Memorable Moments

Brett Schille

Calgary Winter Club junior squash athlete Brett Schille

placed second in the under 15 division at the 2012

Canadian Junior Open held at the White Oaks Fitness

& Racquet Club in Niagara on the Lake. Brett excelled

through a very tough field before a hard fought final.

Great Job Brett!

Joanne Godziuk

c a l g a r y w i n t e r c l u b . c o m | J a n u a r y. F e b r u a r y 2 0 1 3

After her triathlon in June of 2012 and because of a recent knee

injury, Joanne was not able to run long distances that kept her

living an active lifestyle. At this point Joanne decided to speak

with Yvette Styner about training and competing in a Figure

Competition. On September 30th Joanne competed in the NPAA

(Natural Physique and Athletics Association) Figure Competition

and placed 4th in the Novice category and 6th in the Masters

Category. Joanne enjoyed the process and the reward of training.

The first competition was a success and she will continue to work

hard for her next competition in May.

Yvette Styner

Yvette has been training and competing for only a few months

longer than Joanne, but the drive and determination is still

the same. Yvette loves competing to show herself the results of

all of her hard work. Yvette competed in her first competition

in May of 2012 and she placed 2nd in the Masters Category and

5th in Novice. This early success drove Yvette to continue. In her

next completion, Yvette placed 3rd in the Open Figure category

and 2nd in the Masters. The best part for Yvette is the training

and the process, Yvette loves to push herself.

Fellow Club Members,

P r e s i d e n t ’ s M e s s a g e

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

I hope that you enjoyed a safe and enjoyable holiday season. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Calgary Winter Club, I

extend our best wishes to you and your family and friends for a healthy, happy and prosperous 2013.

I am pleased to report that Club activity and operating results have remained strong as we reach the mid-point of our fiscal year.

Our recently completed expansion has had a positive impact on member usage of the Club as well as new member sales

activity. As such, your Club continues to be well positioned for the future. As reported in my previous message to Club

Members, the Board of Directors has directed Management to hold the line on our established Regular Active Shareholder

limit, with the result that the Club’s wait-list is now growing once again. If you have any friends or family members who are

considering joining the Club, it might be wise to encourage them to consider moving forward soon before the wait-list becomes

a deterrent.

While all of the facilities and functional components of Expansion 2012 are now substantially complete, there is still

considerable work to be done on remedial issues, deferred seasonal items and deficiencies. This work is expected to continue

through the spring, with full completion anticipated before the end of the current fiscal year (June 30, 2013). The Board is

working closely with Club Management to bring closure to the project and to wrap up all of the loose ends. Final project results

will be summarized and made available to our Shareholders in advance of the Club’s next Annual General Meeting.

Evaluation of the new facilities, our operating model and any remaining choke points or challenges will be ongoing. The Board

is keenly interested in evaluating how our new facility is functioning to ensure that the Club continues to operate efficiently,

effectively and with regard to our operational and financial resources and limitations and thereby provide value to our

Members. To assist with this evaluation, the Board has established a Member Services Committee. This Committee, which is

chaired by Dale Johns and includes Board members and ad hoc members, is intended to serve as a liaison among Members,

Management and the Board to help ensure that the Club continues to be responsive to the issues and concerns of our Members.

In addition, Tim Watson, our Vice President, will be focused on working with the Finance Committee (chaired by Blaine

Lennox) and Management to assess the financial performance of the Club post-expansion to ensure that we continue to operate

the Club in a financially responsible and sustainable manner.

We are aware that parking has been a challenge for our members over the past several months. At times we have been operating

more than 100 stalls below our normal capacity. I do believe that the Club’s staff has done an admirable job of scheduling and

working around the crunch times to the best of their ability. At this point in time, we have most of our original parking back

on-line, but for the remainder of the winter we will continue to be short more than 50 stalls from our final capacity. Thank you

to everyone for your continued patience and understanding while we have been working through this construction-related

challenge.

Recent guests to the CWC from several other Canadian private clubs have expressed their amazement at the wonderful

expansion to our facility. With our extensive and well maintained facilities, we are fortunate to have access to one of the best

private clubs in Canada. Please continue to support your Club by taking advantage of some of the excellent opportunities and

amenities at your disposal.

As always, the Club welcomes your feedback, opinions and comments. Please do not hesitate to contact the Club should you

have any questions or concerns. For those comfortable with computers, check the Club’s website for the staff person best able

to answer your inquiry, or if you are not sure, e-mail cwc@calgarywinterclub.com to get started. For those who prefer to

communicate other than electronically, feel free to speak directly with members of the Management team. To contact the Board

of Directors, submit your comment or concern in writing to our CEO, Kevin Boyles.

Thank you for your continued support.

Dan Halyk, President

Happy New Year to our entire CWC Family,

Kevin boyles | 403.338.2414 | kevinb@calgarywinterclub.com

As I look back on the past two years that I have served as your CEO, I am struck not only by how much we have undertaken

and accomplished, but also by the fabulous community and incredible opportunities that we are all privileged to enjoy here at

the Club. While the road has at times been a little bumpy, we have now completed (aside from the last of the paving and

landscaping), the largest expansion project in the history of our Club. Our building has undergone a major physical

transformation, but there have also been considerable efforts made in ensuring that our operations are effective, and that the

investment that each of you makes as a member of the Club, is handled wisely.

Looking to the year ahead, we will be attempting to “normalize” the Club’s operations by returning to more stable and

predictable activities and opportunities for our Membership, with a lot less disruption than what we’ve been experiencing over

the past two years. Our focus as a Staff will be on providing the best customer service possible and on working to ensure that

each visit to the Club is an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Our recent winter program registrations were very strong and the feedback that we are receiving indicates that we have finally

moved past most of our GameTime registration process issues. Over the past few months, member use and enjoyment of the

Club has returned to normal levels, following a notable decline in Club usage during the past two years of construction. If you

have not been as active in the Club over the past two years as you would normally be, I would encourage you to come check

things out, and to take full advantage of all of the exceptional facilities and activities that we have available.

I would also like to remind all Members of the Club’s requirement for you to be aware of and follow our posted Rules and

Regulations. The most current Club Rules and Regulations are always available on the Member side of the CWC website.

These guidelines are provided to ensure that each member contributes equitably to the operations of the Club, and is able to

enjoy all of the facilities and opportunities that we offer, without negatively impacting the enjoyment of any other member or

guest. With the completion of our new facilities, the Rules and Regulations are currently undergoing revision, with an updated

version anticipated within the next couple of months.

Your staff has worked very hard through the fall to undertake the challenge of operating our new facilities and to establish the

programming and opportunities that everyone has anticipated. I would like to thank the entire staff for their dedication and

patience in working through the many challenges and obstacles that we have faced. The Board and Senior Management

endeavor to make the best decisions possible, but the front line staff has to live our choices, and often take the brunt of any

dissatisfaction if things don’t go exactly as planned. Both our staff and the Club’s members have shown great patience and

willingness to work together to solve any issues that have come along. Thank you to everyone for your continued

understanding and support.

We are all fortunate to be a part of one of the best private recreational and social Clubs in Canada; with a truly phenomenal

facility, membership group, Board and staff. On behalf of your entire staff, please accept our best wishes for a safe, happy and

prosperous year. We look forward to providing you with many good times and enjoyable moments in the year to come.

Kevin Boyles, CEO

JUST A FRIENDLY REmINDER...

Any children that are not potty-trained

are required to wear some type of

“swimmers diaper” in the pool.

Entering the Water - Always use a

feet-first entry into shallow water. If

the lane is crowded, always ease in,

using a feet-first entry. You may dive

into the pool only from the deep end

and only if the pool is completely

clear ahead of you.

Direction of Swimming - Just like on

the road, stay to the right. Try to leave

the middle of the lane open.

Passing - If a swimmer knows you

are behind him/her and that you want

to pass, the best way to pass is at the

wall. A light touch on the foot can

signify this.

If you pass in the middle of the lane,

it should be between the backstroke

c a l g a r y w i n t e r c l u b . c o m | J a n u a r y. F e b r u a r y 2 0 1 3

LAp SWImmING ETIQUETTE

flags, and you should pass on the inside

or middle of the lane. Make sure the way

is clear; you can lightly touch the foot of

the swimmer in front of you to let them

know that you are passing. This will signal

the swimmer that you are passing to slow

down a little and “hug the lane.”

Number of People in a Lane

Several people (as many as 8 or more),

can fit in a lane if proper etiquette is

observed and swimmers of like speed are

together.

Lane Speed

It is very important to swim in a lane with

other swimmers of the same speed. Take

some time to observe the swimmers in the

pool and take your best guess as to where

you should swim.

INTERESTED IN A pRIvATE SWIm LESSON?

Contact the Aquatics Department at 403-338-2408 to

arrange a time.

stroke from Native Americans

during a trip to South America.

His stroke, a variant of the front

crawl, came to be called the Trudgen or Trudgeon. The arms

were brought forward, alternating, while the body rolled from

side to side. The kick was a scissors kick such as that familiarly

used in breaststroke, with one kick for two arm strokes,

although it is believed that the Native Americans had indeed

used a flutter kick. Front crawl variants used different ratios

of scissor kicks to arm strokes, or alternated with a flutter

(up-and-down) kick. The speed of the new stroke was in 1901

swimming 100 yards in 1:00.0, an improvement of about ten

seconds compared to the breaststroke record. This style is the

first European version of the front crawl, the fastest

swimming style known today. Due to its speed the Trudgen

became very quickly popular around the world, despite all the

ungentlemanlike splashing.

Stopping/Resting

If you are resting on the wall, stay to the

right side of the lane to stay away from

the swimmers coming in. Stopping in the

middle of the pool should be avoided. If

the lane is crowded and one person stops,

all will have to stop. Be aware of the

swimmers around you.

The Diplomacy of Shared Space

If someone makes a suggestion

concerning any of the mentioned etiquette

topics, try to make adjustments in the

spirit of cooperation. If you make a

suggestion to another swimmer, try to do

it as diplomatically as possible. Lifeguards

will intercede only if there is a problem

that cannot be resolved or if there appears

to be a safety concern.

Happy New Year! This is a great time to put your Body,

Mind, and Spirit first. Try something new! Enjoy our wide

variety of aqua fit classes to assist you in fulfilling your new

year’s resolution!

The water is a comfortable and supportive environment that

allows for intense exercise as well as relaxation. Whether you

are working hard in a serious strength class or participating

in a post rehab gentle class you are receiving the benefits that

the water provides. A few of those benefits are strength,

stability, flexibility, endurance, body awareness, relaxation,

and mental clarity. As well, the body moves easier and more

comfortably within the water allowing for the mind and the

spirit to feel lighter and lifted versus stressed. Feeling

empowered after a workout naturally boosts the body’s

overall energy. I am sure we all would love a little extra

energy after the holiday season.

All classes are drop in which allows for flexibility. We have

a few different payment options. Best value, seniors, or

coupons. Please refer to game time or our brochures located

at the sports desk and pool office for more details. Coupons

maybe used for aqua fit classes as well as land based fitness

classes. Personal training is also offered for those participants

who cannot fit our classes into their schedule. Please feel free

to call Anna Gorski, Aquatics Manager, at (403) 338-2408 if

you have further questions.

Classes start back on January 2, 2013. No classes on Monday,

February 18 th (Family Day).

Special Note: There is a price change for the registered gentle

class. The new price is now only $41.00/month starting in

January 2013. The two classes are 45 minutes and run from

11:05 - 11:50 am on Mondays and 10:05 - 10:50 am on

Fridays in the warmer beach pool.

THE DANGERS OF BREATH-HOLDING IN THE SWImmING pOOL

People who hold their breath while swimming or practicing

breath-holding underwater in pools are at risk of “passing

out” due to lack of oxygen. This phenomenon is commonly

referred to as shallow water blackout (SWB) and it is the

result of a SEVERE LACK OF OXYGEN TO THE BRAIN.

SWB may be the leading cause of swimmer death. The

number of deaths that can be attributed to SWB is not fully

known, as these deaths are often misdiagnosed as traditional

drowning. When oxygen levels fall to critical levels, blackout

is instantaneous and frequently occurs without warning. Most

of the time, underwater swimmers have no clue they are about

to be rendered unconscious and that they will be vulnerable to

death within minutes.

Swimmers who hyperventilate to excess before breathholding

are in particular danger. Hyperventilation is simply an

increase in the amount of air moving in and out of the lungs.

It may be due to rapid, shallow breathing, but deep slow

breathing can also result in hyperventilation. Paradoxically,

hyperventilation does not increase the amount of oxygen in

the body, but it does decrease the amount of circulating

carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide levels in the blood are

primarily responsible for the swimmer’s desire to breathe.

When the level of carbon dioxide in the blood is driven to

artificially low levels as a result of hyperventilation, the

desire to breathe is diminished. This artificial method of

fooling the body into thinking it does not need oxygen is

deadly, as it lures the breath-holder into believing he can hold

his breath longer than he safely can.

infant bookings

This session we have a lot of infants who are under 18 months

and we are asking for everyone’s cooperation in making the

childcare a positive experience for everyone. Please help us

make everyone’s visit positive by:

• Ensuring if you are not going to make your booking you

call to cancel

• Ensuring you pick up and drop off your infants on time

• Only bringing your stroller into the childcare if it is

necessary

• If you decide not to use your whole time please let us

know so we can give the part you are no longer interested

in using to another child

• Ensuring your infant is fed and changed before they come

in – when it is super busy it is challenging for us to be

able to change and feed everyone

• Leaving your cell phone number on the sign in sheet (and

taking it with you to whatever you are doing) so we can

call you if we need you. When the childcare is busy we

can not safely leave the room to track you down.

A GRAND SpRING

Tuesday, March 12 th | 1:00 - 2:30 pm

This is a chance for grandparent and grandchild to celebrate

spring together and enjoy planting seeds and making crafts

with each other. A small spring snack will be included. Either

the grandchild or grandparents must be a member but both

do not need to be. It is for children 3, 4, 5 and 6 years of age

with a grandparent. Register soon only a few spaces are still

available.

pRESCHOOL FOR FALL 2013

Our preschool is a 2 year program. Year 1 was formerly called

Beginning Steps and Year 2 was formerly called Games,

Giggles & Giant Steps. All children registered in the first year

will get to choose their times for the second year before new

children are allowed to register.

All classes regardless of start date will open for registration

on February 19 th at 6:00 am for active members and

February 26 th at 6:00 am for select wait list members.

Both Preschool Year 1 and Preschool Year 2 are 9 month

programs ending in May, with no cancellations unless another

child takes the spot.

important Age Changes for year 1

For this coming year we will be requiring all children to be 3

years of age before attending their first preschool class. In

order to accommodate children with birthdays after

September we will have 3 different start dates. You can

choose to register for a class starting in September, November

or January. If your child will not be 3 years of age by the first

day of the class you choose, then you will either need to sign

up and pay for the class until they turn 3 or wait until they are

3 to sign up and take a chance a spot will still be available.

Based on previous registrations these classes fill up quickly

so there is no guarantee a spot will still be available if you

choose to wait.

RULES AND ETIQUETTE OF THE FITNESS CENTRE

These were established by the Fitness Committee first and foremost for the safety of the user.

• Please come on time to your classes and appointments

• Members must be sixteen (16) years of age in order to use

the Fitness Centre (including track). Members aged 13 - 15

are permitted to use the weight room under the following

conditions: 1) A Junior Fitness Orientation has been

successfully completed and 2) they follow the specific

program set up and accompanied by a fitness trainer.

• Members under the age of thirteen (13) years will not be

permitted in the weight room unless approved according to

rule 12 in this section.

This is the strategy or principle that I use

for any and all of my training and advice

I give to others. Here is what they are and

some more details about them. The four

points of this square are;

1. Resistance training (weight training)

2. Endurance Training (cardio conditioning)

3. Fueling (diet and nutrition)

4. Recovery (rest and sleep)

Each corner is equally important to maintain

a balanced SQUARE however may

look different (especial 1 and 2) depending

on your training goal.

All points must be balanced for maximum

results and are both qualitative AND

quantitative in nature. Here is a little more

on each how to achieve and keep the balanced

SQUARE.

resistance training

Everyone should be doing some kind of

resistance training no matter what kind of

athlete you are. If you are a marathoner

you should do resistance to maintain the

integrity of your postural chain and

balanced body. For some people that is

lifting heavy weights, for others it can be

body weight exercises, or the TRX

system. It is also important to maintain

bone density with resistance training. As

we age our bones get brittle and break

much easier. Resistance training will

decrease that chance. It is important to

THE “SQUARE” OF TRAINING

do any resistance training with proper

technique (quality) but you also have to

do the work and put in the time to get the

benefits (quantity).

• Mobile devices are to be used with headphones, and

volume should be kept at an appropriate level. Please keep

cell phones on silent and if you need to take a call exit the

Fitness Centre.

• Track length: inner lane 139 meters, outer lane 173 meters

• Inner Lane: Slowest speeds (walking)

• Middle Lane: Medium speeds (brisk walk, slow jog)

• Outer Lane: Fastest speeds (quick jog/run, sprinting)

• Odd-numbered days: Counter-clockwise direction

• Even-numbered days: Clockwise direction

endurance training

Again, everyone should have some kind of

cardiovascular component to their training

SQUARE. It will look different from

person to person but it MUST be there.

Even if you are a bodybuilding or power

lifter still should have some cardio or

endurance training (this type of training

keeps the heart and lungs health at the

minim.) For most people that are just

working on keeping fit and well the

recommendation is at least 2 (better with

3) 20 minute

sessions of walk,

running, swimming,

or biking…the list

goes on and on.

Nutrition

You need to eat enough calories in the

day to gain, loose or maintain your weight

(quantity) of good clean healthy foods

(quality). No matter your goal you must

eat and fuel your body to support and

achieve it. Caloric intake will be very

different for each other. Just eat well!

Think of it as putting gas in your car. You

do not make it far in your car on an empty

tank. Think of it the same with food. Eat

so you can keep going.

sleep

All four corners are important however

the one that is forgotten the most is the

rest and recovery. SLEEP! Your body

needs rest time from training and workouts.

It needs rest just from the stress

of the day. Our bodies’ were not made

to endure heavy, constant, long term

stress, they can but they are not made

too. You have to take the time and rest,

have good quality rest and sleep in

order to be on your game. This affects

your training and your life in general.

The rest time is when our hard work

will actually pay off. That is when our

fitness gains are made is in the recovery

where we get stronger, faster, and fitter.

Even though each persons square is

very different from another, it still has

a balance so that your hit all 4 points.

That will help you achieve your goal.

Here at the Club there are services

that support all four corners of the

SQUARE. Resistance and Endurance

training can be achieved in the Fitness

Centre on your own, or with any of the

trainers, Group Fitness, or

registered programs. Brandin Roa offers

a variety of nutritional services to

fit you, your goals, and your lifestyle.

As part of rest and recovery corner, the

Club has Massage, Physiotherapy and

Body in Balance Acupuncture Clinic.

FOREvER FIT FITNESS

10 Ways to achieve a happy, healthy NeW year

Welcome to 2013! As we focus on this new year and start planning our New Year’s resolutions, there are 10 things you can do

to make this the best year ever. First and foremost - Plan to be active in 2013! Not just physically active, but intellectually and

socially active as well. You’ll feel better, improve your health and attitude, and keep your brain working. Plan on trying a new

activity over the next few months. Get a friend to join in and keep you motivated. Follow these next 10 steps and you’re sure to

have a rewarding year:

1. Invest in a good pair of shoes.

When your feet are happy, so are

you. Foot pain is not a normal part

of the aging process; so if you have

pain in your feet, see a podiatrist

(foot doctor). Comfortable,

well-fitting shoes and socks are a

must and worth the investment.

2. Play games. Games keep your

brain working and cognitive skills

healthy. Plus, it’s a fun way to

spend time with others. Trivia,

math puzzles, crosswords or card

games — there is a game for every

one. Challenge

yourself or

get others

involved for a

great mental

work-out!

3. Take a walk. Walk around the

block, walk to the store, walk a

mile, or walk around our track

upstairs with the multimillion

dollar view! Walking improves

lower body strength, maintains

mobility and helps prevent

cognitive decline. Research

studies have shown that two short

walks a day can be as good as a

single, longer stroll. Once you are

walking well, increase your speed

and distance.

4. Stand on one leg. Good balance

helps you with everyday

activities, like reaching into a

cupboard, and climbing stairs.

Practice standing on one leg by

slowly transferring your weight

from one leg to the other. When

you have improved your balance,

you will be able to walk outside

with confidence. All of our Forever

Fit classes are specifically

designed for older adults and

incorporate balance training.

c a l g a r y w i n t e r c l u b . c o m | J a n u a r y. F e b r u a r y 2 0 1 3

5. Visit an eye doctor. Failing eyesight

is not a given as we age. A study

reported in the Journal of the American

Medical Association found that almost

all the vision impairment in a large

group of people over 60 years old

could be improved with corrective

lenses. Age-related macular

degeneration is the most common

vision loss as we get older. An

optometrist can determine the best plan

for your eyes.

6. Increase your physical activity.

Exercising does a lot of good things,

not only for physical health, but also

for maintaining cognitive skills and

reducing the risk of dementia. You

have to use it or you will lose it. Since

most people already know this, the

question becomes, “How do I get

started?” First, remember that

physical activity includes housework

or yardwork, walking to the store

and playing with your grandchildren.

Second, make opportunities for

activity: our Forever Fit classes are

open to all fitness levels and

experience. There is a class for

everyone! Check out our schedules

posted around the Club to see the

complete offering.

7. Seek out your friends, family and

neighbors. Social connections are

good for your emotional well-being.

Studies have shown that friendships

and the social support network not

only prevent loneliness, but also

provide a ready source of intellectual,

physical and volunteer activities.

Besides, research shows that people

with a strong

social network

lowered their

risk of Alzheimer’s

disease and

other forms of

dementia.

8. Eat fruits and vegetables. Switch to

a diet emphasizing fruits, vegetables,

legumes, cereals, and fish, while

limiting dairy and meat. This diet has

been shown to lower your body

weight and cholesterol levels. It is

also associated with lowering the

risk of Alzheimer’s disease. People

who eat a balanced, plant-based diet

don’t worry much about counting

calories, and gain many vitamins and

minerals. You can find fruits and

vegetables fresh, frozen, canned,

dried, and juiced.

9. Laugh a lot. Laughing increases

circulation, immune system defenses

and mental functioning while

decreasing stress hormones. Watch

comedies or read a humorous book

and the comics.

10. Get enough sleep. When life gets

hectic, adequate sleep seems to fall

by the wayside. Don’t let it go.

Get your seven to eight hours of

sleep each night. Insomnia effects

almost half of adults 60 years and

older, states the National Institute on

Aging, making it the most common

sleep complaint. If you have trouble

falling or staying asleep, make a few

changes in your habits, such as

skipping daytime naps, adopting a

nighttime routine and starting a

regular exercise program. Changing

your habits is more successful at

improving sleep than taking

medications.

Based on an article from the International Council on

Active Aging.

Forever Fit is now offering 10 drop-in

classes a week!

classes, contact Kelly Skeavington at

Parents Flippin’ Night Out

Friday, February 22, 2013 | Cost: $20 per person

Workout: 6:30 - 7:15 pm | Wine and snacks: 7:15 - 8:00 pm

It’s the parents’ turn to jump, roll and play on the gymnastics

equipment. Experience what a great workout gymnastics is,

regardless of age and ability. The session will include some

basic techniques that you can show off to your kids, friends,

etc, a gymnastics inspired strength circuit and cool down with

stretches. Wine and snacks will be provided after all of our

hard work. So drop your children off at Childcare and come

try something different!

55+ A Perfect balance: Free Drop-in Classes

January 11 th & 18 th | 9:15 - 10:00 am

Still actively hiking, skiing, curling, etc? Most people over 25

believe that they are too old to start gymnastics, but it is never

too late to gain the benefits from practicing this sport. Ordinarily

we take our balance for granted but it is an important

and vital part of our daily life. Though there are often many

factors involved with decreased balance as we age, a lot of

this decline is simply due to our inactivity. Gymnastics is all

about balance work, core and trunk strengthening and resistance

training. Join us for a couple introductory classes prior

to the commencement of the registered classes and discover

how beneficial this cross-training class can be in keeping you

in peak condition for the mountains, the ice or the trails. Open

to all 55+ Members. Class is held in the Gymnastics Centre.

Please dress in active wear and no shoes.

towards any challenge that comes her way is inspiring. She

has a courageous approach when practicing elements, rarely

shying away from attempting her double jumps. Working

through all disciplines of skating, her eagerness to excel helps

her progress through the test stream. Her efforts in

maintaining a high level of flexibility with off ice stretch and

a sharp memory for intricate footwork contributes in her

development as a well-rounded skater. Keep up the great

work, Katelynn!

Something else we take pride in is providing our monthly

themed family skates for all to enjoy. They are typically on a

Sunday afternoon, during the general skate time with cookies

and hot chocolate for those who attend. We turn on our new

and exciting disco lights as well as have music and

decorations around the rink catered to the theme of the skate.

Everyone is welcome to come out and have a good time!

COACHING TEAm CHANGE

With David Duncalf leaving to take up his new role as Head

Squash Professional at the Glencoe club, we began our search

for a new coach for our team. We had many applicants for

the post but one stood out head and shoulders above the rest.

For the very first time we will have a Canadian coach on our

team! Glenn Stark will be joining us in early January. Glenn’s

resume is impressive to say the least. Brief highlights are: 24

years professional coaching experience – most recently as

the Cayman Islands National Coach, Squash Canada Level 4

qualified and 9 years as Canadian National Junior Women’s

coach! I hope you will agree we have a truly world class

coach joining us. We will have a welcome social for Glenn on

January 11 th in conjunction with Fanatic Friday.

SUSIE pLAYS FOR TEAm CANADA!

CWC assistant professional Susie King had the honor of

representing Team Canada in the Women’s World Team

Championships held in Nimes, France. Before leaving for

France, Susie joined her teammates for an intensive two day

mini training camp, led by former world champion Jonathan

Power, held at the national squash academy in Toronto. Then

on to France the team went. Play commenced in a state of the

art facility housing three full glass exhibition courts. To add

to the excitement many matches were streamed live on the

internet. Team Canada were drawn in a pool with

reigning champions Australia and Austria, where they

finished second in their group behind Australia which was

no surprise. Into the knockout stages they went, first up was

Team New Zealand. After an extremely close match they lost

that tie 2 matches to 1; the one victory came from Susie who

beat the current world ranked number 34 player in a tight five

set match. After victory over the Czech Republic followed

by a loss to hosts France, Team Canada found themselves

playing for 11 th position again a strong South African team.

Unfortunately, they came out second best to South Africa for

a final placing of 12 out of 26 teams who took part. Susie had

a truly great trip and has memories to cherish for life and, of

course, we are very proud to have a national level athlete as

part of our coaching team.

TENNIS ETIQUETTE

A common occurrence when playing tennis at any club, is that

a ball rolls onto your court from a different court. When this

happens you should pass the ball back to the court gently, but

make eye contact with them before passing the ball. Nobody

likes getting balls hit at them, and it posses as a safety hazard

if the ball rolls into their feet. You can also pass the ball softly

to the back of their court, if you are on the next court to them.

If your ball rolls onto someone else’s court, do not go running

after it. Let the players from that court get the ball and pass it

to you.

If you have any questions concerning tennis etiquette talk to

one of your friendly Tennis Pros.

TENNIS TIpS - THE SmASH/OvERHEAD

The smash should be an almost automatic point. However, I have noticed in our Cardio Tennis classes that when we play points

that start with a smash there are a lot of players struggling to hit a good consistent quality smash. So I decided to give everyone

a few tips to make there overhead a little more smashing.

tip #1 - Get turned!

One of the first things you do when you see your opponent hitting a lob,

is to turn sideways with your arm in a throwing position. From this

position you then move to your impact point. The most common

movement is a backwards shuffle to hit a lob that is going behind you.

tip #2 - Go get it!

The most common issue with smashes is letting the ball drop too low.

Reaching up to hit the ball will increase both consistency and power of

your shot. So if you find the ball is getting too low on you, try swinging

earlier and go get the ball.

tip #3 - big target!

The smash should be an automatic point, but you don’t need to crush it on the line to win the point. Pick a nice big target and

stick with it. Just being at the net and hitting a solid smash will take enough time away from your opponent to win the point.

TENNIS CLUB CHAmpIONSHIpS

Michelle completed her 2200 hours of training at the M. H.

Vicars School of Massage Therapy, with a focus on

therapeutic massage. She is experienced in a variety of

techniques, including deep tissue, stress and injury massage,

and relaxation massage. Before becoming a massage

therapist, Michelle ran a first-aid training company, and

taught first-aid and swimming lessons here at the Club, before

turning her interest in human physiology to the field of

Massage therapy. Outside of work, Michelle loves anything to

do with skiing and surfing, snow and water! She believes that

the quality of massage can greatly improve with strong

dialogue and communication between the therapist and

client, so visit her up in the Co-Ed Massage room in the

Fitness Centre and let her relieve your aches and pains!

Michelle is currently available Tuesday mornings, and

FEELING THE WINTER BLUES?

Try this Miso Soup recipe from Leslie Ring-Adams of Body

in Balance Acupuncture!

Did you know that Miso Soup with Scallions is actually an

ancient herbal remedy for colds? In 300 AD famous

herbalist, Ge Hong, wrote about Miso Soup in a book called

‘Bei ji zhou hou fang’ or ‘Emergency Formulas to Keep Up

Ones Sleeve’.

The soup is indicated for the onset of a cold when a person

is just beginning to feel a headache, stuffy nose and a slight

fever. So, the next time you feel a cold coming on, be sure to

have your miso!

Miso Soup (Serves 4)

Ingredients

• 6 cups water

• 3 - 4 tablespoons Aka Miso or red soy

bean paste (usually sold in the

refrigerated section)

• 3 - 5 green onion stalks, chopped

1. Dissolve the miso in a little bit of

boiling water (about 2 tsp.)

2. Bring the rest of the water to a boil in a

saucepan and add the miso & most of the green onions.

3. Simmer for 5 - 10 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and top with the rest of the green

onions and serve.

Chris Kay | Recreation Manager

When the Calgary Winter Club Board of Directors and Club Management

starting planning the most recent expansion project almost seven years ago,

one area that took a lot of additional planning was to bring in the right

staff. The new Recreation Department was just one of the new exciting

areas that the Club implemented to help give our members more options to

choose from. This department is in charge of Youth & Teen, Climbing, the

Gymnasium, Summer Camps and much more. Hiring the right person for this

role was crucial to hit the ground running.

In August of 2012 the Club hired Chris Kay as the Recreation Manager. Chris

comes to the Club with an array of experience and education. Locally raised,

Chris graduated from Cochrane high school before going on to complete his

Bachelor of Kinesiology at the University of Regina. During his time at the

U of R, Chris had the honour of representing his school as a member of the

varsity track and field team. He competed as a combined events athlete in

the pentathlon and decathlon. One of his proudest moments in track and

field is when he set a provincial discus record at the Alberta Summer Games.

Before coming to the Calgary Winter Club, Chris was at the new Spray Lakes

Family Sport Centre in Cochrane as the Program Coordinator. As the facility’s

first ever Program Coordinator, Chris had the privilege of designing and

creating new programs for preschool, youth, teens and adults. In two years

Chris grew the programs department to a team of 30 staff and offered over

50 weekly drop-in programs. At Spray Lakes, Chris gained the experience

he needed to take the next step into a Management role and to lead a

successful team.

Chris comes to the Calgary Winter Club with a drive and determination to

succeed. “I want to take a more active leadership role in Youth, Teen and

Adult Recreation programs,” states Chris. “I am really looking forward to

building a successful new department within the Calgary Winter Club and to

introduce new programs that members have never seen before.”

The Club is very excited to have a talented individual leading our Recreation

Department, CWC members can expect many great things for years to come

with Chris Kay as the Recreation Manager. If you have not had the privilege

of meeting Chris, head up to his office in the new area of the Club to say

hello. He always has a smile on his face and is eager to meet all of our

wonderful members.
