47 How to Register
To purchase your 2016 Aquatic Pass at the resident rate, you MUST bring a current utility bill, with your
name and address on it AND photo identification, as proof of Mentor residency. This is to ensure that only
Mentor residents are given the resident rate. Mentor residents are only those people who live within the
corporate limits of the City of Mentor, which is NOT the entire Mentor School District or 44060 zip code.
Kirtland and Kirtland Hills residents pay resident rates because of reciprocal agreements with the City of
Mentor (see page 47), however, they must also show a current utility bill with name and address on it AND
photo identification, as proof of residency in one of those cities. Please note that this agreement is no
longer in effect with the City of Mentor-on-the-Lake.
Season Pool Passes are photo ID cards; passes can not be issued without a photograph. Photos will be
taken when you purchase your pass. If a member of the family can not be present, he/she may return at
any time to be photographed and have his/her pass printed. Children must be photographed annually.
Online Pass Sales
If you purchased a pass last year, you can renew your pool passes online. Simply visit
www.cityofmentor.com/play, click Register Online, login and click Passes and Memberships.
Once your payment has been processed, your existing pass will be valid and may be used once your
transaction is approved. Please note that if you have moved or if you need make changes to the existing
pass type (4 family members instead of 5), you will need to purchase your pass in person.

Other Helpful Information
• Pre-registration is required for all swimming classes. Registration
for swim lessons begins with summer registration on Monday,
April 4 for residents and Tuesday, April 5 for nonresidents, online,
by mail and in person. Registration is held throughout the
summer on a first-come, first served basis. If the class you are
requesting is filled, ask to be placed on a waiting list. Additional
sections are frequently added.
• Register online and be the first in line! Free online registration
is available 24/7.
• Swimmers will be tested the first day of lessons to determine
if they are in the proper class. If you have a Red Cross card
showing you have passed a class previously, please bring it with
you to the first class. Instructors reserve the right to determine
your child’s level of performance and place them accordingly.
Instructors will move your child to an appropriate class at the
same time and same pool if space in other classes allows. Please
note that children do not usually pass a swim level after one
session. Some levels are very comprehensive and advanced skills
take time to master.
• Detailed information on lesson levels, as well as downloadable
Red Cross skill checklists and information are available
at www.cityofmentor.com/play/aquatics/learn-to-swim.
• Choose classes carefully. Because of the great demand for
swim instruction, there will be no refunds given. Transfers will be
granted on a case-by-case basis and only if space is available.
SAVE MONEY WITH OUR NEW
SWIM & SAVE CARDS!
• There will be no make-up lessons for the Learn-to-Swim
programs. Classes are held every day. Safety lessons, which are
an important part of the Learn-to-Swim curriculum, take place
on the pool deck on inclement weather days.
For $25, you’ll receive 5 admissions to any city pool!
Swim & Save cards are available at the Recreation Department
and all three city pools. They make great gifts and any one can
purchase them!

DISCOVER SCUBA
Ages 10+
Okay, let’s say the idea of scuba diving intrigues you — but you’re not certain
you want to commit to an entire certification course. No problem. PADI and Just
Add Water have the perfect opportunity for you. It’s called Discover Scuba.
If you have a swimsuit, a towel and a few hours free, you can find yourself
swimming weightless under water, in the safe, shallow confines of our heated
swimming pool, playing frisbee under water, taking underwater photos of
your friends and family members, and getting an introduction to some of the
fundamental skills of scuba diving under the guidance and supervision of one
of our experienced instructors. Class meets at Just Add Water, 36200 Euclid Ave,
Willoughby and ends at the pool!

BEGINNING SCUBA: OPEN WATER
CERTIFICATION COURSE
Ages 10+
Mentor Recreation contracts with Just Add Water to offer anyone over the age
of 10 the chance to learn to scuba dive through this Beginning Scuba course.
The skills learned in these classes can lead to a lifelong enjoyment of this
explorative sport, make great vacation experiences better or even discover the
Great Lakes and local quarries!
The only requirement here is that you be able to swim 200 yards (no time limit,
any stroke). Or, as an alternative, you can swim 300 yards with mask, fins and
snorkel. You also need to be able to tread water, drown proof or float in water
too deep to stand for ten minutes. Rarely do we find anyone who has difficulty
with this.
Children ages 12 to 14 can qualify for Junior certification, which requires they
dive with an adult until age 15. Kids ages 10 and 11 can also learn, must have a
parent present during all course activities, and meet other requirements as well.
Learning to dive has never been easier! and will take only two weekends. Part
1 - Friday night, you’ll cover the academic portion at Just Add Water, then spend
Saturday and Sunday mornings at Garfield Pool practicing confined-water
training which will prepare you for the Open Water Dives and earning your
certification. More time at Just Add Water on Saturday and Sunday afternoons
will fully prepare you for your certification. Open Water Dive dates to take the
certification test are scheduled separately with Just Add Water. There is an
additional fee for course materials. Register by calling Just Add Water at (440)

in Northeast Ohio. Whether your child is just getting introduced to the game
of baseball or has been playing for a while, Indians Youth Baseball Camps will
develop and improve upon the same basic fundamentals that Indians players
work on each and every day – hitting, throwing, fielding, and base-running.
Throughout the week, the qualified and professional coaching staff emphasizes
the importance of keeping the focus on the process and the things that we
can control: our Attitude, Concentration, and Effort, and encourages each
participant to ‘A-C-E the Day!’ All campers receive an Indians jersey and hat,
Indians drawstring backpack, camp workbook and a voucher for two tickets to
see the Indians play on Indians Youth Baseball Camp Reunion Day (August 21).
Please note: ALL REGISTRATION FOR THIS CAMP MUST BE COMPLETED AT

between what he taught in his leadership courses (Organizational and
Leadership Development Consultant) and his efforts training and hunting
with birds of prey. The Ohio School of Falconry is the meeting of these two
worlds. With each program that he facilitates, Dorrian strives to help individuals
understand and appreciate not only birds of prey and the sport of falconry, but
also the important roles that trust plays in the development of healthy working
relationships, whether it is with humans….or hawks! Instructor will provide all
necessary equipment/students should refrain from wearing anything made of
real/faux fur.

PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINING
YOGA
Yoga is an ancient system of philosophy and practices. The yoga classes are a
mixture of gentle stretches combined with traditional yoga postures. The sense of
wellness acquired through practice is caused by easing muscle tension, massaging
internal organs, and improving flexibility of the joints. The challenge of this
practice lies in the coordination of breath with movement, which encourages
quieting and relaxing the mind, focus and balance. Please bring a yoga mat and a
firm cushion; wear loose or stretchy clothes for yoga classes. There is a class break
Jun 24 - 30 and August 25 - 31. There is no class May 7, May 30 or July 4.

LEARN-TO-SKATE
Ice skating is not only one of America’s best winter sports, it’s also one of the most
accessible thanks to the Mentor Ice Arena! Ice skating helps build muscle, is lowimpact and easy on joints, and can boost balance, flexibility, quickness and agility.
All of these benefits are perfect for young children building small and large motor
skills and even better for adults interested in burning calories and staying fit!
At Mentor Ice Arena, ice skating lessons are progressive in nature, meaning you
start with the basics and build on fundamental skills. For those interested in playing
hockey or learning to figure skate, classes are available to teach those skills too!
Where To Begin?
We’ve designed programs that are right for all ages and all interests. Children
age 3 - 5 start with the Tot program. Children 6 and up start with the Basic
program and adults and teens ages 12 & up start with the Adult Basic program.
What Do I Need To Get Started?
All participants in our Learn-to-Skate program should wear loose, comfortable
clothing including a jacket or heavy sweatshirt, jeans, snow pants or layered
athletic pants, and warm socks. Those under age 10 must wear a helmet, and
gloves are encouraged as well as the average temperature in the rink is 55
degrees.
Because we want you to practice what you’re learning, all persons registered in
the Learn-to-Skate program receive a punch card for free open skate sessions
good during the 7 weeks of lessons. If you need to rent skates during lessons,
you receive our $1 skate rental special.

We’ll start from the beginning as we learn to sit and stand up with skates on –

another trip/class/program within the same season to avoid
the administrative fee. Students assume risk of change in

Mentor Residency
Mentor Residents live within the corporate limits of the City

name and address on it along with photo identification. Not
all 44060 zip codes are Mentor resident addresses. Mentor
School District and the City of Mentor corporate limits are
not the same. Mentor residents receive priority in registration
and discounted fees.
Kirtland and Kirtland Hills Residents
Mentor has a reciprocal agreement with Kirtland and
Kirtland Hills that allows the residents of these communities
to register for programs and pay the resident fee. Residents in
these communities must wait until nonresident registration
to register. Proof or residency is a current utility bill with
name and address on it and a photo identification. Please
note that Mentor’s reciprocal agreement with Mentor-onthe-Lake expired December 1, 2013. Please direct questions
regarding this change to the City of Mentor-on-the-Lake.

changes in course schedules. Classes taught in any of the
