Spring Programs
Virginia Boating Safety Education Classroom Course: Free
In 2007, the Virginia General Assembly enacted a law to establish a boating safety education compliance requirement. This requirement will be phased in over the next several years; and by 2016, all operators of PWCs (personal watercraft such as jet skis, Sea Doos, and Wave Runners) and operators of motorboats with a motor of 10 horsepower or greater will be required to have a boating safety education course completion card on board when operating a PWC or motorboat. As of July 1, 2011, PWC operators 50 years of age and younger and motorboat operators 20 years of age and younger must show proof that they have completed a boating safety course. On July 1, 2012, PWC operators of any age and motorboat operators 30 years of age and younger must show proof that they have completed a boating safety course.  This course fulfills this requirement.  Register online through the title link.

A beneficial daily practice embraced by both young and old alike, its benefits include increased flexibility and more joint mobility, increased lung capacity, and greater leg and hip strength with an enhanced sense of balance. Class occurs Thursday nights, 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., at the Sedwick Racquetball Club on Warren Street in the Town of Orange. This program is ongoing. To participate, stop by OCPR and purchase a Tai Chi Punch Card. Each card costs $40 and entitles you to four Tai Chi classes.
