I understand that; (a) the sport of figure skating is a hazardous athletic activity; (b) participation in figure skating or related training may result in serious injury including but not limited to permanent disability, paralysis or death; (c) these risks and dangers may be caused by the acts or omissions of the officers, directors, members or agents of Eugene Figure Skating Club, the acts or omissions of other participants, accidents, breaches or contract, or other causes; (d) these risks may arise from foreseeable or unforeseeable causes.
