many years, yoga has helped people of all ages and walks of life improve their sense of health and well-being. Yoga combines fluid movements with focused and attentive breathing. This aligns the mind and spirit with the physical body, creating a perfect “union”, or “yoga”. In today’s hectic world, daily stresses and constant mental distractions put tension into our bodies, sometimes to the point of making us ill. The purpose of yoga is to soothe the inner spirit by calming the mind and body. Yoga poses help slow us down, and we naturally become more focused and relaxed. As students grow in their yoga experience, the poses become more challenging, allowing the body to grow stronger and more limber. At any level, the benefits of yoga are the same-stronger muscular endurance, sharpened mental clarity, deeper flexibility, improved circulation and immunity and above all a heightened sense of well-being. Let yoga start you on a journey you can enjoy for a lifetime-body, mind and spirit! This class is for active individuals who are injury-free. Monday classes last 6-weeks, Thursday classes last 7-weeks. Instructor: Beth Damm. Registration Deadlines: May 6, May 9, June 24, July 5 Session

Have you ever wanted to run a 5K but excuses get in the way? I don't know where to start. I can't do this by myself. I used to run but I am out of shape now. I don't have time. Join us at SweatFIT for a 7-week 5K group training program. No running experience is necessary, just a pair of good running shoes. We will start at the beginning and work up to a 5K during the program. The program is designed to get you running for 30 minutes without stopping by the end of the 7 weeks. Your registration fee for the 5K at the end of the program will be covered in the registration fee for this group training program. This is a group training program where you will not only get support from your coach, but you will also have the support of the other runners in this program that are working toward the same goal. We will meet as a group 3 times per week for 45 minutes each. Saturday mornings (see times below), Tuesday and Thursday evenings (see times below). You will also be given "homework" to complete on Sundays or Mondays that will take no longer than 45 minutes. Everyone is busy; can you spare 3 hours per week to get to your first 5K? Our training sessions will be outside and will start from the SweatFIT Fitness Studio (unless otherwise indicated by your coach). Instructor: Mark Seaton. Min 3 / Max 20 participants. Registration includes SweatFIT Run Club shirt and 5K registration fee. Registration Deadline: April 15, June 17 Session
