Starting today (8/14/13), we will no longer ask anyone for paper waiver or registration or volunteer application forms (if you have not completed one for this season, this applies to you.)

By registering to participate in any of our activities, you acknowledge that you, your kids and your family and friends who come to our events (games) have read and will abide by the MHFF Code of Conduct and Accidental Waiver and Release of Liability. 

And anyone (coaches and referees and others) who volunteers to help in any way gives our nonprofit permission to conduct a background check and understands that league officials may remove you from your volunteer position if the results of the check is not satisfactory.
