his mother’s lover upon his surprise return home after being released from a
prisoner of war camp. The trauma sends Tommy into a nearly catatonic state,

pinball and his wizardry with the flippers propels him into the national spotlight. Tommy is a story of hope, healing and human spirit that follows this
child’s journey from darkness to triumph. Based on The Who’s 1969 album,
this one-of-a-kind production is filled with soaring anthems and bursting
ballads, mind-exploding images and pulsating dance numbers. Be a part of

Pre-Mite League (Must be enrolled in a Pre-Mite class to play in the Pre-Mite League) Pre-Mite League is your player’s first introduction to the game
of hockey. The league follows USA Hockey’s Initiation Program format of cross ice games. The ice is divided into smaller sections and each section has it’s own
game. This format allows the beginner skater to have more success while enjoying the first experience in a game setting. Scoring is not kept to decrease the
competitiveness of the games and keep the emphasis on learning and having fun. During games positions are not followed, allowing for a free flowing game
that is easier for kids to enjoy and better for their skill development. All Pre-Mites are recommended to join the Pre-Mite League as an addition to their regular
class. All games and teams are divided by talent level and not by age. Full equipment required for Pre-Mites. Equipment needed: Helmet with face mask, elbow
pads, shin guards, hockey gloves, hockey skates and stick. Rental equipment bags available. Inquire at West Meadows. No class dates: 11/26

The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is a U.S. non-profit soccer

each game. Balanced teams. AYSO believes that children enjoy playing more,
and learn more from the game, when teams are as closely matched as
possible. Open registration. Any child who wishes to play may do so,
regardless of ability. Positive coaching. AYSO holds that children develop best
when they are given encouragement, rather than being “put down.” AYSO
expects coaching to be positive, instructional and encouraging at all times.
Good sportsmanship. AYSO tries to instill good sportsmanship in all of its programs. Player Development. The goal of Player Development is to
embrace the objective of improving the soccer skills and knowledge of every
AYSO player. Spring Season runs late April to early June. Fall season runs late

Bike and Walk Pathway
Bike and Walk Pathway

Recommendations
• Bikes need to be on the right hand side
of the path- riders should alert pedestrians
•
•
•
•
•
from behind with a bike bell or a “passing on
your left.”
Stay aware of bikes and runners- listen
and walk to the side of the path to allow bikers
and runners to pass safely.
Cross safely- the pathway intersects at busy
roads. Please make sure to use the cross walk
and look both ways.
Be visible- wear bright colors, stay on one
side of the path and use caution at dawn and
twilight.
Hang up and walk- you are less likely to
recognize traffic, passing bikes and runners and
tripping hazards while on your cell phone.
Walk dogs on leashes- it is a Park District
Ordinance that all dogs must be leashed at all
times.

Disc Golf
North Salk Park, 3160 Owl Drive
Disc golf is a game in which individual
players throw a flying disc at a target.
According to the Professional Disc Golf
Association, “The object of the game is to
traverse a course from beginning to end in
the fewest number of throws of the disc.”
Disc Golf provides low impact
aerobic exercise which is geared to all
ages. The first hole is by the parking lot
at North Salk Park and players continue
toward the Nelson Sports Complex across
the creek to the sled hill, up along the bike
path to the Library and back across the
creek. Disc Golf tee boxes and targets are
identified just like a golf course.
No reservations necessary.

Rolling Meadows Park District complies with the Americans with Disabilities
Act, legislation which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability.
Under the ADA, the Park District makes reasonable accommodations in
recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability
who meets essential eligibility requirements for that leisure program and
facilities. The ADA, which took effect in 1992, requires that recreation
programs offered by the Park District be available in the most integrated
setting appropriate for each individual.
Insurance Disclaimer
The Rolling Meadows Park District does not carry premises medical payments
insurance coverage. The Park District is a local public entity and is subject to
the Illinois Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act
that provides certain immunities and defenses to claims for damages made
against local public entities. Without these statutory immunities, fees
associated with recreational activities, programs, properties and/or facilities
could well be prohibitive.

Catalog Information
This catalog is prepared months in advance of its delivery. Sometimes there
are errors or program changes by the time the catalog is published. We
apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and when errors do occur,
our staff will advise you of the change as quickly as possible. The most current
catalog copy, with updates, will always be posted on our website,
rmparks.org. (bottom left corner).
Residents & Non-Residents
The Rolling Meadows Park District is a separate, tax supported agency apart
from the City of Rolling Meadows. This means that you may have a City of
Rolling Meadows address but do not pay taxes to the Rolling Meadows Park
District. Therefore, all participants that are non-taxpaying residents of the
park district are required to pay an additional fee depending on the program.
Non-Residents are welcome to join any Rolling Meadows Park District
program. A quick way to determine your park district resident status is to look
at your tax bill; the park district that you pay taxes to will be listed.
Community Agreements
We are fortunate to have intergovernmental agreements with School
District 15 and 214 and St. Colette for usage of their indoor and outdoor
spaces.
Thank You Volunteers!
We are fortunate to have many volunteers that help at our Senior Center and
at programs/events throughout the year. A special thanks to everyone who
vounteers at the Park District.
Reciprocal Agreements
The Rolling Meadows Park District enjoys a great working relationship with
many of our surrounding park districts. We encourage our residents to take
advantage of these different facilities and programs at an in-district rate. See

Illinois Distinguished Agency
The Rolling Meadows Park District has been a Distinguished Accredited
Agency since 1996. Accreditation is a voluntary program that uses a set of
standards to evaluate and identify agencies throughout the state that provide
exceptional Park and Recreation services to their community to improve their
quality of life.
Weather Cancellations
Local school closings/cancellations due to weather do not always affect the
cancellation of Park District programs. Our Early Childhood programming will
follow District 15 closing procedures for inclement weather. Youth
basketball practices that take place at our local schools generally are
canceled if District 15 is closed. For specific program and event cancellations,
visit rmparks.org or call the facility in which your program takes place.

Have You Moved Or Have Changed Information?
Please notify the Park District with your change of address, phone number
or email address. It is important that we have current information.
Registration forms have a box at the top for you to check if you have any
updated info.
Transportation
We offer a variety of programs that are not held at a Rolling Meadows
Park District facility. Under each description in this brochure, it states as to
where the program/event is held. Transportation for these programs is not
provided, unless specified.
Recycling
You may not see recycle containers in our facilities and parks, but please
know that the waste management service we contract separates the
recyclable material from the solid waste at their state-of-the art facility.
For Your Safety...
The entrance/driveway into the Community Center is a “No Cell Phone
Zone” while operating a motor vehicle. Many young children are dropped
off at our preschool or use the playground near the entrance.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Kimball Hill Pond Information
With the cold weather coming, we are encouraging parents to talk to their
children about the dangers of walking on or playing around any frozen bodies
of water. In particular, please advise them to beware of the pond located in
Kimball Hill Park. The Rolling Meadows Park District staff will monitor the
thickness of the ice and a RED flag and RED barrels will be placed at the pond
when conditions are unsafe. When the thickness is safe for skating the barrels
will be removed and a YELLOW flag will be raised to indicate that the pond is
safe for skating. However, caution should always be used when on frozen
bodies of water. Be advised that ice fishing is not permitted at Kimball Hill
Pond.
Sled Hill Information
The lighted sled hill in North Salk Park will be open provided that there is at
least 3 inches of snow and the wind chill is not colder that -20 degrees. A RED
flag will indicate that the sled hill is closed. A YELLOW flag will indicate that the
sled hill is open but unsupervised and caution should be exercised.
