Waiver and Release

Bay Area Youth Sports Participant Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk

In consideration of being permitted by Bay AreaYouth Sports (hereinafter referred to as BAYS) to participate in its activities and to use its equipment and facilities, I hereby agree to release, indemnify and dischargeEBYS, Walnut Creek Sports, its agents, owners, directors, coaches, partners, employees, volunteers, manufacturers, participants, lessors, affiliates, its subsidiaries, related and affiliated entities, successors and assigns (the “RELEASED PARTIES”), on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as follows:


1)I acknowledge that my or my CHILD/WARD’sparticipation in BAYS programs and activities entail known and unknown 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. The risks include, among other things:


a) Tackle or Flag Football, Baseball, Soccer, Basketball and other youth recreational sports (hereinafter referred to as EBYS programs) entail certain risks that simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the sports. BAYS programs expose its participants to the usual risk of cuts and bruises. Participants often fall to the ground, collide with other participants, can sprain or break wrists, ankles, legs, arms, ribs, hands, back and feet, sustain dental damage and can suffer more serious injuries as well. Other more serious risks include head or neck injuries and even death. Other injuries not listed may be sustained that would normally be expected to occur from engaging in an active, fast paced recreational sport.


b) BAYS in many cases modifies the standard structure, rules and manner of play in order to create an activity that lessens the risk of injury but in no way certifies that these activities are free from potential harm.  


c) Furthermore, BAYS coaches and staff have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant’s fitness or abilities. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might become loose, out of adjustment, or malfunction. There is also a risk that BAYS coaches and staff may be negligent in, among other things, monitoring and supervising use of its equipment and in the maintenance and repair of its equipment.


  1. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My or my legal charge’s (child’s) participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks. I also expressly agree that this assumption of risk extends to spectators and sibings present to observe the activity of the participant to whom I am charged.


  1. from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my or my CHILD/WARD’sparticipation in this activity or my use of BAYS equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of RELEASED PARTIES to the fullest extent allowed by law. Should BAYS or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.



6.. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.


7. I agree that this Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk agreement is made on behalf a minor participant and that all of the releases, waivers and promises herein are binding on that minor participant. I represent that I have full authority as Parent or Legal Guardian to bind the minor participant to this agreement.


  1. which are brought by, or on behalf of the minor, and which are in any way connected with such use or participation by the minor, including injuries or damages caused by the negligence of RELEASED PARTIES to the fullest extent allowed by law, except injuries or damages caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the party seeking indemnity.


9. I understand and agree that BAYS does not offer refunds for any reason at any time and that commitment to participate is made upon execution of this registration contract.

10. I promise to pay all balances due no later than the end of the registered season. Balances due include but are not limited to fees, damaged, lost or unreturned equipment or any other balance which may be due as a result of my child's participation in the program.  I authorize payment for balances due to be charged to the payment instrument used to enter into this contract.

11. I hereby expressly waiver all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, and under any and all similar laws of any jurisdiction. I am aware that said Section 1542 of the Civil Code provides as follows: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.


By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property damaged during my or my legal charge’s (child’s) participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my or the minor participant’s right to maintain a lawsuit against EBYS or any RELEASED PARTIES on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.
I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms


East Bay Youth Sports Parent Code of Conduct

The essential elements of character building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these "six pillars of character." 

I therefore agree that

1. I understand that EBYS and BAYS programs are "less than competitive" and are designed to develop skills and fun while emphasizing teamwork, character and sportsmanship. I understand that EBYS does not maintain scores or standings in any of its programs.  I understand that this league and its referee's primary purpose is to manage a game with these concepts in mind and not to penalize or create an overly competitive environment.  

 2. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

 3. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.

 4. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or sporting event.

 5. I, my player (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as aggressive acts, booing and taunting, refusing to shake hands, or using profane language or gestures.

 6. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

 7. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

 8. I will teach my child that doing one's best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.

 9. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.

 10. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

 11. I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

 12. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches or league representative at an agreed upon time and place.

 I understand that failure to abide by this agreement may result in immediate ejection and / or permanent barring from any or all league activities.

By Checking this box I acknowledge that I have had sufficient opportunity to read the entire waiver and release document as well as the Parent Conduct Agreement. I have scrolled through and read the entirety of the documents, I have read them both and understood them, and I agree to be bound by their terms. *
