Road Rally Looking for an adventure? If so, you are sure to enjoy the challenge of the 31st annual Road Rally! Grab your neighbors and friends to create a team of 4-6 adults per vehicle. Each group is given a map and a bag of clues, but only teamwork, logic, and luck will keep you on track. Some clues are helpful while others are designed to throw you off course. This exciting, and somewhat physically challenging, four-hour scavenger hunt on wheels will test your mind, body, and teamwork, so put on your thinking caps and start your engines! At the completion of the rally, teams will gather for an awards presentation and socialize at a pizza dinner. This fun-filled event is a cooperative effort of the Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Lisle, Naperville and Woodridge Park Districts, so space is limited. Letters will be e-mailed to each team captain around the first week of April. REGISTRATION DEADLINE: W, Apr 19 LOCATION: TBD AGES: All Ages Day DateS Sa Apr 22

ARRP Driver Safety Course Why take a driver safety course? Because driving has changed since you first got your license. Cars have changed, so have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel on every day. Some drivers age 50+ have never looked back since they got their first driver’s licenses, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills. By taking a driver safety course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You’ll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. You must attend both days to receive certificate. You may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course. Consult with your agent for details. Day M/Tu M/Tu

Duplicate Bridge This contract bridge game is called duplicate because the same bridge deal (i.e. the specific arrangement of the 52 cards into the four hands) is played at each table and scoring is based on relative performance. In this way, every hand, whether strong or weak, is played in competition with others playing the identical cards, and the element of skill is heightened while that of chance is reduced.

Gold takes the popular Latin-dance inspired workout of Zumba and makes it accessible for seniors, beginners or others needing modifications in their exercise routine. Zumba Gold builds cardiovascular health by challenging the heart and working the muscles of the hips, legs and arms with dance moves. The Zumba® Gold-Toning program combines the enticing world rhythms of the Zumba Gold® program with the strength-training techniques of the Zumba® Toning program, creating an easy-to-follow, health-boosting dance-fitness program for the active older adult as well as beginners. Through modified, dynamic lightweight resistance training, participants can help prevent agerelated bone loss, increase muscle strength and definition, decrease body fat and improve mobility, posture, coordination and cognition.

martial arts

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean Style of combining the hands and feet in a method of unarmed self-defense. Instruction is centered around physical conditioning, a series of patterned movements that develop grace and coordination, and controlled sparring and self-defense practice. Black Belt instructors teach proper technique in these areas, monitor all students practice, and provide a structured teaching environment for students of all ages. Tae Kwon Do can bring out a heightened sense of confidence, physical awareness, and well-being in each and every student. All students begin at the rank of white belt. To advance to a higher belt or rank, the student must demonstrate his or her abilities at periodic promotional examination held at Kim’s Black Belt Academy. Note: Uniforms are available through the instructor. LOCATION: CC, Hickory/Oak

sports

Girls in this program will be divided into 3 leagues: Instructional (6-8 years old), Minor (9-10 years old) and Junior (11-12 years old). These age requirements are as of January 1, 2017. All registered girls are placed on a team. Participants must register by March 4, 2017. The early bird registration deadline is Tuesday, February 7. Practices start in mid-April. Please stop by the Community Center during regular business hours to fill out the registration form along with the required softball-specific form. Forms may be faxed to you upon request or may be printed off of the Park District website. Games are played at Orchard Hill Park.

Umpires Needed If you know of anyone 14 years or older who would like to be an umpire, call (630) 353-3300 for more information. Girls Softball Summer Southwest Suburban League In an effort to provide an alternative to our 8-10 game in-house program, we are again offering the opportunity to play in the SWS League. The SWS originated from the fact that while many communities offer in-house programs through all age levels, participation at the older levels might often be too low to make an in-house-program viable. By combining teams from other communities, participants are able to play a full schedule. The Southwest Suburban league plays an 18-20 game schedule and games are usually split home and away. Some of the other communities include Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Naperville, Plainfield and Romeoville. The season starts in late April and runs through July. We will be offering 10U, 12U and 14U teams. Those that have played in the SWS previously will receive priority over those that are new to the program if they register by Monday, February 6. See page 45 for program location, dates, times and fees.

In an effort to provide an alternative to our 8 - 10 game in-house program, we are again offering the opportunity to play in the SWS League. The SWS originated from the fact that while many communities offer in-house programs through all age levels, participation at the older levels might often be too low to make an inhouse-program viable. By combining teams from other communities, participants are able to play a full schedule. The Southwest Suburban league plays an 18 - 20 game schedule and games are usually split home and away. Some of the other communities include Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Naperville, Plainfield and Romeoville. The season starts in late April and runs through July. We will be offering 10U, 12U and 14U teams. Those that have played in the SWS previously will receive priority over those that are new to the program if they register by Monday, February 6. Age is as of January 1, 2017. Registration deadline: Sa, Mar 11. LOCATION: Orchard Hill Park, Softball Field 1

Arson Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward. To provide a tip or get more information about the Arson Tipster Program, contact the Woodridge Park District at (630) 353-3300.

Please help us watch the parks!

» Westmont Park District Community Center 75 E. Richmond Street, Westmont Waterfowl Concerns Regular feeding of waterfowl can cause dependency on people for food, bird and people conflicts, and the spread of disease. Please refrain from feeding the birds at Lake Carleton and Lake Harriet along with other lakes in the area. The waterfowl have become used to handouts and no longer migrate south in the winter. The once wild birds have become tame and have lost their fear of cars and people, which can lead to traffic problems and possible injury. With the growing populations of waterfowl in small concentrated areas, the competition for food is high. The less nutritious handouts and harsh weather increase their susceptibility to life threatening diseases. We ask that you please do not feed the waterfowl. Thank you for your support. For more information, please contact the Woodridge Park District at (630) 353-3300.

Satisfaction Guaranteed and Refund Procedure

Behavior Policy

The Woodridge Park District offers a “Satisfaction Guaranteed” Policy for all of our recreation programs! (Trips, summer day camps, pool passes and one-day events excluded). We are committed to giving the residents of Woodridge quality programs at reasonable prices, and we are prepared to stand behind the programs we offer. If you are not completely satisfied with the program after attending two classes, stop by the Community Center before the third meeting to fill out an “unsatisfied” refund form. We will invite you to repeat a class at no charge, receive a credit toward another program in the session, or receive a full refund (minus $5 administrative charge).

Participants/parents/guardians/spectators shall exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The Park District developed the following guidelines to help make programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. The Park District may develop additional rules for particular programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff. Participants/parents/guardians/spectators shall: 1. Show respect to all participants, staff, referees, volunteers and spectators; and take direction from staff. 2. Refrain from using abusive or foul language. 3. Refrain from threatening or causing bodily harm to self, other participants, spectators, referees and staff. 4. Respect all equipment, supplies, and facilities. 5. Not possess any weapons

No refund will be granted after the third meeting of the program or after 50% of the classes have been held (whichever is earlier) with the exception of a written medical excuse prior to completion of the program. A $5 administrative charge will be deducted from the amount of refund for each program, including refunds for medical reasons. Medical excuses will result in a pro-rated refund based upon the number of classes held prior to the date listed on the physician’s excuse. No refunds will be given for a trip unless there is a replacement participant or the trip is cancelled. The Park District does reserve the right to cancel a program if the enrollment is not sufficient to justify sponsorship of the activity. Participants will receive a phone call and the option of a refund or leaving the balance on their account. We ask for your feedback to help us serve our residents to the best of our ability and to achieve our goal to make this the most cooperative, public accessible park district in the state. Photography/Videotaping Policy The Woodridge Park District photographs and videotapes participants in its programs, special events or facilities to publicize recreational opportunities. We do not use any identification in our brochures. By registering for a program, participants and parents/ guardians of participants consent to being photographed and videotaped. These photographs and videotapes will be used to promote the Park District through press releases, brochures, the web site and other promotional materials. Please tell the instructor and photographer if you do not want to be photographed.

Staff will use a positive approach regarding discipline. Staff will periodically review rules with participants during the program session. If inappropriate behavior occurs, prompt resolution will be sought, specific to each individual’s situation. The Agency reserves the right to dismiss a participant from a program or a parent/guardian/ spectator from a program area whose behavior is inappropriate or endangers the safety of himself/herself or others. Special Note To Parents The Woodridge Park District provides a safe and stimulating environment for your child’s growth, please help us maintain our high-quality programs. • Safety: Please drop off and pick up your child at the classroom door. • Age: To enroll in a class, a child must have attained the proper age of the desired class by the first class session. • Proof of Age: Proof of age in the form of a birth certificate may be required. If a child is not the appropriate age for a class, he/she will be dropped from the program. • Parent & Child Classes: Siblings of the enrolled children may not attend class. Rotary Club of Woodridge Program Assistance Plan The Rotary Club of Woodridge acknowledges the need for residents with an economic hardship to enrich their lives through participation in recreation programs. To ensure equal access to recreation programs throughout the Woodridge Park District, the Rotary Club of Woodridge will provide funding assistance/scholarships for District residents in financial need subject to available and fiscal year appropriations. Assistance may be in the form of a payment plans whereby the cost of the program will be spread over a period of time to allow the family/individual to afford the program as determined by the District or may be a partial scholarship whereby the cost of the program will be reduced according to the guidelines and the difference reimbursed by the Rotary Club. Applications are available at the Woodridge Park District Community Center. Applications will be considered for approval within 3 working days of submission and are completely confidential. Residents using the Program Assistance Plan will follow normal registration procedures. For more information, please go to the Community Center and pick up an application. Participants must reside within the boundaries of the Woodridge Park District to be eligible.
