I also fully release MSWA (Inc.) for liability for any negligent or tortious act or omission, breach of duty, breach of contract or breach of statutory duty on the part of MSWA or its agents, contractors, representatives, officers or employees.

If the entrant is under 18, I certify that I am the parent / legal guardian and she / he has my consent to participate in the Event.

I acknowledge that there will be others swimming in the lane, therefore I agree to, and will conform to the Pool Etiquette listed below:

  • Stay as far to the left in the lane as possible.
  • If stopping at the wall, please make sure you are not in the middle as swimmers behind you may want to turn.
  • If a swimmer is behind you trying to pass, please make sure you stop at the wall or slow to let them pass.
  • If you are trying to pass a swimmer please do not constantly grab at their feed. Once should be enough.
  • When entering the water on your part of the relay, please be careful of other swimmers.

  • Only one additional team member is allowed to wait in the water (at the end of the lane) for their turn to swim.
