Consent to Participate/Assumption of Risk

By clicking “I Agree” below, I agree as follows:

  1. As parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of the participating youth (the “Participant”), a minor child, I consent to the Participant’s participation in the sailing program of the Northport Youth Sailing School (“NYSS”), a not-for-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Michigan. I understand and agree that, even though NYSS sailing classes and related activities are supervised by certified sailing instructors, and despite reasonable precautions, there are still dangers and risks inherent to sailing and the NYSS sailing program, including injury to or death of participants. I, both individually and as parent(s) and/or guardian(s) of the above named minor, do release, discharge and indemnify NYSS, its employees, officers, teachers, volunteers, sponsors, donors, assistants and agents from any and all damages, claims, liabilities, demands, and causes of action, known or unknown, because of injury to or death of the above minor as a result of the above Participant’s participation in the NYSS sailing program, whether or not caused by the negligence of NYSS or its employees, assistants or other participants.


  1. I have carefully reviewed the written document titled “Northport Youth Sailing School Information For 2021 Participants Regarding Covid 19 Policies and Procedures.”  I agree that the Participant (and members of the Participant’s family and household) will comply with and meet those procedures and expectations. I understand and assume, both individually and on behalf of the Participant, the risk of possible exposure to the Covid 19 virus resulting from participation in the NYSS summer program and any related activities.


  1. I have carefully reviewed and understand the risks described in the CDC’s two-page “CDC Heads Up Parent Athlete Information Sheet.”


  1. Media Release.  I understand that participants are sometimes photographed and/or videotaped while attending NYSS, and that these images may appear on the NYSS website, and may also be reprinted by other groups (typically organizations / companies such as the Leelanau Township Community Foundation that provide financial support to NYSS).
