By submitting this form, I hereby certify that I am physically fit and of proper health to participate in outrigger canoe training, competition, and events.
I acknowledge that the aforementioned activities are physically strenuous from neuromuscular, cardiovascular and aerobic perspectives and that sudden unexpected injury or death may occur from diagnosed or undiagnosed conditions I may have, and that the Club and its members tailor training sessions in such a way that high physiological demands are placed on paddlers of all levels.
I further acknowledge that the aforementioned activities are inherently risky due to the nature of the medium where they are practiced (bodies of water, both sheltered and unsheltered) and of the equipment used. While the Club and its members have taken and take steps to diminish inherent risks, the demands of the sport require that training and competitive events be undertaken in conditions i.e. surf, waves, high winds, among others) regularly.
I agree to wear a properly fitting PFD at all times paddling on Whakaraupō / Lyttelton Harbour and that I acknowledge and understand that I am responsible for any risks and harm to myself that I may encounter as a result of paddling with Te Waka Pounamu Outrigger Canoe Club.
