Team Documents & Rules
Sailors and Parents must sign and submit a series of forms and waiver every calendar year to participate on the team.

If you join the team in the Spring (or did not sail in the Fall) you will need to submit the all of the appropriate Forms and Waivers.
Questions about Forms and Waivers? Please contact the Coach: firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are the various documents and forms that need to be signed and turned to participate. They include all all the Rule and Expectations both Sailors and Parents are expected to follow.
SOME General Important Rules and Expectations:
Coaches are in charge at regattas, parents need to support coaches by making sure sailors are healthy, prepared, and have needs like food, warm drinks, etc met. Please refrain from "coaching" your or other sailors. Always let the coach know of any issues, especially but not limited to, safety, well being, etc. if it appears the Coach is not aware.
At least 1 chaperone needs to be present on site at regattas to assist Coach. Chaperones, not the Coach, need to coordinate this.
Coaches are NOT responsible for sailors post-racing activities even if they are still present. Chaperones are.
Coaches are NOT responsible for dictating Chaperone conduct, Chaperones need to hold themselves and each other to high, and acceptable standards for chaperoning youth. However, never hesitate to inform the Coach of any issue chaperone/sailor/or otherwise.
Never be alone with a sailor that is not yours. Always use the buddy system.
If you are carpooling to a regatta you are a chaperone.
If your sailor is at a regatta (and you are not attending) and has behavioral or misconduct issues you may be asked to come collect your sailor at your time and expense.
Review the Code of Conduct with your sailor!
