Terms & Conditions
ENROLMENT OBLIGATIONS OF COSSUM SWIM SCHOOLS
I further represent and warrant that to the best of my knowledge and belief the student is physically and mentally able to participate in such activities with my approval. A licensed physician has reviewed the health information set forth in the student’s application, and information, or an independent medical examination, which would preclude the applicant from participation. I understand that if the applicant has Downs Syndrome, they cannot participate in activities that result in hyperextension, radical flexion or instability. I am aware that activities for which this radiological examination is required are Butterfly Stroke and Diving Starts in swimming.
In permitting the student to take part in lessons, I am specifically granting my permission for CSS to use the students name, voice and words in television, radio, film, newspaper, magazine and other media and in form for the purposes and communication of CSS.
If a medical emergency should arise during any such activity at a time when I am not personally present so as to be consulted regarding the students care, I hereby authorise CSS employees on my behalf to take whatever measures are necessary to insure that the student is provided with any emergency medical treatment including hospitalisation, which they deem advisable in order to protect the students health and well being.
If a non-emergency medical situation should arise during the students participation during such activities at a time when I am not personally present so as to be consulted regarding the students care, I hereby authorise CSS/Swimming Teachers personnel to act on my behalf and within the limits of their training and certification to provide the same type of non-prescription medication that I could be expected to provide if I were present. This is limited to basic first aid treatment.
I, the parent/guardian/student of the specified person, have read and fully understand the provision of the above release and I have explained them, along with all other contents of this from to that person. I hereby agree that I, and the student will be bound thereby and I shall indemnify CSS and employees against any liability resulting from disaffirmation thereof by the student or me.
