SWIMMING LESSON INFORMATION

What to Expect from Swimming Lessons Support your child’s learning through participation in the recreational swimming programs. Set realistic goals for your child, encouraging them to do their best. Learning to swim can be enjoyable, but like many skills, it takes time, practise and patience. It is important to remember that each swimmer advances at his/her own pace. Not completing a level the first time, or even the second time, simply means there are important skills to continue to improve upon. Success in swimming lessons comes in many different forms - learning new skills, increasing confidence, and gaining a feeling of accomplishment.

What Level Should I Register In? Visit our pool and one of the Aquatic Staff can assist you in determining what level to register in. The Department of Parks and Recreation offers free swimming lesson assessments. Please contact the Deck Supervisor on duty to request a screening during scheduled leisure swim times.

Repeating a level? Show your last report card to the Instructor to allow practise time on skills requiring development. To progress to the next level, all items must be completed.

Lesson Start Time Participants should go to the pool deck at the lesson start time (not earlier). You may wish to escort your child to their lesson on the first day to meet the Instructor. Please remove outdoor shoes in the shower area and pool deck.

24

Deck Supervisor There is a designated Deck Supervisor on deck and available to answer your questions or concerns. They also provide a link between you and the instructor. Ask and the Deck Supervisor will be happy to assist you.

Change Room Admittance Guideline For the comfort of all patrons, children 7 years of age and older must use the appropriate change room of their own gender. If this is not suitable a family change room is available.

Parent’s Day Parent’s Day will take place during the 5th lesson. Parents are invited on deck to watch their child’s swimming lesson and take pictures. Classes will end 5 min. early to give parents the opportunity to talk to their child’s instructor about their progress. If you wish to visit on deck, please remember to remove your shoes! Please note that picture taking is only permitted on Parent’s Day

Make-up Lessons Occasionally lessons may be cancelled due to pool fouling, mechanical, or chemical problems. Makeup classes due to participant’s illness or personal commitments will not be available. Dry-land water safety lessons are part of all learn-to-swim programs. Where a pool may close in an untimely manner, Instructors will use the time to focus on dry land water safety. If this is not possible, a credit may be issued for the missed class.

Pool Fouling/Closure To reduce the number of closures due to pool fouling, participants not toilet trained are required to wear snug fitting plastic pants. No disposable diapers. Also, please keep eating to a minimum prior to swimming. Swim diapers are available at the Customer Service Desk.

Personal Belongings Do not leave valuables and belongings unattended in change rooms or cubicles. Use lockers or take belongings to your program area. The Town of Aurora is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Cell Phones, Filming and Photography Please note that to ensure the privacy of others, the use of cell phone devices, filming or photography will not be permitted in the change rooms, viewing gallery or pool area during swimming programs or recreational swims.

Stroller Strollers are not permitted on the pool deck or in the shower area. Please use the designated stroller parking area located in the family change room.

Family Change Room The family change room is for mixed gender families, unaccompanied children and persons with identified special needs and their caregiver. Everyone else is encouraged to use the gender specific change rooms.

Summer CampS

Integration Services The Town of Aurora welcomes and encourages all children with exceptionalities to participate in any of our summer camp programs. Every effort will be made for a child to participate at a level suitable to their abilities, support needs, program choice and facility access. Arrangements for assistance may be available with one of the Integration Counsellors or Leisure Buddy Volunteers. Let us help you provide a positive experience for your camper. A Participant Requires Support if: • Extra support is required at school in the classroom. • A physical, medical, developmental and/or learning disability exists that affects the safety of the participant or that of other participants. • Extra support is needed at home for basic care such as dressing and toileting. • Participant is currently associated with a support agency or program. Support Options 1. You may provide the one-to-one support yourself in the form of a family member, friend, trained support/social worker or nurse. 2. You may request volunteer support. Leisure Buddy Volunteers are primarily students volunteering their time, and their qualifications are minimal. Although they will participate in a training program, they may not necessarily have experience working with individuals with exceptionalities. There is no additional cost for a Leisure Buddy. The Town of Aurora may request that a child with an exceptionality be accompanied by a support staff instead of a volunteer in order to ensure the health or safety of the child or others involved in our programs. 3. You may request an Integration Counsellor. PLEASE NOTE: The deadline to request an Integration Counsellor for your child is March 31, 2017. Aurora Residents: Integration staff support is available to Aurora residents at no charge. There is no limit to the number of days your child can attend camp if you have made your request before the March 31, 2017 deadline. Requests for an Integration staff after the deadline can be accommodated with an additional fee of $12.88/hr and only if space and staff resources are available. Non-Aurora Residents: Integration staff support is available to non-residents at an additional fee of $12.88/hr. There is no limit to the number of days your child can attend camp if you have made your request before the March 31, 2017 deadline. Requests for an Integration counsellor after the deadline will only be accommodated if space and staff resources are available. How Do I Register? • Look through the current Parks, Recreation & Culture Program Guide, Summer Camps section for a camp that your child may be interested in. • Please contact the Community Programmer before registering to discuss your child’s needs and support requirements. Please call 905-727-3123 ext. 3121. • Register for your program using any of the registration methods listed on page 5. • Our Community Programmer will confirm your registration and support requirements prior to your chosen camp session. PLEASE NOTE • Final decisions regarding support options as outlined above are at the discretion of Town of Aurora staff. • It is at the discretion of Town of Aurora staff to determine whether or not a participant’s support needs are beyond the scope of staff training and knowledge. In these cases, parents/guardians may be required to provide their own support, which will come at their own expense should they be unable to secure funding from a third party. • Participants expecting financial assistance from a third party organization (ie. PLAY) are REQUIRED to notify Town staff if they require one-to-one assistance in the summer by the March 31, 2017 deadline, regardless of when funding is confirmed.

Volunteers Needed

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES For those required to pay for an Integration Counsellor, please note that your child may be eligible for funding through the Ministry of Community and Social Services “Special Services at Home” (SSAH) Program. Inquiries regarding SSAH can be made through the Ministry Office in Aurora at 905-868-8900. REGISTRATION When registering your child, please ensure that you include any and all details on your registration form or that you phone reception at 905-726-4770 to have your family file updated with any specific needs, medical conditions and/or life threatening allergies. Please note that there is no way of indicating this information when using our e-PLAY online registration system.

Become a Leisure Buddy Today!

Are you interested in making a difference in the life of a child with a disability? Then this is the volunteer opportunity for you! This program will link a participant with a volunteer who is enthusiastic and committed to providing support. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, are 14 years of age or older and are available throughout the summer, please contact our Community Programmer at 905-727-3123 ext. 3121 for more information.

summer camps

Junior Tennis Summer Camps JUNIOR TENNIS CAMPS (Ages 6 to 13 years) Junior Tennis Summer Camp is offered for players of all skill levels - beginner to intermediate and advanced skill levels are welcome. The camp is divided into three courts, determined by age and skill level. Campers are taught the fundamentals of the serve, ground strokes and volley in high tempo drills emphasizing balance and footwork. The coaches use balls and court sizes appropriate to the age of the group. Campers cross train (soccer, baseball, frisbee etc.) approximately 20% of each day on the sports field beside the courts. Afternoon and Full-day campers only swim one day per week. Full-day campers must provide their own lunch. All campers should bring water and snacks (all food to be nut-free, as program areas are NUT AWARE). Each camper receives a T-shirt and each Friday is tournament day with pizza and prizes for all.

Following warmup, children participate in a gross motor circuit featuring a main station such as trampoline, high-bar, along with many substations developing the featured skill.

MONKEYNASTIX

parks & Trails Pedestrian Trail System The Town of Aurora is fortunate to have an extensive pedestrian trail system which connects many of its neighbourhood parks, Town Facilities and open space corridors. At present the Town maintains approximately 57 kilometers of trails. Come out and enjoy a leisurely hike through the natural valley land setting of mixed forests, meadows and wetland habitats of the Holland River Valley Trail. This trail is Aurora’s longest trail corridor stretching from Vandorf in the south (just west of Bayview Avenue) all the way up to St. John’s Sideroad at Industrial Parkway North. The trail corridor links municipal facilities such as the Town Hall, the Senior’s Centre and the Aurora Leisure Complex as well as the Aurora Community Arborteum, Sheppards Bush and Lambert Willson Park. Another significant trail corridor is the Willow Farm, Lakeview Trail system, a trail linking parks and linear open space corridors within the forested hills of St. Andrews in northwest Aurora. The topography is very undulating as the trail rises up to one of the highest points elevation within Aurora. All Aurora trails are considered multi-use, with the primary focus being pedestrian hikers. Opportunities also exist for cross country skiers. The majority of our trails are compact gravel surfaces with some asphalt sections through neighbourhood and community parks. Please note that our trails are not groomed or maintained during winter months, and conditions vary widely. Surface conditions can change dramatically during the winter to create potentially hazardous hiking and skiing conditions. All users are advised to respect other trail users, to stay on designated trails and to exercise caution at all times. Community Parks & Sports Facilities The town currently has over 75 parks & open space areas with 36 playgrounds and over 700 acres of woodlots. Please come out and enjoy playgrounds, water splash pads, sports fields, skateboarding and a wide variety of other recreational activities in Aurora’s parkettes, neighbourhood and community parks. We are pleased to announce a new park in Aurora on Thomas Phillips Drive at Alex Brodie Drive. This new park has a children’s water play area, a playground, 1/2 basketball court, pickleball, washroom facilities and on-site parking. For further information please visit the Town’s website at www.aurora.ca/thingstodo MEMORIAL TREE & PARK BENCH DEDICATION PROGRAM Would you like to establish “Lasting Roots” in your community? Are you looking for a unique gift idea for that special person or occasion? Perhaps you feel like making an investment in greening your community? If so, we encourage you to contact the Parks Division

78

to find out more about the memorial tree planting and park bench dedication program. Please call 905-727-3123 ext 3233 or email cwright@aurora.ca. Emerald Ash Borer The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that kills all types of healthy ash trees. The insect was discovered in Aurora in 2011. While the Emerald Ash Borer poses no risk to human health, it is a significant threat to our forests. The town is currently in the tender process for securing a vendor to provide treatment services to combat the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). The contract will provide for the preventative application of a pesticide approved in Canada that has shown to protect ash trees from the EAB. Approximately 2,000 publicly-owned trees along boulevards and rights-of-way have been identified in the Town’s street tree inventory as potential candidates for treatment. Trees meeting the treatment criteria will be marked by Town staff with a small but highly-visible painted dot. Also, through the terms of the contract, residents who wish to protect ash trees on their private property will have the option to contract with our vendor for the same price as the Town. Property owners wishing to have their own trees treated using the Town’s contractor can contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 905-727-3123 ext. 3223 or email stienkamp@aurora.ca. Aurora Adopt-A-ParK Your Chance to Grow with the Community! Over 700 acres of Parkland, an outstanding Trail System and friendly tree-lined streets contribute to Aurora’s natural beauty and make it a place we’re proud to call home. Did you know that the Adopt-A-Park program provides local businesses, community groups and residents with the opportunity to enhance the environment and beautify our town by assisting with the maintenance and developement of Aurora’s parks and trail systems? • Creating the opportunity for citizens to support our parks and green spaces • Sharing the responsibitlity for a clean community • Developing opportunities for youth involvement • Building community pride and a sense of ownership in our parklands Including tree and shrub plantings, there are a number of ways for individuals and interested groups and organizations to become involved in this exciting program. Please contact the Parks Division at 905-727-3123 ext. 3233 for further information or email cwright@aurora.ca.
