Host Site Coordinators
Kansas Kids’ Fitness & Safety Day (KKFD) will be held on
May 2, 2014!
What is a Host Site?
Kansas Kids Fitness Day takes place at two flagship sites:
- on the lawn at Cedar Crest in Topeka and at
- the national historic site of Fort Larned on the Santa Fe Trail
However, KKFD would not be possible without the multiple regional and local events held across the state at various locations by various organizations and individuals. As the number of students attending KKFD continues to rise, we are continually looking for more sites to host an event. Host sites may regulate the number of students allowed to attend their site. Current host site attendance ranges from 100 to 2000 students per location. Host sites may be specific to a single school or school district or they may be regional allowing student from anywhere to attend. Educational materials are provided to each site for all attending students.
What are the responsibilities of a host site coordinator?
Should you decide to host an event, planning for your site would be flexible. As a host site coordinator you would need to confirm a location, determine the number of students invited to attend, organize the games and events, coordinate with the teachers and schools attending your site, find volunteers for the event day and contact vendors to provide services at your event. A step by step planning guide will be provided to you to assist you through the planning process. In addition, educational materials are provided to you for the students in attendance and t-shirts are provided to your site for volunteers.
The Kansas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (KAHPERD) will provide reimbursement to KAHPERD members who hold a Regional Kansas Kids’ Fitness and Fitness Day Host Sites for expenses incurred to support the event.
KAHPERD Members who hold an event receive:
Under 400 students – $200

600+ students - $400
Funds can be used to purchase equipment or supplies to run the event; funds CANNOT be used for transportation, staff or other paid help, or food. Please contact Janelle Robins-Gaede at 316-634-3928 or email@example.com for detail instructions on reimbursement.|
