Informed Consent

By choosing to register for City of Selkirk programs, you understand that certain risks are inherent to participation in sports and recreation activities. Those that participate in programming agree to the following:

  • I/we agree to self-screen prior to attending the program. We ask anyone experiencing cold/flu or other illness symptoms to stay home. This helps keep our staff and participants safe and healthy. 
  • I/we acknowledge that certain risks of injury are inherent to participation in sports and recreational activities. These types of injuries may be minor or serious and may result from one’s actions or in-actions of others or a combination of both.
  • I/we acknowledge that the rules and regulations are designed for the safety and protection of participants, and we hereby commit to abiding by them
  • I/we understand that certain activities require a minimum level of fitness and health (physical, mental and emotional) and that each person has a different capacity of participating in these activities.
  • I/we agree to allow my child to participate in off-campus field trips that may require the use of public transportation.
  • I/we agree that the City of Selkirk and/or its employees, servants or agents shall not be liable for any injury to any person or loss or damage to personal property arising from, or in any way resulting from, my or my child’s participation in these activities, unless such injury, loss or damage is caused solely by the negligence of the City or its employees, servants, or agents while acting.
  • I/we agree that we have read and understood the above Informed Consent Agreement in its entirety and hereby consent to participate acknowledging all the foregoing.
