I, the named participant, hereby request that BBYO allow me to participate in BBYO’s Sports Programs (“Programs”), either as a Member or non-Member of BBYO, Inc. I agree to abide by the conditions of participation set forth in the BBYO Code of Conduct and in other documents, policies and procedures that may be provided by BBYO to me. I further understand and agree to accept the risks associated with such participation, as more fully set forth below and in other documents, policies and procedures that may be provided by BBYO to me.
I understand that there are risks associated with my participation in Sports Programs, including but not limited to personal injury, injury to another, or even sudden death. I also acknowledge that current events may expose me to increased risk at times and that if programs are held in remote locations, access to medical facilities may not meet the standards to which I am accustomed. I understand and appreciate the nature of such hazards and risks and fully and unconditionally release and forever discharge BBYO, Inc. and their respective directors, officers, employees and all of their respective successors and assigns from any all liability to me, my family and my personal representative, including heirs, successors, and assigns. I accept responsibility for all injuries, damages, loss and liability, including but not limited to any claims for negligence, negligent supervision and/or negligent provision of medical care and/or medication and the consequences thereof, occurring in connection with and/or in any way related to my participation in BBYO Sports Programs at any time after the execution of this Agreement.
- This release extends and applies to, and covers and includes, all unknown, unforeseen, unanticipated, and unsuspected injuries, damages, loss and liability, and the consequences thereof, occurring in connection with and/or in any way related to my participation in Sports Programs at any time after the execution of this Waiver and Release.
- I agree to indemnify and hold harmless BBYO from any financial liability or obligation that I personally incur, or for any injury or damage to the person or property of others that I cause or contribute to, while participating in the Programs. I understand and agree that BBYO shall not be liable for any property (whether owned or rented) that is damaged, lost or stolen throughout the duration of the Programs.
- I agree that, if I become ill or incapacitated, BBYO may take any action it deems necessary for my safety and well-being, including securing medical treatment (at my own expense) and making arrangements for transporting me home or to any medical facility, as the case may call for. I understand that in such instances I will not be entitled to any refund of paid Program fees or costs and that all travel arrangements, costs and liabilities associated with being sent home or to a medical facility will be the sole responsibility of me and my parent(s)/legal guardian(s).
- I understand that in the event I may need medical care, I may be taken to and receive care from local clinics that may not meet the standard to which I am accustomed. Further, in some instances, healthcare facilities expect upfront payment. I understand and agree that I am responsible for all such payments, whether upfront or otherwise in case of a medical emergency.
- I understand and agree that I am required to comply with the current laws of the United States, its states, territories and municipalities in which Sports Programs may take place. I understand and agree that my failure to do so may result in discipline, including the immediate termination of my participation. I further understand and agree that BBYO, as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, has the right but not the obligation to search my person and/or belongings and to take such action (or to refrain from such action) at it deems appropriate to secure the safety of me and/or others and/or to ensure compliance with BBYO Code of Conduct.
- I understand and agree that in the event I am expelled from a Program, I will not be entitled to any refund of paid Program fees or costs and that all travel arrangements, costs and liabilities (including but not limited to escort costs, if applicable) associated with being sent home will be the sole responsibility of me and my parent(s)/legal guardian(s).
Authorization to Take/Publish Photographs and Videos
I hereby authorize BBYO to take and/or publish photographs/video/quotations taken of me (including printing or otherwise publishing my name in association with such photograph/video or quotation) in printed or electronic format, including but not limited to in publications, presentations, promotions (including those which are mailed), exhibits, press releases, marketing materials, videos, CDs, DVDs, BBYO websites (both internal and external) and any social media associated with BBYO in any form now existing or that may come to exist in the future. I acknowledge that since my participation in such photographs/video/quotations is voluntary, I will receive no financial compensation and my participation confers upon me no rights of ownership whatsoever to such photographs/video/quotations. I further understand and agree that such photographs/video/quotations may be shared by BBYO with its various partners consistent with these provisions.
Acknowledgment and Agreement
I hereby acknowledge that I have fully read, understood and accepted each of the above provisions. I further acknowledge that I have been provided with a copy of the BBYO Code of Conduct. I release BBYO from liability resulting from my participation in programs.
