Players and Parents/Guardians are advised to carefully read the Disclaimer, Risk Warning, Helmets and Safety and Privacy statements below before booking as they affect your legal rights and those of the applicant player.

You should be aware that there are risks of injury associated with playing Baseball/Softball, as there are with most sports. Risk will arise in the context of the activities of batting, pitching, catching and fielding. While RBI aim to minimise risks, it is not possible to eliminate them all. On some occasions, an injury can be serious (such as torn ligaments, dislocations, back injuries, concussion or broken bones). In very rare cases the injury can be life threatening or result in permanent disability. If a participant has a pre-existing injury, participating in a sporting activity could result in an exacerbation of that injury. It is also strongly recommended by RBI that personal insurance be taken out by participants. On booking the participant also gives permission for RBI to arrange any medical attention that may be required, including ambulance transport and agree to pay all medical costs incurred by him/her.
On booking you as the player or the players parent/guardian acknowledge and understand the risk warning and exclusion of liability on this Disclaimer and give permission for the participant registering to participate in the above activity/training/game/event.
On booking, you as the player or the players parent/guardian hereby agree that RBI, its officers, officials and/or members shall not be liable, whether in contract, tort or statute for any injury, illness, loss or damage or other mishap to you/your child or your/your child’s property arising out of, or in any way directly or indirectly connected with your/your child’s participation in any event, match, competition, practice or training and will at all times indemnify and keep fully indemnified RBI from and against all actions, suits, causes of action, proceedings, claims, demands, costs and expenses whatsoever which may be taken or made against RBI arising out of any such injury, illness, loss, damage or other such mishap to you/your child or your/your child’s property.
HELMETS AND SAFETY
The wearing of a helmet and appropriate safety equipment is compulsory for all players while batting and fielding within close proximity of the batter (when applicable). RBI and supplies helmets, in doing so RBI does not accept any responsibility for incidents arising out of allegations concerning the fit of the helmet and/or protector, or for any hygiene factor. It is recommended that players and/or parents having any concerns regarding helmets and/or protectors should purchase such from a recognised supplier and ensure that the purchase meets Australian Standards.
In addition, RBI expects all players to take responsibility for their own safety by observing instructions, rules and guidelines, by wearing compulsory safety equipment when applicable and by behaving in a safe and responsible manner towards other participants, officials, property and grounds.
Unless otherwise notified on booking, you as the player or the players parent/guardian agree to your/your child’s name/photo being published in RBI newsletters, RBI website, RBI social media and local newspapers for the sole purposes of acknowledgement and commendation only. Information supplied on the booking form will be used for RBI administration purposes only. The information provided will not be used for marketing purposes or passed to any third parties without your consent.
