This waiver must be filled out in order to be eligible for the National Showcase Championship or ECD All-American Showcase.
Millon Lacrosse Events has reserved a place for your child (“the participating athlete listed”) in a Millon Event (National Showcase Championship or ECD All-American Showcase). The undersigned parent or legal guardian hereby agrees to enroll the participating student based on the terms and conditions stated herein. The undersigned parent(s) or legal guardian(s) are hereinafter collectively referred to as “I” or “me.”
I understand that every participating student is required to have health insurance coverage that provides an appropriate level of benefits befitting a participant in a contact sport. I affirm that my child has an appropriate level of coverage.
I recognize that participation in this Millon Event places the participating student at physical risk, as there is an inherent risk of injury when participating in a contact sport. I agree to assume that risk. Although Millon Events’ directors have taken reasonable measures to protect the participating student, I realize accidents, illness, and injuries may still occur. I hereby waive, release and forever discharge Millon Events, the Venue, all coaches and staff, representatives, employees, contractors, successors and assigns of any of the preceding of and from any and all rights and claims for damages to person and property which may be sustained or occur during participation in Millon Event by the participating student whether paid damages, injury or loss are due to negligence or not.
I understand that Millon Events occasionally uses photographs and/or video of gameplay of Millon Events for promotional purposes. I grant Millon Events permission to use the participating student’s name, image, and identity in any program for the promotion of Millon Events including written materials, website materials, video, or other forms.
SPORTSMANSHIP – Players, coaches, and spectators should exhibit the highest level of sportsmanship at all times. Coaches and officials should be partners in providing the best possible lacrosse experience for youth players. Unsportsmanlike conduct by coaches and/or players and/or spectators degrades the experience of youth players, discourages people from becoming or continuing as officials, and erodes the integrity and appeal of the sport. Therefore, unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated. Obscenities need not be used in order for language to draw a penalty. Tone, intent, and body language can all contribute to unsportsmanlike conduct. US Lacrosse expects officials to enforce the Unsportsmanlike Conduct rules without hesitation.
FAMILY BEHAVIOR – Any parents, friends, grandparents, etc acting in an inappropriate, crude, or unsportsmanlike manner is subject to ejection. Said ejection could result in removal from the grounds at any host facility at the discretion of the tournament director. This includes but is not limited to foul language, taunting other teams or their coaches, taunting other parents in the stands, and taunting or berating an official. This is a great event for the teams that should in no way be negatively impacted by parents and their behavior. Please make your parents aware of this rule prior to the event, as there will be no “second chances” if they were not made aware of the rule. If the behavior continues after sanctioning takes place, the team could face penalty time enforced through the refs or disqualification from the event.
