Participation Sportsmanship Commitment, Waiver of Liability, Medical Release, Hold Harmless Waiver and Privacy Policy

Registrants for all FYSA programs must accept the following Participation Sportsmanship Commitment, Waiver of Liability, Medical Release, and Privacy Policy in order to submit their registration order (see further below for the additional waiver pertaining to Adult Divisions):

In consideration for my voluntary participation in organized soccer activities through FYSA, I hereby willfully acknowledge to my understanding and agreement that:

I will not compromise myself in such a way as to do harm to the league or facilities, knowing that players may be dismissed from participation, with possible loss of payment or dues, for violent conduct or unsportsmanlike behavior on or off the field of play. I will exhibit good sportsmanship in all my activities and remember that this is a recreational program, open to youth of all skill levels, without an emphasis on winning. I will conduct myself appropriately in interactions with youth, parents, coaches, league administrators and officials. I will also report any observed violations of good sportsmanship that I witness to the league. I agree to pay for any and all damages to any property or indemnities caused by me willfully, negligently, or otherwise.

Soccer is a physical, contact, sport that involves the risk of injury. I assume all risks and hazards associated with my participation in the sport. I am in proper physical condition to participate in soccer practices and games and have no illness, disease or existing injury or physical defect that would be aggravated by my participation. I will inform the league if this status changes. I further acknowledge that this risk may involve loss or damage to me or my property, including the risk of death, or other unforeseen consequences, including those which may be due to the unavailability of immediate emergency medical care. I have a current medical consent form in force. I will wear properly-fitted and appropriate shoes, and other protective equipment, as provided by soccer rules, and follow other safety guidelines issued by the league, to all events.

I authorize my photograph, picture or likeness, and voice to appear in any documentary, promotion (including advertising), television, video, or radio coverage of the league or tournament, without compensation. Participants will never be tagged/identified on social media or the other above-mentioned sources without written consent.

I hereby release, waive liability, discharge, hold harmless, indemnify, and covenant not to sue, the United States Soccer Federation, the State Association, the Club, the league or tournament, their associated directors, administrators, officers, managers, employees, coaches, trainers, volunteers, sponsors and advertisers, and other agents, estates or executors, from any and all liability incurred in the conduct of, and my participation in, their soccer programs. This includes owners, lessors, and lessees of premises, municipalities, government agencies, successors, heirs, and assigns.

For applicable Recreational programs (SAY Soccer Hold Harmless Waiver): WE HEREBY AGREE THAT THE SOCCER ASSOCIATION FOR YOUTH (SAY) ITS MEMBERS, COACHES OR OFFICERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY OR LOSS WHICH MY CHILD MAY SUSTAIN WHILE PARTICIPATING IN ACTIVITIES OF ANY KIND WHETHER SPONSORED BY OR UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF SAY AND WE AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND TO HOLD HARMLESS SAY, ITS MEMBERS, COACHES, OFFICERS OR DESIGNATES OF ANY KIND FROM ANY CLAIM WHATSOEVER.

I have completely read this document and fully understand its contents. I acknowledge that I have given up certain rights by accepting this document and that I do so voluntarily. 

For those individuals under the age of eighteen (18) years (minor): As the parent and natural guardian or legal guardian of the participant, I hereby agree to the foregoing Waiver of Liability and Release for, and on behalf of, the participant (player/minor) named above. I hereby bind myself, the minor, and all other assigns to the terms of the Waiver of Liability and Release. I represent and certify that I have the legal capacity and the authority to act for, and on behalf of, the minor in the execution of this Waiver of Liability and Release.

I have also read, understood and accept the privacy statement for Blue Sombrero and Dick's Team Sports HQ, host of this website, viewable here:  https://sports.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=795746&ctl=Privacy
