I, the Parent / Legal Guardian of the above named candidate for a position on a Rutherford Little League Major, Minor, or Tee Ball Baseball team or Junior, Major, Minor, or Tee Ball Softball team, hereby give my approval to participate in any and all Little League activities. I assume all risks and hazards incidental to such participation including transportation to and from the activities, and I do hereby waive, release, absolve, indemnify and agree to hold harmless the Rutherford Little League, Inc., Little League Baseball, Inc., the organizers, sponsors, supervisors, participants and persons transporting my child to and from activities, for any claim arising out of injury to my child, whether the result of negligence or for any other cause, except to the extent and in the amount covered by accident or liability insurance. I understand that Little League Accident Insurance coverage is supplemental to any and all family and individual insurance plans. I am familiar with the sport of baseball and, to the best of my knowledge, my child is physically able to participate in this sport.
I agree to assume the responsibility for providing an athletic supporter (male child only) and insuring that said athletic supporter will be worn during all practices and games. I agree to return, upon request, the uniform (shirt, pants and socks) and other equipment issued to my child in as good a condition as when received except for normal wear and tear. I will furnish a legal Certificate of Birth of the above named candidate to the Board of Directors of the Rutherford Little League, Inc., upon request. I certify that the player named on this application lives or attends school within the boundaries of the Borough of Rutherford, Bergen County, New Jersey, at the time of initial application, and I will provide documentation of such residence or school enrollment upon request.
I am aware that the Rutherford Little League, Inc., mandates the use of a batting helmet with a face guard while batting, running the bases, or coaching the bases during games and practices, as well as the use of approved heart protection for all pitchers and all Major Baseball players, and of a face guard for Major and Junior Softball players.
I grant permission to the League to use photographs of myself or my child in promotions for the League. I understand that such images may be used in print publications, online publications, presentations, websites, and social media. I also understand that no royalty, fee or other compensation shall become payable to me by reason of such use.
This player application enrolls my child for the 2018 season, from September 2017 through December 2018. However, if my child must be evaluated for the 2019 Major Baseball season, a new player application must be completed for the 2019 season at the time of evaluations.
