The following is an agreement between you, the Parent/Guardian of the Player, and FC Frederick, Inc. (hereinafter “FCF,” “Golden Mile Soccer Program,” or “GMS”), with respect to the provisions below.
1. Assumption of Risk. I acknowledge and understand that there are certain inherent dangers associated with participation in GMS, and that the possibility of death, disability, or serious physical injury exists as a result of, among other things, physical contact with other participants, physical exertion, or playing conditions, including field conditions. Furthermore, I understand that if I observe any hazard during the Player’s participation in GMS, it is my responsibility to remove the Player from participation and bring such hazard to the attention of the nearest official immediately. With this knowledge and understanding, I knowingly and freely assume all such risks and hazards, both known and unknown, incidental to the Player’s participation in GMS.
2. Release and Indemnity to FCF. Recognizing the inherent dangers associated with participation in GMS identified in Section 1 above, I hereby release, discharge, hold harmless, and/or otherwise indemnify FCF/GMS and associated personnel, including the officers, trustees, directors, administrators, employees, agents, managers, volunteers, coaches, referees, and trainers against any and all claims, negligence, liability, and expense, including litigation costs and attorney fees, arising from in- juries, including death, disability, damage or loss by or on behalf of the Player and/or the Player’s parents, guardians and other relatives as a result of the Player’s participation in the Programs and/or being transported to or from the same. In addition, the Player and/or the Player’s parents, guardians and other relatives shall hold harmless and indemnify FCF and associated personnel from any and all claims, negligence, liabilities, and expenses arising out of third party lawsuits related to acts or omissions of the Player and/or any Parent/Guardian, sibling or other relative of the Player who attends and/or participates in GMS.
3. Consent for Medical Treatment. I acknowledge, agree, and represent that I understand the nature of GMS and that I am of the opinion that said Player, is qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in GMS. I further agree and warrant that if at any time I believe that such Player’s health and physical condition should change so that it would be unsafe for such Player to continue to participate in GMS, I will immediately discontinue the Player's future or further participation in GMS. I hereby give my consent to have the coach, assistant coach, manager, or trainer of GMS for which the Player is participating act as my surrogate in securing ambulance service and to have an athletic trainer and/or doctor of medicine or dentistry provide the Player with medical assistance and/or treatment under whatever conditions are necessary to preserve the life, limb, or well-being of the Player. I further agree to be responsible financially for the cost of each assistance and/or treatment rendered.
4. Media. As lawful consideration for the Player being permitted to participate in GMS, I hereby give permission and otherwise agree to allow FCF/GMS and/or its designee to use the Player’s film/video/photo image for display on its websites and/or to use the Player’s film/video/photo image in any digital medium or form whatsoever, including educational, instructional, or documentary films, videos, movies, DVDs, CD-ROMs, or printed materials.
