ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND LIMITED RELEASE AGREEMENT
In consideration for being permitted by Castle Ministries to participate, and as an inducement to permit my family to participate in the programs and activities of Castle Ministries, I, the undersigned, recognizing the hazards and dangers inherent in said activity(s) and/or transportation to and from said activity(s), and already knowing or having been advised of said dangers and fully acknowledging the risk of injury or death inherent therein, whether by my own actions, the actions of others, or events beyond my control, do hereby agree to assume, and do knowingly and voluntarily assume, full responsibility for all the risks surrounding my family's participation in said activity(s) and any other activity(s) undertaken as an adjunct thereto, and all risks associated with my family's health problems and physical or emotional limitations; and, furthermore, for myself, my heirs, and personal representative(s), I hereby fully release Castle Ministries and all its officers, employees, and agents, without any limitation or qualification, as to any and all liabilities, claims, demands, and actions that might be made by me or my family on account of any losses, expenses, or damages of any kind concerning property or personal injuries (physical or emotional) or death that may result, directly or indirectly, from my family's participation in the aforesaid activity(s), unless any such damage or injury is primarily the direct result of a negligent act or omission by Castle Ministries or any of its officers, employees, or lawful agents and not caused in part by my own family's negligence. I acknowledge that participation in the activity described above involves risk to the participant (and to the participant’s parents or guardians, if the participant is a minor), and may result in various types of injury including, but not limited to, the following: sickness, bodily injury, death, emotional injury, personal injury, property damage, and financial damage. In consideration for the opportunity to participate in the activity described above (the “activity”), the participant (or parent/guardian if the participant is a minor) acknowledges and accepts the risks of injury associated with participation in and transportation to and from the activity. The participant (or parent/guardian) accepts personal financial responsibility for any injury or other loss sustained during the activity or during transportation to and from the activity, as well as for any medical treatment rendered to the participant that is authorized by the sponsor or its agents, employees, volunteers, or any other representatives (collectively referred to as the “activity sponsor”). Further, the participant (or parent/guardian) releases and promises to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the activity sponsor for any injury arising directly or indirectly out of the described activity or transportation to and from the activity, whether such injury arises out of the negligence of the activity sponsor, the participant, or otherwise. If a dispute over this agreement or any claim for damages arises, the participant (or parent/guardian) agrees to resolve the matter through a mutually acceptable alternative dispute resolution process. If the participant (or parent/guardian) and the activity sponsor cannot agree upon such a process, the dispute will be submitted to a three-member arbitration panel for resolution in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association.
