A Message from the Board about Mandatory Waivers

Dear Members,

Although we are excited to open the swim club on June 22, 2020, there is an issue that must be addressed, and we need the cooperation of all of our members to address it. We all know how potentially serious and contagious the virus that causes Covid-19 is. And in spite of the precautions we are taking, someone may still contract the disease, or believe that they have contracted the disease at the club. The officers and trustees of a non-profit corporation like the Teaneck Swim Club can under some circumstances be held personally liable for failures on the part of the corporation. And while the club does carry insurance to protect us, the policy may not protect us in this case.

Therefore we are asking the members to sign a waiver promising not to sue the officers and trustees, or for that matter any individuals including the employees, other members or guests, because it is not fair to expose the officers, trustees, employees and other individuals to legal liability when we are all trying to do our best under difficult circumstances. Other clubs are asking for waivers which waive liability against the club as well. And while we obviously don’t want anyone to sue the club, we are also trying not to overreach.

Frankly, without this waiver, many of the trustees are unwilling to continue as trustees and will resign their posts, which will make it difficult for the club to operate. Therefore no members or guests will be admitted to the club grounds this season without first signing a waiver and acknowledgement of the special COVID-19 rules. The instructions for completing the waivers are detailed below. We are doing our best to make this process as easy for our members as we can.

The Board of Trustees of the Teaneck Swim Club

HOW TO COMPLETE WAIVERS FOR MEMBERS
To view, download or print the waiver document that everyone must sign prior to the first admittance, and the various documents referred to in the waiver, click on the applicable links
Waiver document
Rules of the Swim Club developed in agreement with Teaneck Health Department
Governor Murphy’s Executive Order #153
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines
The New Jersey Department of Health COVID-19 Outdoor Pool Standards

To complete the waivers from the comfort of your home, you can download and print one copy of the waiver for each person 18 or over that is part of your membership, and each person must write their name, sign and date their copy of the document. In addition, one parent or guardian must include the second page listing the full names of children on the membership, and other required information, and sign and date it. You may then scan the documents with a computer or smartphone, and attach the documents to an email with the subject: "Waivers for Member # xxx", including your member number which can be found on your card, and send it to membership@teaneckswimclub.org.

Anyone who can't do this by email will be accommodated by appointment.

If you are doing this in person by appointment, please be sure to bring your membership cards with you, as a sticker will be placed on each card covered by a waiver. If you don't have cards, a document will be provided that you will need when your cards are created by the staff. If you have not paid your dues yet, you may bring a check with you, together with an application for membership or a renewal form which can be found near the bottom of this web page. Late fees are waived.

GUEST POLICY AND GUEST WAIVERS FOR 2020
Beginning on Wednesday, July 1st guests may be admitted except on Sundays, provided that waivers for the guests are completed and emailed by 8PM the night before according to these instructions. Admission of guests on Sundays will be evaluated after the club has experienced a Sunday without guests and had an opportunity to evaluate the feasibility of having guests on Sundays.

The guest, or for children under 18, the parent of the guest, must be provided with the waiver document and the other documents listed below, either by the member or by accessing these documents themselves.
Waiver document for guests
Rules of the Swim Club developed in agreement with Teaneck Health Department
Governor Murphy’s Executive Order #153
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines
The New Jersey Department of Health COVID-19 Outdoor Pool Standards

The waiver document itself must be downloaded and printed, one copy for each person 18 or over that will be a guest on a given day, and the guest must write their name legibly, as well as the member's member #, and sign and date their copy of the document themselves in their own handwriting. No computer generated signatures, please. Only the first page of the document is required for adult guests who are not accompanied by any of their own children. For children, one copy of the waiver for the parent and for multiple children of the same parent can be used. The parent must fill out both pages of the waiver document completely and legibly, except for the member attestation section at the bottom of the second page, and sign and date their copy of the document themselves in their own handwriting, regardless of whether the parent will also be a guest or not. The member attestation, which is only required for guests that are minor children must be completed by the member, after the parent has completed the rest, and signed in the member's own handwriting. If the parent and the member are not able to be together to do this, it may require emailing or otherwise delivering the portion of the waiver completed by the parent to the member, who will then have to print it, complete the attestation and sign it. The member or the guest may then scan the documents with a computer or smartphone (no low res photos), and attach the documents to an email with the subject: "Waivers for Guest of Member # xxx", including the member number which can be found on your card, and send it to membership@teaneckswimclub.org. If the guest is sending the email, the guest should cc the member on the email. At entry to the club, the checkin staff will have a record of valid guest waivers by member number that were received before the 8PM deadline.

In general, these procedures must be completed separately prior to each day that the guest will be brought to the club. However, for grandchildren that will be frequent guests the parent may use the "frequent guest" check box on the form and a single waiver will cover the entire season.

WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW
It has been a difficult time for everyone and we hope that the Swim Club will be a great experience this summer. However, the danger of COVID 19 is far from being over and we must all continue to do everything possible to make the Swim Club a safe environment for all of us.

To view, download or print the list of rules that everyone must follow in order for the Swim Club to remain open this specific season click here. These rules are strict and must be adhered to. Everyone must understand that these additional rules were created for OUR benefit so that we ALL remain safe and that the Swim Club is permitted to remain open. As you may know, many other facilities are not opening this season because they are unable to adhere to sufficient safety requirements. Through the hard work of our Manager, with the assistance of the Trustees, we have created protocols that will allow us to open this season.

We hope that you, as the members of the Swim Club, review the rules and assist us in implementing these procedures. We look forward to a great season. We hope that next year COVID 19 will be history and that we can relax many of these rules.

DUES AND LATE FEES
Late fees are waived this season. Like every year, resignations by bonded members must have been made in writing by May 22nd in order to be put on the waiting list for bond reimbursement. Any new resignations will apply to the 2021 season and do not relieve members from paying 2020 dues.

WANT TO SKIP A SEASON?
Beginning with the 2020 season, membership can be frozen for a $200 fee. This means that a member can skip a year of dues payment and club usage without resigning by paying a $200 freeze fee. If dues have already been paid but it is before opening day, dues will not be refunded, but the balance after the $200 freeze fee will be credited to the dues for the following year. You must notify the club in writing or by email, and if you have not already paid dues, you must remit the $200 fee. Your bond cannot be used as a source of the fee. We have been flexible this year with late requests, but July 15th will be the final cutoff, and only if you have not already been to the club.

WHAT HAPPENS TO DUES IF WE OPEN LATE
Since the club is opening late there will be a pro-rata refund or credit towards next year's dues, on request, as was previous posted. We will do our best to reduce missed pool days by extending the season a bit. A fair refund or credit will be based on the number of pool days missed, once we know what that number of days is. The club will certainly appreciate it if members who can afford it do not request refunds. There will be no refunds for members who resign after May 22nd.

INCENTIVE FOR BRINGING IN NEW MEMBERS
Please help the club to increase membership. You may have seen the flyer which promises new members a $25 discount, and no application fee or bond. The club is also offering an incentive to existing paid up members for bringing in a new member. When a new member you refer joins, you get a book of guest passes, and if the new member renews in 2021, you get a $50 discount on your 2021 dues.
