ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER & RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY FOR ALL THIRD PARTY CLAIMS.

This Assumption of Risk, Waiver and Release of Liability agreement (“Agreement”) is by and between the undersigned and Calvary Chapel South Bay, Inc., a California non-profit corporation, (“CCSB”). CCSB is participating in a sports softball league managed by the City of Torrance (and/or its recreation department) by allowing attendees of CCSB to be on various softball team(s) assembled by CCSB. (“Softball League”). The undersigned desires to participate in the Softball League and is willing to enter into this Agreement in order to be a member of CCSB’s softball team(s). “I” or “me” as used herein means myself (if not a minor) and the minor and custodial parent or person (if participant is a minor).

I am aware that participating in sports activities, including softball games in the Softball League is an inherently dangerous sport in which I am choosing to voluntarily participate at my own risk. I am aware that the usual risks, hazards and dangers of personal injury, death and disability or property damage and loss (collectively “Damages”) substantially increase when participating in such sports leagues. I know that the risks, hazards and dangers include, but are not limited to, being hit by a ball while playing softball, falling, jumping, landing, sliding into bases, and/or colliding with other participants, staff, personnel and spectators. I also understand that these risks, hazards and dangers are further increased when other persons, whether or not of the same level of experience or skill, are present at the same time and playing in the Softball League. (all of the above defined activities are collectively referred to throughout this Agreement as the “Hazardous Activities”).

It is my intention to release CCSB their officers, managers, employees, directors, associates, agents, contractors, volunteers, sponsors, vendors or exhibitors, or any other person or company in any way associated with them (collectively, “Releasees”), of any duty to me and I do assume the entire Risk of any of the Damages which might occur during or as a result of my participating on a CCSB team(s) in the Softball League, if that be the case. I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, hereby release and hold harmless and agree to indemnify and hold harmless and defend CCSB, its officers, officials, agents and/or employees, other participants, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of the city sports league and its facilities (e.g. The City of Torrance) used to conduct any the Softball League, from any and all claims, actions, damages, liability, costs or expenses, and attorney fees of any spectator, other member, or third party in connection with or arising out of my involvement or participation in any activity involving the Softball League, all with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property, whether arising from the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise.

In addition, I understand and agree that this Agreement and its terms and conditions shall be fully applicable with a term of no less of a term than twenty (20) years from the date of my execution hereof (“Term”), and that by entering into this Agreement, I am representing to and inducing CCSB to materially rely upon this understanding and representation as to this Agreement’s Term. I may terminate this Agreement and terminate its Term upon my issuing to CCSB at its church address a written notice terminating this Agreement.

I acknowledge and agree that I have read, understand and agree to be bound by the Rules of Safety/Conduct (“Rules”) governing my conduct while participating in the Softball League. I understand that the Rules are strictly enforced.

The undersigned further agrees that this Agreement is intended to be interpreted as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of California, and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

The undersigned further certifies that he/she (or the minor upon whom I have lawful custody) has no medical condition which would cause participation in activities in the Softball League to be potentially or actually hazardous to his or her health. In addition, this Agreement shall constitute authorization for CCSB to provide, or cause to be provided, such medical treatment to me may be necessary or appropriate if an injury occurs while participating in the Softball League.

THE UNDERSIGNED HAS READ AND VOLUNTARILY SIGNS THIS AGREEMENT, and further agrees that no oral representations, statements or inducements apart from this Agreement have been made by CCSB or Releasees or anyone else with regard to the subject matter of this Agreement.

WE/I HAVE COMPLETELY READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT AND ITS TERMS. PRIOR TO SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, WE/I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS AGREEMENT AND CCSB WE/I ARE AWARE THAT, BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, WE/I ASSUME ALL RISKS AND WAIVE AND RELEASE CERTAIN RIGHTS THAT I AND MY HEIRS, NEXT OF KIN, FAMILY, RELATIVES, GUARDIANS, CONSERVATORS, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS, TRUSTEES AND ASSIGNS MAY HAVE AGAINST RELEASEES.

If the participant in the Softball League is a minor, I represent to CCSB and agree that it may rely upon such representation that I have lawful physical and legal custody of such minor named herein and am lawfully empowered to sign this Agreement on my and such minor’s behalf.
