By signing below I/We give permission for my son/daughter to participate in the Alexandria Youth Sports Program. I/We acknowledge that I/We must be a resident within the town limits of Alexandria, which includes the villages of Alexandria Bay, Plessis, Redwood, and the outskirts of LaFargeville. I/We acknowledge that if we live outside these limits we must contact our township for Youth Sporting Events regardless of the school my child attends. I/We acknowledge that if additional players are needed for an Alexandria team after all Alexandria youth have been given first preference then we will look outside to other townships which would then have to be done through a Waiver System between the townships. I/We also acknowledge that participation in these programs involves risk of injury and I assume the risk. I/We also acknowledge the Town of Alexandria will take responsibility for the costs of medical services for an injury that happens while my child is a player and/or participating in and Alexandria event.
I/We also hereby consent to the taking of my son/daughter’s picture while they are playing and participating in an Alexandria Sporting Event, and I also give permission for the pictures to be posted on the Town of Alexandria Youth Sports Page located on the town’s website at www.townofalexandria.org.
I have read and agree with the above information. Both parents signatures are required.
