Clay County Girls Basketball Academy, Corp Waiver/Release / Assumption of Risk Agreement

 

Everyone must sign a waiver in order to participate in ANY programs offered by  Clay County Girls Basketball Academy, Corp (“CCGBA”) 

 

In consideration of participating, in any way, in the CCGBA programs, and/or participating in, or attending related events or activities, at the facilities, the undersigned, hereafter called participant, and parent or legal guardian, the undersigned, hereafter called parent/guardian agree that he/she understands and/or will instruct  their  participant,  that  prior  to  participating  he/she  shall  inspect the facilities and equipment to be used, and if the participant believes anything is unsafe, he or she shall immediately inform his or her coach or CCGBA staff member of such condition(s) and refuse to participate unless and until such condition(s) is cured or removed.     

 

The participant and parent/guardian, acknowledge and fully understand that each participant will be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury, including permanent disability and death, and that severe social and economic loss may result not only from his or her own actions, in actions, or negligence but from the actions, in actions or negligence of others, as well as the rules of play, the condition of the premises or from any equipment used. Further, that there may be other risks not known to the adult and/or minor participant including risks that may not be reasonably foreseeable.

 

The participant and parent/guardian, assume all of the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for any injury, disability or death, and any damages, whether social or economic. I represent that I, or my child, am qualified, in good health and in proper physical condition to participate in activity(ies) at our facilities and hereby authorize any representative of CCGBA or medical provider, to seek medical attention on my behalf, or on behalf of my child, to ensure my wellbeing, or the wellbeing of my child, without any legal liability whatsoever, inclusive of any responsibility for any negligent rescue or delayed operations.

 

The participant and parent/guardian, releases, waives, discharges and covenants not to sue CCGBA, it’s affiliated clubs, administrators, members, directors, agents, coaches, board members, and other employees of the center, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors/lessees of the premises used to conduct the event or activity in which I, or the minor participant for whom I am responsible, participate (all of which are hereinafter referred to as “releases”), from any and all liability to each of the undersigned, his or her heirs and the next of kin, for any and all claims, demands, losses or damages on account of any injury, including death or damage to property, caused or alleged to have been caused, in whole or in part, by the releases or otherwise.

 

I authorize CCGBA to utilize in any promotional materials any image of me/my minor child, while participating in any activity at our facilities.

 

By signing below, I agree to abide by the rules and regulations, and facility policies as set forth above, as well as the official rules of USA Basketball (“USAB)”, Amateur Athletic Union (“AAU”) Youth Basketball of America (“YBOA”)  and failure to comply can result in my removal from the facility and suspension and/or cancellation of my membership.

 

I HAVE READ THE ABOVE AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT I/WE GIVE UP CERTAIN RIGHTS BY VOLUNTARILY SIGNING IT AND I/WE NEVERTHELESS DO SO.

 

In the case of 18-year olds signing their contracts, we will require the parents to act as co-­signer of all registration paperwork.

 

Athlete Release Policy – Refund Policy

 

CCGBA understands sometimes unfortunate season ending injuries, loss of job, job relocation, or a loss of a loved one do occur.  Therefore, we have partnered with US Sports Club Insurance to provide optional coverage to ease the burden of these unexpected life situations and assist with financial obligations.

 

In the event of a season ending catastrophic event established by the governing bodies of the sport before the season starts, CCGBA will refund all fees paid for tuition less any expenses that may have been incurred to prepare the team for the season.  Season extension or postponement of events does not constitute a season cancellation.

 

Accepting a position on a travel team obligates each athlete to agree to pay in full the registration and team fees which are nonrefundable, regardless of whether the athlete decides to leave CCGBA prior to the end of the seasonal year. In the event an athlete wishes to be released from the program or stops playing for the reasons listed above or any other reasons not mentioned, CCGBA reserves the right not to release the athlete until all funds are paid. An athlete who stops playing is not released from their financial obligation to CCGBA. In the event an athlete wishes to be released from the travel team, we ask that the athlete or parent/guardian submit a letter or email stating the reason for withdrawal to the Director of the Respective Division and the Director of CCGBA. This information will then be reviewed by the appropriate Director, and Chief Financial Officer for a separation decision.
