PLAYER WAIVERS AND PROOF OF AGE
Every player in the tournament must have a completed waiver on file before the tournament begins. The good news is that the waivers can be completed on line! No downloading, printing and filling out any paper. The waiver process takes about 2 minutes and can be done right from this website. Click on the "Liability Waiver & Medical Release" link in the menu on the left hand side of this page and follow the prompts.
In addition to player waivers, each player must show a proof of their date of birth (copy of birth certificate, passport, or state-issued ID). This is a onetime request, and players will be issued unique NDP Lacrosse identification numbers for use in future NDP tournaments. We make this request in order to assure the safety of all players, and guarantee age cutoffs in our divisions.
