Urban Rec - Vancouver, Okanagan, and Australia's Sport and Social Club

Hello everyone and welcome to a new and exciting year of Urban Rec experiences. As we are entering a new year, we are asking that all of our members update their information to ensure that it is correct and also acknowledge a new waiver for 2019.

You do not have to do so at this time, but all members will be required to do this step before registering or participating in any Urban Rec Event in 2019.

By creating an Urban Rec member account you will have the choice to agree to receive periodic emails from Urban Rec that pertain to Urban Rec leagues, tournaments or events. Each e-mail promoting upcoming Urban Rec activities will provide you with the opportunity to opt out of further emails.

You will receive league specific emails for any league, tournament or event in which you are registered. These emails are a requirement of your participation in any Urban Rec league, tournament or event and you cannot opt out of these emails while you are on a team roster.

You must be at least 19 years of age in order to participate in any Urban Rec League or event.

In order to register and participate in Urban Rec sports or activities you will be required to enter into a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement, as set out below.
