DECLARATION AND COMMITMENT OF THE PARTICIPANT
Assumption of Risks
I am aware of the nature of underwater hockey, underwater rugby and finswimming and the type of events which are organized by the Canadian Underwater Games Association (CUGA) and its associated clubs, which involve certain dangerous conditions.
I therefore acknowledge and accept that in taking part in the activities, I expose myself to risks of serious injuries or even death.
I acknowledge and accept that I am fully aware of those serious risks and dangers and, notwithstanding said knowledge, I have elected to participate in underwater hockey, underwater rugby, and/or finswimming.
CUGA Code Of Conduct *** NEW ***
CUGA is committed to advancing a sports environment and culture that is respectful, inclusive, and supportive of club and player development. All participants can expect to play, practice, compete, and interact in a safe environment.
I acknowledge and accept the terms and conditions of the Code of Conduct, and as a member of CUGA, will abide by them.
Waiver of Recourse for Property Damage
In addition to assuming the risks, I hereby waive any recourse for property damage that I may sustain during my participation in one or several of the activities sanctioned by the Canadian Underwater Games Association (CUGA) regardless of whether said property damages are caused by an accident, through the fault or negligence of a third party or the Club. The present waiver inures to the benefit of the Canadian Underwater Games Association (CUGA), its executive, directors, volunteers, members, as well as the promoters, participants, event and facility operators and owners, officials, rescue personnel, sponsors, or any other person or organization having participated in the production of the activity, its setting up or its promotion.
I HAVE SIGNED THIS DECLARATION FREELY AND KNOWINGLY.
