First Time Playing PBHL?


In consideration of being allowed to participate in PBHL activities, including but not limited to ball hockey, PBHL social functions or other sports activities put on by the PBHL, I agree and accept as follows:

1. I, the player, wishing to participate in PBHL, am 18 years old and have personally completed the registration form(s) truthfully and accurately and agree that I am fully responsible for updating same should any information provided require an update.

2. I further represent that I have never been expelled or barred from registering with any adult hockey organization in Alberta for reasons of violence or other misconduct.

3. I certify I have no known medical conditions that would prohibit me from participating in the sport of ball hockey. I am aware that the PBHL strongly recommends each player receive a medical check-up prior to participating in any event. I understand that I must wear a certified protective helmet at all times, even when I am not playing, when I am in the competition area which includes the penalty boxes, time keeper's booth and team benches.

4. I understand that the PBHL strongly recommends that players wear full face shields or visors and any other protective ball-hockey equipment including but not limited to cups, elbow pads, shin and pads which could reduce the risk or severity of injury because collisions or contact (accidental, incidental or purposeful) with other players, officials, equipment, the ball, the boards, are common in the sport of ball hockey and can result in serious injury and or death.

5. I acknowledge and fully understand that the sport of ball hockey is inherently dangerous and may result in serious injury, disability or and or death and severe social and economic losses which might result not only from the player's actions, inactions or negligence, but also from the action, inaction or negligence of others, the rules of play or the condition of the premises or competition area and all equipment to be used. Further, there may be other risks not known to me or the PBHL and there may be risks not reasonably foreseeable at this time.

6. I agree that prior to participating in any PBHL activity, I will inspect the competition area and all equipment used by the PBHL and if, through my inspection, I determine that anything related to that PBHL activity is unsafe, I will immediately advise the director of the PBHL, my team captain and the referee of this unsafe condition and not participate until the condition is corrected.

7. I assume all foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility and liability for any damages or costs following any injury, permanent disability or death to me during PBHL activities and I will not sue or seek redress from the PBHL for same.

8. I agree to always act in a mature and responsible manner before, during or after PBHL activities. I understand that, as a member of the PBHL, I represent PBHL to the general public. I understand and agree that any behaviour that the PBHL, at their sole discretion, deemed to jeopardize or harm the PBHL's reputation or economic interests will result in disciplinary action against me.

9. I agree to reimburse the PBHL in full, within ten days of notice, for the cost of any property damage for which I am held responsible for by the PBHL.

10. I understand and agree that I may be, fined, suspended, expelled or otherwise disciplined by the PBHL and/or from the PBHL immediately and without refund for conduct detrimental to the PBHL, deemed at PBHL's sole discretion, including but not limited to:
