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. Participants will pay instructor on day of class.

GIRLS SOFTBALL 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 June. We will be offering 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 4. Age is as of January 1, 2019.

JASON IMRISEK WINS THE WOODRIDGE PARK DISTRICT COACH OF THE YEAR AWARD

sports

The Woodridge Park District has chosen Jason Imrisek as the 2018 Coach of the Year. Jason, who has

been nominated before, has passionately strived to promote player development in a youth sport atmosphere. He’s been a positive role model since 2012 as a coach for the Woodridge Park District. Jason has coached almost every season since 2012. Soccer, softball, basketball, baseball and now flag football are sports he coaches or has coached previously. Jason grew up playing multiple sports and he wanted to give back to the community while creating an opportunity for youth. Jason jokingly said, “It’s probably best that my community volunteerism doesn’t involve cooking lessons.” Jason’s coaching style changes depending on each respective team

he coaches but his philosophy remains the same. He believes “practices should be filled with small competitive battles. Team sports are often associated with unselfish play but they are often filled with competitive 1 v 1 battles. It’s a new challenge every season because every team is different.” He hopes to see more people step up in our community to be a volunteer coach. Congratulations to Jason Imrisek for his overall achievements and his volunteer coaching efforts. Special recognition also goes to Jack Davey, Tom Lyp, Al Kikilas, Dave Whitman and Josh (Bubba) Williams for also being nominated for the 2018 Coach of the Year award.

MEMORIAL TREE PROGRAM

WATERFOWL CONCERNS

The Woodridge Park District Memorial Tree program provides residents the opportunity to purchase a tree in memory of a loved one or to honor a special occasion. Your participation in the Memorial Tree program will not only provide a lasting memory, but will also help to beautify our parks and trails. In addition to the tree, a bronze plaque is available and may include the name of the tree, year of dedication, name of person the memorial is for and a brief personalized message. A Park District staff member will assist in locating the site, choosing the tree, and selecting the wording for the plaque. Planting of the tree can be completed in the spring before May 15 or in the fall before October 15. For more information, contact Ryan Bordewick, Planner and Landscape Designer, at (630) 353-3300.

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). 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.

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 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.

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. 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.

The Woodridge Park District in partnership with the Woodridge Rotary 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 plan 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 program guidelines.

Complete Woodridge Park District program registration form.* Complete Rotary scholarship application.* Bring forms and register at Community Center or the Athletic Recreation Center (ARC) The Woodridge Park District will notify applicants within three business days of the application status. *Forms are available at www.woodridgeparks.org.
