During the year, photographs of members may be taken during competitions, banquets, clinics, awards and special presentations or other occasions. Your consent is required or parental/guardian consent if the athlete is under the age of majority. Media coverage is occasionally done throughout the competition season in order to promote the sport of Baton Twirling and to acknowledge club and athlete's accomplishments. This means publishing of member's names and club associations in the local newspapers and on the CBTF website. On occasion the media will attend competitions including radio, television, newspaper etc. At these times, it will be the parents' responsibility to provide parental consent to the specific media outlets.
