February 20, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

Are you working in a physical fitness facility or a club membership for sports aficionados? If racquetball is not yet provided in your facility, you could start the belief of introducing it to members and catering to existing fanatics and players of the ballgame. You would surely not go wrong with it. Racquetball has always been among the popular ballgames around except that handball and tennis.

Do you mean to introduce the game in your facility? Here are the top rules of thumb that could present you with practical and effective ideas to do so.

1. Go on with your plans if your facility is under a manager who's very understanding of the special and specific needs of startup programs. The manager should be ready to accept allow certain considerations to create the court for racquetball and arrange concessions for program dates and times, especially because there can be conflicts with the interest of several existing members.

2. In advance, make sure your facility has a membership base that contains a significant number of individuals who are curious about playing racquetball. If the members are already happy with their personal fitness pursuits like weights, tennis, dance, aerobic exercises, and so on, you might find it difficult to introduce and startup a new sports program like racquetball.

3. It would help if the facility is allowing non-members to participate even at a nominal additional fee. Members could take the opportunity to bring with them friends and members of the family who may be truly curious about playing the ballgame.

4. Convince other staff instructors to take initial efforts to supply programs available schedules of your prospective member-participants.

5. Strive to know your facility's membership. Determine the members seasonal traits. Adults may be more inclined to play golf at some season, kids might be occupied at high school, and others may not like to take too much physical activities at certain months of the year.

6. Promote your racquetball program. It would help if you would post signs and posters in the facility area that has heavy traffic. Make flyers and distribute them to members. You may ask the help of several other facility staff in pushing the program to members. You may also use the facility's program guides and newsletters as a way to reach more members.

7. Facilitate free clinics on times and days that the program would be provided ( in any case during initial days). During the free clinic, get members names and contact facts that you may make use of to get in touch with them to promote your racquetball program further.

8. Use the mother network of youth programs. Mums of those kids often interact with one another to discuss their childrens pursuits.

9. Try to be flexible. Remember that a good number of the best and most popular programs in your facility now were actually accidental. If registration for your program is lackluster, don't lose hope and keep your determination.

10. Adapt a software program plan that facilities growth.

When you aim to introduce racquetball joined of the ballgame programs in your facility, remember not to surpass or step on toes of the facility's other departments. Keep an open relationship with other key facility staff along with members.
