We understand and agree that this Release will have the effect of releasing, discharging, waiving and forever relinquishing any and all actions or causes of action that we may have or have had, whether past, or future, whether known or unknown, and whether anticipated or unanticipated by me, arising out of my participation and/or receipt of instruction in water polo.  This Release constitutes a complete release, discharge and waiver of any and all actions or causes of action against Premier.
