GALA Athletic Agreement



Agreement to Participate

Participation in all sports can be inherently dangerous and, regardless of the care taken to avoid injury, it is impossible to ensure the safety of all participating individuals. In fact, many sports come with inherent dangers. Playing sports can demand cardiovascular fitness, coordination, and agility. Players may spend more than 45 minutes in intense physical activity and must be constantly aware of their surroundings (other players, goalposts, net posts, and the ball itself). Although soccer & volleyball are not generally thought of as a contact sport, at competitive levels, it is. Although many risks can be avoided, some simply cannot.

While playing sports, accidents do happen. Some of these accidents may be minor like collisions with other players, collisions with the ground, and being struck by the ball. Other accidents may be more significant like collisions with the goalposts. Other injuries may also include:

Minor injuries like scrapes, bruises, strains, blisters, and sprains;
More serious injuries liken broken bones, concussions, muscle tears, and ligament tears;
Catastrophic injuries like heat stroke, cardiac arrest, and death
To reduce the risk of injury, participants are expected to abide by the following rules:

All participants are expected to be physically fit before participating in JMG Inc. Programs.
All players must adhere to the rules of the sports, thus creating a safe playing environment.
The above-mentioned participant agrees to follow the preceding safety rules, all posted safety rules, and all rules common to the enrolled sport. Further, the above-mentioned participant agrees to report any unsafe practices, conditions, or equipment to the JMG Inc. Coach.

  3) has indicated in the “Special Needs” section any health-related conditions that might affect his/her ability to play and he/she will verbally inform the JMG Inc. Coach immediately.

I have read the preceding information and it has been explained to me. I know, understand, and appreciate the risks associated with the enrolled sport and I am voluntarily participating the above-mentioned participant in the activity. In doing so, the above-mentioned participant is assuming all of the inherent risks of the sport.
