I, the parent or legal guardian who is identified below, desire to have my child participate in the Bittersweet Swimming & Tennis Association (BSTA) Swim Team Program, and that I am fully aware that participation in any swimming activity including a swim team carries with it the possibility and risk of relatively minor injuries to very serious injury and may even include the risk of death.
In full recognition and appreciation of the dangers and risks inherent in such activities, and in consideration of having my child participate in this swim team program, I, on behalf of myself and my child, do hereby waive, release, and forever discharge BSTA, its members, officers, agents and employees, from and against any and all claims, demands, action or causes of action for costs, expenses or damages to personal property, personal injury, or death, which could result from participation in these activities. I understand and admit that my child's participation in the BSTA Swim Team Program is voluntary. I understand that this waiver also includes and covers any injury, which could result during the transportation of my child to and/or from the various locations where the swim team may practice or compete.
I affirm that my child is in good health. I further declare that my child is physically fit and capable to participate in such activities. I also understand that this document is intended by me to act as a waiver for me, as well as my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns. I acknowledge that I have read and understand this entire document and had sufficient time to review it with the third party of my choosing.
