Waiver Explanation

Park Waiver Explanation
In 1994 the Hampshire Township Park District became a member of Park District Risk Management Agency (PDRMA), a self-insured pool with many members. As a loss prevention measure, that group has asked its members to require program participants to execute a release form. The Waiver, Release, and Hold Harmless Agreement is located underneath the Registration form in this brochure. Please read the form carefully, sign and submit it when you register for programs requiring a waiver. At the time of registration, or at the first program session, you may be presented with a sheet describing some of the particular risks involved in the activity for which you have registered. If so, that additional material will become a part of the Waiver, Release and Hold Harmless Agreement. A completed and signed waiver is required for most programs in the brochure. No one will be allowed to participate in most programs without a signed waiver accompanying a registration form. We want the individuals registered in our programs to be aware in advance that when they participate in certain activities, there is a natural element of risk or injury which each participant must assume. We do not carry medical or accident insurance for program participants. The cost of that type of insurance would make program fees prohibitive. Please review your own personal health insurance plan to be certain that you and your family have the proper coverage. The use of this form is one of our answers to the national liability insurance crisis and allows us to continue to offer high quality programs to the public at reasonable cost. If you have questions please call 847-683-2690. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
