Agreement to Participate in Playball
Scheduling, Payment, and Attendance:
-Registration must be completed and fees paid before placement in any class or camp can be guaranteed.
-Payment can be completed online using PayPal or by mailing a check made out to Playball. Visit the Contact tab to request the mailing address.
-A $20.00 administration fee will be applied to all returned checks.
-Playball is not responsible for lost or stolen checks at your child care provider.
-There are no refunds or reduction in fees for non-attendance at a scheduled class. Please check the schedule posted on the website at the begining of each session.
-Due to the nature of Playball's pre-registration policy, once a spot on the roster is reserved with payment, there can not be a cash refund. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis for Playball credit.
-Should Playball find it necessary to de-register a child, a refund will be issued after deduction for classes already attended.
Session and Class Cancelations:
-Playball reserves the right to cancel any session due to insufficient enrollment. Upon cancellation, a full refund will be made.
-Due to the sport nature of Playball, most of our classes are held outside and therefore we are at the mercy of the weather. Whenever possible we will use indoor space. If there is no indoor space available, there will be a maximum of two make-up weeks due to inclement weather (snow days from school, extreme cold, heat, or rain.)
Participation in all sports can be inherently dangerous and it is impossible to ensure the safety of all participating individuals. Playball demands cardiovascular fitness, coordination, and agility. Although many risks can be avoided, I, the parents/guardian understand that not all risks can be avoided and I release Playball from responsibility for any injury that my child might incur during the course of normal play. I further understand that in the event of a medical emergency, my child’s coach at Playball will call EMS to render assistance and that I will be financially responsible for any expenses involved.
While playing sports, accidents do happen. Some of these accidents may be minor like collisions with other players, with the ground, or being struck by a ball.
To reduce the risk of injury, participants are expected to abide by the following rules:
-Wear sports appropriate clothing and shoes (no crocs, flip-flops, or rain boots)
-Stay within the boundaries of the Playball field
-Adhere to the rules of Playball, thus creating a safe playing environment

I certify that the above-mentioned participant 1) possesses a sufficient degree of physical fitness to safely participate in Playball, 2) understands that they are to discontinue activity at any time if they feel discomfort or stress, and 3) has indicated in the "Special Needs" section any health-related conditions that might affect their ability to play sports and will verbally inform the Playball coach before classes have started.
I have read the preceding information. I know and understand the risks associated with participation in Playball and I am voluntarily participating the above-mentioned participant in the activity. In doing so, the above-mentioned participant is assuming all of the inherent risks of the sports program.
