Agreement with another type of school


I am working with a local Jiu Jitsu/MMA/Wrestling coach to use part of my space in my box for him to run his classes. He will be paid through me as an independent contractor with the terms we've decided on and all money coming through my ZenPlanner. I was wondering if anyone has a similar setup, and if so, could I look at your business agreement? I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Also, anything I should watch out for besides the following:
Who does what when a new client signs up
Sharing members and their payments
ending the contract, or moving on.
All partners/coaches/agents involved and their roles.

Thank you in advance!

Re: Agreement with another type of school

In addition to what you've identified, I would also make sure that he has enough insurance (to your satisfaction), that you are named as an additional insured on his policy, and that you have a hold-harmless and indemnification agreement.

In short - make sure that your attorney looks at all of the documents before you sign anything with him. Last thing you want is some kid who gets a broken arm/leg/neck/etc. to sue you, and you lose your gym.

Also - will YOUR insurance allow this set-up?
