Newsletter - Garcelon Civic Center

December 2014
Happy Holidays from the Garcelon Civic Center!
Looking back, we think the phased approach has proven to be good for
the Garcelon Civic Center and for the community. Our walking track has
been our introduction to so many people and already it is extremely
well used. The Aces hockey team has been an incredible addition to the
rink and who knew that they would draw as many as a thousand fans
per game. Most recently the pool and fitness center has attracted a
whole new group of happy smiling people.
Through all of this, and hopefully mostly in the background to our
members and guests entering the civic center, our staff has been on a
very steep learning curve. The Garcelon Civic Center is a new and very
sophisticated building, and a lot goes into running both the physical
facilities as well as software for telephones, sound systems and the
scheduling of the various components. We have had to do our own form
of “warming-up” as we learned many new systems and procedures.
And it does not stop now that we are open. The full impact of the
Garcelon Civic Center means working closely with organizations and
businesses in the town, and the region, to introduce programs and
events that will fulfill the cultural and tourism impact that was the
original vision of the people who wanted this great facility built.
Everyone knows how important it is to do warm-up stretches before you
begin a full exercise program. Warming up before doing major activity
gets the blood going and helps to avoid unnecessary injuries. Basically,
the more sophisticated your exercise program, the more you should warm
up. As the saying goes you should always “Walk before you run”!
We at the Garcelon Center have over the last few months been reminded
of our own need to “warm-up” as we began to open this beautiful facility.
As we worked through the phased opening of each component beginning
with the walking track, then the rink, the conference facilities and most
recently the aquatic and fitness center, we were forced to take things
slow, to do our homework, and to avoid risking injury to ourselves and
to the public who wanted very much to use the various facilities.
In all fairness, we did not plan it this way in the beginning. Like everyone
else, we envisioned the big opening with everything done at once, with
everything working right from the “get-go”. If we had gotten our own
way, we would probably have tried to “hit the ground running” right
from day one.

Over the next few months, we expect to work with the business
community and organizations to add value to the overall economic
development of St Stephen and Charlotte/Washington County. We
expect that concerts and events will begin to be a bigger and bigger
component of subsequent editions of this newsletter as we learn to
work with more and more partners and as we learn to host events that
work within our collective capability.
As you read this newsletter, we invite you to think of ways we can
work together.
In effect, while the Garcelon Civic Center is open, we are really in a
way still just warming-up!

Registration for swimming lessons is now open until Jan 5th
The winter session of swimming lessons is 10 weeks in length
with one class a week and starting January 8th.
Registration will be accepted at our Aquatic and Fitness Center
orientation desk on the 2nd level.
We accept cash, cheque, debit and credit.
Swim Lesson Descriptions:
Parent & Tot 1: Designed for the 4 to 12-month-old to learn to enjoy the water with the parent.
Parent & Tot 2: Designed for the 12 to 24-month-old to learn to enjoy the water with the parent.
Parent & Tot 3: Designed for the 2 to 3-year-old to learn to enjoy the water with the parent.
Preschool 1: We encourage the parent to participate until their child lets them know they can do it
themselves (thank you very much). These preschoolers will have fun learning to get in and out of the
water. We'll help them jump into chest deep water. They'll try floats on their front and back, and
glides on their side.
Preschool 2: These preschoolers learn to jump into chest deep water by themselves, and get in and
get out wearing a Personal Flotation Device. They'll submerge and exhale underwater. While wearing
a Personal Flotation Device they'll glide on their front and back.
Preschool 3: These youngsters will try both jumping and a side roll into deep water while wearing a
Personal Flotation Device. They'll recover objects from the bottom in waist-deep water. They'll work on
kicking and gliding through the water on their front and back.
Preschool 4: Advanced preschoolers will learn to do solo jumps into deeper water and get out by
themselves. They'll do side roll entries and open their eyes underwater. They'll master a short (3-5 m)
swim on their front and gliding and kicking on their side.
Preschool 5: These youngsters get more adventuresome with a forward roll entry wearing a PFD and
holding their breath underwater for up to 10 sec. They'll work on longer front and back crawl swims,
interval training and get a giggle out of whip kick.
Swimmer 1: These beginners will become comfortable jumping into water with and without a
Personal Flotation Device. They'll learn to open their eyes, exhale and hold their breath underwater.
They'll work on floats, glides and kicking through the water on their front and back.
Swimmer 2: These advanced beginners will jump into deeper water, and learn to be comfortable
falling sideways into the water wearing a Personal Flotation Device. They'll be able to support
themselves at the surface without an aid, learn whip kick, swim 10-15 m on their front and back,
and be introduced to flutter kick interval training (4 x 9-12 m).
Swimmer 3: These junior swimmers will dive and do in-water front somersaults. Their new bag of
tricks includes handstands and completion of the Canadian Swim to Survive Standard. They'll work on
10-15m of front crawl, back crawl and whip kick. Flutter kick interval training increases to 4 x 25 m.
Swimmer 4: These intermediate swimmers will swim 5 m underwater and lengths of front, back
crawl, whip kick, and breaststroke arms with breathing. They'll cap it all off with front crawl sprints
over 25 m and 4 x 25 m front or back crawl interval training.

when registering two or more individuals from the same family in
the same session the third registration is complementary.
* Minimum age requirements are set by the Lifesaving Society. Proof of age and prerequisite
qualifications are required prior to registration and/or by the first day of the program/activity.
Swimmer 5: These swimmers will master shallow dives, cannonball entries, eggbeater kicks, and inwater backward somersaults. Surface dives will take them down to underwater swims. They'll refine
their front and back crawl over 50 m swims of each, and breaststroke over 15-25 m. Then they'll pick
up the pace in 25 m sprints and two interval training bouts: 4 x 50 m front or back crawl; and 4 x 1015 m breaststroke.
Swimmer 6: These advanced swimmers will rise to the challenge of sophisticated aquatic skills
including stride entries, compact jumps and lifesaving kicks like eggbeater and scissor kick. They'll
develop strength and power in head-up breaststroke sprints over 25 m. They'll easily swim lengths of
front crawl, back crawl, and breaststroke, and they'll complain about the 300 m workout. Rookie
Patrol (8-10 hr.): Swimmers continue stroke development with 50 m swims of front crawl, back crawl
and breaststroke. Lifesaving Sport skills include a 25 m obstacle swim and 15 m object carry. First aid
focuses on assessment of conscious victims, contacting EMS and treatment for bleeding. Fitness
improves in 350 m workouts and 100 m timed swims.
Ranger Patrol (8-10 hr.): Swimmers develop better strokes over 75 m swims of each stroke. They
tackle Lifesaving Sport skills in a lifesaving medley, timed object support and rescue with a buoyant
aid. First aid focuses on assessment of unconscious victims, treatment of victims in shock and
obstructed airway procedures. Skill drills develop a strong lifesaving foundation.
Star Patrol (8-10 hr.): Swimmers are challenged with 600 m workouts, 300 m timed swims and a 25
m object carry. Strokes are refined over 100 m swims. First aid focuses on treatment of bone or joint
injuries and respiratory emergencies including asthma and allergic reactions. Lifesaving skills include
defence methods, victim removals and rolling over and supporting a victim face up in shallow water.
Adult 1: You'll work towards a 10-15 m swim on your front and back. You'll do jump entries from the
side and recover an object from the bottom in chest deep water. Improve your fitness and your flutter
kick with 4 x 9-12 m interval training.
Adult 2: Kick it up a notch working on two interval training workouts of 4 x 25 m kicking and front or
back crawl. You'll be able to perform dive entries and demonstrate breaststroke arms and breathing
over 10-15 m. You'll be supporting yourself at the surface for 1-2 minutes, and showing off your
handstands in shallow water.
Adult 3: No sweat (or at least none anyone can see). You'll learn eggbeater, stride entries and
compact jumps. You'll be doing a 300 m workout and sprinting 25-50 m. You'll master your front
crawl, back crawl and breaststroke. Whew!
