ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY RELATING TO CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely dangerous and is believed to be spread from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state and local governments and health agencies recommend established guidelines to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. These include requiring social distancing and, in many locations, prohibiting the congregation of large groups of people. These guidelines are for the safety of the public and should be followed. Notwithstanding recommendations and guidelines by these entities, it must be understood that COVID-19 is a continuing threat. Big Ticket Sports LLC d.b.a. Kick It 3v3 (the “Company”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, it is understood that the Company cannot guarantee that event participants or spectators will not come into contract with or become infected with coronavirus. Your mere physical presence at the Event could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting the disease. Notwithstanding the risk of infection, the undersigned, on behalf of my minor child(ren), wish to voluntarily participate in the Events offered by the Company. In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in Company programs, and related events and activities, I, and/or the minor child(ren) state as follows:
1. I understand that although the Company has taken precautions to provide proper organization, supervision, instruction, and equipment for the services being offered, it is impossible for the Company to guarantee absolute safety from infection by the coronavirus. Also, I understand that I share the responsibility for safety during all activities, and I assume that responsibility. I will make the coaching or administrative staff aware in writing of any questions or concerns regarding my understanding of safety standards, guidelines, procedures, and my ability to participate at any point during any activity. I will also take steps to ensure the health of my child(ren) before the child participates in any soccer activity.
2. I understand that risks during the Events include possible exposure to the coronavirus. In addition, risks of soccer activities include, but are not limited to loss or damage to personal property, injury, permanent disability, fatality, exposure to inclement weather, slipping, falling, insect or animal bites, being struck by falling objects, hypothermia (cold exposure), hyperthermia (heat exposure), and that severe social or economic losses that may result from any such incident. I also understand that such accidents or illnesses may occur in remote areas without easy access to medical facilities or while traveling to and from the activity sites. Further, there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. 3. I assume all the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for the damages due to such injury, permanent disability or death resulting from participation in any Company activity. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) and myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability or death), illness, damage, monetary loss, claim, liability, or expense of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s participation at the Company or Company activities (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my child(ren), I hereby release the Company, its agents, coaches, chaperones, representatives and employees from any and all claims, demands, and causes of action, whether resulting from negligence or otherwise, of every nature and in
conjunction with a Company activity as set forth on the reverse side of this Waiver. Regardless of any steps taken by the Company to reduce the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, I am fully aware that there are a number of risks associated with my child’s care at The Company during the COVID-19 pandemic, including without limitation, being exposed to and contracting COVID-19 from other individuals, surfaces and/or airborne particles. I understand that my child’s contracting of COVID-19 could result in serious medical symptoms requiring medical treatment in a hospital or even death. On behalf of myself and my child, and our heirs, successors, and assigns, I knowingly and freely, assume all such risks, both known and unknown, relating to my child’s care at The Company arising from or relating to COVID-19, including all illnesses, injuries, damages or death arising therefrom, and I hereby forever release, waive, relinquish, and discharge the Company, along with the Company’s shareholders, licensees, officers, directors, members, managers, officials, partners, trustees, agents, contractors, employees, affiliates, or other representatives, and their successors and assigns (collectively, the “the Company Representatives”), from any and all claims, demands, liabilities, rights, damages, expenses, and causes of action of whatever kind or nature, and other losses of any kind, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, (collectively, “Damages”) arising from or relating to COVID-19 as a result of my child’s care at the Company, and including but not limited to claims based on the alleged negligence of any Company Representative or any other person. I further promise not to sue the Company or any the Company Representative for any illness, injury, death or other Damages arising out of or related to COVID-19 and agree to indemnify and hold them harmless from any and all Damages resulting therefrom as a result of my child’s care at the Company. If any provision of this Waiver and Release of Liability is declared invalid, the remaining provisions remain enforceable. I may seek advice from legal counsel before signing this Waiver and Release of Liability. By signing this Waiver and Release of Liability, I acknowledge that either I have sought the advice of legal counsel or wish to waive the opportunity to seek the advice of counsel before signing.
