MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT WAIVER/ DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY

The risk of injury from the activities involved in this program is significant. Particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, but the risk of serious injury does exist. I participate in the sport of Wrestling because it is physically and mentally challenging. I know that there are physical risks and hazards inherent in Wrestling, as there are in most sports.

I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, and assume full responsibility for my/my child's participation; and, additional risks associated with my travel to and from events, and associated with non-competitive activities related to events and other activities.

I AGREE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MYSELF.  I am participating voluntarily in Wrestling.   I agree that there are risks in Wrestling. By participating voluntarily in Wrestling, I am exposed to these risks and hazards.  I agree to accept them and be responsible for any injury or other loss which I might receive while participating in Wrestling.

The Kingston & Area Olympic Wrestling Club, and its coaching staff, do not assume liability for any injuries incurred while at any scheduled practice or wrestling related event, or on the way to or from any said event or practice. Regiopolis Notre Dame Catholic High School does not assume liability for injuries incurred while practicing at their facility, which is our club practice location at this time.

The athlete, by participating in any wrestling related activity, does so at his/her own risk. The athlete and his/her parents assume full responsibility for any damages or injuries which may occur during participation in club activities and hereby fully and forever exonerate and discharge the Kingston & Area Olympic Wrestling Club, its coaching staff, and Regiopolis Notre Dame Catholic High School from claims, demands, rights of action or causes of action, present or future, whether the same be known, anticipated or unanticipated, resulting from or arising out of the athlete’s participation in the program and in use of the facilities.

Please check here to acknowledge your agreement.

KWC ATHLETES CODE OF CONDUCT, RULES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

As a member of Kingston and Area Olympic Wrestling Club all athletes are expected to:

- Shower at Regi directly after practice or as soon as possible when the athlete arrives home. This is to avoid the athlete getting ringworm and any other skin infection. The showers/change rooms are located right off the gym.

- Abide by the rules and regulations of the Ontario Amateur Wrestling Association, the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association, or the rules of any host venue that we as a club are visiting.

 - Arrive approx. 10 minutes before practice, with appropriate clean attire, ready to learn and work hard.

- Respect team mates, coaches, parents as well as opponents and treat them in a courteous manner.

- Inform the coach of any injuries or skin conditions as soon as possible. You will not be allowed to practice or compete if you have an infectious/contagious disease. Once the skin has returned to normal, or you have been cleared by a doctor, you will be able to return to the mats.

- Respect any facility that we are training or competing in. This includes hotel accommodations while away at tournaments. Theft or vandalism will not be tolerated.

- Use appropriate language at practice or at any wrestling related event.

- When traveling, all athletes are expected to stay in their assigned rooms.  There will be appropriate chaperons for athletes under the age of 18.  All athletes must be in their assigned rooms by 10 pm without exception.  Any violation of this policy will result in the athlete being sent home at his/her own expense.

- Parents of wrestlers that are under 12 years of age (Grades 8 and under) are responsible for transportation and accommodation while away at tournaments, and for supervision during the event.

- The consumption of alcohol or drugs while representing our club is strictly forbidden.

- All athletes should be prepared to compete to the best of their ability; representing themselves, their families, and our club with pride.

- The KWC does not advocate any behavior contrary to fair play. Examples include: fighting, poor sportsmanship, or arguing with officials/coaches.

Defiance of any of the above rules/policies can result in an immediate suspension by any coaching staff present at that time. In the case of an overnight trip, the athlete can be sent home at his/her own expense or the expense of the parent/guardian if under the age of 18.

Ultimately, the Head Coach reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership to any athlete who fails to comply with the KWC rules, policies, and procedures. In the case of an appeal by the athlete or his/her parent/guardian, our executive will review the details of the suspension before the final decision is made.

Wrestling is a very physical and technical sport. With this in mind, it is at the coaches’ discretion if an athlete is ready for competition. Attendance, physical preparedness, commitment, and attitude will dictate who is eligible for competitions. 

By agreeing below, both the athlete and parent/guardian (if under 18) acknowledge that they have read and accept the KWC Athletes Code of Conduct, Rules, Policies, and Procedures.

BINGO TRAINING

To keep our registration fees as low as possible, we require one parent/relative from each family to do volunteer bingo training and to do approximately 8 hours of bingo volunteering a year. This is only 1-3 Sunday shifts a year.

Our bingos at this time are in 2 hour time slots one Sunday per month (Time slots are 12-2pm, 2-4pm, and then 4-6pm) The most each person can do is 4 hours per shift. The money raised from bingo funding goes directly toward facility costs, coaching expenses while away at tournaments, Clinics, tournament vehicle rentals, and most importantly it allows wrestling to be affordable for all families.

If you are not bingo qualified, please visit the Treasure Chest Bingo Association training page to complete the training: http://www.tcba-kingston.ca/training. Once finished, we will contact you to arrange a shadow shift with another trained member of Kingston Wrestling Club.
