SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LACROSSE ASSOCIATION and THOUSAND OAKS LACROSSE RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT(Parental Consent for Minor)
I acknowledge that I have enrolled my child in a lacrosse program promoted by the Southern California Lacrosse Association (“SCLA”) and the Thousand Oaks Lacrosse (“TOL”). In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in the athletics/sports programs sponsored by SCLA and TOL, and related events and activities, the undersigned agrees to this release and waiver of liability.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: My child and I understand that lacrosse (i) involves playing an aggressive contact sport with others and (ii) the sport inherently involves a high degree of risk that could result in serious bodily injury or death to my child or to other participants, and severe social and economic losses which might result not only from their own actions, inactions, or negligence, but the action, inaction or negligence of others, the rules of play, or the condition of the premises or of any equipment used.
AGREEMENT: By enrolling my child in the lacrosse program, I certify that my child and I are cognizant of all of the inherent dangers of participating in lacrosse. I further certify that my child is familiar with the rules of the game and of the field and will to the best of their ability play under control and avoid injury to themselves and other persons playing the game. The undersigned agrees that the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) will instruct the minor participant that prior to participating, he or she should inspect the facilities and equipment to be used, and if the participant believes anything is unsafe, he or she should immediately advise his or her coach or supervisor of such conditions and refuse to participate. I understand that my child should not participate in this program if he/she is under the influence of drugs or alcohol or if there are any other physical conditions that may impair his/her ability to understand instructions or to participate without creating risk to him/herself or others. The undersigned hereby assumes all the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for the damages following such injury, permanent disability or death.
RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION: For and in consideration of the right for my child to participate in lacrosse, the undersigned hereby assume all risks associated with lacrosse, including among other things the negligence of the SCLA and TOL (and their respective officers, directors, contractors, employees, agents, coaches, administrators, instructors, and volunteers) and release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the SCLA and TOL and/or their respective sponsors, subcontractors, directors, officers, team representatives, employees, agents, coaches, administrators, instructors, and owners and leasers of the premises used to conduct any lacrosse related event (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”), and further hold the Indemnified Parties harmless from any and all liability, actions, causes of action, debts, claims, demands of every kind and nature whatsoever which may arise out of or in connection with child’s participation in any activities arranged for my child by SCLA and/or TOL. I accept full responsibility for the cost of treatment for any injury suffered by my child while taking part in the program(s). The terms hereof shall serve as a release and assumption of risk for my heirs, executor and administrators and for all members of my family including any minors accompanying me.
I further state that I am of lawful age and legally competent to agree to this affirmation and release, and that I understand the terms herein are contractual and not a mere recital. I have agreed to this document and the undersigned understand that it has given up substantial rights by signing.
