DASA 2024 Youth Membership/Waiver

Both a parent/guardian signature and the youth’s signature are required on this form, to be completed after both have read, and agreed to all below. By signing the form and checking all terms and conditions check-boxes, you waive DASA of all liability, claims, assumption of risk and indemnity regarding any claims.
DASA Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks & Indemnity Agreement
We hereby release and discharge the City of Lethbridge and the Dragonboat Association of Southern Alberta(herein referred to as “DASA”), its agents, coaches, directors, employees, members, officers, sponsors and volunteers (herein collectively referred to as “personnel”) from all claims, demands, actions, judgements, and executions which the undersigned’s parents, guardians, heirs, successors, executors, administrators, representatives, or assigns may have, or claim to have for any and/or all personal injuries, known and unknown, and injuries to property, real or personal, caused by or arising out of, the participation in the activity of dragon boating not limited to dry land training (e.g. physical workouts), pool practices, on waterpractices, and/or racing at any venue.
We, the below-signed, fully understand, acknowledge, and agree that this sport activity has inherent risks involved, and we are fully aware of the nature of these risks. Notwithstanding these risks, we hereby indemnify and waive any and all rights, claims, prospective causes of action, cause of action, etc. as heretofore enumerated, and I hereby assume any and all risk associated with my participation in this sporting activity. We understand that paddling on lakes, reservoirs and rivers involve certain dangers, not all of which can be listed here. Among the more obvious and frequent are:
• Exposure to variable extremes in weather that may cause injury due to heat or cold, and which may prevent or force route and itinerary changes.
• Contact with and possible immersion in cold water for undetermined periods, leading to hypothermia and possible suffocation.
• Exposure to capsizing and sinking, rocks, trees, bridge abutments, log jams, rope entanglement, current patterns, and other possible sources of “in water” injury and entrapment.
• Unfamiliar terrain and routes where dragon boats could become separated from the party.
• Transport by public or private motor vehicle.
• Travel in remote locations with poor communications and inability to get rescue or medical assistance easily or quickly.
We are not relying on any oral or written statements, if any, made by DASA and its personnel, whether in brochure, advertisements or in individual conversations, to lead me to become involved in this program on any basis other than my assumptions of the risks involved. We accept all the risks, and the possibility of death, personal injury, property damage, and loss, resulting from my involvement with practice and racing events. We acknowledge that DASA personnel have been available to fully explain the various hazards and risks associated with this activity. In addition, we agree to read the DASA Safety Procedures on the DASA website
–> Documentation.
COVID Waiver, Release and Indemnity: We are aware that COVID-19 is a worldwide pandemic and is extremely contagious. DASA has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; but cannot guarantee that the youth will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, participating could increase my risk of contracting COVID-19 and the youth may be exposed to, or infected by, COVID-19 and such exposure may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, or death. We agree To FOREVER RELEASE AND INDEMNIFY DASA from any action related to becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 as a result of, or from, any action, omission or negligence of myself or others, including but not limited to DASA.
We, the below signed, have read this waiver/release carefully before signing, and confirm that we understand the terms & conditions. We execute it voluntarily and with full knowledge of its significance. We understand that it will be binding not only by us, but also by heirs, next of kin, personal representatives, and assigns. We agree that, even though I, my child or charge, or organization may not live/be in Alberta, the laws of the province of Alberta and the City of Lethbridge by-laws govern this waiver of liability and release of claims and will be enforceable in any court of law.
