Liability Release and Indemnification
Chicago Russian is committed to conducting its programs and activities in a safe manner and holds safety of participants in high regard.
I acknowledge that my or my child’s participation in activities of Chicago Russian House is strictly voluntary. I hereby certify that I’m over 18 years of age, I have had an opportunity to ask any and all questions regarding class structure and any risks associated with participation in class, and that I understand and agree with the following terms and conditions. The term “I” in this release refers to both the child and his or her parents or legal guardians.
Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks.
I understand that the Activity might involve some risks of bodily injury, which may be caused by the child’s actions or inactions, those of others participating in the Activity, the conditions in which the Activity takes place, the negligence of the “Released Parties” named below, or other causes. I further understand that there may be other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time. I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, cost, and damages that may result from the Activity. I hereby give my approval of and consent to the child’s participation in the Activity. I assume all risks and hazards incidental to the Activity.
Representation of Ability to Participate.
Class activities are intended to challenge and engage the mental, emotional and physical resources of each participant. Despite careful and proper preparation and instruction, there is still a risk of injury when participating in any activity. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, participants/guardians must understand that certain risks and dangers do exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that is impossible for Chicago Russian House to guarantee absolute safety.
I understand the nature of the Activity, and I represent that the child is qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in the Activity. Should I ever believe that any of the above representations have become untrue, or if I should ever believe that the Activity is not safe or is no longer safe for the child, then it will be my responsibility immediately to discontinue the child’s participation in the Activity.
I hereby release, acquit, covenant not to sue, and forever discharge Chicago Russian House, its owners, officers, administrators, employees, agents, volunteers, sponsors, advertisers, teachers and supervisors, and the owners or lessors of any facilities within which the Activity is conducted, their respective agents and employees, and all other persons providing facilities or assisting in the conduct of the Activity (collectively the “Released Parties”) of and from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, demands, liability, losses or damages of whatever name or nature, including but not limited to those arising from or in any way related to the negligence of any of the Released Parties, that arise out of or are connected in any way to the child’s participation in the Activity (collectively the “Released Claims”).
I will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties from (that is, to reimburse and be responsible for) any loss or damage, including but not limited to costs and reasonable attorney’s fees (including the cost of any claim I might make or that might be made on my behalf or the child’s behalf that is released in this document), arising out of or connected in any way with any of the Released Claims.
I have read the Policies and Procedures for parents, spectators, and participants in the Activity and/or the Practice conduct, and agree to abide by all rules and conditions set forth therein and to accept the judgment of the program officials in this regard.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THIS ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISKS, REPRESENTATION OF ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE, RELEASE, INDEMNIFICATION, AND CUSTODIAL PARENTS. I UNDERSTAND THAT BY SIGNING THIS DOCUMENT, I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS. I AM EXECUTING THIS DOCUMENT VOLUNTARILY AND WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF ITS SIGNIFICANCE.
