In consideration of the participation of my child (or, if applicable, minor for whom I am the legal guardian) (the “Child”) in basketball events and programs organized by Edgemont Travel Basketball Inc. (including, but not limited to, private training sessions, clinics, open gyms, team practices and games, and related programs and events)(the “Program”), I hereby:

2) Voluntarily permit the Child to participate in the Program;
3) Agree that the Child is in reasonable health and is capable of safe participation in the Program;
4) Agree to remove the Child from participation in the Program if I become concerned about the Child’s physical condition or overall readiness for participation in the Program;
5) Assume all risks and hazards with respect to the Child associated with her or his participation in the Program;
6) To the fullest extent permitted by law, release and hold harmless all Program participants, including (without limitation) directors, officers, employees, coaches, trainers, and other participants (in each case, whether paid or volunteer) (each, a “Program Participant”) from and against any and all liability and from and against any and all actions or claims that I or the Child now or hereafter have or may have for damage or injury to the Child, or to any person or property, resulting from the Child’s participation in the Program, whether caused by the actual or alleged negligence or other actual or alleged acts or omissions of any Program Participant;
7) Authorize the use and publication of photographs and videos of the Child and the use and publication of the name of the Child, in each case, to demonstrate the Child’s participation in the Program and for the sole purpose of promoting, on a not-for-profit basis, the Program;
8) Acknowledge that the Program Participants have sole discretion to permit or not permit, for any reason and at any time, the Child to participate in the Program;

12) Agree to promptly notify the Program administration of any actual or alleged inappropriate behavior by any Program Participant of which I become aware.
This Acknowledgment and Release, the terms of which I fully understand and have agreed to voluntarily, will be effective on the date that is the earlier to occur of the Child’s participation in the Program and the date of online registration and will continue for as long as the Child participates in the Program. All rights, obligations, releases and acknowledgments herein will be governed by the laws of the State of New York and survive indefinitely. This Acknowledgment and Release is binding on a) the Parent or Guardian who executes this document or affirms its terms (in writing or electronically), and b) any other parent or legal guardian of the Child.
