Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

Swimfinity Swim School (“SSS”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, SSS cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending swimming lessons with SSS could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending swimming lessons with SSS  and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at SSS may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, SSS employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at SSS or participation in swimming lessons with SSS. On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless SSS, its employees, agents, and representatives, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of SSS, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in swimming lessons with SSS. 

Pool Rules at SSS location or Home Lessons for Summer 2020 will include but may not be limited to the following:

  • All swimmers participating in swimming lessons at SSS location, at home lessons or any other designated location for swimming lessons as enrolled with SSS will be expected to have their temperature taken by their swim instructor or any other designated person hired by SSS prior to entering the teaching pool. Any swimmers registering over 100 degrees Fahrenheit will be asked to leave the pool and a make-up lesson will NOT be scheduled. Please call prior to your lessons if you, your child or any family members show any signs of fever or symptoms related to COVID-19. If this occurs at a home lesson the instructor will leave for the day and ALL lessons will be canceled and not rescheduled. Please understand we take the health of our instructors very seriously as we have an obligation to remain healthy for all of our swimmers and their families. 
  • Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any prizes or provide a “surprise bucket” this year at our locations in order to limit exposure to any items related to our lessons at SSS. 
  • At our location in Bellville we ask that all parents stay in their cars while the lessons are being held. The instructor will wave you down when the lesson is complete so you can come to the steps for your child. If your child is under the age of 3 - you may remain in the pool deck if you wish.
  • When arriving at the Bellville location please remain in your car until the family before you has left the pool deck and is either in their car or packing their belongings in preparation to leave. 
  • We truly appreciate your acknowledgement & support during this difficult time to help ensure the safety, good health & well being of all of our swimmers, their families and our instructors.
