I understand and acknowledge that water sports activities have inherent risks and dangers that no amount of care, caution or expertise can eliminate, including without limitation, the potential for serious bodily injury, permanent disability, paralysis and loss of life.
I hereby Release, Waive and Covenant Not to Sue, and further agree to Indemnify, Defend and Hold Harmless the following parties: Capital City Rowing, Inc., its employees, officers, directors, administrators, agents, coaches, instructors, members, other participants, sponsoring agencies all of which are hereinafter referred to as Released Parties, from any and all liability for any and all claims, demands, losses, or damages on account of injury, including death, or damage to property, caused or alleged to be caused by risks inherent in the water sports activity undertaken by my child.
I further agree that I will not sue or make a claim on behalf of myself or my child against the Released Parties for damages or other losses sustained as a result of my child’s participation in the water sports activity.
I further agree to indemnify and hold Released Parties harmless from all claims, judgments and cost, including attorney’s fees, incurred in connection with any action brought as a result of my child’s participation in the water sports activity.
This Agreement is specifically intended to comply with Section 744.301 Florida Statutes and is intended to operate as a waiver of liability to the fullest extent allowed by law on the date on which it is signed.
