PART III – ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RISK AND INSURANCE STATEMENT
I have reviewed the individual eligibility rules and I am aware that with the participation in sports comes the risk of injury to my child/ward. I understand that the requirements of risk warning and informed consent, apply to all athletes in all programs. Parental informed consent is required for minor athletes. I understand that all possible precautions are taken to insure that all athletic activities at Calvary Road Christian School are conducted by mature and qualified personnel in a safe and responsible manner. However, anytime an individual is physically active, especially in a competitive program, there is a possibility of trauma. I further understand that, because of the nature of some of the activities in the athletic program, regardless of the high degree of supervision, there is potential for accidental injury. I recognize these risks and agree to allow my child to participate in these activities. I sign this athletic application having thoroughly read the statements above and I give my permission for my child to participate in the athletic program.
