Liability Release and Indemnification
I consent to minor’s participation in the activities and acknowledge that the minor and I fully understand minor’s participation may involve risk of serious injury or death, including losses or harm from: minor’s own actions, inactions, or negligence; the actions, inactions, or negligence of others; the condition of the facilities, equipment, or areas where the activities are being conducted; and/or the rules of play of this type of event or activity. I understand that if I have any risk concerns, I should discuss the risk associated with minor’s participation with the instructors before I sign this document and before any activities begin.
In consideration of allowing minor to participate in the activities, I hereby release and hold harmless The Sorrento Yacht Club, Sorrento Village Improvement Association, their members of the respective boards of trustees, officers, employees, volunteers, other participants, and agents collectively, the (“Released Parties”), of and from, and do discharge and waive, any and all claims, demands, losses, damages, and liabilities that minor or I may have or sustain, whether individually or on minor’s behalf, with respect to any and all damage and/or injury, of any type, arising out of minor participating in the activities. I also agree that if any portion of this argument is held to be invalid the balance shall continue in full force and effect.
The undersigned further agree to hold harmless, indemnify, and save the Released Parties from any and all claims, demands, losses, damages, and liabilities for indemnities, contribution, or otherwise with respect to any damage and/or injury of any type arising from minor’s participation in the activities. The undersigned also agree that this Agreement in all parties extends to all acts by the Released Parties, with the exception of gross negligence or intentional misconduct and is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of Maine in which the activities are conducted and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall continue in full legal force and effect.
I certify that minor is in good health and has no physical condition that would prevent participation in activities. Furthermore, I agree to use my/minor’s personal medical insurance as a primary medical coverage payment if accident or injury occurs. I consent to emergency medical treatment in the event such care is required.
