I understand and agree to the following:
The League’s decision shall be final on the adoption, enforcement, and interpretation of all League rules and policies, and all other matters relating to League activities.
I agree to abide by all such decisions not withstanding my personal preferences to the contrary.
Each team will have a team captain who will be elected from among the team’s players at the beginning of the season. The team captain will be authorized to act as the sole agent of the team for all purposes relating to League activities and events. If I am elected team captain, I will act to ensure that the team strictly complies with all League rules and policies.
The League may use for promotional, advertising, or educational purposes, without notice or compensation to me, any audio and/or visual recordings of any League activity in which I may appear.
I give explicit consent to The League to contact me via electronic and/or other methods of communication for any reason as deemed required by The League, including and not limited to marketing and promotional offers.
“NCHL”, “Non Contact Hockey League”, “Canadian Recreational Sports Development Corporation” and the names of and rights to all League teams, are the exclusive property of the League and shall not be used in any manner in connection with any non-League play or any tournaments or multiple games that have not been expressly approved or endorsed by the League.
In conjunction with the NCHL Rules & Regulations, these Terms of Registration, and any written notification of playing rules, policies, or conditions, represent the entire agreement between the League and me, and there are no valid or binding representations, inducements, promises, or agreements, oral or otherwise, between the League and me that are not set forth above. This agreement may be amended or modified only by writing signed by me and an authorized corporate officer of the League. To the extent there exists any inconsistency or conflict between these Terms of Registration and any other statement of League policy or rules, these Terms of Registration shall prevail and shall remain fully binding upon me.
I agree in and with the positive character and fair play principals of the NCHL which include (but are not limited to) first and foremost respect of self and others; followed by personal maturity; constant vigilance with respect to safety; personal, team and league character and integrity; and adding to and participating in a positive social interaction while in engaging in an appropriate acknowledgement, pursuit, and participatory competitive manner.
I understand that this is a recreational novice to intermediate league and accept personal responsibility for conducting myself accordingly and further agree to both assist and be subject to the NCHL mission statement “to provide competitive adult recreational ice hockey for men and women in a fun, safe environment”. Failure to abide as deemed by league administrators will result in my possible forfeiture, suspension, and/or expulsion.
I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE SPORT OF ICE HOCKEY HAS INHERENT RISKS OF PHYSICAL INJURY, INCLUDING SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, PERMANENT DISABILITY, PARALYSIS AND DEATH, AND I ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS.
These risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions or inaction’s, the actions or inaction’s of others participating in the event, the conditions or layout of the event, or my or other’s equipment. There may be other risks not known to me or that are not readily foreseeable at this time. The social and economic losses and/or damages that could result from those risks could be severe and could permanently change my future.
I HEREBY RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE the NCHL hereinafter referred to as ‘the League’, any of the League’s officials, management, owners, the proprietor or employees of any ice facility used by the League FROM ALL LIABILITY TO ME, my personal representative, assigns, heirs, next of kin, FOR ANY CLAIMS, DEMANDS LOSSES OR DAMAGE ON ACCOUNT OF ANY INJURY sustained by me while participating in any League activity, including, but not limited to, death or damage to property, CAUSED OR ALLEGED TO BE CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF ME OR OTHERWISE.
I hereby certify that I have adequate medical insurance to pay for the treatment and cure of any such injury, which may result from my participation in League activities, and I agree to be solely responsible for all medical, and other, costs arising from any injuries I may receive while participating in League activities. I further certify that I have no known medical condition, which would prohibit me from participating in the sport of ice hockey. I acknowledge that the League strongly recommends each player to receive a physical examination by a competent physician prior to participating in any League activity.
I further agree that prior to participating in any League sanctioned event, I will inspect the rink facilities and equipment to be used, and if I believe that anything is unsafe I will immediately advise my coach, team captain, and the game supervisor of such conditions, and I will refuse to participate until the unsafe condition(s) has been removed. I further understand that the League does not warrant any equipment used in any League activity or any facility at which League activities are held.
