CATEGORY A GROUPS:

To qualify as a Category A for free use of the gym all of the following items must be included:

  •  A copy of the flyer that will be sent home with each student. The cost of the copies is your responsibility. Please work with Mrs. Hill and or Mr. Smock in regards to the flyers being sent home. As the announcements are not sent to everyone the flyer is required to be sent home. A copy of this flyer will also be kept on hand so that it may be posted and/or handed out to any new students moving in to the district.

  • A Certificate of Liability Insurance must be on file with the school. Most insurance agents will know what the school requires. Many choose to use their homeowner's policy. This is something you will wish to discuss with your agent. The Certificate may be faxed to the school at 563-886-2341.

  • A letter or email from the appropriate varsity coach stating that you are working with them regarding knowledge of skills.

 

Failure to include all of the following items will result in your group being classified as a Category C and result in a $20 per hour rental fee charge. Bills will be sent out after December 10 for November charges.
