Once schools begin in the fall I have a plan (working on details now) to reach out to a few schools that are walking distance from my house and offer to teach a fitness class to the teachers/faculty/parents once a week. My mom is a teacher in a different state and loved when an instructor came in on Wednesdays immediately after school ended to teach so I think it will go over well.
Has anyone had experience with this? My main questions are if I need a separate liability waiver/release than the basic form I found on here since it will be on their property (I have a few friends who are lawyers I will ask but wanted to check with the fitness community as well), also if there is a specific person to initially reach out to; PE teacher, community involvement head, office admin, etc.
Thanks for any advice/ideas!
You might have to add or change some things in your waiver/liability forms (add the name of the school(s) if needed) so you will be covered. Talking to a lawyer is always the best way to go about this. As for contact, I would start with a call at the school and find out who might be the best person to talk to about your program. The principal might be the one to go after and then he/she will let you know who to contact after that. Also, since your mom is a teacher she might be able to give you a few pointers. I know in your city things can be a bit more complicated due to the nature of bureaucracy and other rules and regulations they might have in place (in order to reach the right people). I hope this helps.
