Participation in any athletic activity may involve injury of some type to either yourself or a fellow athlete.

The severity of such injury can range from minor cuts, scrapes, or muscle strains to catastrophic injury, such as complete paralysis, or even death. Such injury can impair one’s general physical and mental health and hinder one’s future ability to earn a living, to engage in other business, social, or recreational activities, and generally to enjoy life.

In addition, its purpose is to make you aware that as an athlete, or as a parent or guardian of an athlete, it is your responsibility to learn about and/or to inquire of coaches, physicians, or other knowledgeable persons about any concerns that you might have at any time regarding athletic safety.
I have read the above ASSUMPTION OF RISKS AND RELEASE FORM. I release the Malcolm Youth Sports Association and the YMCA (when applicable) and all of its coaches from all claims on account of any injuries or illnesses, including COVID-19, which may be sustained by me/my child while participating in the above sponsored activity. If medical attention is required for injury or illness while participating in such activity, as parent/guardian I give my permission for such medical care.
