Hi-Five Participant Waiver & Release
In enrolling my child/ward (“Participant”) at Hi-Five Sports Zone (“Hi-Five), I, the parent/guardian of the Participant, understand that in attending a Hi-Five program and using the Hi-Five facilities, the Participant does so at his/her own risk. Hi-Five and its owners, employees and agents shall not be liable for any damage whatsoever arising from any personal injury or property loss sustained by participant while participating in a Hi-Five program or being present at a Hi-Five facility.
I, on my own behalf and on behalf of the Participant, and our respective heirs, successors and assigns, hereby release, discharge and hold harmless, Hi-Five and all associated facilities, and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, representatives and agents (hereinafter, collectively “Releasees”) from any and all liability, whether caused by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, for any claim, demand, damages, judgment, loss, liability, cost and expenses (including, without limitations, attorneys fees and costs) arising out of or connected with a Hi-Five program, including any claim arising out of or connected with any illness or injury (minimal, serious, catastrophic and/o death), that the Participant may incur or sustain while participating in a program or being present at a Hi-Five facility.
Participant shall follow the rules of conduct and play set by Hi-Five. Failure to do so may result in suspension from participation.
In the event Participant suffers an illness or injury while at Hi-Five during my absence, I hereby authorize Hi-Five to obtain necessary medical treatment of the Participant and I, in my own behalf and on behalf of the Participant, release and hold harmless Releasees in the exercise of this authority. I further acknowledge and understand that I will be responsible for any and all medical and related bills that be incurred on behalf of Participant for any illness or injury the Participant may sustain while at a Hi-Five facility.
I do hereby consent to the use by Hi-Five and its successors and assigns of photographs, pictures, videos or other likeness of Participant, as they deem appropriate, in its advertising and promoting of Hi-Five programs and activities and associated promotional materials.
This release and waiver shall apply to any and all current and future programs and activities the Participant may engage in at a Hi-Five facility. The Undersigned does hereby warrant and represent that he/she is in fact the parent/guardian of Participant, has consented to the Participant’s participation in a Hi-Five program or activity, has read and fully understands the contents of this Waiver and Release and has agreed individually and on behalf of the Participant to the terms set forth above.
I. Essential Safety Rules
1. Parents and the participant agree to comply with all Facility safety policies which include but are not limited to the following:

II. Assumption of Risk
1. Parents and the participant assume all risks of loss or injury resulting from contracting COVID-19 as a result of the participant’s participation in the Facility program, activities, use of facility and equipment.
2.

3. Having read and understood the above, Parents and the participant hereby assert that the child’s participation in a facility program is completely voluntary.

2. Parents and the participant enter into this waiver of liability on behalf of themselves, their heirs, successors, assigns, and personal representatives.
3.

This includes injuries or losses arising from the inherent risks of the Facility programming experience or the ordinary negligence of the Facility Parties.
2. Parents further agree to hold harmless, defend, and indemnify the Facility Parties (that is, defend and pay any judgment and costs, including investigation costs, court costs, and legal/attorney fees) against any and all claims of co-participants, rescuers, and others arising from the participant’s or a parent’s conduct in the course of participation at the Facility.
