i just bought my kids a trampoine and before we allow other kids to jump on it we want them to sign a waiver protecting us from any responibilies of any injuries that may accure while they are at our home jumping on or around the trampoline. will this waiver protect us in court if it came to that?

If you have the parents of the children sign it, the waiver will go a long way to protect you.
The waiver is no guarantee that you won't be held liable but it could help to protect you and it could be a deterrent to a claim if a child is injured on the trampoline. Be sure to have the waiver signed by the parents. You may wish to have the waiver prepared by or at least reviewed by an attorney. You can probably find some sample waiver forms on the internet to help you get started with the wording.
