Player Agreements

ARTICLE 1 | The Agreement

I, the individual participating in a Commonwealth Leagues United (“CLUnited”) summer collegiate baseball league, either Lewis & Clark Baseball League (“LCBL” or Thin Air Baseball League (“TABL”) (hereafter, “a CLUnited league”) during Summer 2016, and, if necessary due to my age of minority, mental incapacity, or any other reason, my parent(s) and/or guardian(s), third-party registrant(s), or anybody else who is contracting on my behalf (individually or collectively, “I”) in regards to my participation in CLUnited league, hereby agree to play baseball in CLUnited league during the Summer of 2016.

I understand this season shall commence on or around May 25, 2016 and conclude on or around August 10, 2016, and I commit myself to its entirety. I hereby certify that all the information contained herein accurate, and I have status as an amateur player.

I further certify that I am eligible to play as determined by the NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA, and/or any other applicable collegiate certification body, including the conference of which my college/university is a member.

In so doing, I agree to pay the 2016 Registration Fee (“Reg Fee”) in full, plus any applicable taxes, fees, or the like, and agree to participate in the fundraising program administered by CLUnited. If I wish to pay with cash, I must do so via a bank debit card bearing Visa or MasterCard and acknowledge that paper checks or actual money will not be accepted.

Through this contract I commit myself to play baseball in a CLUnited league during the 2016 summer season. I also agree to pay my Reg Fee by May 15, 2016, via either: (a) one lump sum payment; or (b) via a series of structured payments over several months (“installment plan”). I understand that the installment plan will require me to pay more than the lump sum payment in order to cover associated costs and fees incurred by CLUnited league, and I understand and accept that I am obligated to pay the entire Reg Fee even if I decide to no longer play baseball in CLUnited league during Summer 2016 for any reason or no reason at all.

Further, I acknowledge that I have read, and I understand and accept, CLUnited’s “Refund/Deregistration Policy” contained in a separate document, but incorporated into this contract. In summary, this policy explicitly states that CLUnited cannot and will not issue refunds except on a rarely employed medical exemption, and that even if I elect, for whatever reason or no reason, not to play in a CLUnited league in 2016, or cannot play, for whatever reason or no reason, in a CLUnited league in 2016, I will still pay the totality of my Reg Fee. This is true whether I play one, all, or no games.

I also agree to pay an Apparel Fee, should my team so require, no later than March 15, 2016. I hereby expressly permit CLUnited to charge, debit, withdraw, and/or transact (as may be appropriate) my credit card, check card, bank account, or other payment method provided during this registration process, for this Apparel Fee up to $350 in the event that I fail to pay the fee by the stated deadline.

If I fail to pay the Reg Fee, or I fail to pay the Reg Fee by the established deadlines, I agree to incur a penalty of twenty (20) percent per month (cumulative), and that I expressly permit CLUnited to submit my non-payment for collection and/or subject the non-payment to the judicial process.

I hereby acknowledge, understand, and agree that my participation in a CLUnited league is at my own cost and risk, and that I am not entitled to any compensation or remuneration, of any nature, for any reason related to my participation. I also agree to abide by the CLUnited Handbook or a CLUnited league handbook, of which I will receive a copy of electronically before the commencement of the summer season. This will require me, amongst other things, to take proper care of my uniform and other equipment that is issued to me and return it to the proper team officials upon request. I understand this Handbook, upon its publication and delivery to me, is hereby incorporated into this contract.

I hereby grant permission to any CLUnited or CLUnited league Official, Officer, Manager, Coach, Trainer and/or Medical Staff to obtain medical care for me from Miller Orthopedics, emergency medical personnel, or a hospital and/or medical clinic in the event that I am injured or become ill while involved in any capacity with CLUnited league games. I also certify that I possess medical insurance, and/or accept full financial responsibility for any and all medical care consumed by me, whether voluntary or not, as a result of participating in the CLUnited league.

Additionally, I agree that, should I so require sports medical attention from May 25, 2016 until August 10, 2016, I will in ALL cases where I suspect I have a baseball-related injury, seek sports medical attention from Miller Orthopedics in Chesterfield, Mo., unless Miller Orthopedics refers me to another medical provider that may include a sports medicine provider with whom I have an ongoing relationship.

I, my parents and/or guardians, and my heirs and assigns, hereby agree to release, absolve, indemnify and hold harmless CLUnited, its leagues, my team, national affiliation organization, and any other individual, entity, and/or facility directly involved in CLUnited from any claim arising out of any injury, accidents, or loss arising from negligence on the part of my team, CLUnited, a CLUnited league, or any individual, entity, and/or facility involved with CLUnited.

I also hereby acknowledge, understand, and accept that CLUnited might require me to sign additional waivers, statements, and agreements and/or other similar documents governing my participation in a CLUnited league, and expressly agree that I will expeditiously do so upon CLUnited’s request. If I fail to sign such documents when proffered to me, I understand I will be ineligible to participate in a CLUnited league and waive any recollection of my Reg Fee.

ARTICLE II | Acknowledgements and Agreements

Just so this is clear, I understand and accept CLUnited league’s Refund Policy.                 

I also agree to register or that have registered with CLUnited clunited.org.
