In consideration of being allowed to participate in the San Diego County Lacrosse Association’s (SDCLA) athletic sports program and its related events and activities, the undersigned acknowledges and agrees that:
1. There is a real risk of injury from athletic activities, particularly the events and activities regarding this program. Although particular rules, equipment and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury, including permanent disability and death, does exist. The undersigned acknowledges and fully understands that each participant will be engaging in ACTIVITIES THAT INVOLVE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY, INCLUDING PERMANENT DISABILITY AND DEATH, and severe social and economic losses which might result not only from his own actions, inactions or negligence of others, but also from the rules of play, or the condition of the premises or of any equipment used. Further, the undersigned acknowledges that there may be other risks not known to the SDCLA or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. THE UNDERSIGNED FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT HE IS NOW AND WILL REMAIN A MEMBER OF US LACROSSE AT ALL TIMES DURING HIS PARTICIPATION IN THE SDCLA AND ITS RELATED ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS.
2. I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL THE RISKS, both known and unknown, OF PARTICIPATING IN LACROSSE ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, PRACTICES, GAMES, CLINICS AND TRAVEL TO AND FROM SUCH ACTIVITY, EVEN IF ARISING FROM ANY NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES listed in No. 4 or others, and assume full responsibility for my participation.
3. I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions of each organization for participation. If, however, I observe an unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such hazard to the attention of my coach and/or a SDCLA representative immediately.
4. I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next-of-kin, HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE, COVENANT NOT TOO SUE AND AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY LACROSSE ASSOCIATION and US LACROSSE, their respective directors, organizers, administrators, officers, agents, and/or employees, other participants, coaches, officials, sponsoring agencies, sponsors advertisers, and owners and lessors of premises used to conduct activities (each person or entity hereinafter referred to as a “Released Party”), WITH RESPECT TO DEMANDS, LOSSES OR DAMAGES ON ACCOUNT OF ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER CAUSED OR ALLEGED TO BE CAUSED IN WHOLE OR PART BY THE INDIVIDUAL OR COLLECTIVE NEGLIGENCE OF ANY OF THE RELEASED PARTIES OR OTHERWISE.
