In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Westchester Women’s Soccer League, including but not limited to games, scrimmages, clinics, tournaments, events, and/or activities (collectively referred to herein as the “WWSL”), I hereby agree and certify as follows: 1. I acknowledge and fully understand that I will be engaging in a contact sport that might result in serious injury, including permanent disability, and severe social and economic losses due to not only my own actions, inactions, or negligence, but also due to the actions, inactions, or negligence of others or conditions of the field/facility or of any equipment used. Further, I acknowledge that there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. These risks may include, but are not limited to the nature of the activity; latent or apparent defects or conditions in the field/facility or equipment used; acts of other WWSL participants, referees or coaches; my own physical condition, acts or omissions; and first aid emergency treatment or other services. 2. I agree that prior to participating, I will inspect the field/facility and equipment to be used, and if I believe anything is unsafe, I will immediately advise the referee, if applicable, and refuse to participate. 3. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all the risks existing in participating in the WWSL. My participating in the WWSL is purely voluntary and I elect, in spite of the risks, to participate. I assume all the forgoing risks and accept personal responsibility for the damages following any injury. 4. I hereby certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating in the WWSL or alternatively I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I have no medical or physical conditions that could interfere with my safety in participating in the WWSL, or else I am willing to assume and bear the costs of all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition. 5. On behalf of myself, my heirs, assigns and/or personal representatives, I hereby voluntarily release, waive, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless WWSL and its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, agents, sponsors, coaches, former, present and future team captains, other WWSL participants, and owners, operators and/or lessors of premises used by the WWSL (together, “WWSL Releasees”), from any and all liability for any and all claims, demands or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in the WWSL or my use of fields/facilities and/or equipment for participation in the WWSL. 6. I agree to pay all costs and attorney’s fees from any legal proceedings that I bring in connection with my participation in the WWSL, as contrary to this Agreement, which are resolved in favor of WWSL Releasees. 7. I agree to abide by the rules of the WWSL, as amended and posted on the WWSL website. I agree to conduct myself courteously and in a sportsperson-like manner throughout all aspects of participation in the WWSL. I understand that if I engage in unsportsperson-like conduct or improper or dangerous behavior, the WWSL Board of Directors has the authority to permanently or temporarily restrict my participation in the WWSL. I understand and agree that the WWSL Board of Directors has the sole discretion to determine what constitutes unsportsperson-like conduct or improper or dangerous behavior. 8. I agree that New York state law governs this Agreement and that any action under this Agreement shall be brought only in the courts of Westchester County, New York. 9. I agree that if any part of this Agreement shall be found invalid that the remaining parts of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
