I will abide by the rules and by-laws of the Balmain Para-Rowing Program Inc., and will follow the reasonable directions of the board, including to pay all subscriptions and debts to the Program as they fall due.
I have read, understand and will abide by the Program’s member protection and OH&S policies, as amended and placed on its website and/or noticeboard from time to time.
Except as disclosed on this form, I do not suffer from any condition, injury or ailment that would prevent me from fully participating in rowing activities, or put me at risk of injury or harm if I were to participate in any rowing related activities. I will immediately notify the Program in writing if this changes.
I understand rowing is a dangerous sport that contains inherent risks – I have read and understand the FISA safety manual* (“FISA Minimum Guidelines for the Safe Practice of Rowing”) and NSW Maritime Code of Conduct for Rowing and Sculling Shells, and I agree to comply with these documents.
I confirm I can swim 100 metres in rowing clothes, or, if I have any difficulty in doing so, that and the reason(s) for any difficulty are fully set out in this form.
I understand that the Balmain Para Rowing Program Inc. does not provide personal accident insurance cover for me. This insurance cover is provided by Rowing NSW for its members, as detailed on their website. I understand that to obtain this insurance cover I must register as a member of Rowing NSW, and of a club / school in NSW or another state or territory within Australia.
In consideration for the Program’s acceptance of my membership, I, including any heirs, executors and administrators (or any other person claiming through or under me), hereby release from, indemnify and waive any and all claim, right, cause of action or suit (including for negligence and gross negligence) (‘Claim’) against the Balmain Para-Rowing Program Inc., its agents, employees, volunteers, coaches, office-bearers or members of the board, or any other person or entity acting with the authority of any of those entities, arising out of or related to any injury, loss of life or damage to property which I may suffer or sustain, or cause to any third party, as a result (either directly or indirectly) of my membership with, or participation in any activity arranged by Balmain Para-Rowing Program Inc.
I understand this release, waiver and indemnity involves a release of significant legal rights and nevertheless agree to be bound by its terms.
