Sports Waiver Forms

When it comes to sports leagues and tournaments, protecting yourself from lawsuits is a wise move. Sports organizations, sports doctors, and agencies – to help protect them against potential liability – make use of waivers. This goes for any and all sporting activity including, but not limited to, wrestling, lacrosse, football, soccer, basketball, softball, swimming, baseball, and more. Physical activity and contact are generally involved in most sports, opening up the risk of injury (or worse) to players. Participants, clients, players, etc., may still get injured, despite all your best efforts.
