Update (4/9/14):  We've added the requirement that youth group leaders should keep a copy of this form on file and bring it with them to all subsequent events as proof at registration.

All participants under age 18 are required to have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver for them at all TOC events.  But what can you do if your parent/guardian is not able to accompany you or your youth group to the event?   Well, you or your adult group leader can do the following:

  1. Print a copy of our Waiver and Permission to Participate form, which can be downloaded from our Documents, Guides, and Forms page (look for it in the "For Orienteers" section).
  2. Have your parent or legal guardian complete and sign the form.
  3. Your group leader should make a copy for their records and bring it to all future orienteering events as proof that it has been signed.
  4. Bring the original completed form with you to your first orienteering event of the season or scan the form and send it by e-mail to the event meet director.

The good news is that once completed and signed the permission is good until the end of July!
