Participation in Australian Rules Football activities, like any sport, involves but not is not limited to warming up, demonstrations, training, practicing, and playing games. Participants must understand that participation in such activities exposes one to risks and dangers of serious and/or permanent bodily injury, including disability, paralysis, and even death.
Risks may present in any number of ways, including, but not limited to, contact and/or interaction with other participants, spectators, various equipment, the field itself, adjoining facilities, and/or other fixed objects. Also trips, falls, collisions, rough play, contact with errant limbs and other mishaps, adverse weather, flaws and/or failures of equipment and facilities, poor field conditions, misunderstood instruction, and negligent participation are all just some of the possible risks.
Risks may be caused by the participant’s own actions or inactions, and/or the actions or inactions of others. Participants must also understand that some risks cannot be predicted or controlled, and there may be other risks and consequences that are not readily foreseeable ahead of time.
Participants MUST consider the nature of these activities and acknowledges that these risks exist and that they still wish to participate in these activities of their own free will, and that they have been medically cleared and believe themselves physically qualified to participate in such activities.
Participants also acknowledge that they are aware that the activities will be conducted at facilities that are open to the general public and other members of the public may also attend the session. Participants also agree that if, at any time, they believe conditions to be unsafe, they will immediately discontinue further participation in the activities.
By consenting to participate in Australian Rules Football activities, participants fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for costs, losses, and/or damages incurred as a result of this participation.
Once at the park, before beginning any training sessions, please be aware that you will be required to sign a Waiver of Liability and you should be prepared to supply Emergency Contact information, as well. Though we don’t expect any incidents, as we strive to keep these sessions as safe and low-contact as possible, sometimes unfortunate things can happen.
We may ask you if it is OK to take your photo while you are learning and/or playing Australian Rules Football with us. We may post these photos on social media to help promote the growth of the game.

Coming out to the session, wear clothes for fitness activity, a hat to protect from the sun, sunscreen, and a pair of soccer cleats might also be a good idea. Again, this will be a non-contact session, but a mouth guard is always recommended. It is also a good idea to pre-hydrate, as well as bringing non-alcoholic liquid refreshments for you and your group.
