TO: CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. refers to their agents, owners, officers, affiliates, volunteers, participants, employees, and all other persons, properties or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (alternatively referred to as “Cheer Legacy Athletics”, “CLA”, "Cheer Legacy North Battleford", "Cheer Legacy Lloydminster"):

 IN CONSIDERATION OF Cheer Legacy Athletics allowing the participant described below to participate in cheerleading activities, the participant agrees as follows on behalf of themselves, their spouse, children, parents, heirs, assigns, personal representatives and estate:

1. I acknowledge that my participation in CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. programming or activities entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.

Risks include (among other things): cuts and bruises; falling off of equipment; muscle and joint sprains and strains; broken wrists, ankles and legs; participants falling on each other resulting in broken bones and other serious injuries; flipping, running can cause serious injury; colliding with or being landed on by athletes of a different size. If the participant is injured, they may require medical assistance, at their own expense. Cheer Legacy Athletics employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek to create a safe environment but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant’s health or abilities. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions and the equipment being used might malfunction.

I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

 2. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. and to waive any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, that I have or may have in the future against CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. and to release CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. from any and all liability for any loss, damage, expense or injury including death that I may suffer or that my family, heirs, assigns, personal representatives and estate may suffer as a result of my participating in CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. activities DUE TO ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR BREACH OF ANY STATUTORY OR OTHER DUTY OF CARE, AND FURTHER INCLUDING THE FAILURE ON THE PART OF CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS ACTIVITIES (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS “CLAIMS”).

 3. I further agree to hold harmless and indemnify CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. from any and all liability for any property damage or personal injury to any third party resulting from my participation in CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. activities.

4. Should CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. or anyone acting on its behalf be required to incur legal fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. harmless from all such fees and costs.

 5. Any litigation involving the parties to this agreement shall be brought solely within Canada and shall be governed by the laws of Saskatchewan.

 6. I further grant CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. the right to photograph, videotape and/or record me and/or my child/ward and to use my or my child’s/ward’s name, face, likeness, voice and appearance in connection with exhibitions, publicity, advertising and promotional materials without reservation, limitation or compensation.

 8. I understand that completion of this waiver is due diligence for CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. Failure to complete the waiver properly or filling out the waiver on someone else's behalf still releases Cheer Legacy Athletics Inc. and any of their affiliates from any liability.

I also understand that the Policy Handbook is subject to change throughout the season. It is expected by CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. that I am checking the Policy Handbook for updates and that I agree with all rules and regulations that are part of the Policy Handbook both present and future.

11. When a family fails to notify CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC of any allergies, previous injuries, medical diagnosis, etc. it is assumed by CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC that the child does not have any and that they are free to participate fully and partake in any snacks/meals/etc. that are provided by CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC. CHEER LEGACY ATHLETICS INC is not responsible for any consequences caused by a failure to inform.
