WAIVER & RELEASE OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND/OR PARENTAL CONSENT AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT
In consideration of being allowed to participate in the USA ROLLER SPORTS (USARS) sports programs and related event listed above the undersigned agrees:
1. I, the undersigned, do affirm the registration information above is correct and truthful and hereby make application to USARS for amateur registration with which to identify myself at sanctioned competitions, exhibitions and other appropriate occasions. I further agree to abide by the rules and regulations of USARS during the terms of this registration and agree to observe the Amateur Code of Conduct, in spirit as well as in letter, upholding the high ethics of amateur roller skating.
2. I understand dangers may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in these activities. I understand the nature of USARS' activities and believe that I (or my minor child) am/are qualified and physically fit to participate in roller skating competitions and practices. I further acknowledge that I am aware that the activity will be conducted in facilities open to the public. As a skater, parent or legal guardian, I further agree and warrant that prior to participating in any event I will inspect the facilities to be used and if believing conditions to be unsafe, I will immediately advise my coach or the meet director of this condition and refuse to participate unless corrected.
3. I fully understand that USARS' activities involve risks and dangers of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, and economic losses which might result not only from a skater’s actions, inactions or negligence, but the action, inaction, or negligence of others, the rules of competition, or the condition of the premises or any equipment in use. I fully accept and assume all such risks and responsibilities for losses and costs and damages incurred as a result of my participation in USARS activities or arising out of my traveling to or returning from such activities or practice sessions.
4. I hereby release, discharge, covenant not to sue, and agree to hold harmless USARS, their administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers and employees, other participants, any sponsors, advertisers, and where applicable, owners and lessors of premises and their employees on which the activity takes place (collectively “Releasees”), from all liability, claims, demands, losses, or damages caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the Releasees. I further agree that if a claim is made against any of the Releasees that arises out of or in any way relates to my participation or involvement in a USARS activity or event, I, AND THE PARENT OR GUARDIAN SIGNING ON BEHALF OF A MINOR, AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS EACH OF THE RELEASEES FROM ANY LITIGATION EXPENSES, ATTORNEY’S FEES, LOSS, LIABILITY, DAMAGE, OR ANY COSTS INCURRED AS A RESULT OF ANY SUCH CLAIM.
I have read this agreement and fully understand its terms, understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it, and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by the law and agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid that the balance, not withstanding, shall continue in full force and effect. We acknowledge our responsibility to deliver this membership application to USARS Headquarters before insurance benefits associated with this membership are effected.
