I agree to direct my/our child to cooperate and comply with reasonable directions and instructions from CYO staff or adult volunteer leaders (coaches).
I agree to be responsible for all medical expenses relating to injury of my/our child as a result of his/her participation in any sport activity, whether or not caused by the negligence of parish, school, or CYO program employees, agents or volunteers or other participants.
I understand that children competing in athletic and recreational sports programs risk injury to the body, psyche or property damage to themselves and others. Such injuries can be caused by teammates, other persons or accidentally or intentionally self inflicted, faulty equipment or facilities, conditions of recreational facilities or the schools or parishes where sports activities are held, vehicle accidents while in transport or through the activity itself. Protective equipment used in a sports activity is not a safeguard against injury.
I hereby give permission for my child to be photographed by the Oakland Diocese CYO at CYO activities. I realize that the photograph may be published on a CYO website, in a CYO brochure, in a newspaper, a magazine, or other publication.
In consideration for being permitted to participate in the sports activities of CYO, use the equipment provided and to enter the premises or facilities of the Diocese of Oakland (Diocese) for any purpose including observation and participation in activities, the parent or guardian for him or herself and any successors in interest and on behalf of the minor child agrees:
1. To release, waive, discharge and promise not to sue the Diocese of Oakland, and its affiliated entities, its officers, directors, employees, agents and volunteers (hereafter referred to as “Releasees”) from all liability for any loss or damage, and any claim or demands therefor on account of serious or mortal injury to the body, injury to psyche or property of the minor child, or undersigned parent or guardian, whether caused by negligence or other conduct by the Releasees while the minor child, parent or guardian is participating in CYO sports activities or in, upon or about the premises of the Diocese or any of its facilities or equipment.
2. To indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage or cost it may incur due to the presence of the minor child, parent or guardian in, upon or about the premises of the Diocese, its facilities or equipment, or while participating in any CYO sports activities whether caused by the negligence of Releasees or otherwise.
3. That the parent or guardian has read this Agreement, voluntarily signs the Agreement and that no oral representations, statements or inducements apart from the contents of this written Agreement have been made.
I have read and agree to the terms of the Volunteer Commitment located under the Program Information link (See RESOURCES page) required for my child(ren)’s participation in the CYO Track & Field program. This includes the requirements related to the number of shifts required to receive a refund of the volunteer deposit and the fees associated with shift no-shows.
If you do not fulfill the volunteer commitment, your child(ren) will not be allowed to advance beyond the Qualifying meet.
I have read, understand and agree to all the terms required for participation in the 2019 CYO Track and Field program:
