Presenting the 2019 Season

It’s a simple question - why an allfemale season? The question may be simple. The answer, however, is a bit more complex. I know what it’s not. It’s not political activism, it’s not marketing, and it’s not because there aren’t plenty of perfectly good male artists out there that I know this community would love. But I also know that it’s not by accident. It was a conscious choice. I chose to present a season of women artists and bands because their music, their stories, and their voices resonated with me. I felt connected, comforted, and enlightened as I listened to their work. Each of them offer a unique perspective, one that I think our rapidly-growing community wants and needs to hear. These artists, at this time, just felt like the right thing to do. I know that’s still not a good enough answer, but maybe it’s a start. I hope it’s enough to intrigue you, to make you want to learn more about these artists, and join me in welcoming them across our stage. See you at the theatre,

COVER: Recognizing Pat Mackenzie, Local Lacrosse Volunteer for 40 Years! The Elora Mohawks Jr B lacrosse team won a National Championship last August. This championship season is a significant accomplishment for all the players and volunteers who work with the team. This championship was certainly celebrated by many within Centre Wellington. Often championship teams receive a significant amount of well-deserved recognition. What is sometimes lost behind the scenes is the contributions made by volunteers who consist of executive, coaches, trainers, managers, and parents who all contribute significant time to all sports teams. Pat Mackenzie, or “Wheels” as she is known to many has been a volunteer with local lacrosse organizations since 1979. She volunteered with the former Fergus Minor Lacrosse association, the Fergus Thistles, and she has volunteered with the Elora Mohawks as the team trainer since 1992. Some of Pat’s highlights over the past 40 years include the Fergus Thistles National Championships in 1986, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1992, and the Elora Mohawks National Championships in 2005 and 2018. Pat was recognized by the Mohawks with the Annie McDonald Award at the end of the 2018 season. This award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution or who has taken a leadership role as either a builder or promotor of the Mohawk lacrosse organization. During her time as trainer Pat has travelled across Ontario and Canada, and she has represented her team in a positive way. Pat ultimately volunteers her time because she enjoys the time with the team. She loves the game of lacrosse, and she enjoys seeing these players aged 17-21 grow and improve during their time with the club.

Strollers Due to their size, and the possibility of restricting change room exits, unattended strollers are to be left outside of the change rooms. Strollers are not to be on the pool deck. We apologize for the inconvenience, however we need to ensure all exits and the pool deck are maintained free of obstructions in case an evacuation is required.

AQUATICS

Swimming Lessons We offer most swimming levels at every lesson time frame. This format of programming allows parents to register multiple children at the same time. Most lessons are 45 minutes in length in order to provide additional practice time for swimmers. In order to coordinate all of our swimmers, instructors will teach multi-level classes.

i

In order to offer a wide range of lesson times we often combine our Swim Kids 7/8/9 & 10 swimming levels in one class. This Spring we are programming some of these lessons with a smaller range of levels. Swim Kids 7/8 classes and Swim Kids 9/10 classes will run separately at the following times: Sundays 7:00-8:00pm and Mondays 7:00-8:00pm

Not sure what level to register in? Please call the Sportsplex, 519.846.9691 x 338 to arrange a time for a FREE SKILLS ASSESSMENT by one of our Aquatic Staff. Cancelled Classes Classes with low enrolment will be cancelled approximately 1 week before programs start. Register early to avoid having the program you want cancelled. Registering early gives us a better idea of which programs are of interest to you. People often wait until the last minute to register only to find out that the program is full, or has been cancelled due to low registration. Registering early increases your program choices. If you are currently enrolled in lessons and concerned about registering in the wrong level you can transfer between levels if a change is needed. Check with your child’s instructor after lesson 8. Deck Supervisor During swimming lessons there is a deck supervisor who oversees all lessons. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress he or she is available to answer your questions.

Page 22

Missed Classes If you miss a scheduled lesson we are unable to make them up. Transfers You can transfer classes prior to the start of the third lesson if there is space available. Private Lessons Private lessons run in the same nine lesson format as all other lessons. If this doesn’t fit your schedule, we do offer “one time” private lessons. When registering online for semi private lessons you can register one child online which will reserve the lesson for you. You will need to contact the Sportsplex to register the second child. For more information call the Supervisor of Aquatic Services, 519.846.9691 x 338. Swim Lesson Progressions Did you know your child may repeat a level multiple times before completing all of the requirements successfully? When registering your children, please ensure you register them in the correct level. Swimming skills build from one level to the next. If your child hasn’t completed a level, he or she may not have the skills required to be successful in the next level.

Change Rooms Children 6 years of age and older must use gender specific change rooms, or the family change room.

Swim Lesson Report Cards Your child will receive a report card booklet that will track his or her progress throughout the swimming levels. Please bring your child’s report card to their first class and give it to his or her instructor. If your child is not present for the last swim lesson you can pick up their report card at the front administration desk at the Sportsplex. Swimming with Clothes The Red Cross includes “Swim with clothes” components to lessons to make swimmers more prepared in case of an unexpected fall into water. During our 6th and 9th (or final) lessons all swimmers are reminded to wear clothes over top of their bathing suits. The following clothing is recommended. Pre-School and Swim Kids 1-4 – T-Shirt and Shorts Swim Kids 5-10 – Long Pants, Long sleeve shirts If you forget clothes, or miss the class these skills are included for the experience only. They are not required to complete the level.
