“The Facility” means the cycle track and bicycle park at YMCA Newark and Sherwood

I acknowledge that this bicycle park is an extreme test of a person’s physical and mental limits and carries with it the potential for death, serious personal injury and property loss.

These risks are not only inherent to athletes, but are also present for volunteers. 

I acknowledge that this Injury Waiver and Liability Release form (IWLR) will be used by YMCA Newark and Sherwood, and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities at their Facility.

In consideration of my application and permitting me to participate at this park, I hereby agree on behalf of myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns as follows:

(C) I expressly agree to accept responsibility for all risks existing and inherent in any of the activities from time to time, and acknowledge that my participation in the activity is voluntary and that I am fully aware of the risks. As a result of participating I agree to accept any consequences except for death or personal injury caused by YMCA Newark and Sherwood’s negligence and/or breach of statutory duty.

(D) To the maximum extent permitted by law but subject to the non-excludable consumer guarantees implied pursuant to UK Consumer Law, in no circumstances will YMCA Newark and Sherwood, YMCA Robin Hood Group, their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, and agents, event holders, event sponsors, event directors, or event volunteers be liable in respect of any claim for any indirect or consequential loss or damage, including without limitation personal injury, financial loss, or for any punitive, exemplary, special, incidental or consequential loss or damage whether such liability arises in contract, tort (including negligence), equity, breach of statute or statutory duty or breach of any consumer guarantees

(E) I agree to indemnify the entities or persons mentioned in paragraph D from any and all liabilities or claims made by other individuals or entities as a result of any of my actions at the Facility.

I hereby consent to receive medical treatment which may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident and or illness at the park. I understand that at YMCA Newark and Sherwood, I may be photographed. I agree to the use of all my photo, film, video or film likeness for legitimate purpose by YMCA, sponsors, organisers and/ or assigns.

This IWLR shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law. I hereby certify that I have read this document and I understand its content.
