Yes folks, even our friendly little club is not immune to legalese. Normally you would review and accept this liability waiver, when completing your annual membership renewal. The waiver had been the same for several years… and then Covid happened. It was decided that, given the uncertainty with Covid, more specific language would be included in the waiver.

Please take a moment to read it through. After, please tick the “Accept” box, add your first and last name, phone number and “Submit”. We’ve tried to make this process as simple as possible and doing it this way will exempt you from having to sign the form at either a practice or class.

Thank you,

Your VBDS Board
