you understand that you are assuming the inherent risk of the activities.

The chance of an injury occurring can be reduced by carefully following instructions at all times while engaged in
the activity.

The York Catholic District School Board does not provide accidental death, disability, dismemberment or medical
expense insurance on behalf of the pupils participating in this activity. If you do not have this type of coverage, you
