GOUCHER AQUATIC CENTER

PARTICIPANT RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND

HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT

In consideration for receiving permission to participate in the aquatics program and use the aquatics facility at

Goucher College, I acknowledge and agree to the following:

I have been informed and understand that certain risks may be involved in any swimming program. These risks

include musculoskeletal pain, soreness, spinal injuries and cardiopulmonary signs (e.g., elevated heart rate, labored

breathing, light-headedness). I understand that swimming and aquatic related activities are responsible for

approximately 7,000 deaths annually. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in the United States

for individuals aged 0 - 45 years, second only to automobile accidents. Permanent paralysis, brain damage,

disabling injuries and/or death can and have resulted from participation in aquatic related activities. I understand

these risks and declare myself to be physically sound and/or to have medical approval from a physician to

participate in the aquatics program and use the Goucher aquatic facilities.

In addition, I agree to the following:

1. I RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE Goucher College, its Board of

Trustees, officers, servants, agents, employees, representatives, volunteers, successors and assigns

(hereinafter “Releasees”) from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, lawsuits, causes of action

and/or judgments whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that

may be sustained by me, or to any property belonging to me, while engaging in Goucher’s aquatics

programs or using Goucher’s aquatics facilities, or while in, or upon the premises where the activities are

being conducted, REGARDLESS WHETHER SUCH LOSS IS CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE

OF THE RELEASEES or otherwise and regardless whether such liability arises in tort, contract, strict

liability, or otherwise.

2. I further hereby AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE RELEASEES from any

loss, liability, damage, or costs, including court costs and attorneys’ fees, that they may incur due to my

participation in said activities, WHETHER CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or

otherwise.

3. It is my express intent that this Waiver and Hold Harmless Agreement shall bind the members of my family

and spouse, if I am alive, and my heirs, assigns and personal representative, if I am deceased, and shall be

deemed as a RELEASE, WAIVER, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE the above-named

Releasees. I hereby further agree that this Waiver of Liability and Hold Harmless Agreement shall be

construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland and that if any part of this release is

determined to be illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with any law governing this Agreement, the validity

of the remaining portions shall not be affected thereby.

IN SIGNING THIS RELEASE, I ACKNOWLEDGE AND REPRESENT THAT I HAVE READ THE

FOREGOING WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT; understand it and sign it

voluntarily as my own free act and deed; no oral representations, statements or inducements apart from the

foregoing written agreement have been made; I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and fully competent; and I

execute this Release for full, adequate and complete consideration fully intending to be bound by same.

THIS IS A RELEASE OF LEGAL RIGHTS
