I plan to hold my own classes. Would I give each and every participant paperwork to fill out at the time of the class?
This will be my first time holding my own group classes. I'm covered with the insurance I need. I just need to know about paperwork (eg. Contract Forms, Par-Q Forms etc). How would I have them go about doing the paperwork? Would I have them fill them out on site at the time of the class or a day ahead? What would you recommend?
Great question and congratulations on your first group class! What specific type of group class, age, location, size, cross train, weight bearing, etc. will you be instructing?
Not knowing this, I would always lean towards safety and have all the paperwork you deem necessary for each class/client you teach/train ahead of time.
Wissh You Great Success!
I wish you the very best.
Make sure everyone is aware of safety and what they are signing!
Good luck with your class.
For my mommy and me classes which are conducted regularly and anyone is welcome to attend, I have everyone complete a liability waiver, modified policy form, modified health history and emergency contact sheet. I show up 15minutes prior to class to have new participants complete their paperwork. I have all participants complete the paperwork each year as things may change. If there are any questions, I have all their forms filed alphabetically and can pull them up at a moments notice.
Good luck with your class!
And I agree with Jocelyn, have your students provide an update each year in case their history has changed.
