Waiver of Liability and Release Form
This form must be completed for each soccer player (participant) and, if the player is under 18-years old, must be signed by the player’s parent or legal guardian. No player will be allowed to participate in Youthfit Soccer, practices or games without this form, properly executed, and on file.
PARTICIPANT’S NAME __________________________ D.O.B. ________________
(type or print) (mm/dd/yyyy):
I, the undersigned, in consideration for my voluntary participation in organized soccer, do hereby willfully acknowledge that my signature below attests to my understanding and agreement that:
My player status will be kept in good standing. I will not compromise myself in such a way as to do harm to the league or tournament, knowing that players may be dismissed from participation, with possible loss of payment or dues, for violent conduct or unsportsmanlike behavior on or off the field of play. I agree to pay for any and all damages to any property or indemnities caused by me willfully, negligently, or otherwise.
Soccer is a physical, contact, sport that involves the risk of injury. I assume all risks and hazards associated with my participation in the sport. I am in proper physical condition to participate in soccer practices and games and have no illness, disease or existing injury or physical defect that would be aggravated by my participation. I will inform my coach if this status changes. I further acknowledge that this risk may involve loss or damage to me or my property, including the risk of death, or other unforeseen consequences, including those which may be due to the unavailability of immediate emergency medical care. I have a current medical consent form in force. I will wear shin guards, properly-fitted and appropriate shoes, and other protective equipment (e.g., mouth-pieces), as provided by soccer rules, to all events.
Under any condition, I am responsible for any and all medical expenses arising from my participation, both in practices and games and while travelling to and from these events. I have the right and responsibility to inspect the equipment and facilities prior to events and, if I believe that anything may be unsafe, I will advise the coach or supervisor of the condition and may refuse to participate. Participation assumes consent.
I hereby release, waive liability, discharge, and hold harmless, indemnify, and covenant not to sue, Youthfit Foundation, Youthfit Soccer or Luis Alba or the coaches or assistant coaches from any and all liability incurred in the conduct of, and my participation in, their soccer programs. This includes owners, lessors, and lessees of premises, municipalities, government agencies, successors, heirs, and assigns of premises we play.
I have completely read this document and fully understand its contents. I acknowledge that I have given up substantial rights by accepting this document and that I do so voluntarily. My signature attests to this on behalf of myself and my executors, personal representatives, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors, and assigns.
