Community park and recreation departments across the country offer tremendous opportunity for individuals to engage in professionally-led physical activity. Although some departments have a plethora of fitness programming available, others offer very little. Fitness professionals are well-positioned to enhance the program offerings in departments across the country. This webinar, led by ACE Federal Advocacy Manager Sheila Franklin, will teach you the ins and outs of working with your local park and recreation department to increase and/or enhance their fitness programming.

You will learn:

  • How to identify and describe opportunities available to fitness professionals through park and recreation departments
  • How to utilize tips and tricks learned in the webinar to streamline working with park and recreation departments
  • How to advocate for professionally-led physical activity in community settings through park and recreation departments

Some good ideas presented!

This was a reasonable introduction to working with parks and recreation departments. There was a statement about the benefits of exercise for postpartum women that I though was really badly/awkwardly worded. I would recommend editing that section to be less weird or re-recording this entire topic again.
