Message from the President

Dear Park District Residents:

A new, inclusive approach to park improvement

that was initiated in 2012 will result in a new

playground in Glen Ellyn Manor Park this year.

The Park District reached out to neighbors via

a survey, focus group, and several meetings to

gather input that proved invaluable. We gained

better insight into attitudes, interests, wants and

needs. As a result, the Park District will have

a neighborhood park that better represents

and serves our district and particularly the

surrounding neighborhood that the playground

serves. The final design has been completed

and includes a new playground for preschoolers

and older children, restored natural areas, a

new path system. We've worked with the Village

and plan to remove an unused cul-de-sac to increase green space in the park. The next phase is working with the

Village to secure permits, seeking bids for construction, and finally, construction itself.

In an effort to increase safety and security at the Spring Avenue Dog Park, the park was fully enclosed last year and

now there is a new swipe card entry system. All dog park members have a swipe card that is now required to enter the

dog park. In addition, the system will increase the park district's ability to better monitor visitations.

While you’re out in the parks, try the new boardwalk in Churchill Park which creates a complete trail loop within the

park or the brand new trail within Ackerman Woods. The Ackerman trail is a quarter-mile loop connecting Lenox Road

and Ackerman Park. Our recent Community Attitude and Interest Survey results show that 67% of respondents want

new walking trails and connections to existing to trails, so we encourage you to check them out.

And finally, we are stepping out of the board room and into the parks to meet our neighbors this summer! The

Park District will begin a series of Commissioners’ Neighborhood Meet & Greet Picnics in three locations. It’s a new

approach we hope will encourage everyone living near these parks to come out and meet their commissioners, learn

more about the Community Attitude and Interest Survey, Lake Ellyn Park Master Plan and other relevant news. We’ll

bring the Block Party Wagon and offer free food on a first come, first served basis. Please see page 17 for details. We

hope to see you there.

See you in the parks,

Melissa Creech

President, Board of Commissioners

Our Mission

The Glen Ellyn Park District is driven to foster diverse, community-based leisure opportunities, through a harmonious

blend of quality recreation programs, facilities and open space which will enhance the quality of life into the future.

Learn to Swim Program

The Glen Ellyn Park District’s Learn

to Swim program provides a positive,

fun-filled opportunity for children

and adults to learn skills that will help

reduce the number of water accidents

and provide lifelong aquatic enjoyment.

All instructors will be trained and

certified by Jeff Ellis and Associates,

International Aquatics Corporation.

This program is objective driven, rather

than progressive. Each day there is an

objective to meet, using the strengths

of the child to do so. Register for as

many classes or sessions as you wish.

Please see registration instructions in

the back of the brochure. Swimming

lessons are not made up, nor are

refunds provided due to missed

student lessons for inclement weather

or absence. There are no class

cancellations.

Journey I: Pre-Beginner • Age: 3-5

This will be your child’s first swim

lesson experience. Emphasis will be on

group games to acclimate preschoolers

to water thus reducing their fears.

Children are grouped by ability and

work on a variety of skills. This class

follows the same lesson plans as

the Beginner class, but for younger

children.

Journey I: Beginner • Age: 5 & Up

There are three levels in Journey I

Beginner. All children will be tested and

grouped with others of comparable

skills. This class is equivalent to Red

Cross Levels I and II.

In Level A of this Journey, children learn

to hold their breath, open their eyes

underwater, breathe out of their mouth

and nose, and learn water safety. It is

not uncommon for a child to spend

more than one term in this level.

In Level B of this Journey, children

will be introduced to the jelly float,

stomach float, back float and back

glide.

In Level C of this Journey, children

will learn to combine movement with

the glide strokes as well as changing

direction. Many children will need to

repeat this Journey to get through all

the skill levels. This should be expected,

and needs to be considered by those

registering for multiple sessions.

Journey II • Age: 6 & Up

Children must have completed Journey

I or its equivalent. There are several

adventures in this Journey designed

to teach swimmers the front crawl

and backstroke. Swimmers will also be

introduced to the breast stroke. Proper

breathing will be emphasized. Students

will progress at their own speed in this

Journey. Successful completion will

allow for advancement to Journey III.

Journey III • Age: 6 & Up

Children must have completed

Journey II or its equivalent. Journey

III will utilize adventures designed to

introduce swimmers to the elementary

backstroke, butterfly and sidestroke.

Emphasis will be on the coordination

of kicking and pulling movements

associated with each stroke.

Private Swim Lessons

Enjoy individualized swim lessons

designed to develop confidence,

improve stroke mechanics and safety.

Half-hour lessons are available during

open swim. If you are not a pass

holder, you must pay the daily fee

upon entering the pool for lessons. The

instructor will be chosen depending on

needs. To set up your private lesson,

you must talk to the pool manager.

The Glen Ellyn Park District Gators Swim Team is made up of boys and girls from 7-18

years who compete in the West Suburban Swim Conference throughout the summer.

This program is lotteried due to its popularity and limited space capacity. Returning

Gators will have first priority in the lottery, however no spots are guaranteed. The

Gators compete at both “A” (more competitive) and “B” (less experienced) meets. Some

swimmers may not be able to compete at every meet due to very large numbers in

some age groups and levels. Meets are held both at home and away on Tuesday and

Thursday evenings and two or three Saturday mornings. Swim Team is not a lesson

program. Participants learn the techniques and discipline of competitive swimming while learning the value of sportsmanship

and team spirit. Participants 7 and 8 years old must be able to comfortably swim one pool length of freestyle and one pool length

of backstroke. Participants over 9 years old must be able to swim two lengths of the pool freestyle and backstroke. Swimmers

are expected to attend practices on a daily basis. A Swim Team Parent Manual, which further details the program, is available

at the Main Street Recreation Center and Spring Avenue Recreation Center offices after May 1st. The swim team fee includes

paid coaches, team apparel and league fees. A team suit will need to be purchased through our local supplier. Every swim meet

requires a great number of volunteers. Parents are required to work a minimum of two home and away meets. Scheduling will

be arranged during the first two weeks of the program. According to Conference rules, a swimmer’s age shall be determined by

his/her age as of June 1 of the current year. Would you like to become part of the Gator Parent Volunteer Committee? Contact

Kathleen Esposito at 630-942-7261. [KE]

engineering and imagination. Join the

thousands who gather to witness this

summertime spectacle, as crews set

sail in full regalia, commanding vessels

that rival the wonders of Willy Wonka’s

Chocolate Factory.

A special addition to this year’s regatta

is paddle boards! At the helm is Master

of Ceremonies, Captain Ed Klemm,

Wheaton North High School’s own state

and national speech coach champ! It’s

Junior Tennis Lessons

JUNIOR TENNIS

20

All ages and ability levels are welcome.

The tennis staff will ensure that your

child is placed in the appropriate group

based on their skill level. Lessons will

focus on technical dynamics, physical

fitness, strategy and match play. We

ask that you have your child bring a

water bottle to each lesson. Most of

all, we want the juniors to have fun

and learn the best sport of a lifetime.

The minimum for each class to run

is four. All participants are taught by

HealthTrack tennis staff Monday-

Thursday with Friday as a rain make-up

day. In the event of rain, please call

the Tennis Hotline 630-942-7263. Our

primary site for tennis classes will be

at Memorial Park (Glenbard West High

School Tennis Courts). Additionally we

will be offering tennis classes at Sunset

Park. [BB]

USTA QuickStart

Age: 4-6

This is a specialized class developed by

the USTA that emulates some highly

successful foreign junior development

training procedures. Juniors start out

on a modified tennis court with a fourtiered

tennis ball arrangement. Early

success at being able to rally a tennis

ball is the key to this class.

R/NR Fee: $70/$100 or $90/$120 (Cost

if participant wants racquet included)

Smashers

Age: 5-7

This is a fun introduction to tennis.

It is intended to create a love of the

game. Basic strokes and hand-eye

coordination are emphasized. This class

uses the full length of the tennis court.

R/NR Fee: $70/$100 or $90/$120 (Cost

if participant wants racquet included)

Free Clay Court

Tennis Lessons

(see back cover for details)

All-Stars

Age: 6-8

The love of the game is taken to the

next step. Fun and games further

develop the ground strokes and

hand-eye coordination. This class also

introduces the serve and the volley as

well as putting more focus on proper

footwork.

R/NR Fee: $70/$100 or $90/$120 (Cost

if participant wants racquet included)

Challengers

Age: 9-13

All players at this level need to be

intermediates or higher. Half the class

time will be devoted to instruction

and developmental drills. The other

half will focus on actual match play or

competitive match play drills.

R/NR Fee: $100/$130

Futures A&B

Age: 9-13

This class operates with two levels-ofplay

in mind. First (A), are the beginners

and advanced beginners who will

be placed together for fast-tracked

instructional work. Second (B), are

the intermediate students who have

developed into players that are able to

rally a tennis ball on a regular basis. This

player can now get a high percentage

of their shots in the court, as well as

get most serves in. Desire to compete

against others should be taking hold.

R/NR Fee: $100/$130

Teen Beginners

Age: 13+

This class is for the teen aged child

who is a beginner. The major emphasis

of this class will be learning all the

basics including, grips, groundstroke

fundamentals, volley and overhead

technique, serving and footwork. Our

goal is to try to fast-track players to

the next level. This next level includes

trying out for the High School team.

R/NR Fee: $70/$100

High School JV2

Age: 14+

This class is for the teenaged child

who is an advanced beginner or a little

better. The major emphasis of this class

will be learning improving the aspects

of your game that allow you try out for

your High School tennis team. In High

School tennis 8 of 11 playing spots are

doubles. Because of this, we focus

much of our attention on doubles play

and strategy for doubles at this level.

We also encourage more singles match

play in the class. This gives us the

opportunity to work on what errors we

see under the pressure of match play.

R/NR Fee: $100/$130

before) we add a $10 surcharge per person for anyone signing up the day the class begins. Please help us by registering early.

many of the drills.

2013-2014 Preschool Year

The Glen Ellyn Park District Preschool program is sure to keep

active children busy! The Park District Preschool provides

a stimulating environment which enhances socialization,

cooperative play and fun-filled learning. We are a play-based

program that is focused on the idea that children learn the

most from the most creative lessons. Games, crafts, songs

and stories are all age appropriate and easy to enjoy. The

five levels offered by the Glen Ellyn Park District incorporate

science, language and motor development in a recreational

setting. For questions or concerns, please contact Jeannie

Robinson, Recreation Supervisor at jrobinson@gepark.org.

Preschool begins the week of September 3 & 4, 2013 and

concludes the week of May 9, 2014. Classes will not meet on

legal public holidays as determined by the District 41 school

calendar. There may be additional dates which will be stated

in your Glen Ellyn Park District Preschool Calendar.

Program Philosophy

The Glen Ellen Park District provides a variety of experiences

and media to facilitate learning concepts of vocabulary,

numbers, shape, form and other cognitive abilities through a

play-based atmosphere where children explore and develop.

Play serves many developmental purposes. As an activity

of intense concentration and involvement, play is a time

for problem-solving, sorting out and organizing new ideas,

developing an understanding of others and one’s own ability

to relate to them, and investigating and experimenting with

new possibilities.

The daily schedule is a mixture of teacher-directed, childdirected,

small and large group activities based around a

weekly theme. Children are involved with block building, art

materials, music, books, dramatic playing, cooking and more.

Children also have monthly visits from the Glen Ellyn Public

Library, B#arp Music for Children and Nature Programs by the

GEPD Naturalist.

Phillies Travel Softball

Phillies youth travel softball is a Glen

Ellyn Park District program run with

the assistance of the Glen Ellyn Girls

Softball Association.

The program is for female athletes

who would like to make a larger

commitment to fast pitch softball and

play at a higher level of competition.

It starts as young as the 10U level and

continues through the 18U level. It

gives the athletes a chance to play 50

house league program and then play a

shortened travel schedule of about 20

games beginning at the end of June

through July. They will play in games

and tournaments appropriated to their

skill level.

The Phillies Fastpitch Softball program

teaches participants the proper rules

of the game and prepares athletes for

future endeavors. Tryouts are held in

the primary focus in organizing teams

will be on skill level, with the goal being

Travel Soccer

Travel Soccer 2013-2014 Season

Youth Travel Soccer is a Glen Ellyn Park District program run

with the assistance of Glen Ellyn Lakers Futbol Club. Teams

are organized through the NISL and IWSL and range from U8-

U18. New volunteers are always welcome. Lakers meetings

are held on the second Monday of each month at Spring

Avenue Recreation Center at 7pm.

Who should play travel team soccer?

Travel team soccer is for players who enjoy playing soccer

and have the desire and dedication to play at a more

competitive level. Players receive extensive training twice a

week in the evening with professional trainers and coaches

certified by the Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) who

are committed to developing skilled players.

Time Commitments and Expectations

Travel soccer demands a fairly large time commitment since

our soccer year extends from August to June. The year

program begins in August with a one-week training camp for

all teams. Then each week during the fall and spring league

season, the teams train twice a week for 90 minutes each

time.

During the winter season, the teams have training sessions

once a week for a ten-week period and may also participate

in indoor soccer leagues in preparation for the spring season.

Fall and spring games are usually scheduled on Sundays.

Teams play a ten-game schedule each fall and 8 games each

spring with half on the home fields and the remainder away.

We expect players to have fun. We expect players to be at

all training sessions and games. We expect them to respect

coaches, trainers, fellow team players, parents, equipment,

facilities, game officials, and game opponents at all times. We

expect the players to come to all events with the necessary

equipment, their team commitment, and ready to play.

For more information about the club, visit www.gelakers.com

or call Brenden Berry at 630-942-7288.

Program Fees (fees are subject to change prior to tryouts)

Tryouts

Anyone wishing to play on a Lakers Travel team must try out.

This includes any player currently on an existing Travel team.

Tryouts enable players to be organized into teams by age

and similar skill level. This allows training and competition to

occur on an equal basis which creates an environment where

players can be challenged and learn more effectively.

Tryouts are a two-day process. All players must attend both

days of tryouts to be eligible to make a team. All tryouts will

be held at Ackerman Park and conducted by Future Pros

trainers. Please contact a member of the Lakers committee if

there is a conflict. All players must pre-register for tryouts on

the Lakers website.

Tryout Dates

U8-U14 Co-Rec: May 13, 16 and 18

U8-U14 Girls: May 29, 30, June 1

Please check Lakers website for specific days/times for each

age group.

Glen Ellyn Lakers Academy

Lakers Academy is a program for 5-7 year old boys

and girls who love soccer, but are not sure about the

commitment of travel soccer. In the Lakers Academy,

your child will be coached by the same professional

coaches as the rest of the Lakers players, and train

in the same manner as Lakers players. But instead of

playing games in our travel leagues, your child will

play internal games and scrimmages in a “microleague”

format. The Lakers Academy is a great way

to get a taste for travel soccer without the yearlong

commitment. Concurrent participation in both

the Glen Ellyn House League and Lakers Academy

is encouraged. For more information visit: www.

gelakers.com/lakers-academy.aspx.

Registration for the following programs was

held during the winter:

• Youth Baseball

• Girls Softball

• Spring House Soccer

General Information

Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits

discrimination on the basis of a disability. The Glen Ellyn Park

District will make reasonable accommodations in recreation

programs to enable participation by an individual with a

disability that meets essential eligibility requirements for that

leisure program and facility. If you have questions or believe

you have been unfairly discriminated against by the park

district, please contact Nick Cinquegrani, Superintendent of

Finance and Personnel at 630-942-7257. Those who use the

Telecommunications Device for the Deaf may reach the park

district by calling the Illinois Relay Line at 800-526-0844.

Behavior Policy

Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at

all times. The following guidelines have been developed to

help make park district programs safe and enjoyable for all

participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular

programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff.

Participants shall:

1. Show respect to all participants and staff, take direction

from staff.

2. Refrain from using abusive or foul language.

3. Refrain from causing bodily harm to self, other

participants or staff.

4. Show respect for equipment, supplies and facilities.

A positive approach will be used regarding discipline. Staff will

will be sought specific to each individual situation. The park

district reserves the right to dismiss a participant whose

behavior endangers the safety of himself /herself or others.

Insurance

The Glen Ellyn Park District does not provide medical

insurance coverage for individuals who participate in our

programs or use our facilities. To do so would make programs

and user fees cost-prohibitive.

Non-Resident Policy & Membership

Glen Ellyn Park District residents, through property taxes,

make a financial contribution to the Park District operations.

residents to compensate for property tax disparity.

Ellyn Park District or any other park district may receive all

the privileges of belonging to the Glen Ellyn Park District by

paying the equivalent of Park District taxes annually. This

membership allows for priority registration, pool passes, and
