Consent for Treatment of Minor and Release of Liability
The undersigned, the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of the above named minor(s) hereby authorize my child's coach or any other official of Hype Fastpitch to consent to any medical examination or treatment, including hospitalization and/or surgery, which is deemed advisable, appropriate or necessary by duly licensed physicians, emergency medical technicians, paramedics or other medical practitioners in order to properly care for my child in the event she sustains injury or is suffering from any illness during the course of any playing or non-playing activities of Hype Fastpitch; provided, however, the foregoing consent or authorization shall be valid only in a situation where a parent or legal guardian of the above named minor(s) is not reasonably available to provide the necessary consent to medical treatment. I also give my permission for my child to represent Hype Fastpitch, a competitive fastpitch softball team, and to accompany her team to any of its local or out of town tournaments, games or practices. In the event my child is injured or becomes ill during the course of any playing or non-playing activities of Hype Fastpitch, I hereby authorize her coach or any other official of Hype Fastpitch to administer or obtain appropriate first aid, and if necessary, to transport my child to a physician or hospital for further treatment. I hereby consent to my child's participation in any and all activities of Hype Fastpitch, and I agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless Hype Fastpitch, and its officers, directors, and agents, from and against any liability of any kind arising out of the activities of Hype Fastpitch or transportation to and from such activities. I understand that participation in competitive athletics involves risk of physical injury or death which cannot be totally eliminated. However, players may reduce such risk by following a proper conditioning program, wearing or using helmets and other appropriate safety equipment, and properly reporting any injury to their coaches. In allowing my child to participate in the activities of Hype Fastpitch, I understand that I am expressly assuming the risks referred to above and releasing Hype Fastpitch from any and all liability arising out of or relating to the activities giving rise to such risks.
