Westwind School Division Athletic Acknowledgement of Risk and Informed Consent Form
Please submit this form for each individual student.

This form must be completed prior to tryouts for any sport within the school or involvement with extracurricular school athletic activity. By submitting this form, you acknowledge that your child may participate in Westwind School Division extracurricular athletic activities or teams (including tryouts).

Athletics are an important part of the Westwind School Division culture. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics programs. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of the athletic programs at our schools. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.

Athletic activities involve certain risk, dangers and hazards to the participants. These may include, but are not limited to, personal injury, death, property damage, expense and other loss, delay or inconvenience, and trip or event cancellation or curtailment. A complete and detailed list of activity-specific risks is available at http://www.westwind.ab.ca/download/361785

During off-site activities, authorized staff of my child's school, Westwind School Division, supervisory adults, as well as employees of other agencies associated with this activity will endeavour to instruct, protect, and care for the well-being of my child, including making decisions regarding the medical care of my child.

Students will be expected to uphold the behavioural expectations of Westwind School Division students as in any other school endeavour as outlined in Administrative Procedure 345 STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT available at https://www.westwind.ab.ca/board-of-trustees/procedures/4093. My child's failure to abide by behavioural expectations could result in his/her removal from the activity without refund.

The principal reserves the right to postpone, terminate or cancel an activity at any time and with little notice if the activity can no longer be conducted in a safe and secure manner. I recognize that I may not receive all or any of the money I had thus far invested and accept the loss without expecting reimbursement from the School or Division.

As a parent/guardian, I will ensure my child is appropriately prepared and has the necessary equipment for the activity.

As a parent of a student/athlete representing the school and Westwind School Division, it is expected that you
role-model behaviour conducive to good sportsmanship and behaviour that will not embarrass the school, your student, or yourself. By indicating below, after reading, you agree to abide by these standards of behaviour, including the Westwind Spectator Code of Conduct, available at https://www.westwind.ab.ca/about-us/athletics.

I am aware that every parent has the right to deny his/her child’s participation in an off-site activity and that this activity is not a prerequisite for the completion of any required course of study.

This form remains in force while your child is a student at the school you select below. If your student's information changes please notify the school office.
