Greetings West Palm Beach!

Winter is such a fantastic time of year in West Palm Beach. Balmy temperatures,

ocean breezes, clear, cloudless sunny days – we are the envy of our neighbors

to the north. And what a great time to come outside and enjoy our parks and

recreation facilities!

As we gear up for our winter sports and recreation activities, consider enrolling

in a program for yourself or your children. The key to living a good, long life

is doing it in a healthy way. What better way than to instill the discipline of

exercise and spending time in the great outdoors with our children. Enough

Wii and X-box 360 – shut off the TV and go for a walk in the park!

Thumb through the pages of our brochure and find a class or sports activity that interests you. Want to

teach your children the fundamentals of sports – we’re starting a new Flag Football program in January.

How about an exercise class for the adults in the family Try Zumba at South Olive or Howard Park or

Line Dancing at Gaines Park. Want an outdoor challenge Sign up for a boot camp at one of our parks.

Professional instructors sure put you through a workout!

Did you know all of our community centers have rooms for rent for private functions You should stop by

the Mary V. McDonald-Wilson Center at Gaines Park – we can host as many as 240 people for a sit-down

dinner or as few as you want to invite to a baby shower!

Looking for some fun free activities Our Party for the People happens every Thursday night on Clematis

St. And we’ll be moving our Sunday on the Waterfront monthly concert series back to the Great Lawn

this winter. Join us the third Sunday of the month for great live music! Check out all of our waterfront

happenings by going to www.wpb.org/waterfront. And be sure to stop by the Lake Pavilion to see if it

might suit your next party or get together. We’ve lowered the rates for this beautiful location.

Perhaps you just want to sit back and enjoy the peace and solitude of our open spaces. We have swings

and benches along the waterfront and wonderful picnic pavilions at many of our parks. Relax and enjoy

our beautiful city. As you plan your activities or just want to spend time in West Palm’s great outdoors,

remember…It Starts In Parks!

Sincerely,

Mayor Jeri Muoio

This 24-hour a day, seven day a week hotline is available for all your

non-emergency needs and concerns. City of West Palm Beach workers

With this one, convenient number, there’s no more wondering who to

Introducing the

City of West Palm Beach’s

Online Registration System

http://wpb.org/park/program-registration/

Online Registration

The City of West Palm Beach Parks and Recreation

Department is pleased to introduce Online Registration.

This system will enable you to register your household

members (family) and yourself online for many programs

and activities offered by the department. While the

number of programs available for online registration is

limited during the initial launch, look for more activities

to be added online in the coming months.

What Can I Do

• Browse activity and pass membership listings

• Search for activities by type, age range, location,

and other criteria

• Look up details about any activity, (e.g. prices,

dates, times, locations, or even current

enrollment numbers)

In addition, registered individuals

and households can:

• Enroll for many of our classes, activities, and

pass memberships

• Check on class availability

• Renew memberships

• Print a transaction history

• Reprint old receipts

Using the Online Registration System

If you only wish to view program activities, you may

browse activities as a Guest. However, to enroll in

programs and pay online, you must register for an

online account and receive a User Name and Password.

To apply for an account:

If you have previously enrolled in City of West Palm

Beach Parks and Recreation classes, call (561) 804-4900

to establish your online account.

If you are a new customer who has not previously

enrolled in classes take your State of Florida

identification card or driver’s license to one of our

community centers to establish your online account.

After applying, you will receive your User Name and

Password in no more than five working days. Once you

receive your User Name and Password, you may LOGIN.

However, the Online Registration

system DOES NOT allow you to:

• Register individuals from other households

• Register children who do not meet the specific

requirements for a class

• Refund a class

• Transfer to another class

• Please note that not all classes, activities, and

passes are available for online registration

To print receipts, you must have

Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

The only accepted form of online payment is by

credit card (Visa or MasterCard only).

Learn to Swim Classes

The best thing anyone can do to stay safe in and around

the water is to learn to swim. Drowning remains the second

leading cause of injury-related death for children ages one to

12 years.

The City of West Palm Beach has proudly partnered with the

Palm Beach County Drowning Prevention Coalition in an effort

to educate about water safety, prevent drowning and provide

swim lessons free of charge to qualified candidates in the form

of a voucher called “Drowning Prevention Bucks.” To see if

you qualify for Drowning Prevention Coalition Bucks, please

call (561) 616-7068.

Parent and Child Learn to Swim Program:

The seahorse parent nurtures and watches over it’s child until

they are ready to swim independently. This course will do the

same. Our instructors will teach parents the skills to use play as

a form of learning to provide a fun environment in the water.

Hands on parental involvement is instrumental in the learning

process to reinforce your child’s development of water skills. A

child that is three years of age may move into the preschool

courses after demonstrating skill proficiency.

Seahorse 1 (Parent and Child - Level 1)

Six months through approximately 3 years old that have no

water experience of one previous session of a water adjustment

session.

Seahorse 2 (Parent and Child - Level 2)

Six months through approximately 3 years who have completed

Level 1 or who can demonstrate the completion requirements

for Level 1.

32 www.westpalmplays.com


The Preschool Learn to Swim Program:

The preschool learn to swim program is designed for children

4 - 5 years of age. Children three years old are welcome to

participate after a brief assessment from facility staff. All learn

to swim skills include water safety topics to help participants

be safe in and around the water. If you are unsure which

course is appropriate for your child’s current ability, please call

the facility and we will schedule a free assessment to place

them in the correct level. To ensure proper placement of your

child, on-line registration is not available for learn to swim.

Starfish (Preschool - Level 1)

Although many starfish start off slow in the water, by the end

of the course they will shine. Among the skills taught are:

water entry and exiting, submerging mouth, nose and eyes,

and gliding on the front and back.

Clown Fish (Preschool - Level 3)

Just like clownfish know basic swimming skills, they still like

to stay close to home. This course is for children that have

big blue water. Among the skills taught are: floating, opening

eyes under water and retrieving an object, treading water and

combining arm and leg actions.

Tadpoles (Preschool - Level 2)

Tadpoles learn the fundamentals of swimming on their way

to earning their swimming legs and arms. Among the skills

taught are: bobbing, demonstrating front and back glides

independently for 15 seconds, changing direction while

swimming, and demonstrating all the skills from the previous

levels without assistance.

of age. Four and five year olds may be enrolled if they have

the participants must successfully complete the previous level

or be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements.

Please remember that unless a child is practicing skills learned

in a class they may lose their proficiency to demonstrate

required skills. Please do not place your child in a higher level

course unless they have been practicing the required skills. If

you are unsure of the proper level, please contact us for a free

assessment of your child’s skills. To ensure proper placement
