are authorised to act in loco parentis if necessary. I also give consent for Management and Staff of CDC
to give my child first aid and minor medical treatment. Please note that we would only be giving your

I confirm that the trainee will have a travel insurance policy covering winter sports including alpine ski
racing and race training for the duration of any trips booked with CDC. Insurance should cover personal
medical costs and repatriation, 3rd party accident cover and cancellation cover.
We strongly suggest having an EHIC insurance card to help cover any medical costs.
CDC staff may be able to assist in paying some medical costs up front but these should be reimbursed
as soon as possible.
I confirm that the trainee will wear a FIS certified for ski racing helmet with a code such as CEE1077, US
2040, ASTM F2040, SNELL S98 or RS98. It is the responsibility of the trainee to ensure the safety of the
helmet and that it is worn at all times when skiing.

CDC TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND INDEMNITY WAIVER
These booking terms (“ Booking Terms”) set out the terms and conditions applicable to all ski camps
(whether residential or non residential) (“ Camps”) provided by us, CDC Performance (“CDC”)
In this agreement, the term “CDC” refers to CDC Performance, its management, staff and employees. “Trainee”
and “participant” refers to the person participating in the camp. “Parent/s” means a parent or guardian, which is
someone with legal responsibility for a child. The term “adult” will mean a trainee on a camp or activity provided by
CDC aged 18 or over, and “child” will mean a trainee on a camp or activity provided by CDC aged under 18 years
old. “Skiing” shall include “skiing”, “cross county skiing” and “down hill ski racing”.
Bookings and Agreement (Contract)
These terms and conditions are applicable to both adult participants and children. In the case of a child
participant the terms will be signed by a parent or guardian will legal responsibility for the child.
Any application for participation of a child Trainee in a Camp must be made to CDC by the Trainee’s parent or
guardian. The completed Booking Form must be accompanied by the relevant deposit set out in the Camp
Details (“Deposit”). Upon receipt of the completed Booking Form and the Deposit, CDC will issue a
confirmation e-mail. Upon receipt of such e-mail, a contractually binding agreement (“Contract”) will be
created between you, (the parent/guardian named on the Booking Form) and CDC on the basis of these
Booking Terms, the Camp Details and the completed Booking Form.
The facilities at many of the locations used for Camps may not be suitable for Trainees with special needs.
CDC is also not equipped to deal with trainees with special needs. Most of these facilities are outside of our
control. Although CDC can accept bookings for most Trainees with special dietary requirements, the nature
of the training provided and the location of the Camps is such that unfortunately it may be difficult to
accommodate Trainees with special needs.
Bookings for Trainees who make their own travel and accommodation arrangements in and around the
Camp location (“Outliers”), will be accepted subject to availability of places.
Due to the complexities of organising and running the Camps, bookings will only be accepted by CDC for the
whole period of each Camp or for certain parts of each Camp (usually complete weeks), details of which
are set out in the Camp Details. Bookings may be accepted for periods of less than a complete week, but
payment must be made for the whole week or such other part of the Camp as may be referred to in the
Camp Details or agreed to in writing by CDC.
Payment of the remaining balance (“Balance”) must be made by the relevant date set out in the Camp
Details (usually 4 weeks before the start of the Camp) (“Final Payment Date”).
Cancellation and Refunds
Failure to pay in full by the Final Payment Date can result in automatic termination of the Contract (without
any requirement to notify you of this) and you will not be entitled to a refund of the Deposit.
Other than as described in paragraphs 10 and 13, if you cancel (terminate) the Contract prior to the start of the
Camp, regardless of the reason for such cancellation, you will not be entitled to a refund of the Deposit.
You will be entitled to a refund of 50 % of the Balance if you cancel up to 6 weeks prior to the start of the
Camp. If you cancel within 4 weeks prior to the start of the Camp, you will not be entitled to any refund.
You must provide CDC with a completed Medical Form prior to the Camp start date and if you fail to do so,
CDC shall be entitled to terminate the Contract and you will not receive any refund. If the Trainee has to
curtail participation in the Camp or has to withdraw whether due to sickness, injury or otherwise during the
Camp, no refund will be paid to you.
For each Camp, a minimum number of people are required to book to enable the Camp to take place. CDC will
assess whether the minimum number has been achieved and inform you as soon as reasonably
practicable (and usually not less than 4 weeks before departure) if it becomes necessary to cancel a Camp
for this reason. In the event of cancellation of a Camp for this reason, the Contract will simultaneously be
terminated and in such circumstances, CDC will refund all sums paid by you to CDC in respect of that
In the event of curtailment of a Camp or inability to ski during a Camp because of inclement weather or lack of
snow, you should note that you will not be entitled to any refund from CDC. You may in limited
circumstances, receive a partial refund from CDC where CDC has obtained a refund from the relevant
In the event of inclement weather or lack of snow during a Camp, CDC may use reasonable endeavours to resite
elements of the Camp, however this may result in extra costs which will be passed on to you. These
costs will need to be paid immediately on the day, or by the end of the Camp.
If it is necessary for CDC to cancel a Camp prior to the commencement of the Camp because of inclement
weather or lack of snow, CDC will endeavour to re-site the Camp. In the event that this results in extra
costs, these will be passed on to you. However, where the increase in costs payable by you is 10% or
more, you will have the right to terminate the Contract if you do so prior to the start of the Camp. If you do
so terminate, you will receive a full refund of all sums paid by you to CDC.
For the avoidance of doubt, you are entitled to a full or partial refund in the circumstances set out in Clauses
8,10,11 and 13 of these Booking Terms but in in no circumstances will compensation be payable to you
You must ensure that the Trainee has full medical insurance, comprehensive travel insurance and is
insured for ski racing and skiing off piste. We also strongly recommend that you take out cancellation
A trainee will only be allowed to travel and participate on the Camp if the medical information on the
booking form has been completed. In the case of a child participant, the medical consent must also be
signed by a parent.
You confirm that the information in the medical questionnaire is accurate and you have not omitted any
medical conditions that could affect yours, or the safety of anyone else on the camp.
You must inform CDC if there is any change to the details provided in the medical / health information.
The booking form contains a box about trainee’s medical history, and treatment and dietary requirements.
Trainees will be looked after in accordance with this information. Any outstanding medical or dental
treatment should be undertaken before joining if possible, with updated information given to CDC.
Accommodation and food will be monitored for any danger to health and safety. All aspects of the camp will be
monitored for the prevention of accidents, including the wearing of protective headgear, eyewear, clothing
and the use of sun screen.
Treatment for any infection or injury will be in-house in the first instance. The majority, if not all, members of
staff will have a First Aid qualification. When necessary local medical services will be utilised. Any incident,
and the action taken, will be recorded in an incident book.
All trainees must have comprehensive medical insurance cover to include cover for racing and race
training. Evidence of such cover must be available in the event of an emergency.
If the camp is taking part in Europe, the trainee should ensure that their EHIC card is available in
CDC will not be responsible for any lost equipment or kit belonging to or hired by Trainees. You must
ensure that the Trainee’s ski equipment is in full working order prior to the Camp. If you are hiring
equipment, you are responsible for the cost of hiring.
You must wear a FIS certified for ski racing helmet with a code such as CEE1077, US 2040, ASTM F2040,
SNELL S98 or RS98.
All Trainees must comply with the CDC Code of Conduct for Trainees set out below. If a Trainee’s behaviour is
such that in CDC’s reasonable opinion a Camp is at risk of being disrupted, another Trainee is
inconvenienced or adversely affected or CDC considers that the reputation of CDC has been or could be
prejudiced, the Trainee may be asked to leave the Camp. Similarly if the trainee breaches the code of
conduct, they may be asked to leave the camp and the contract cancelled.
If the Trainee is to be expelled from the Camp and is a child trainee, you will be informed and you will be
required to make immediate arrangements for the Trainee to travel home at your full expense. For the
avoidance of doubt, no refund or compensation will be paid to you and the cost of any other
accommodation and travel expenses will be your responsibility.
The basic principles are consideration and common sense. Any act borne of thoughtlessness or stupidity
may be considered a breach of good conduct.
The camp has a No Smoking policy, at any age, and a No Under Age Drinking policy. Contravention would be a
serious breach of good conduct.
For child participants on a camp, we cannot allow trainees to have a sexual relationship. In furtherance of
this rule girls rooms are off-limits to boys and vice versa. Contravention of this rule would be a serious
breach of good conduct. (NB Girls and boys may mix freely in common areas).
Any involvement with drugs would be considered a serious offence warranting expulsion.
The camps have a non-discrimination policy. Living in a community it is important to 'live and let live' and to be
tolerant of all types. Any discriminatory behaviour would be considered a breach of good conduct.
CDC abhors 'bullying' in any form. Any physical violence or mental intimidation would be considered a
serious breach of good conduct.
Any proven incidents of theft between trainees would be considered a serious breach of good conduct.
Any breach of the law, either national or local, would be a breach of good conduct.
It is very important for the health and safety of everybody that instructions from members of staff are
complied with. Failure to comply with any reasonable instruction would be a breach of good conduct.
Outliers will be responsible for their own transport to and from the slopes or other venue where training is to
be held. Outliers will only be able to use the accommodation arranged by CDC for other Trainees for
meals by prior arrangement with CDC. Outliers will not be entitled to use such accommodation for other
purposes such as ski waxing or eating packed lunches, neither will they be permitted access to resident
