Competition Waiver

Competition Waiver

Covering all Modern Pentathlon Competitions, Local, Provincial, National and International

Each person taking part in Modern Pentathlon competitions under the auspices of Pentathlon Canada, a provincial organization and/or an affiliate club must complete this form.

I am aware that Modern Pentathlon involves many inherent risks, dangers and hazards, including but not limited to, the use and operation of air pistols, fencing equipment, equestrian equipment, horses and obstacles, cross-country running terrain with associated hazards, negligence on the part of event organizers, event volunteers, coaches, other athletes and spectators.

I freely accept and fully assume all such risks, dangers, and hazards and the possibility of personal injury, property damage or loss resulting from such risks, dangers, and hazards.  In consideration of Pentathlon Canada, the Pentathlon Alberta Association and Affiliated Clubs allowing me to take part as a manager, coach or athlete in Modern Pentathlon competitions, whether they be local, provincial, national or international, (hereafter referred to as “the Competitions”), I hereby agree as follows:

  1. TO ASSUME AND ACCEPT ALL RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS in connection with my participation in, and/or travel to or from, the Competitions;
  2. TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS that I may have against Pentathlon Canada, the Pentathlon Alberta Association and Affiliated Clubs, and its directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives (all of whom are collectively referred to as Pentathlon Canada, Pentathlon Alberta and Affiliated Clubs).
  3. TO RELEASE Pentathlon Canada, Pentathlon Alberta and Affiliated Clubs from any and all liability for any loss, damage, injury or expense that I, or my next of kin, may suffer or incur as a result of my participation in, and/or travel to or from, the Competitions, due to any cause whatsoever, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF PENTATHLON CANADA OR PENTATHLON ALBERTA or the host province Alberta;
  4. TO HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY PENTATHLON CANADA, the PENTATHLON ALBERTA ASSOCIATION and AFFILIATED CLUBS from any and all liability for property damage or personal injury suffered by myself or by a third party as a result of my participation in, and/or travel to or from, the Competitions.

I have read and understood this Waiver prior to signing it and am aware that by signing this document, I am accepting the terms of this Waiver and am thereby affecting the legal rights and liabilities of myself, my family, administrators and assigns in relation to PENATHLON CANADA, PENTATHLON ALBERTA and AFFILIATED CLUBS. I confirm that I am over the age of majority in my Province.

I agree to take due care or otherwise to repair or replace, at own expense, any damaged equipment made available for use at the event. Repairs must be completed by a Pentathlon Alberta-selected expert or replacement equipment must be comparable and meet the specifications and purposes as set out by Pentathlon Alberta and Affiliated Clubs.

(For those under the age of majority in their Province) I understand that my parent or guardian is required to sign this Waiver before I can participate in any competition under the auspices of Modern Pentathlon
