I am in good health and can participate in the McCarter Community Club Extended Swim Program. I acknowledge that swimming is dangerous and voluntarily assume the risks of bodily injury, which may be incurred as a result of participating in the McCarter Community Club Extended Swim Program. I am fully aware and thoroughly informed of the hazards of swimming: further, I have read and fully understand the following:
Swimming is a physical activity involving heavy exertion. A swimmer must be in good general health, free from cardiovascular and respiratory disease and have good exercise tolerance. Even momentary impairment of consciousness while swimming may be fatal.
While swimming the body is subject to a variety of influences that may become potentially hazardous. Some of these hazards include, but are not limited to drowning, eye injury, head injury and a variety of other bodily injuries such as broken bones.
There are other water related problems that include, but are not limited to reduced visibility and cold temperature when swimming.
When swimming a person may be subjected to bodily injury from carelessness due to activity related to equipment handling or from just being present at the swimming site.
The Extended Swim member must realize that he/she is ultimately responsible for his/her own safety, as well as the safety of his/her family members. It is clearly the extended swim members’ responsibility to refuse to swim and to refuse to allow family members to swim, if, in his/her judgment, conditions are unsafe.
