<strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong><br />

Expansion 2012<br />

On Friday October 12th the <strong>Club</strong><br />

celebrated the Grand Opening of the<br />

new 86,000 square foot expansion.<br />

Over 700 happy members showed up<br />

to show their support and celebrate<br />

the new beginning the <strong>Club</strong> is<br />

moving into with new facilities and<br />

programming that members can be<br />

proud of for many years to come. If<br />

you haven’t checked out the new<br />

areas, make sure to come to the <strong>Club</strong><br />

in the next couple of weeks to see<br />

what is new.<br />

The <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is proud to use FSC-certified paper<br />

in the production of this newsletter, demonstrating our<br />

commitment to the environment.


Fellow <strong>Club</strong> Members,<br />

P r e s i d e n t ’ s M e s s a g e<br />

D a n H a ly k | 4 0 3 . 2 8 9 . 5 5 1 1 | c a lga ry w i n t e r c l u b.c o m<br />

As fall turns to winter, the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is alive with programs, activities and events for Members of all ages and<br />

interests utilizing the existing and new areas of the <strong>Club</strong>. Our <strong>Club</strong> reached a number of major milestones in the fall: the<br />

opening of the main Expansion building, the completion of the doubles squash court, and the return of the majority of our<br />

upper parking lot. This leaves the new tennis building and the tennis and curling parking areas as the final items of Phase 1 of<br />

our Expansion Project to be completed. On behalf of the Board and <strong>Club</strong> Management, I would like to thank all Members of<br />

the CWC community for your patience, understanding and support as we worked our way together through the largest single<br />

expansion effort in the history of our <strong>Club</strong>. Your support and patience is also appreciated as our <strong>Club</strong>’s Management and Staff<br />

work diligently to ramp up utilization of our new 86,000 square feet of space. We can all look forward to the tremendous array<br />

of new programs and opportunities that are and will become available to Members over the coming months.<br />

Now that Phase 1 of our Expansion Project is near full completion, Management and the Board will be paying close attention<br />

to the utilization of both our new and existing facilities. A particular area of focus will be parking. While we will gain<br />

approximately 50 new stalls behind tennis, the loss of several stalls located in the police parking lot will minimize the gain in<br />

our overall parking capacity. We are very interested to understand how an anticipated increase in activity at the <strong>Club</strong> can be<br />

supported by our parking infrastructure. Over the next while, Management will be looking for choke points and problem times<br />

and will be striving to manage operations with a view to minimizing parking challenges and Member frustration.<br />

Rumors often circulate within the <strong>Club</strong> in regards to member capacity. I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with<br />

the following facts relating to our Membership:<br />

<strong>•</strong> As at October 1, 2012, the <strong>Club</strong>’s base of active shareholder accounts consists of 1,830 Regular, 578 Senior, 176 Heritage<br />

and 4 Select Wait-list – for a total of 2,588 active shareholders.<br />

<strong>•</strong> With all family members and categories accounted for, there are currently 7,615 active CWC Members. This compares to<br />

a total of 7,550 in October 2011 and 7,610 in October 2007.<br />

<strong>•</strong> The Board of Directors remains committed to our pre-expansion commitment to test-drive our “new” <strong>Club</strong> for at least<br />

a year before considering any changes to our shareholder capacity. To this end, <strong>Club</strong> Management has been directed to<br />

keep the “Active Shareholder Roster” at or below the Board-approved maximum of 1,830 shares.<br />

<strong>•</strong> Given the <strong>Club</strong>’s demographics, on an annual basis there are generally more shareholders changing to “Senior Active”<br />

status than there are new shareholders entering the <strong>Club</strong>. Going forward, the <strong>Club</strong> will continue to focus on generating<br />

new membership sales and achieving a high conversion rate for our young adults in order to keep our membership base<br />

vibrant and strong and the <strong>Club</strong>’s operating plan viable and sustainable.<br />

As has been previously stated in this publication, there has been no Board decision to increase the membership of the <strong>Calgary</strong><br />

<strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong>. This is confirmed by the fact that our total membership number has essentially not changed over the past five<br />

years. Going forward, the Board will work with <strong>Club</strong> Management to monitor and evaluate our operations (including<br />

monitoring utilization of various facilities within the <strong>Club</strong>) so as to fully understand our <strong>Club</strong>’s capacity constraints and<br />

concerns before considering any changes to our current limit on Regular Shareholders. Further, before any material change to<br />

the Regular Shareholder limit is considered, the Board will communicate with, and seek the input of, CWC Members.<br />

These are very exciting times for the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong>. We have an outstanding <strong>Club</strong>, with exceptional facilities,<br />

outstanding and engaged Members and dedicated and professional Staff. It is a pleasure and an honor to serve as your<br />

President this year and I look forward to working closely with my fellow Board Members and the <strong>Club</strong>’s Management team to<br />

ensure that the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> continues to strive to provide an exceptional experience for its Members. On behalf of the<br />

Board of Directors and Members of the CWC, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Pasutto for his volunteer<br />

Spectacular is a word not to be used too often, but it is one<br />

which so aptly describes our end of September hiking trip to<br />

Eiffel Lake.<br />

The sky was overcast as we began our trek from Moraine<br />

Lake. We switch backed through mature sub-alpine forests.<br />

Quite quickly the sky cleared revealing the beauty of the<br />

glacier-clad Ten Peaks; majestic pewter mountains rising into<br />

a cerulean blue Alberta sky.<br />

Moving onto the open slopes the larch trees provided us with<br />

our fall display. Untouched by mountain breezes, the trees<br />

were at their absolute best and added a real profusion of gold<br />

to our scene. Eiffel Lake, nestled into its rocky shores, was<br />

our destination and our lunch stop. On our descent we were<br />

rewarded with glimpses of the brilliant turquoise water of<br />

Moraine Lake.<br />

What a day! What a hike! We left knowing that we had<br />

witnessed nature at its beautiful best, and just how fortunate<br />

we were to be part of it all!<br />

We had a fabulous season. Thank you to everyone that joined<br />

our hikes; we look forward to next spring. A special thank<br />

It is a cardio workout which helps the cardiovascular system<br />

perform well, which is essential for proper development of<br />

the uterus. It also helps maintain healthy weight essential<br />

for healthy pregnancy. Another swimming health benefit for<br />

pregnant women is that it increases the flexibility of their<br />

body and softens their body tissues as well. Swimming can<br />

also be relaxing and reduces your stress, which is essential<br />

during pregnancy.<br />

Health benefits of swimming during pregnancy<br />

Swimming helps regulate your breathing pattern and it also<br />

increases the oxygen flow towards your muscles. Further it<br />

helps improve the blood circulation. Swimming is also known<br />

to be good for those physically challenged. With swimming,<br />

health problems like leg pain and backache can be effectively<br />

cured. Another swimming health benefit is that it helps your<br />

strained spine become relaxed. A strained spine can lead to<br />

problems like headache and weakness.<br />

Swimming is known to cure problems<br />

like joint pain and high blood pressure.<br />

The Sea Lions have had a great fall! 61 of our swimmers participated in a team-building event at Camp<br />

Chief Hector. Even though swimmer’s knees were shaking on the high ropes, they had a great day! Parents<br />

joined their swimmers for a BBQ at the end where everyone enjoyed the beautiful evening in the mountains.<br />

A big thank-you goes to Claudia Flanagan for putting the fun day together and her crew of parents, who<br />

supervised buses, cooked burgers, chopped salad and served.<br />

We would like to send out another very sincere thank-you to all who participated and supported our fall fundraiser with Balzac<br />

meats. A special thanks goes to Claudia Flanagan and Teresa Gawalko for organizing the event and making sure that everyone<br />

had the right order to tuck into their freezer.<br />

A final thank-you goes to everyone involved in our annual hosted swim meet, the <strong>Winter</strong> Cup. It takes lots of volunteers to<br />

make the meet successful from <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> staff monitoring the parking to brothers and sisters running up results to the office.<br />

Our swim meet is highly regarded in the city and it is all the volunteers who make that happen. We extend our thanks to all club<br />

members for having patience with all the extra traffic from the swimmers and their parents from other clubs and the chaos it<br />

creates for the weekend.<br />

The swimmers are now starting their 25 m season and we wish them all the best in their various meets around town. Some of<br />

our swimmers will be heading to Victoria in December and we wish them all the best.<br />

After having a great Christmas and New Year, you will notice that our older swimmers will be spending part of their Christmas<br />

holidays in a training camp at the club. We applaud them for their perseverance!<br />

The Sea Lions wish to extend warm wishes to everyone during their holiday season.<br />

CHILDCARE FOCUS OF THE MONTH<br />

Thank you to all parents who have been diligent in keeping<br />

children who are under the weather at home. The staff and<br />

other parents appreciate this as it allows us to all stay<br />

healthier. The following are the guidelines of when children<br />

should stay home. As a courtesy to all other members and<br />

staff we ask everyone to follow these. If a child comes and<br />

our staff feel they are sick and should not be in childcare we<br />

will ask you to take them home, but we appreciate you<br />

making the call before it needs to come to this.<br />

Children should remain at home when:<br />

<strong>•</strong> They are too sick to go to school/day care<br />

<strong>•</strong> They have a fever<br />

<strong>•</strong> They have had 2 or more instances of diarrhea/vomiting<br />

in the past 24 hours.<br />

<strong>•</strong> They have an undiagnosed or contagious rash<br />

<strong>•</strong> They have any communicable disease (chicken pox, pink<br />

eye, etc.)<br />

<strong>•</strong> They require medication to relieve any cold or flu<br />

symptoms<br />

<strong>•</strong> They have been on antibiotics for less than 24 hours<br />

<strong>•</strong> They are unusually tired, pale and have a lack of appetite.<br />

PRESCHOOL CHRISTMAS CRAFTS<br />

saturday, December 15 th | 1:15 - 2:45 pm or 3:00 - 4:30 pm | upper classroom<br />

There will be several different Christmas crafts available and children can choose the crafts they would like to make.<br />

Children must be dropped off and picked up by a parent but you can come at any point during the class and they can<br />

stay as long as you wish to leave them.


MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS<br />

The <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is proud to once again be part of the<br />

Magic of Christmas, a registered non-profit organization that<br />

brings the joy of Christmas to people who otherwise may not<br />

be able to enjoy this joyous season. Starting at 6:00 am on<br />

Christmas Eve morning, volunteers go to homes in need of<br />

loving, caring and sharing. Many homes are visited: homes<br />

where finances are stretched to the limits, homes where<br />

violence or death make it hard to be joyous. They also visit<br />

nursing homes and hospitals as they share not only Christmas<br />

gifts but also Christmas joy.<br />

Each year we put a Magic of Christmas tree in the main<br />

hallway across from the Sports Office with tags all over it.<br />

Members and staff are invited to take a tag off the tree and<br />

buy a present for the person described on the tag. Then place<br />

the gift with the tag attached under the tree. Please do not<br />

wrap the present as they need to unwrap them to check the<br />

gifts before they can be delivered. The last day to drop off<br />

gifts is December 22 nd at Noon.<br />

PRESCHOOL - IMPORTANT CHANGES TO<br />

BEGINNING STEPS SEPTEMBER 2013<br />

Changes Effective September 2013<br />

Due to new licensing regulations, the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong><br />

will be requiring all children who are interested in Beginning<br />

Steps starting September 2013 to be three years of age before<br />

attending their first class. If an interested child is not three<br />

years old before the class is scheduled to begin, that parent<br />

will need to decide if they want to register and pay the<br />

monthly fee to hold the spot until their child is three years<br />

old, or choose to wait and take the chance a space will be<br />

available when their child turns three. We will also have one<br />

class which will start in January, but will register with the<br />

regular September - May Beginning Steps classes. Based<br />

on previous years, Beginning Steps registration tends to fill<br />

quickly which means there is no guarantee a spot will be<br />

available.<br />

PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION (BEGINNING STEPS &<br />

GAMES, GIGGLES AND GIANT STEPS)<br />

Registration for next year’s preschool will be on GameTime<br />

starting Tuesday, February 19th at 6:00 am for active<br />

members and Tuesday, February 26 th at 6:00 am for Select<br />

Wait List members. More details will follow in the January/<br />

February newsletter.<br />

The Preschool and Childcare<br />

staff would like to wish all<br />

members and their families<br />

a great Christmas!<br />

FOREVER FIT: MAkING FITNESS FUN!<br />

Is the colder weather getting you down? Are you sitting around during the day with nothing to do but watch TV? Have you<br />

thought about coming to the <strong>Club</strong> and taking a Forever Fit class? I often hear older adults say that it isn’t ‘fun’ to exercise or<br />

they’re too old to exercise. I strongly disagree! Fitness should be enjoyable and attainable – it shouldn’t be something you have<br />

to do but rather something you want to do!<br />

In our Forever Fit classes, we want to make fitness a part of your life. We welcome both beginners and experts alike and offer<br />

a variety of classes to accommodate your individual fitness needs. Come in, meet new friends and get fit while having FUN!<br />

intro to Gym Parkour<br />

November 3 rd | 1:00 - 2:00 pm | Cost: $15 per person<br />

All kids love to jump around. If your child wants an edgy<br />

alternative to structured gymnastics classes, this parkour<br />

workshop may be an excellent opportunity. Participants<br />

will discover how to move and have fun correctly in a safe<br />

environment. An introduction to basic movement patterns,<br />

landings, rolls, wall running and aerial tricks will be covered<br />

within this one hour workshop.<br />

55+ A Perfect balance: tea and information session<br />

November 8 th | 11:45 am - 12:15 pm | No Cost | 55+ Room<br />

Most people over 25 believe that they are too old to start<br />

gymnastics, but it is never too late to gain the benefits from<br />

practicing this sport. Ordinarily we take our balance for<br />

granted but it is an important and vital part of our daily life.<br />

Though there are often many factors involved with decreased<br />

balance as we age, a lot of this decline is simply due to our<br />

inactivity. Gymnastics is all about balance work, core and<br />

trunk strengthening and resistance training. Join us for an<br />

information session regarding the 55+ Gymnastics classes.<br />

Complimentary tea and coffee will be served.<br />

hard work. Come try something different!<br />

Music is such an important part of our lives and in childhood<br />

development. Studies have shown that children who learn<br />

music have a much easier time understanding math, language<br />

and everything needed to interact with our world and each<br />

other.<br />

For those who want to learn to play simply for the enjoyment<br />

of it or for those who wish to receive accreditation from<br />

the Royal Conservatory of Music, our qualified and talented<br />

instructors can offer instruction for beginner to advanced<br />

students.<br />

If you have not visited our 3 new Music Rooms, we are<br />

located east of the Climbing Centre. Instructors will work<br />

with each student and tailor the lessons to the student’s individual<br />

learning pace and to select appropriate core<br />

material.<br />

Soby’s Music is pleased to offer private music lessons for:<br />

Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Fiddle, Cello, Harmonica,<br />

Ukulele, Oboe, Flute, French horn, Music Theory, Harmony<br />

and History for all ages and levels of development and prep<br />

work for the RCM exam.<br />

All music teachers are highly qualified and educated. Our<br />

faculty is made up of professional teachers and performers,<br />

with real life musical experience to share with our students.<br />

SO WHAT IS PARkOUR?<br />

Parkour is the physical discipline of<br />

training to overcome any obstacle<br />

within one’s path by adapting one’s<br />

movements to the environment.<br />

Originally developed as a French military<br />

training program it is about moving<br />

efficiently and effectively and minimizing<br />

the energy you use. Typically practiced outside, within the<br />

urban landscapes of cities all over the world, gymnastics<br />

centres are ideal indoor training facilities for this discipline.<br />

Parkour movements typically include running, jumping,<br />

vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement.<br />

Movements from other physical disciplines are often<br />

incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not<br />

constitute parkour. Parkour training focuses on safety,<br />

longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It<br />

discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous<br />

stunts.<br />

Music lessons will run through to June, billed monthly. Note:<br />

Cancellations will only be accepted with 30 days notice.<br />

30 minute lessons – 4 x month - $120<br />

45 minute lessons – 4 x month - $180<br />

60 minute lessons – 4 x month - $240<br />

Child tax credit is available for parents with children enrolled<br />

in lessons. Members may also qualify for high school credits<br />

by competing RCM grades 8, 9, and 10.<br />

Private drop-in lessons are also available from 9:00 am to<br />

9:00 pm. Priority will be given to those in our yearly session,<br />

weekdays 4:00 - 8:00 pm and Saturdays.<br />

SkATER OF THE MONTH – SEPTEMBER<br />

Aisha Strange – Congratulations to Aisha for her exceptional<br />

work in the month of September. New skates proved to be<br />

a challenge for the first few days. Once she got “into” her<br />

boots, we added new freeskate music to her repertoire. She<br />

has been working hard on the early morning sessions, arriving<br />

on time for the first lesson at 6:30 am sharp! Aisha has<br />

been working with our new coaching team to hone her skills<br />

in freeskate and dance as well as adding a few new spins into<br />

her practice routine. This season finds Aisha out on the ice<br />

assisting the professional coaches as a Program Assistant. The<br />

little ones really look up to our PA’s, you are their role<br />

models! Thank you for all of your help in being such an<br />

inspiring leader in our skating section. Awesome work Aisha<br />

at putting your best skate forward to begin this season.<br />

NEW SkATING COMMITTEE<br />

As many of you may know, the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> has<br />

not only been going through a physical renovation but also<br />

a streamlining of all their committees. As a result, there will<br />

now be a Skating Committee that will oversee all the<br />

activities on the rink: figure skating, hockey and recreational<br />

skate. Our current parent committee is one that was struck<br />

many years ago to address the requirements of Skate Canada<br />

(for figure skating). This committee will continue to exist<br />

but will be solely for the organization of all things to do with<br />

Figure Skating and it will then report to the newly formed<br />

Skating Committee!<br />

The new committee will have specific goals and objectives<br />

for which it will be accountable to the Activity Council, <strong>Club</strong><br />

Management and ultimately, the Board of Directors. This<br />

committee will include the COO, Jan Bloemraad, Skating<br />

Manager, Tina-Marie Yenna, Hockey Head Professional,<br />

Thomas Labelle as ex-officio and non-voting members. The<br />

committee will then also include the Chair of the Skate<br />

Canada Executive Committee and two to four other <strong>Club</strong><br />

members who would be interested in assisting with making<br />

sure the <strong>Club</strong> ice has activities for everyone. This will include<br />

suggestions for hockey and recreational skates, how to<br />

improve member usage, as well as some input on<br />

programming, Master ice schedule and rink and equipment<br />

improvements. The committee will be chaired by a member<br />

but the Skating Manager will have ultimate responsibility and<br />

authority. The plan is to meet a minimum of 2 times per year<br />

with each member having a one year term from July 1 st to<br />

June 30 th .<br />

The committee is now looking for members to fill those other<br />

spots. If you or someone you know is interested in bringing<br />

creative and constructive energy to the committee, please<br />

have them contact either Thomas Labelle at<br />

thomasl@calgarywinterclub.com or Susan Bennett at<br />

susan.bennett@pointgeomatics.ca.<br />

The first meeting will be sometime at the end of November.<br />

SUSIE MAkES TEAM CANADA!<br />

<strong>Club</strong> pro Susie King travelled to the National Squash Centre<br />

in Toronto in September for the Canadian Women’s team’s<br />

trial event. With one spot automatically awarded to the team,<br />

the event was for the next top eight women in the country to<br />

fight for the remaining three spots. Susie’s training and hard<br />

work over the summer months paid off as she beat the<br />

Canadian number 13, then players with world rankings of<br />

110, 96 and 70. Her results meant that she won the whole<br />

event meaning she will be placed number 2 on the team who<br />

will be travelling to Nimes, France in November for the<br />

women’s world team championships. I am sure you will join<br />

me in congratulating Susie on making the team and wish her<br />

and Team Canada every success at the world’s.<br />

TENNIS TIPS<br />

Playing singles Against a Defender<br />

A defender is a player who runs everything<br />

down and gets everything back in the court,<br />

and I am sure we have all experienced the<br />

frustration of playing against this type of<br />

player. Here are a couple tips to get you ready<br />

for the TIEBREAKER TOURNAMENT.<br />

Tip #1<br />

The best tactic to play against a consistent player is to be<br />

super patient. Defenders can’t blast you off the court, they<br />

rely on your unforced errors to win points. However you can’t<br />

try to out rally them either. Thats their game and they will win<br />

every time if you play their game.<br />

When you are playing points against a defender you need to<br />

focus on having longer rallies than normal. Defenders tend to<br />

hit balls short in the court which gives you an opportunity to<br />

pressure them. So it is important to wait for the perfect time<br />

to use your big forehand or attack the net. If you are patient<br />

you will get tons of chances.<br />

Tip #2<br />

A defenders weapon is their ability to move on the court.<br />

More aggressive players need to take a page out of a<br />

defenders book to beat them. If you focus on keeping your<br />

feet moving constantly during a rally and getting set-up early<br />

for your shot, you will be more consistent.<br />

Another tip to help with consistency, is to aim into big targets.<br />

Try hitting down-the-middle, this will lengthen the number of<br />

shots in a rally and you might just receive some good<br />

opportunities.<br />

For the past 2 years I have had the opportunity to be the Sport<br />

Physiotherapist for the Canadian Womens Goalball Team,<br />

a Paralympic sport for visually impaired and blind athletes.<br />

The team has spent the last year in vigorous preparation for<br />

the big event in London this summer, traveling every month<br />

around the world for training camps and tournaments and<br />

I have been able to be with them for all of the incredible<br />

experiences. Before describing the fantastic experience of the<br />

Paralympics, I would like to say a big thanks to all of my regular<br />

clients at the Physio Clinic who were so understanding<br />

of my absences, to the <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> for their support, to the<br />

Wellness staff and Physios who helped manage my caseload<br />

and to my partners Lois and Jeff for picking up my end of the<br />

responsibilities in the clinic. I appreciate all of your support!<br />

lONDON 2012<br />

The Women’s Goalball team left Canada on August 15 th for<br />

Bedford, England. Early arrival to the region of the Games<br />

is normal for most teams to allow the athletes to acclimatize<br />

to the time zone and complete final preparations for a major<br />

tournament. Bedford was well prepared for us as they hosted<br />

many teams for staging camps prior to both the Olympics and<br />

Paralympics. While in Bedford, we met many of the teams<br />

from North Africa who were on their way to the<br />

Paralympics. Focus on preparation rather than socializing<br />

was the key however, with days consisting of training, meals,<br />

Physio treatment, and sleeping.<br />

August 25 th saw us on a bus to London and the Olympic<br />

Village. The excitement of finally heading to the Games after<br />

a big year of preparation was in the air! We all felt the same<br />

little flutters in our stomach with our first glimpse of the<br />

Olympic Park and Village. The Paralympics are held in the<br />

same venues in the Olympic Park and the athletes housed in<br />

the same Village (now called the Paralympic Village) as during<br />

the Olympics. The housing facilities had undergone some<br />

changes to allow for better access for Paralympic athletes,<br />

but the competition sites remained unchanged, as they were<br />

built for both Games. An interesting fact is that some of the<br />

competition venues will be dismantled after the Games and<br />

shipped to Brazil to be used in the 2016 Rio Games. The<br />

whole Olympic site was built in an area of London called<br />

East Docklands. All of the development associated with the<br />

Games, including new housing, malls and shops, restaurants<br />

and the sport facilities will help to revitalize this area and<br />

provide a legacy for the city of London.<br />

LONDON 2012: THE PARALYMPIC ExPERIENCE<br />

By Jackie St. George-Rennie<br />

On arrival, we then were able to experience what the team<br />

called early Christmas! Waiting for each of us on our beds<br />

was a suitcase filled with our Canadian Paralympic Team<br />

clothing. The theme for this year’s clothing was casual, with<br />

t- shirts, chino type pants and even a jean jacket! Once<br />

wearing our clothing there was no mistaking what country<br />

we were from. A big CANADA was proudly displayed on<br />

everything! And proud we were to be representing Canada at<br />

the 2012 Paralympic Games.<br />

Once we arrived to the Paralympic Village, I now had 2 roles.<br />

One as the team Physio for the Women’s Goalball team and<br />

another as part of the Canadian Medical team. Most of the<br />

sports representing Canada brought their dedicated therapists<br />

with them and together with a few core staff we made up the<br />

Canadian Medical Team. This consisted of Doctors, Sport<br />

Physios and Athletic Therapists and we operated out of a<br />

medical clinic setting within the Canadian housing area in<br />

the Paralympic Village. Most of my time was still spent with<br />

my own Goalball team but we now also had the support of<br />

other Canadian medical staff if needed. The host organization<br />

in London also provided a more comprehensive clinic where<br />

we could access the latest of imaging technology, braces,<br />

orthotics and support medical services. Our days again took<br />

on the routine: breakfast, training, therapy, lunch, light training,<br />

dinner, more therapy if needed and sleep. It may sound<br />

routine, but it certainly wasn’t boring, as the excitement of<br />

competition was drawing near! As part of the whole Canadian<br />

Team we also took part in pep rallies, the Team Welcoming<br />

Ceremony (where the Canadian flag was proudly raised in the<br />

Paralympic Village) and of course the Opening Ceremonies!<br />

It was an amazing experience that none of us will forget as<br />

we followed our flag bearer (wheelchair rugby player, Garret<br />

Hickling) into the Olympic Stadium representing our country.<br />

Thousands of people packed the stands to welcome us and<br />

cheer for us. For me, this experience is always one of the<br />

highlights of representing Canada in a Games situation.<br />

The Goalball team started competition on September 1 st and<br />

the days took on more intensity. The focus was to be the best<br />

we could and the team played well through our round robin,<br />

finishing 1st in our pool after 4 games. However, as sport<br />

will have it, we had a heartbreaking loss to Finland in sudden<br />

death overtime during quarterfinals which put us out of the<br />

medal round. It’s hard to put into words how lost we all felt<br />

once we were out of competition. Our focus was gone, but the


excitement of the Games was still going on around us and as we started to recover we started to really notice the rest of the<br />

Games! What incredible athletes there were from all over the world! Blind runners courageously sprinting the 100 meters while<br />

lightly tethered to a guide, bilateral amputees bounding on their blades, quadriplegic wheelchair rugby players taking huge<br />

spills in their chairs when colliding with other players, wheelchair basketball players deftly dribbling the ball, swimmers<br />

without arms or a leg racing faster than most of us can swim with all our limbs intact. Athletes that not only deal with a<br />

disability in daily life, but who also train as elite athletes. Dedicated individuals, all proudly representing their countries. And<br />

the volunteers (fondly called the Games Makers), who always had a smile and were ready to help. The Games really couldn’t<br />

have functioned without all of these fantastic individuals. The wonderful competition venues, FOr from All YOu the Copper r cAter Box i NG where N eeDs<br />

we played to the beautiful Olympic Stadium and the comfortable apartments in the Village. London really was one of the best<br />

Games that I have had the privilege to be at. It is great to be back to real life but maybe by the time Rio comes around in 2016<br />

I’ll be ready to do it all over again!<br />

Colin Hyland | Fitness Manager<br />

The <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is very happy to Have Colin Hyland on board as the<br />

New Fitness Manager. Colin comes to the <strong>Club</strong> previously from the Talisman<br />

Centre where he was in charge of Group Fitness for the past six years, he<br />

was an instructor, organized and scheduled all of the programs and was in<br />

charge of the overall success of the program. Originally from Bow Island<br />

Alberta, Colin moved to <strong>Calgary</strong> in 1998 to enroll at the University of <strong>Calgary</strong><br />

in Kinesiology. Throughout his college Career, Colin was an avid swimmer<br />

and was very interested in high performance and the interest of competing.<br />

Colin graduated University in 2003 and has never looked back.<br />

Colin moved to the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> this past August, and members have<br />

already started to see a positive movement in the Fitness Centre. Colin is<br />

very excited about the Expansion and is looking forward to bringing a new<br />

form of Fitness to the <strong>Club</strong>. “I want to help better people’s lives through<br />

Fitness and an active lifestyle,” states Colin. Colin believes that Fitness is<br />

supposed to be fun and that anyone can do it.<br />

Since joining the team Colin has been working very hard to think of new<br />

ideas and concepts that members can really look forward to. Colin will<br />

be introducing new personal training initiatives, introductory classes, high<br />

performance programs and incorporating a more open and warm feeling<br />

to the Fitness Centre. Colin wants all <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> members to feel<br />

welcome in the Fitness Centre and that any staff member can be approached<br />

and informative.<br />

Most members that have already met Colin would say that he is very open<br />

and approachable, but if you are looking for something to break the ice, ask<br />

Colin about his experience when he was struck by lightning. It is a story that<br />

will keep you glued to your seat.<br />

All members can look forward to the direction of the CWC’s Fitness Centre<br />

with Colin leading the Charge. Welcome to the team Colin, Keep up the<br />

great work.<br />
