GREENPOINT YMCA Winter/Spring 2011 Membership & Program Brochure ExxonMobil Created New Green Technology Program for Teens with $150,000 Donation to the Greenpoint YMCA With a history of generous support to the Greenpoint YMCA, ExxonMobil made a groundbreaking gift of $150,000 in 2010 to create a new Green technology program for teens in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg com- munities. The Greenpoint Green Team Summer Program was launched in the sum- mer of 2010 with a grant from ExxonMobil. The program was developed and administered in partnership with the NYU Wallerstein Collaborative for Urban Environmental Education and the Greenpoint YMCA. This program, which has seen great success running in other parts of the U.S., establishes the Greenpoint YMCA as a leader for creative, cutting edge programming for teens and the go-to organization for grassroots, ground-up program building and partnership. This environmental education initiative for high school students was designed to include four overarching themes: green technology, careers, community service and history. Students developed a sense of place and made connections to people and resources in the community and increased their knowledge of native plants, composting, and street tree care. They were able to apply the knowledge and skills to the Lentol Garden project. The participants increased their skills in collabo- ration and teamwork and learned about environmental issues impacting eir community. They also learned about environmental careers and opportunities available to them through the Greenpoint YMCA and NYU. ExxonMobil is truly a lead supporter of teen development, green tech- nology and community service. We at the Greenpoint YMCA are so grateful for this support, and look forward to the return of the program in 2011. | i | Greenpoint YMCA Youth & Family Staff Training Academy Sponsored by ExxonMobil All of us at the Greenpoint YMCA extend our heartfelt thanks to ExxonMobil, who through their generous grant of $25,000 have made possible the “Greenpoint YMCA Youth & Family Staff Training Academy sponsored by ExxonMobil.” ExxonMobil has generously supported our annual Strong Kids Campaign since 1997, standing with us for over 13 years as we strive to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

Your child must be able to per- form ALL the skills in the previous level to be enrolled into the next level. Children learn physical skills at different rates; therefore it is very common for children to repeat a level. All children will be swim-tested the first day of the session to determine if they are registered for the appropriate class. Instructors reserve the right to switch any participant who they feel is not enrolled in the appropriate level into the correct level. Swim Lesson Policies Although we strive for consistency in the teaching staff, there are occasions when a substitute teacher will be necessary. This is a better alternative than canceling a lesson. While we encourage parents to discuss their child’s swim progress with the swim instructors, to help classes start on time please request an appointment with the instructor if time between classes does not permit for a complete discussion. Make-up Lessons and Swim Credit 1. Classes missed due to weather, holidays when the YMCA remains open, or by choice of the participant can not be made up, credited or refunded. 2. If a participant misses a private swim lesson and does not inform the instructor at least 24 hours prior to the lesson, there will be no credits, or make up lessons given. Private swim lessons are non-refundable. 3. If a participant withdraws (with approval) from a swim class at least 1 week (7 days) in advance of the start of class, he or she will receive a full refund. A 50% refund will be granted to participants who withdraw (with approval) after attending 2 classes or less. No refund will be granted to par- ticipants who withdraw after the second class. 4. If a participant withdraws from a swim class for medical reasons he or she will receive a YMCA credit or refund for the remaining classes if the request is accompanied by a doctor’s note. | 30 | Leon and Daniel AQUATICS PROGRAMS POLICIES & PROCEDURES Leon began his Shrimp/Kipper class when he was a little more than 13 months old. He was really frightened of the water having only experienced it during our summer beach holiday. Now he loves it, and sees water as a place to swim and play! His favorite is jumping off the side of the pool into our arms. | 31 | Swim Lessons 1. The first day of each session is reserved for swim-testing and evaluations. All appropriate changes will be made to ensure quality instruction for your child. If you have any questions about your child’s swim level after the first day of class, please contact Meghan Gough, Aquatics Director at (212) 912-2275. 2. Children will be moved up to the next level once all of the skills in the previ- ous level have been completed. Many skills in certain levels depend on physical development, strength and coordination. Please remember that each child is unique and develops at his or her own pace and their progression through these levels varies greatly. 3. NO street shoes are to be worn on our pool deck and that strollers do not come beyond the locker room doors. Parents please remember that we are trying keep a clean and healthy environment for your children and our participants. 4. For your child’s safety, to avoid distractions and so our participants may receive the very best swim instruction, parents are invited to observe class during the first and last classes of each session. On other class days, parents may drop off children and remain for 5 minutes, then return 5 minutes before the end of class. Thank you for your understanding. 5.
