Waiver, Release & Indemnity
I understand and agree that the sport of ice hockey has inherent dangers and risks of physical injury, including serious bodily injury, permanent disability, paralysis, and death and I freely accept and fully assume all such dangers and risks.
I acknowledge that:
I am aware of these dangers and risks and that they may be caused by my own actions or inactions or the actions or inactions of others participating in hockey.
These dangers and risks include, but are not limited to, injuries or sickness from: disease including but not limited to COVID-19, exerting and stretching various muscle groups, vigorous physical exertion, rapid movements and quick turns and stops on the ice, strenuous cardiovascular workouts, collision with other participants or man made objects (e.g. sticks, pucks, boards, ice), the conditions or layout of the event, or my or another’s equipment.
There may be other risks not known to me or that are not readily foreseeable at this time. The health, social and economic losses and/or damages that could result from those risks could be severe and could permanently change my future.
In consideration of the South Calgary Recreational Hockey League (SCRHL) agreeing to my participation in the SCRHL, I agree as follows:
- To waive any and all claims against and to covenant not to bring any claim whatsoever against SCRHL, any of the SCRHL’s officials, referees, management, representatives, or owners, or the proprietor or employees of the ice facility used by SCRHL (collectively, the Releasees).
- To release and discharge the Releasees from any and all liability for any claims, actions, demands, losses, damage (including but not limited to death or damage to property), injury, costs, or expense that I may suffer or that my next of kin may suffer as a result directly or indirectly of my participation in any SCRHL activity due to any cause whatsoever, including, but not limited to, any negligence, breach of contract, or breach of statutory duty of care or other duty.
- To indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees and each of them from and against all claims, actions, costs, expenses, and demands brought by any person in respect of death, injury, loss, or damage, whether to person or property, resulting directly or indirectly from my participation in the SCRHL.
- I have read and understood this agreement and am aware that by stating "yes" above, I am waiving certain legal rights which I or my heirs , next of kin, executors, administrators, and assigns may have against the Releasees.
