Risk & Waiver of Liability for KIVA Sports Center
Risk and Waiver of Liability
For Athletic Participation
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person and surface to person contact, including individuals without disease symptoms. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people in addition to wearing personal protective equipment.
The health and well-being of our coaches, staff, and athletes remains our top priority. In order to minimize the risk of COVID-19 entering our environment and spreading among our community, we will only allow coaches and staff assigned to work and participating students to be in our facility. Parents wishing to remain on site can use outdoor common areas or the parking lot to wait for their child. Athletes waiting to attend a session will need to wait outside while maintaining social distancing from others. No person presenting symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19 shall be allowed to enter or remain on the property at any point.
Furthermore, all participants in sponsored activities at KIVA Sports Center must agree to abide by KIVA Sports guidelines.
KIVA Sports Center (hereafter referred to as the “KSC”) has put in place numerous preventative measures and enhanced cleaning protocols to reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19 in our facilities. However, KSC cannot guarantee that you or your child will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending sponsored activities at KSC could increase your risk and your childs risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I agree to allow my child to participate in athletic activities offered by KIVA Sports Center and acknowledge my child is fit for the activity in which he/she is attending. In addition, by signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily agree to the participation terms described above and assume the risk that my child, my guests, and I may be exposed to or infected by the COVID-19 while at KSC and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death.
I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at KSC may result from the actions or omissions of myself and others, including, but not limited to, KSC coaches, employees, volunteers, program participants, and their families. I voluntarily agree to indemnify a hold harmless KSC and personally assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that my daughter, my guests or I may experience or incur in connection with our attendance at KSC or participation in KSC programming.
On my behalf, and on behalf of my child, I hereby release, discharge, covenant not to sue, and hold harmless KSC, its employees, agents, owners and representatives, of and from any and all liability for any injuries, illness, and loss, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs, or expenses of any kind arising out of, directly or indirectly, from my child’s or children’s participation in KIVA Sports Center programs.
All claims and disputes arising under or relating to this Agreement are to be settled by binding arbitration, and not by a jury trial, in the commonwealth of Kentucky or another location mutually agreeable to the parties. An award of arbitration may be confirmed in a court of competent jurisdiction.
I understand and agree that this release includes all Claims based on the actions or, omissions, of the KSC, its employees, coaches, agents, owners and representatives, whether COVID -19 related or not, and whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation or presence in any KSC activity or in any KSC facility.
By Selecting “I agree” and typing my name, on this acknowledgement and assumption of risk and release as the parent/guardian, I am consenting to my child’s participation and acknowledge that I understand any and all risk, whether known or unknown.
