I fully accept and assume all such RISKS and responsibility to the extent permitted by law for losses, costs and damages I incur as a result of my participation in the programs and the events provided by Atlanta Sport and Social Club.  THIS RELEASE AND WAIVER SHALL SERVE AS A COMPLETE RELEASE AND EXPRESS ASSUMPTION OF RISK BY THE PARTICIPANT.

Participant does hereby release and forever discharge and hold harmless Atlanta Sport and Social Club from any and all liability, claims and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from Participants participation in the sport programs offered or sponsored by Atlanta Sport and Social Club. Participant understands and acknowledges that this Release discharges Atlanta Sport and Social Club from any liability or claim that the Participant may have against Atlanta Sport and Social Club with respect to any injury, illness, or death that may result from Participant's participation in the program, whether caused in whole or in part by Participant's negligence or the negligence of Atlanta Sport and Social Club or its officers, directors, employees, or agents or otherwise.

Participant agrees that in the event that any portion of the Release is held to be invalid, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Release which shall continue to be enforceable.
 

REFUND POLICY. All registration fees are non-refundable. Registering for a team is a commitment to participate in the full season.


In some cases, we may need to delay the start of the league. This may be due to teams needing more time to complete their rosters, playing facilities having schedule conflicts and myriad other reasons. We reserve the right to delay league starts, and will incorporate all planned games into the revised schedule to the best of our ability. Delayed season starts are not grounds for a refund.


Players or teams decision not to participate in a league they have registered for is not grounds for a refund. If players or teams choose not to participate after they have registered and before the season starts, they may request a credit to use towards a future league. All requests must be submitted in writing to havefun@atlantasportandsocialclub.com.
In the case of excessive cancelled games due to weather, or any other circumstances causing a reduction in the number of games played, there will be no refund or credit for games not played. ASSC reserves the right to host games on days other than a normal day of regular season play, and at alternate times and locations from those originally designated if necessary.

 

No refunds shall be provided under these circumstances. Should a league be cancelled entirely, players always have the option to transfer to another league, or hold a credit to be used for a future season.


Refunds will only be processed in the event that Atlanta Sport and Social Club staff has to cancel a league or activity, and no alternate leagues for that sport are available. If an unforeseen circumstance should occur and we have to cancel a league, we will offer options, including a refund, to anyone directly affected by the cancellation. Refunds are processed on the last day of the month in which a player requests a refund. All refunds must be requested in writing, and will incur a $3.95 processing fee. 
 

All social event tickets are non-refundable.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Participant has read and voluntarily e- signed this Release, and further agrees that no orarepresentations, statements, or inducements apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made.
