2018 Annual Soccer Tournament Waiver of Liability and Release Form

This form must be completed for each soccer player (participant) and, if the player is under 16 years old, must be signed by the player’s parent or legal guardian.  No player will be allowed to participate in ACFOLA tournament games without this form, properly executed, and on file.

 

PARTICIPANT’S NAME (type or print):   

PARTICIPANT’S DATE OF BIRTH (mm/dd/yyyy):  

 

I, the undersigned, in consideration for my voluntary participation in organized soccer, do hereby willfully acknowledge that my signature below attests to my understanding and agreement that:

My player status will be kept in good standing.  I will not compromise myself in such a way as to do harm to the tournament, knowing that players may be dismissed for violent conduct or unsportsmanlike behavior on or off the field of play.  I agree to pay for any and all damages to any property or indemnities caused by me willfully, negligently, or otherwise.

Soccer is a physical, contact, sport that involves the risk of injury.  I assume all risks and hazards associated with my participation in the sport. I am in proper physical condition to participate in soccer practices and games and have no illness, disease or existing injury or physical defect that would be aggravated by my participation.  I will inform my coach if this status changes. I further acknowledge that this risk may involve loss or damage to me or my property, including the risk of death, or other unforeseen consequences, including those which may be due to the unavailability of immediate emergency medical care.  I have a current medical consent form in force. I will wear shin guards, properly-fitted and appropriate shoes, and other protective equipment to all events.

The tournament does not have personal injury insurance that covers my participation.  Therefore, I should have a current, active, personal injury insurance policy in force, which covers my participation.  Under any condition, I am responsible for any and all medical expenses arising from my participation, both in practices and games and while travelling to and from these events.  I have the right and responsibility to inspect the equipment and facilities prior to events and, if I believe that anything may be unsafe, I will advise the coach or supervisor of the condition and may refuse to participate.  Participation assumes consent.

I authorize my photograph, picture or likeness, and voice to appear in any documentary, promotion (including advertising), television, video, or radio coverage of the tournament, without compensation.

I authorize that an unaltered copy of this form may be generated and given to the officers or directors of tournaments in order to allow my participation in their soccer programs, if the form is required and I have requested to participate.

I hereby release, waive liability, discharge, hold harmless, indemnify, and covenant not to sue, the AFRICAN CANADIAN FEDERATION OF LONDON AND AREA, its associated directors, administrators, officers, managers, employees, coaches, trainers, volunteers, sponsors and advertisers, and other agents from any and all liability incurred in the conduct of, and my participation in, their soccer programs.  This includes owners, lessors, and lessees of premises, municipalities, government agencies, successors, heirs, and assigns.

I have completely read this document and fully understand its contents.  I acknowledge that I have given up substantial rights by accepting this document and that I do so voluntarily.  My signature attests to this on behalf of myself and my executors, personal representatives, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors, and assigns.

For those individuals eighteen (16) years of age and older:

 

___________________________ __________________________ _______________

Participant’s Name (PRINT)   Participant’s Signature   Date Signed

For those individuals under the age of eighteen (18) years (minor):

As the parent and natural guardian or legal guardian of the participant, __________________________, I hereby agree to the foregoing Waiver of Liability and Release for, and on behalf of, the participant (player/minor) named above.  I hereby bind myself, the minor, and all other assigns to the terms of the Waiver of Liability and Release. I represent and certify that I have the legal capacity and the authority to act for, and on behalf of, the minor in the execution of this Waiver of Liability and Release.

Digital Storytelling for Youth

 Unearthing the Story of African Community in London.

ACFOLA, funded by the Government of Ontario, is pleased to announce that it is going to start a youth project entitled “Unearthing the Story of African Community in London.”

This project will engage the youth (Grade 9-12) in story gathering, interviewing and editing using digital media to curate stories that merit wider audience. There are so many African stories of achievements that show overcoming of successive odds and obstacles that need to be unearthed and shared within the African Community and the society at large. To do this, there is no better way than involving the youth, the next generation, especially at the high school age bracket, to implement this project. This project would give the youth a close-up knowledge and experience of the lived and surmounted challenges by great African achievers. The project will result in the development of important skills that encompass, planning, organizing, critical thinking, communicating, writing, presenting, interviewing and editing using the medium of digital media. We are confident the youth would take this opportunity and the ones that are screened for this project will be compensated fairly for their time at $13.00 per hour.

Now we call all our members and supporters to encourage the youth to apply for this project.
In addition, we ask all members (association and individuals) to identify VOLUNTEER INTERVIEWEES who have exemplary stories, stories of success against all odds, to be interviewed by the youth. The volunteer interviewees are the achievers–women, business-owners, professionals, athletes, executives, students, seniors, scholars and others– within our communities. Let us identify them and share and document their unique stories.

Please send your interests to info@acfola.ca with the subject line: DIGITAL STORYTELLING.

Deadline for Youth applicants has been extended to December 1, 2017.
Deadline for Volunteer Interviewees has been extended to December 5, 2017.
