I acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate in one or more soccer games of the Old Sunday Stumblers Soccer League (OSSSL) of Alameda County.
I recognize that the OSSSL is a strictly recreational league and that I am expected to play for the fun of the game. Further, I recognize that I have primary responsibility for my participation in and conduct during the soccer games and related activities of the OSSSL.
I recognize that soccer is a contact sport, that the fields where we play sometimes have defects, that there is a wide range of skill levels, and that these and other factors may represent a danger to me. Further, I recognize that injuries do sometimes occur during the course of play and that neither the OSSSL, its officers, its referees, the field owners, nor any other affiliate can prevent the injuries. I acknowledge that there is no insurance that covers medical expenses for any player or official that may be injured during the course of these soccer games and related activities.
As consideration for being permitted by the OSSSL or one of its affiliated organizations to participate in these soccer games and related activities, I hereby agree that I, my assignees, heirs, distributees, guardians, and legal representatives will not make a claim against, sue or attach the property of the OSSSL its officers, its referees, and any other affiliate as well as any public or private property owner on whose fields games are held for any injury or damage resulting from negligence or other acts, howsoever caused, by any player agent or contractor of the OSSSL as a result of my participation in soccer games. I hereby fully release the OSSSL, its officers, its referees, and any other affiliate as well as any public or private property owner on whose fields games are held from all actions, claims or demands that I, my assignees, heirs, distributees, guardians and legal representatives now have or may hereafter have for injury or damage resulting from my participation in soccer games.
I AM AWARE THAT SOCCER GAMES ARE A HAZARDOUS ACTIVITY. I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THIS ACTIVITY WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE DANGER INVOLVED, AND HEREBY AGREE TO ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY OR DEATH. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND A CONTRACT BETWEEEN THE OSSSL AND/OR ITS AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS AND SIGN IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL.
My signature indicates that I have read the above contract and agree to its contents.
