CORP SPORTS RALLIES & SPORT TOURNAMENTS ORGANIZING SERVICE
WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
Please read the following agreement carefully, as it affects your future legal rights.
By proceeding with registering for the event, you acknowledge and agree that you have carefully read and fully understood the agreement and agree to, and certify, the terms set forth below.
In consideration of being allowed to participate in the CORPORATE SPORTS event (the “Event”), any events or activities related thereto (individually an “Event Activity” and collectively, “Event Activities”), on behalf of myself and my personal representatives, assigns, heirs, executors, successors and next of kin, I understand, agree, warrant and covenant as follows:
Authority to Register and/or to Act as Agent. I represent and warrant to CORPORATE SPORTS that I have full legal authority to complete the registration for the Event, including this Waiver and Release of Liability (the “Waiver”), on behalf of myself and/or any party for whom I am registering (the “Registered Parties”), including full authority to make use of the credit or debit card to which registration fees will be charged. As used in this Waiver, CORPORATE SPORTS refers to CORP SPORTS RALLIES & SPORT TOURNAMENTS ORGANIZING SERVICES and any and all subsidiaries, affiliated entities, or entities that control or are controlled by Corporate Sports, singly or together, including each of their officers, employees, contractors, subcontractors, including Action Consultants, and agents and each of their agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Corporate Sports Parties”).
Minors. All children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times. I undertake at all times to accompany and be solely responsible for any child under 12 years of age attending any Event Activities with me. I agree that any failure to comply with this undertaking may result in my removal from any Event Activities. I represent and warrant that I am the parent or legal guardian of the child accompanying me and that I have the legal authority to enter into this Waiver on their behalf. By agreeing to this Waiver, I agree that the terms of this Waiver shall apply equally to any child under 12 years of age attending any Event Activities with me.
Risks. Risks of Event Activities include, but are not limited to, injury to the head, neck or spine; injury to muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and other connective tissues; injury to internal and external organs, loss of or damage to sight, hearing, or teeth; long or short term disability; loss of income, career opportunities or the enjoyment of life and; pain, and scarring or disfigurement. The causes of possible injury are many, including, but not limited to, injury from bodily contact, incidental or inherent in the nature of the activity; slipping and falling or tripping on surfaces, regardless of physical or environmental conditions; injury from warming up, practicing or training for participation; injury due to supervision or lack of supervision by the Corporate Sports Parties’ employees or agents, including officials, or to rules or regulations and instructions (or lack thereof) regarding the use of equipment or tools or to the nature of the activity itself; or injury due to a disparity among other participants or teams with respect to experience level, strength, height, weight, age, ability, and the relative competitiveness or maturity of, between or among other participants and; malicious acts of other participants, regardless of whether Corporate Sports had or should have had knowledge of the likelihood of malicious acts by such participant. The risk of injury from many of the activities is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular skills, rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury cannot be eliminated.
Assumption of Risk. In consideration of the acceptance of my registration and participation in the event, I assume full and complete risk and responsibility for any injury or accident which may occur during the event, while I am on the premises of the event, or while I am traveling to or from the event. I understand that participating in the event is hazardous, and that I should not enter and participate unless I am medically able and properly trained. I acknowledge and agree that the event may be held over public roads and facilities open to the public during the event and upon which hazards are to be expected. I also acknowledge and agree that participation in the event carries with it certain inherent risks and dangers that cannot be eliminated completely ranging from risk of minor injuries to catastrophic injuries including permanent disability and death. I am aware of and assume all risks associated with participating in the event, including without limitation risks of permanent injury or death due to falls, obstacles, contact with other participants, acts or omissions of other participants, effect of weather, traffic and conditions of any road.
Representations and Warranties. I represent and warrant I am in good physical condition and able to safely participate in any Event Activity in which I participate. I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation. If I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of the nearest official immediately. I will not exceed my physical abilities during any Event Activity. I acknowledge that the Corporate Sports Parties have made no recommendations or determinations as to my fitness or ability to participate in any Event Activity. I represent and warrant that I shall periodically and as needed consult with my physician, and shall not engage in any activity that is more rigorous than that recommended by such physician. I consent to medical care and transportation in order to obtain treatment in the event of injury to me and understand that this Waiver extends to any liability arising out of or in any way connected with the medical treatment and transportation provided in the event of an emergency and/or injury. I further agree that I will not use any equipment unless and until I have thoroughly familiarized myself with the correct use and operation thereof. I further agree that I shall not participate in any activity if I am ill, in poor health, or have any condition which might make my participation in the activity dangerous to me or if I have reason to believe I am injured or may become injured. I agree to observe and obey all posted rules and warnings, to follow any instructions or directions provided to me by Corporate Sports and to abide by any decision of any Event official relative to my ability to safely participate in or attend the Event. I shall exhibit appropriate behaviour at all times while at the Event, comply and obey all local, state and federal civil and criminal laws while participating in or attending the Event, including respecting other people, facilities, equipment and property. I agree that Event officials may dismiss me, without refund, should my behaviour endanger the safety of or negatively affect the Event. I understand and agree that Corporate Sports is not responsible for any personal item or property that is lost, damaged or stolen at the Event. I understand and agree that all Event registrations are non-transferable and that all Event registration fees are non-refundable.
Event Participation. Corporate Sports reserves the right to remove any Participant from the Event, either during or before it, due to ill health, or any other reason (at the Organiser’s discretion) that may render him/her unfit to safely complete the Event.

The Participant understands that he/she will not be entitled to a refund of the fees if he/she is disqualified from the Event as a result of an infringement of these rules, regulations or instructions.
