As a Player, I agree and understand:

  1. I play at my own risk. If I have not signed the registration form, I will not be covered by any insurance and I play completely at my own risk. Qualification of any team for the semi finals will depend upon validly signed and completed registration form by all teams being submitted.

  5. I must not talk to the referee unless I am the captain/delegate of a team.
  6. I must not sledge either the opposition or my own team members. This is a major offence and will result in me being sent off.

  8. I must comply with the referee’s directions and decisions at all times.
