I understand that the Handball Academy's Novice Workshop is a private event, not open to members of the general public. All persons in attendance are here as our guests and must be registered on our email list. All guests must not only read and agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this Assumption of Risk Agreement with Release of Liability and Waiver, they must act in accordance with its terms at all times during the event.

The organizers, their agents and representatives expressly reserve the right to limit or to terminate completely the ability of any guest to participate in some or all of the activities related to the event or in the event at all, at any time, for any reason including but not limited to violation of any part of this agreement.

DEFINITIONS. “Released parties” includes those individuals and organizations set forth in the paragraph captioned “EXEMPTION FROM LIABILITY,” below. “Premises” includes the event venue, its parking lots, outbuildings, walkways, common areas, easements surrounding or leading to the event venue. "Organizers" include Handball Academy, its officers and directors, Shockwave Kollektiv, LLC, Larry R. Shockey, Loy Proffitt, their agents, employees, volunteers and representatives.

UNDERSTANDINGS. I know what fisting is. I am aware of and understand the risks associated with fisting. Those risks include the risk of infection of various sexually transmitted infections including HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), hepatitis A, B, hepatitis C, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and others. I understand that these sexually transmitted infections carry risk of substantial, long term personal risk of harm which can result in death if not treated. I understand the safer sex precautions which are designed to substantially reduce the risk of these and all sexually transmitted diseases.

THIS IS A SAFER-SEX, DRUG FREE EVENT. I understand that condoms, gloves, and solutions for the cleaning of equipment used in association with fisting are provided for my use at no charge to me. I also understand there is a risk of physical injury from tears to the walls of my colon and that colon punctures and tears are a risk which is associated with fisting, in addition to those risks described above. I understand that the use of recreational drugs may increase the risk of injury due to my decreased ability to make sound decisions regarding my safety. I understand that the use of recreational drugs, including alcohol to excess, is strongly discouraged by the Organizers.

I understand that if I am found to be in violation of the drug policy set forth above, I may be asked by the organizers to leave the premises. In that event, I will comply with all instructions of the organizers. If that occurs, I will not be entitled to a refund of any sort from anyone for any monies paid by me to attend this event including but not limited to lodging, attendance fees, and transportation costs.

PART 3 OF 4.

EQUIPMENT USAGE. I understand that various pieces of equipment have been made available for my use during this event. I agree that I will not use any piece of equipment that I am not familiar with unless and until I have sought and obtained proper instruction in its safe use. I also agree that I will not use any equipment until I have satisfied myself that it is safe for me to use. In the event I observe any potential safety hazard, whether it is related to the fitness for use of a particular piece of equipment, or to general conditions related to the safety of the premises, that I will immediately bring that condition to the attention of the Organizers.

VOLUNTEERS. I understand that all participants, including me, may volunteer to assist with the event. I agree to follow all instructions given by event volunteers without argument.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK. I understand and acknowledge that fisting and other activities related to this event have inherent dangers that no amount of care, caution, preparation, or expertise can eliminate, and I expressly and voluntarily assume all risk of harm of any kind, including but not limited to emotional harm, personal injury, infection, disease, or death sustained as a result of participating in this event, whether or not caused by the negligence of the released parties listed below in the paragraph headed “EXEMPTION FORM LIABILITY,” below. I understand that such consequences may result not only from my own actions, inactions, or negligence, but may be caused by the actions, inactions, or negligence of others, the procedures and techniques of play, the conditions of the premises, or because of equipment.

I VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISK, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, OF INJURIES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHILE ON THE PREMISES, WHETHER USING THE FACILITIES OR NOT, EVEN IF CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY THE ACTION, INACTION, OR NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
