A: YES you do! DOWNLOAD and PRINT the waiver for you and your parent or legal guardian to read through ahead of time. You MUST have this hold harmless waiver signed by one of them, in person, at the beginning of the class. If “in person” is not possible, their signature must be notarized on this form and brought with you to class. This can be done at most banks for a very small fee.
