Ottawa Indoor Sports (ORS) requires that every player must read this waiver form as they want to keep everything secure, while also the use of Sport Safety Surfacing is really important for them to keep everything safe. Signatures on the registration form signify each person has read, understands and abides by this information. In connection with any and all Soccer Tournaments or Leagues being held where they use winners podium staging for the prizes, sponsored and/or officially presented or endorsed by ORS, the “Player” specified below agrees for the benefit of Ottawa Indoor Sports and sporting event venue as follows:

Liability Waiver. Player acknowledges and agrees that: (1) Player’s participation in the Event requires extreme feats of a person’s physical and mental limits and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury or property loss; (2) Player expressly assumes the risks of participating in Event with full understanding of such potential risks; (3) Player maintains his own medical, disability and life insurance sufficient in Player’s determination to cover any expenses and damages to Player and his family, including loss of income, arising from Player’s injury, disability or death; (4) Player expressly waives, releases and discharges ORS and sporting event venue from any and all claims, costs, expenses or liabilities (including those involving death, personal injury or property damage) arising out of or relating to Player’s participation in the Event and other Services (“Claims”), excepting only Claims arising solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Ottawa Indoor Sports; (5) Player agrees not to sue ORS or sporting event venue for any Claim; (6) Player indemnifies, defends, protects and holds harmless ORS and sporting event venue from any Claims; and (7) Player agrees to execute such additional waiver and release as sporting event venue may reasonably require.

On Camera/Photo Release. ORS intends to photograph league games and related events and activities for production of history pages and advertising. Player knowingly and voluntarily agrees to be filmed during the Recordings and agrees that ORS have the right but not the duty to use Player’s name, voice, likeness and/or biographical information (collectively “Likeness”) in the Recordings and Productions in perpetuity without any compensation, as same may be exploited and exhibited in any and all media, including any advertising of league events,  and including the right to edit or modify the Recordings. Player acknowledges that the Recordings are the sole and exclusive property of ORS, which is entitled to all rights of ownership and all rights of copyright in and to the Recordings and Productions; with ORS owning all of the results and proceeds thereof, in all media, in all perpetuity.

Underage Spectator Policy:

ORS is an adult-only league; all players must be 19 years of age, or older, before they can participate in any ORS league or event. Our Liability Insurance covers adult participants, spectators and employees only. Players are discouraged from bringing underage spectators to any ORS league or event that takes place in a confined area where balls and other objects are moving quickly. If a parent/supervisor/guardian chooses to bring an underage person to any ORS venue, they do so at their own risk and will assume all liability and consequences related to the minor(s) they have brought.

By signing below you acknowledge that you understand the contents of this consent form and agree to its conditions.
