Thank you for your interest in starting a Team RWB chapter in a new location!
We're currently focused on growing in cities with populations large enough to support veteran outreach efforts along with having the resources necessary to implement a successful chapter. Usually, we focus on cities with a population of 100K or more, but we’re flexible! If you live in a city that you think meets this criteria, please take a few minutes to read the material below, answer the brief questions at the end of this document and submit your application to us. It will be reviewed by a Team RWB leader and you will receive a response within 14 days.
If the city you are interested in does not meet that criteria, we're really sorry! We're trying to focus our growth in order to keep the quality of our programs high - please check back, as our organization is growing quickly and our criteria may change in the future.
A Team RWB chapter is comprised of its members, and a small leadership team as detailed below:
+ Chapter Captain – Leads the chapter + Veteran Outreach – Grows veteran involvement + Community Outreach – Grows community involvement + Athletic Director – Organizes and conducts physical activities + Social Director – Organizes and conducts social activities
Note: Not all leadership positions must be filled for a Team RWB chapter to form, but we ask that you work towards building a complete leadership team.
To be recognized as a Team RWB chapter, the following requirements must be met and maintained:
+ Must be responsive to inquiries and welcome all new signups within 48 hours + Maintain an active local social media presence + Calendar of athletic/social events developed, posted, and communicated to membership. + Manage local membership roster + Host consistent Team RWB activities (should grow in scope/size with the community. • Exercise events (Runs, Crossfit, Yoga, etc.); held weekly or bi-weekly • Team Social Events; held at least quarterly • Community Service Event; held at least quarterly + Track activities and submit a monthly status report + Conduct active community and Veteran outreach
There are a few small requirements that we ask of any person who would like to start the process of establishing a Team RWB community in their location:
+ Have no pending geographic relocations planned in the next 6 months. + Be willing to commit 4-6 hours per week of personal time to this endeavor. + Be willing and comfortable with managing a small budget to fund Team RWB activities. + Most importantly, be comfortable with being in a LEADERSHIP position – this is the single most crucial facet to starting a Team RWB chapter. + Finally, be prepared for the immense amounts of personal satisfaction and fulfillment in their life that will come from being involved with Team RWB and starting a chapter!
