Waiver

All Club Sport Athletes must read and digitally sign the Club Sports Waiver if you want to participate in Club Sports. Once you have signed the waiver, it is valid throughout the academic school year. If you participate on more than one Club Sport team, you must complete a separate waiver for each sport. The waiver serves as a roster for the club.

You will need your UserID and password to access the waiver form. Participants under the age of 18 should have their parent or guardian sign it and send it back to the student to be submitted. The hardcopy PDF of the waiver, that needs to be signed by a guardian, can be downloaded from the link on the website. Anyone who does not complete the waiver may not participate on a GW Club Sport team!

Events Must be Registered

All Club Sport events home and away must be registered so that the Club Sport Office can efficiently implement logistics for you and so we can export events to the Vice Provost and relevant offices. Submit the Club Sport Event Registration Form: https://forms.gle/uEwQHDUbWQhDdQMs9
