  • This release governs all images acquired by the MLFHC of my daughter unless I notify Alexandra McMahan in writing regarding the exclusion of a specific photograph from this release.

    I AGREE to the use of my child's photograph by the Main Line Field Hockey Club ("Mayhem") for all purposes reasonably related to the promotion of Mayhem, in any manner or medium now known or later developed, without the need of my prior approval and I RELEASE the photographer and/or videographer, MAYHEM and its directors, volunteers, and coaches, of any liability relating to the permission I have granted in this release.

    d. unpredictable or unsafe physical conditions of the premises and/or facilities where MLFHC Activities occur. While training, skills, equipment, personal discipline, and other mitigation efforts may reduce the risk of injury to the Participant, such risk of injury cannot be eliminated and will always exist while participating in MLFHC Activities.

    2. I understand and fully acknowledge that the Participant’s participation in MLFHC Activities is solely at our own risk and I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES (as defined below) or others, and assume full responsibility for the Participant’s participation in MLFHC Activities.

MLFHC is not required to return, refund, or repay any costs or fees as a result of its decision to exercise its right to prohibit an individual from participating in MLFHC Activities.

    6. I, for myself, my spouse, the Participant, my predecessors, successors, heirs, administrators, assigns, agents, representatives, trustees, attorneys and affiliates (the “Releasors”), hereby irrevocably and unconditionally release, waive, and forever discharge MLFHC and each of its owners, administrators, assigns, partners, officers, directors, agents, representatives, trustees, attorneys, affiliates and all affiliated companies, employees, coaches, volunteers, spectators, contractors, subcontractors, owners and/or landlords of the premises and/or facilities used by MLFHC, and all persons acting by, through, under, or in concert with them, or any of them, (the “Releasees”) with respect to any and all known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, injuries, illness, disability, death, loss or damage to person or property, expense, cost(s), fees and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs or any nature whatsoever) or other source of liability or damages arising from, relating to, or in connection with the Participant’s presence at or participation in MLFHC Activities INCLUDING ANY NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES.

    7. I HEREBY AGREE NOT TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST THE RELEASEES AND FORFEIT ALL MY RIGHTS TO DO SO.

    8. The Releasors agree to fully warrant, indemnify, and hold harmless the Releasees against any and all liability, claims, demands, lawsuits, actions, motions or other proceedings arising from, relating to, or in connection with the Participant’s presence at or participation in MLFHC Activities, WHETHER ARISING FROM, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, including claims brought by or on behalf of the Participant, to the fullest extent permitted by law.

I certify that the Participant currently has medical/health insurance to cover any injuries that he/she may sustain during his/her participation in the activities of MLFHC.

    10. This Agreement, as well as any other dispute between myself and MLFHC, shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania without regard to conflict of law principles. Jurisdiction and venue for any disputes arising out of or related to the Participant’s involvement in MLFHC Activities or this Agreement shall be exclusively in the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
