RELEASE & WAIVER FORM

I realize that I am responsible for my own and my teammates' conduct of play. I vow to present myself and represent my team in a sportsmanlike manner. In the event that I fail to do so, I realize that both myself and my team may be ejected from the tournament without the possibility of any entry fee refund.

I know that participating in strenuous activities such as basketball is potentially hazardous. I assume all risks associated with playing in this event including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, contact with basket, bleacher and other structures, effects of the weather, and the condition of the playing surface, all facts being known and appreciated by me. Knowing these facts, and in consideration of you accepting my entry, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators or anyone else who might bring claims on my behalf, covenant not to sue, and waive, release and discharge the Oregon National Guard Hoopla 3-on-3 Street Basketball Tournament, all charities benefiting from this event, the City of Salem, Oregon, Sasquatch Sports, Hoopla staff, volunteers, the Hoopla board of directors and committee members, and any and all sponsors, including Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., and its parent, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, including their agents, employees, assignees, or anyone acting on their behalf, from any and all claims of liability for death, personal injury, or property damage of any kind or nature whatsoever arising out of or in the course of participating in this event.

This Release and Waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown. I hereby grant full permission to any and all foregoing to use photographs, videotapes, motion pictures, recordings, or record of me or my likeness from this event for any purpose. Applications of minors shall be submitted only with a parent's or guardian's signature and must also be signed by the minor.

I EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THE FOREGOING RELEASE, WAIVER AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE IS INTENDED TO BE AS BROAD AND INCLUSIVE AS IS PERMITTED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE IN WHICH THE EVENT IS CONDUCTED AND THAT IF ANY PORTION THEREOF IS HELD INVALID, IT IS AGREED THAT THE BALANCE SHALL, NOTWITHSTANDING, CONTINUE IN FULL LEGAL FORCE AND EFFECT.

 

This Release, Waiver and Covenant Not To Sue embodies the entire agreement with respect to the matters involved herein and supersedes any previous or contemporaneous negotiations or agreements with respect to such matters.  I AGREE THAT NO PROMISE OR INDUCEMENT HAS BEEN OFFERED EXCEPT AS HEREIN SET FORTH, AND THAT THIS RELEASE, WAIVER AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE HAS NOT BEEN EXECUTED BASED UPON STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS BY ANY PERSON OR ENTITY OTHER THAN THOSE SET FORTH HEREIN.

 

This Release, Waiver and Covenant Not To Sue shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon without regard to conflicts of laws principles therein.  I HEREBY CERTIFY THAT I HAVE CAREFULLY READ, FULLY UNDERSTAND AND VOLUNTARILY SIGN THIS RELEASE, WAIVER AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE, AND UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY ALL THE TERMS USED AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE.  I HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO CONTACT AN ATTORNEY PRIOR TO EXECUTION HEREOF.
