Individual E-Waiver Form

Please have EVERY paddler on your team sign this E-Waiver Form. Team contacts will be sent an email for each waiver signed. 

Individual E-Waiver

Team Captains/Coaches/Contacts: Please have every paddler/caller/tiller sign this E-Waiver form. Paddlers who will paddle on multiple teams (e.g., Mixed and Women's) will select BOTH teams. All signed waivers will be added to a Google Sheet and the team contact will receive an email containing the link to your team's Google sheet. When your entire roster has signed the E-Waiver, let us know. There is no need to send us anything, as we can print your team's roster from the Google Sheet. 

Paddlers/Tillers/Callers: If paddling on multiple teams (e.g., Mixed and Women's), select BOTH teams from the drop-down menu. If you do NOT see your team in the list, please go to the Contact Us page and send us a message with your name and team name.
