RELEASE, PERMISSION, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT
Waiver. In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in the tournament, I, for myself, my heirs or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue [name of entity sponsoring tournament and/or facility where the tournament is being held], its/their officers, employees and agents from liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injuries, accidents or illnesses (including death) and property loss arising from my participation in the Tournament.
