This is a binding legal agreement.  As a Participant in the programs, activities and events of True North Hockey Canada, the undersigned acknowledges and agrees to the following terms. 


True North Hockey Canada, its directors, officers, members, employees, coaches, volunteers, officials, participants, clubs, agents, sponsors, owners/operators of the facility, and representatives (the “Organization”) are not responsible for any injury, damage or loss of any kind suffered by a Participant during, or as a result of, any program, tournament, game, hockey school, practice, activity or event, caused in any manner whatsoever including, but not limited to, the negligence of the Organization and it’s participants.

Description of Risks

In consideration of my participation in such programs, activities and events, I hereby acknowledge that I am aware of the risks and hazards associated with or related to ice hockey. The risks and hazards of ice hockey include, but are not limited to, injuries from:

  1. Exerting and stretching various muscle groups;
  2. Vigorous physical exertion, rapid movements and quick turns and stops on the ice;
  3. Strenuous cardiovascular workouts;
  4. Collisions with the hockey boards, goalie nets and ice;
  5. Being struck by hockey sticks and pucks;
  6. Physical contact with other participants, resulting in injuries to the eyes, teeth, face, head and other parts of the body, bruises, sprains, cuts, scrapes, breaks, dislocations and spinal cord injuries which may render me permanently paralyzed;
  7. Variations in ice surface;
  8. Travel to and from competitive events and associated non-competitive events which are an integral part of the Organization’s activities. 

Furthermore, I am aware:

  1. That injuries sustained in ice hockey can be severe;
  2. That True North is a Non-contact league. It is understood and accepted that body contact will occur and that some body contact is purely      accidental. Nevertheless, all players are responsible for their own actions. Body checking is strictly prohibited.
  3. That I may experience anxiety while challenging myself during the activities;
  4. That I can lessen the chance of severe injury by wearing certified protective hockey specific equipment, including but not limited to, shin pads, elbow pads, shoulder pads, helmet, hockey gloves, hockey pants, athletic support and neck guard.
  5. That despite the rules in place, violations and or accidents will occur and may result in injury; and

That my risk of injury increases as I become fatigued.

FACE SHIELDS ARE MANDATORY. All (non-Beginner Program) players must wear CSA approved facial protection. All Beginner Program players must wear full facial protection including a chin cup. This cup is the foam cup at the bottom of the face mask that protects the player from being injured by the face mask. Any player not wearing a minimum of a half visor or cage will be asked to leave the ice surface immediately and will not be permitted to return until they have the proper facial protection in place. The visor/cage must be fastened securely to the helmet as per CSA Approved Regulations with all straps firmly attached as per manufacturer’s design. If a player loses their visor/cage during the course of play, the official will immediately stop the play and allow the player to safely return to the bench to re-attach or replace the cage/visor before they are permitted to return to the game.

Release of Liability

In consideration of the Organization allowing me to participate, I agree:

  1. To assume all risks arising out of, associated with or related to my participation;
  2. To be solely responsible for any injury, loss or damage that I might sustain while participating; and
  3. To release the Organization from liability for any and all claims, demands, actions and costs including, but not limited to, breach of contract, breach of statutory duty of care or breach of the occupiers’ liability act, that might arise out of my participating, even though such risks, injuries, loss, damage, claims, demands, actions or costs may have been caused by the negligence of the Organization.
