WAIVER FOR THE OKANAGAN PREMIER LEAGUE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that there is potential risk for injury involved in the training and participation of any physical activity.

Bumps, bruises, scrapes, scratches and soreness are commonplace, and most participants will encounter this sort of minor injury from time to time while taking part in this activity. More serious injuries are possible, including sprains, strains, twists, cramps, and injuries of similar magnitude. The possibility of more serious injury exists, including fractured bones, broken bones, torn ligaments, though most students do not encounter such serious injuries. There remains, despite safety precautions, the remote possibility of crippling or death. I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE all such risks, dangers and hazards, resulting from my participation in the Okanagan Premier League its affiliated provincial/territorial sport-governing bodies, and clubs.
I am also aware that I should discuss my participation in this activity with my physician to determine the effect on my current health. It is my right and responsibility as a participant to immediately remove myself from participation in the program and notify the nearest official, if at any time I sense any unusual hazard or unsafe condition or if I feel that I am physically, emotionally, or mentally unfit for continued participation in the program. I have read and understand the above statement of risk.
I assume responsibility for my own safety, and I understand and accept the risks involved with soccer.
