In relation to this participant I acknowledge and accept that there is an inherit risk in the participant playing in an age group which is above/greater than the participant’s current age including but not limited to participation against adults in All Age and senior competition. It is acknowledged participation in (soccer) football is a high exertion activity and a contact sport and that the participant has an equal if not greater risk of both general injury and injury from contact arising from participation in the higher age group.

I as guardian of the participant am aware that by signing this document I am waiving certain legal rights on behalf of the participant that I or the participant has or may have had against the Club, AWFA, Football NSW, Football Victoria and their respective board members, officers, employees or related third parties and I reconfirm that there is an inherit risk in participation in the higher age group which includes but is not limited to the potential for serious personal injury or death.
Where I as guardian sign on behalf of a minor child, I also give full permission for any person connected with the Club and/or AWFA and/or Football NSW and/or Football Victoria to administer first aid deemed as necessary, and in the case of serious illness or injury, give permission to call for medical and/or surgical care for the participant and to transport the participant to a medical facility deemed as necessary for the wellbeing of the child.
