ISC Member Participation Consent Agreement 2018/19
The By-Laws of ISC provide that:
5. (2) A Regular Member is either:
- In the case of a swimmer under age 18, who is currently enrolled in the Society’s programs and for whom current Annual Membership Fees have been paid, any parent or guardian of the swimmer, or
- In the case of a swimmer who has attained age 18, is currently enrolled in the Society’s program and who has paid current Annual Membership Fees, the swimmer. The swimmer may elect to appoint their parent or guardian to act on their behalf by notifying the Secretary, in writing, of this decision.
The Island Swimming Club (ISC) strives to ensure a safe environment for its swimmers. However, members should understand that, without neglect on the part of the swimmer or ISC, injuries can occur because of the inherent nature of the activity.
The member authorizes the swimmer to participate in ISC activities including local and out-of-town meets and releases ISC, its Board of Directors, coaches and chaperones from any and all claims which may arise by reason of the swimmer’s participation in ISC activities, including any and all claims which may arise due to bodily injury or illness.
The member authorizes ISC, its Board of Directors, coaches, chaperones and/or any representative of ISC to authorize such medical attention as may be deemed necessary and appropriate in the circumstances should a swimmer suffer an injury or illness while participating in ISC activities and agrees to pay for all medical and any other related expenses incurred in such an event.
The member releases ISC, its Board of Directors, coaches, chaperones and/or any representative of ISC from any claim arising from the medical treatment a swimmer receives while participating in ISC activities.
The member agrees that all members and swimmers will comply with all ISC policies and any communicated expectations as established by ISC, its Board of Directors, coaches, chaperones and/or any representative of ISC. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action. Any costs incurred by reason of the termination of a swimmer’s participation in any ISC activities and/or as a result of the swimmer being sent home will be the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian.
The member agrees that all swimmers will be subject to an Athlete Code of Conduct as reviewed with their coach and must comply with the Code of Conduct or face possible disciplinary action. In addition, the member agrees that, as applicable, it will comply with the ISC Parent Code of Conduct and the ISC Volunteer Code of Conduct.
