Assumption of Risk ** Waiver of Liability ** Indemnification Agreement
Capital Sportsplex, LLC. (hereafter referred to as Capital Sportsplex) is a company that provides opportunities for both youth and adult soccer participation. Opportunities include league and tournament play; individual and group practice; pick-up games; field rental; soccer-emphasis birthday parties; and soccer-emphasis corporate events.
Some of the many benefits of Capital Sportsplex activities include opportunity to compete and excel, improved self-confidence, better health, improved fitness, increased sense of belonging, wholesome recreation, social interaction, weight loss, improved appearance, and improved self-image. Exertion level of soccer is moderate to strenuous, depending upon the motivation of the individual.
While the many benefits of these activities are apparent, Capital Sportsplex and its staff regard participant safety as a top priority and feel it is important that the PARTICIPANT/PARENT (which refers to either an Adult Participant OR a Minor Participant and Parents/Guardians) understand that there are risks inherent in all physical activity – including soccer. Capital Sportsplex takes great care to reduce the risks (e.g., establishment of safety rules and warnings; referees at all league and tournament games; supervision of parties and corporate events) associated with soccer. Capital Sportsplex, however, does not supervise individual activity and activity on rented fields.
However, regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries, some risks are inherent in soccer and cannot be totally eliminated without changing the nature of the game. A few examples of the many inherent risks include, but are not limited to, heat- or cold-related illnesses; over-exertion; imperfect playing surfaces; failure to adhere to posted rules or warnings; careless, erratic, or negligent actions of co-participants; collisions with objects or co-participants; falls to the playing surface; unexpected equipment failure or malfunction; being struck by the ball; being kicked; ability of the participant to play; and, careless or erratic actions by children at parties.
Capital Sportsplex feels that it is important that the PARTICIPANT/PARENT understand that three types of injuries can occur. Minor injuries are the most common and include, but are not limited to, muscle soreness, headaches, sprains, abrasions, and bruises. Serious injuries are less common, but do occur occasionally. They include, but are not limited to, broken bones, concussions, torn ligaments or cartilage, eye injuries, cuts, and internal injuries. Catastrophic injuries are very rare; but Capital Sportsplex feels that every PARTICIPANT/PARENT should be aware of the slight possibility. These injuries include, but are not limited to, permanent disability, brain injury, paralysis and even death.
