I know that playing hockey is potentially hazardous activity. I understand that unforeseen dangers may occur during the Tournament or related Activity and that I am participating with caution and take full responsibility to take proper action to avoid these unforeseen obstacles and dangers.

I understand that no amount of care, caution, instruction, or expertise can eliminate these risks. I understand the scope, nature, and extent of the risks involved and voluntarily and freely choose to assume any and all such risks. I recognize that the equipment I choose to wear during the Tournament may increase my risk of injury. Knowing these facts, I wish to participate, and in consideration of your acceptance of my entry fee, I knowingly assume the associated risks.
