SWIMMER & SPECTATOR SAFETY
ACKNOWLEDGMENT & WAIVER

In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way with EAGLE RIDGE SOARING EAGLES, related events and activities, the undersigned acknowledges, appreciates, and agrees that:

    • For safety reasons my child must be able to swim 25 yards without assistance. No flotation device, no adult assistance.

    • If deemed necessary, my child will be put into a "probationary" period, where they cannot swim in a swim meet and cannot participate in practice without 1-on-1 assistance from an adult, until they can pass an evaluation that will allow them to SAFELY participate in practices and Swim Meets.

    • If requested, I may be asked to be in the pool during practices to ensure the safety of my child - while receiving instruction so that the coaches can focus on the team/age group as a whole and does not have to worry about the safety of a single swimmer. This would be required only if my swimmer is on "probation".

    • If requested, that I will enroll in 1-on-1 swim lessons with one of the swim team coaches to help improve my child's swimming ability and confidence so that they may safely participate in practices and Swim Meets without assistance. Swim lessons are made available to Swim Team members at a discounted rate.

    • If my swimmer is placed on "probation", at any point in time I can request that my child be re-evaluated to see if they are able to swim 25 yards without assistance. At that time, it will be deemed by the head swim coach if the child is allowed to be in the pool without an adult and can participate in upcoming Swim Meets.

    • The risk to have contact with individuals, who have been exposed to and/or have been diagnosed with one or more communicable diseases, including but not limited to COVID-19 or other medical conditions, diseases, or maladies does exist, and it is impossible to eliminate the risk that I could be exposed to and/or become infected through contact with or close proximity with an individual with a communicable disease;

    • I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or others and assume all full responsibility for my participation.

    • I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation. If, however, I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of the nearest official immediately; and

  • I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS EAGLE RIDGE SOARING EAGLES, their officers, officials, agents and/or employees, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of the premises used to conduct the event ("Releasees"), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, ILLNESS, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.
