Communications and Training
This COVID-19 Preparedness Plan was communicated to CYS Directors and coaches and necessary training was provided prior to the first training session. Additional communication and training will be ongoing and provided to all who did not receive the initial training.
Assumption of Risk
Crossfire Youth Sports (the “Club”) has established increased preventative and safety measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Employees and representatives of the Club are committed to training athletes in a healthy and safe manner, which includes the enforcement of new guidelines of physical distancing and hygiene standards.
Even with our best efforts to create a safe and healthy training environment, the Club cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not be exposed to or infected by the COVID-19 virus or any other infectious disease. By voluntarily choosing to participate in Club sponsored training, you assume the risk of infection with the COVID-19 virus and other serious communicable diseases.
Therefore, in consideration for the Club facilitating athletic opportunities for you/your child(ren) during and after this pandemic, you hereby agree to, on behalf of yourself, your child(ren), and your collective heirs, assigns and executors, assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 and other infectious diseases while participating in the Club’s programs, and you hereby waive all claims against Crossfire Youth Sports, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, volunteers, agents, affiliates and guests (collectively “CYS”) for any and all sickness, harm, death, damage or loss, including all related costs, associated with your (in the case of athletes) or your child(ren)’s participation in CYS programs and you hereby release, discharge and otherwise agree to indemnify CYS for all claims or actions of any nature whatsoever arising out of your or your child(ren)’s participation in CYS programs. Further, you agree that you recognize there may be times that CYS will need to evaluate the risks associated with engaging in competitive play with another player or team or competing in a particular location. In light of this understanding, you, on behalf of all of the aforementioned parties, agree to fully release, discharge and indemnify CYS for all claims or actions associated with CYS’s decision either to participate or not to participate in competition that may give rise to an increase in risk of contracting COVID-19 or other infectious diseases.
Finally, you are confirming that you understand that if you (in the case of athletes), or your child(ren) participating in the Club’s programs, have any underlying health condition that would put you/them at a higher risk than the general population for serious complications associated with COVID-19 or other infectious diseases, that the Club encourages you to stay home, and that if you or your child(ren) choose to participate despite being at higher risk, you/they do so at
your/their own risk. You also hereby agree that if you, or your child(ren), exhibit any symptom consistent with the corona virus as published by the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”), that you/they will not participate in Club activities until such time as you/they are no longer contagious, per CDC guidelines. You further agree that if you, or your child(ren), test positive for COVID-19 or are in direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, that you will immediately notify the Club so it can take appropriate action to communicate with those who may have had contact with you/them. You also consent to having an athletic trainer, or medical professional provide you (in the case of athletes), or your child(ren), with emergency medical treatment and you agree to be financially responsible for the cost of such treatment.
