ASSUMPTION OF RISKS:  Physical activity, by its very nature, carries with it certain dangers and risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the great care taken to prevent or minimize harm. JR7 SOCCER, LLC d/b/a JR7 SOCCER (hereafter, “JR7 SOCCER”) operates an Elite Soccer Training & Mentorship program and other supplemental and ancillary soccer training programs and clinics (hereafter collectively, the JR7 SOCCER PROGRAM) that involves a significant level of physical activity.  The JR7 SOCCER PROGRAM is for the sport of soccer and related activities such as strength training, running and other aerobic activities. Some of these activities involve strenuous exertions of strength using various muscle groups, some involve quick movements involving speed and change of direction, some involve potential contact with equipment, fixed objects (e.g. goals), other participants (including participants that are older or younger and who may be larger or smaller in terms of weight and height) and various surfaces types, and others involve sustained physical activity that places stress on the cardiovascular and nervous systems. The specific risks vary from one activity to another, but in each activity the risks range from (1) minor injuries such as cuts, bruises, muscle strains and sprains, to (2) major injuries such as broken or fractured bones, concussion or lost teeth, to (3) catastrophic injuries, such as heart attacks or fractured skull or those that cause disfigurement, loss of mental capacity, loss of sight, speech or hearing, paralysis or death.
