Starting Unicycle Club at School

Does anybody have any websites or good information that they know about unicycling that will help my vice principal at school that we need a unicycle club. He said no the first time I asked him and I think it is because he doesn’t know anything about the sport. I am trying to compile a lot of information and maybe some videos (like this one http://http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/i_video/main500251.shtml?id=2509370n ) that will convince him it is safe and healthy. I have some information so far, I just don’t think it is enough… Thanks!

one of the main things is that kids at your school have an intrest in it too…
no one rides at my school or for the matter of fact almost no one rides in our town…
so get a bunch of kids to go up to your principal…propose ideas and things that would happen in your club…
Unless you get a teacher to get in on it at some schools the club wont work either…

i had 43 people that wanted to join the club

EDIT: and a teacher that seemed somewhat excited

then you should proly be able to do it if your principal will let you…
be nice about the whole thing though…

I think that it is awesome that you are trying to start a unicycle club at your school. Last week I started one at my college. First of all, don’t give up. Agree to be safe and maybe give your vp a list of rules you will follow: helmets etc. to make him feel better about it.
This site might help :http://www.unicycleclub.com/ along with this school site which offers unicycling: http://www.seattleschools.org/schools/pathfinder/Lou%20Cutler.html

Good Luck!!!

There was a school in CT that used to have unicycling, roller-skating and other fun activities, originally organized by the school’s principal if I remember correctly! I don’t remember where it was, but the name of the school was Stratfield. Maybe you can get in touch with someone there and see if any of that is still going on. They actually had a unicycle and a roller skate as part of the school’s logo (in the late 80s)!
