Informed Consent for Participation in American Football and Associated Physical Testing
I understand that American football is a collision sport involving impacts of considerable force. I confirm that my participation in the sport can be potentially dangerous and the likelihood of injury is constantly present. I hereby voluntarily consent to my participation in all club practise sessions, games and fitness testing. I understand that participating in any of the above mentioned sessions could involve progressively higher levels of physical activity and that I may be encouraged to work at maximum effort.
I confirm that I am responsible for monitoring my own condition throughout my participation in games, practise and all physical testing. Should any unusual symptoms occur, such as but not limited to chest discomfort, nausea, difficulty in breathing, dizziness, light headedness, irregular heart beat and joint or muscle injury, I will cease my participation and inform the test administrator and/or coach of the symptoms.
I understand that every effort will be made to minimise problems by preliminary examination and observation during testing.
Also, in consideration of being allowed to participate in club games, practise sessions and all physical testing sessions, I agree to assume all potential risks from such participation and hereby release and hold harmless Cheshire Bears American Football Club and their agents, coaches and employees, from any and all health claims, law suits, losses, or actions for damages, including claims for negligence, arising out of or related to my participation in any physical activity organised by the club.
I have read the foregoing carefully and I understand its content. Any questions which may have occurred to me concerning this informed consent have been answered to my satisfaction.
