Starting a College Crossfit

I am starting a Crossfit at Queens College at the City University of New York. We are running into some problems with insurance, liability and convincing the athletic staff of the validity of crossfit. Has anyone had a similar experience?

Yea I'm running into the same problems. How far are you along the process? We need to be seen as a legitimate competitive activity, and our department bases a lot of that on whether there is an intercollegiate competitive division. What are you telling them?

Contact and Kathy or Lisa will be able to put you in contact with some folks who have navigated the same streams and emerged on the other bank.

Good luck!
