Waivers are advisable wherever there is a heightened risk of injury. Sports carry heightened risks of injury in a way that other clubs or activities (such as chess or video games) do not.
Waivers are agreements not to sue for negligence. Even if someone is injured in a manner common to that sport where they should have foreseen that risk, without a waiver, that lawsuit will likely not be dismissed in the early phases of litigation. Where a waiver is applicable and properly worded, the waiver allows the court to dismiss the case at the beginning saving you thousands of dollars in legal fees.
Pretend that an athlete is injured while practicing, training, or competing from a risk that is mentioned in their waiver. They hire an attorney and sue your business for negligent coaching/instruction. We would file a quick motion on your behalf attaching that athlete’s signed waiver where they promised (i.e. contracted) not to bring a lawsuit exactly like this one. Assuming no other complicating factors, the court should dismiss the case immediately.
Waivers should be signed by a parent or legal guardian as well as the minor participant. Some states do not always enforce pre-injury waivers for minors so extra care should be taken to minimize the risk of injuries to minors and to respond quickly to any threatened lawsuits where a minor was injured.
They should be separate documents. Courts look more highly upon waivers that are separate from any pricing terms.
Once a participant signs a waiver in a given year, the waiver does not need to be resigned each subsequent year. However, if the participant becomes involved in different activities with you not named in their first waiver, their waiver should be updated. As part of your onboarding process, it may be easier to simply have everyone sign a contract and a separate waiver each year whether they are a returning or new athlete. All previous waivers should be stored regardless of whether they have signed a new one.
An attorney should offer (and be excited about) speaking with you about your business free of charge. They should learn every aspect of your business including how you work with employees, independent contractors, and volunteers to make sure you are compliant with state and federal employment laws and are employing best practices. Waivers unique to your business should be drafted inexpensively along with contracts and basic business advice. All projects should, where possible, be budgeted for you in advance so there are no surprise legal bills.
Stop making parents or players have to deal with paper waivers. Rather than taking time filling out paperwork as they show up on game day, send players (or their guardians) a link to quickly and easily sign the athletic release form online within a matter of minutes. Once they sign the document, you will receive a notification, so you can easily know who has—and who hasn’t—signed their waiver.Try it Free
Sports demand a high level of physical activity. It is important that your coaches know about any medical issues or other factors that might affect one of their athletes. Or you may want to know about food allergies so you know what type of after-game snacks to give out. With custom input fields, you can ask the questions that you need to keep players and coaches safe. And all that information is collected in an online database, so you can see all the factors at a glance.Try it Free
Every interaction your players or their parents have—emails, phone conversations, website visits, and social media interactions—impacts how people remember you and your team. Make the waiver process stand out among the crowd with custom branding in WaiverSign.
Avoid team registration hassles with streamlined liability waivers. Rather than providing stacks of papers to sign upon arrival, get the ball rolling by having a simple online sports waiver for players or parents of youth to sign ahead of time. Most coaches and organizers will simply add the WaiverSign link to a registration confirmation email. You can also post the link on your site or send it out in a text message. Participants can review and sign the waiver days or even weeks in advance. WaiverSign makes the signup process faster for everyone by reducing the paperwork required upon arrival and making it easier to account for all the signed waivers you need to collect.Try it Free
