in the provision of services, programs or facilities to individuals
with disabilities. NISRA works closely with its member park
districts and recreation departments to provide information
on program inclusion, facility accessibility and communication

recreation programs to enable participation by an individual
with a disability who meets essential eligibility requirements
for that recreation program.

Special Olympics
Special Olympics programs welcome participants with a developmental delay, ages 8 and
older. All Special Olympics athletes must have a valid Application for Participation (APP) on
file in order to compete. Call Dave with questions about Special Olympics eligibility, training
programs, competition or sponsorship opportunities.
Special Olympics Competition
Special Olympics was developed as a competitive (vs.
recreational) program to encourage developmentally
disabled individuals to challenge themselves to achieve
their highest ability level. Many Special Olympic athletes
display the competitive spirit associated with sports, and
agree to the training necessary for competition.
Just like people without disabilities, some children and
adults with disabilities enjoy sports and exercise in a
non-competitive environment. They may not understand
competition or may struggle with the regulations of
competition. For those, Special Olympics may not be
appropriate, and there are other programs that may
be more suitable and enjoyable.
NISRA staff can assist with assessing which type of program
would be the best match for the participant’s interests,
abilities, time and convenience. NISRA also has a Special
Olympic Sports Training & Competition Policies & Procedures Manual with further information & guidelines that is
available to you. Please call the NISRA office for a copy or
to speak with Dave about Special Olympics programs.
Let me win, but if I cannot win,
Let me be brave in the attempt.

Severe Weather Guidelines
The guidelines below are used by NISRA Staff to determine
whether to delay or cancel programs. Typically participants will
be called when conditions force a change in the schedule.
Cold Weather Guidelines
Outdoor programs may be cancelled if any of the following
conditions exist:
•Temperature is below 10 degrees
•Wind Chill is below 0 (regardless of temperature)
Indoor programs will cancelled based upon the facility’s
decision and/or whether authorities have issued driving
advisories, or Winter Storm or Blizzard warnings.
If you are unsure about program cancellation after office hours,
visit our web site at www.nisra.org, or you may call the NISRA
office at 815-459-0737, ext. 300 where there may be updated
information available.
Illness Guidelines
In order to prevent the spread of illness, it is recommended
that participants not attend NISRA programs when any of the
following conditions exist:
•Fever over 100 degrees
•Vomiting within the last 24 hours
•Persistent diarrhea
•Persistent cough and/or cold symptoms
•“Pink Eye” (conjunctivitis)
•Symptoms of mumps, measles, chicken pox, strep throat, flu,
impetigo, or Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease
•Runny nose with yellow or green discharge (indicates infections)
•Lice or mites present
•Contagious rash or rash of unknown origin
You will be contacted immediately to make arrangements for the
participant to go home if any of these symptoms are present.
Mandated Reporters
NISRA staff are mandated by the State of Illinois to report
to the DCFS hotline if they observe a situation that provides
reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or neglect. Workers in
certain professions, including “recreational program” personnel
have this legal mandate. Staff are trained in signs & symptoms
of abuse & neglect, and the procedure for making a report.

registration information
A Registration Note...
Although some NISRA programs are offered according to
disability classifications, these classifications should only be
considered as recommendations. For example, if a particular
program is offered for children with learning disabilities (LD)
and your child does not have that classification, but meets other
social, physical and behavioral requirements to participate in the
program, please feel free to register for it.
Annual Registration Update
Once each year, all registrants must complete an Annual Update
form (included in the summer & fall brochures) in order for NISRA
to update its records. This process helps the staff provide the
safest & best care possible.
Registration Information
1. Registration is conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Residents of NISRA’s member districts who register by the
Resident Priority Registration date have priority over out-ofdistrict “Non-Resident” participants.
2. If a program reaches maximum registration, a waiting list
will be started. Those on the list will be notified.
3. A program may be cancelled if enrollment is less than the
determined minimum. Your account will be credited unless a
refund is preferred or the participant joins another program.
4. Registration is considered complete and will be processed
only when payment is received, unless other arrangements have
been made. NOTE: Registration will not be processed if there is a
balance due from past seasons.
5. Out-of-district “Non-resident” participants are welcome to
register for all programs. However, a non-resident fee is charged
(see program description) and registration is processed after the
Resident Priority Registration date.
6. Instructors may not accept payment or register participants
at programs. Registration and payment must be made through
the NISRA office.
7. The Registration Form is designed to provide all medical and
personal information necessary for the instructor to provide a
safe experience. Please complete the form thoroughly.
Credits and Refunds
Credits and refunds must be requested three business days
prior to the start of the program. The cost of the program
minus a $5.00 processing fee will be refunded. No credits
or refunds will be issued if tickets have been purchased or
supplies bought and there is no one on the waiting list to
take the spot. Credits or refunds will be not be issued after
the second week of the program, except for medical or
unavoidable circumstances only (ex., job transfer, moving,
etc.). Proof of the reason may be required. A prorated credit
or refund, minus a processing fee, will be issued.
Scholarships
Scholarships are available for weekly programs for those who
qualify due to financial hardship situations. Please call Kerri Ruddy
at the NISRA office for assistance.
46
Group Home Resident Fee Policy
In-district status will be granted for participants residing
in out-of-district group/sheltered homes or facilities that are
within 5 miles of NISRA’s member districts, if the
administrative headquarters of such group/sheltered homes or
facilities is located within NISRA’s member districts.
Township Information
We ask for your township on the Registration Form because area
townships annually give grants to NISRA. Listing your township
allows NISRA to provide the townships with participation statistics
to support their giving. If you are unsure of your township:
•check your voter registration card
•check your property tax bill
•call the county office or township office closest to your home
Procedure for Seizure Information
If your Registration Form indicates that the participant
experiences seizures, a completed Seizure Questionnaire
(included in this brochure), or equivalent seizure plan is required
for participation in NISRA programs. This document is kept on
file and distributed to the leaders of the programs for which
the registrant in enrolled. This will enable staff to provide the
desired level of care in the event of a seizure during a NISRA
program. Once each year you will be asked to review & update
your plan if necessary. If you have any questions about this
procedure, please contact the NISRA office.
Fitness Waiver for Fitness Programs
Due to the physical nature of NISRA’s fitness programs, the
circumstances at some facilities, and the exertion that participants
may undertake, NISRA requires a fitness waiver prior to
participation. The form is included in this brochure. The clearance to
participate will be valid for one year from the date on which it was
signed by the participant’s physician.

READ CAREFULLY.
Please read this form carefully and be aware that in signing up and participating in NISRA programs, you will be waiving and releasing all claims for
injuries arising out of these programs that you or the other named participant might sustain. The terms “I”, “me”, and “my” also refer to parents or guardians as well as
participants in the programs. In registering for these programs, you are agreeing as follows:
As a participant in these programs, I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury, and I agree to assume the full risk of any
injuries, damages or loss which I may sustain as a result of participation in any manner, in any and all activities connected with or associated with such activities and involve
substantial risks of injury.
I agree to waive and relinquish any and all claims I may have as a result of participating in these programs against NISRA, any and all other participating or
cooperating governmental units, any and all independent contractors, officers, agents, servants, and employees of the governmental bodies and independent contractors,
and any and all other persons and entities of whatever nature that might be directly or indirectly liable for any injuries that I might sustain while participating in these
programs.
I do hereby fully release and discharge NISRA and the other released parties from any and all claims for injuries, damages or loss which I may have or which
may accrue to me on account of my participation in these programs.
I further agree to indemnify, hold harmless and defend NISRA and any and all other parties, from any and all claims resulting from injuries, damages and losses
sustained by anyone, and arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with my conduct and the activities of these programs.
I further understand and agree that the terms such as “participation”, and “activities”, referred to in this Agreement, include all exercises and physical
movements of any nature while I am participating in these programs and further include the provision of or failure to provide proper instructions or supervision, the use
and adjustment of any and all machinery, equipment, and apparatus, and anything related to my use of the services, facilities, or premises involved in these programs, and
transportation to and from any events.
I understand the nature of these programs for which I am registering and have read and fully understand this Waiver, Release and Hold Harmless Agreement.
I further understand that any advisements or warnings of the particular risks of these programs that I subsequently receive will be incorporated by reference into and
become a part of the Agreement.
In case of emergency, I give my permission for the participant to receive any first aid, transportation or medical attention that may be required.

program & registration information
Programs by Age & Ability Level
Program Policies
Most programs listed in this brochure are offered according to age
groups and a suggested ability level or disability classification. This
information is given to assist with choosing the most satisfying and
appropriate program for the particpant. In many cases, programs
are geared toward “all abilities” and the staff will divide the
participants into appropriate subgroups within the activities.
1. Participants must be picked up at the designated end of
the program. Late pick-up creates additional costs and potential
delays getting to another program. NISRA staff will notify the
office of continual late pick-ups and a fine will be assessed.
2. Programs may be cancelled due to inclement weather. When
a program is cancelled, a make-up date will be arranged if
possible, or a credit or refund issued.
3. When participants of varying ages and ability levels are in
the same program, NISRA will group them appropriately.
4. NISRA provides an approximate 1:4 staff-to-participant
ratio. If the participant requires a closer ratio, please indicate the
reason on the Registration Form.
5. If a participant will be absent, please notify the NISRA
office.
6. If the participant is able to walk or ride a bike home, the
parent/guardian must submit notice granting permission, in
writing, to the NISRA office prior to the start of the program.
7. If someone other than the participant’s parent/guardian will
be picking him/her up after a program, a note must be sent for
the staff. Staff will not allow a participant to leave with another
person without written notice.
8. When arriving to, or departing from a program, please
check-in with the staff before you leave or take the participant.
9. If staff observe that it appears unsafe to release a
participant to the person picking him/her up after a program, the
staff will call a supervisor to determine what other transportation
alternatives may be possible.
10. Although NISRA realizes that inappropriate behavior may
occur in programs, the NISRA Director holds the right to suspend
participation if hazardous, disruptive or destructive behavior
persists. Participants may be held liable for
deliberate destruction of equipment or facilities.
11. While NISRA staff will assist participants with their belongings
at programs, NISRA cannot be responsible for lost or stolen
property. Participants should not bring valuables to programs.
12. Consumption of alcohol is not permitted at any NISRA
program (this includes adults, ages 21 & older).

emotional nature. It also includes Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,

NISRA’s Values
NISRA’s staff dedicate themselves to providing fun, skill-building,
life-enriching programs that fulfill our mission. We strongly
believe that 5 core values define who we are & what you can
expect from us: Fun, Professional, Compassionate, Trustworthy,
and Innovative. If at any time you feel that NISRA or its staff
have not lived up to these values, please contact Brian Shahinian,
Executive Director, at 815-459-0737.
Satisfaction Guaranteed
One of our goals is to provide you with the highest quality
recreation programs and services possible, therefore we
guarantee your complete satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with
a program, we invite you to try the class again at no charge, or
we’ll grant credit toward another program or issue a full refund.
Please contact the NISRA office by the mid-point of the session so
that we have an opportunity to address your concerns.
Recorded Message for Program Changes
We record a message on our phone system on days when the
weather or other factors force a change in the program schedule.
Call the NISRA office and dial 300.
Inclusion Services...
How about a general recreation program?
We understand that not every person with a disability needs
a NISRA program. NISRA provides assistance to our member
park districts and recreation departments to include residents
with disabilities in their programs. Types of support may include
staff training, adapted equipment, sign language assistance or
a program aide. Register for your home district program and for
more information, call the NISRA office.

NISRA Transportation
Can’t make it, or running late to your
pick-up location?
If you have registered for transportation with a NISRA program
and are unable to attend or are running late, we have a
procedure for communicating with you. The staff/driver will wait
for 5 minutes & then call your home & cell phones to try to get
in touch with you. We can wait a maximum of 10 minutes before
we must leave for the other pick-up points and/or the program.
Booster Seats
In January 2004 the changes to the Illinois Vehicle Code Child
Protection Act went into effect. Children under the age of 8 must
be secured in an appropriate child restraint system (child safety
seat).
Booster seats may be needed in a few NISRA vehicles based
upon the child’s age, weight and height. NISRA does its best to
avoid scheduling these vehicles for programs with young children
registered. Please indicate on the registration form if a booster
seat will be used.

For programs with transportation, the pick-up and drop-off
locations are listed in each program’s description. Please
choose your preferred location and indicate it on your
Registration Form.

programs using the same transportation location!
