Liability Waiver 

A few years ago the Ontario Baseball Association mandated that associations should include the following waiver in their Player registration forms. Port Dover Minor Baseball has included the waiver for a number of years. The waiver has now been included into the 'Tournament Registration form' and more recently a new 'Winter and fall ball practice registration form'.

When anyone completes a registration form ( Player, Tournament or Winter Fall Ball practice) that person is acknowledging and agreeing to the waiver.
