Participation in sport involves inherent risk of injury. You consider your child capable of taking part in the activities on offer. You consent that, in the event of illness/accident, any necessary treatment can be administered to your child, which may include the use of anesthetics. You also understand that whilst the coaches will take every precaution to ensure that accidents do not happen, they cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by your child.
Could you please ensure that your daughter arrives on time and is collected promptly from training and matches. A walking bus is available from the Club House to the training grounds, see website for details. In the event that your daughter does not arrive in time or chooses not to join the walking bus, it is your responsibility to accompany her to the training grounds. If you choose to let your daughter walk unaccompanied or do not supervise her during drop off and pick up, you do so entirely at your own risk. If you have any concerns at any time about any aspect of your child's welfare, please contact our Welfare Officer.
We do not collect medical information on our members. It is the responsibility of parents to provide their children with any medical equipment that they might need, such as inhalers or EpiPens and to make our coaches aware on an ongoing basis of any support that your child might need. By bringing your child to a training, or a match, you are confirming that your child is fit to play. If you have any concerns about the medical well-being of your child, you should stay and watch during training and matches.
The Cobham Lacrosse Club may wish to use group pictures that include your child for promotional purposes. These photographs will be treated in confidence and held in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. No names or personal details will be published without your permission.
You will be notified via email by 11 o'clock on the morning in question should it be necessary to cancel a training session or match due to weather or unsafe pitch conditions.
The ELA require that you register your daughter as playing lacrosse for insurance purposes. We are unable to do this on your behalf and take no responsibility for any failure to do so. See the ELA's registration portal for details. We also expect all members, parents and spectators to comply with the ELA's Code of Conduct Policy.
If fees remain outstanding for more than three weeks from the start of the season, girls will not be able to train or play matches until the fees are settled. In the event of genuine payment difficulties, bursaries will be considered.
Information on how the Club is operated is set out on this website and in the Club Handbook, and therefore should be read in conjunction with each other.
