COVID-19 DISCLOSURE, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT & WAIVER OF LIABILITY
The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many areas, prohibited the group activities.

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending GSC activities and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 may result from the act, omission, or negligence of myself or others, including, but not limited to, GSC volunteers, and other participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child (ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may incur due to GSC activity (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless GSC, its affiliated organizations, Board, volunteers, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the GSC, its affiliated organizations, Board, volunteers, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 and any mutation thereof infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any GSC program(s).

If a player or parent/guardian who has either tested positive for or knowingly has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days must not come to any session. Any player showing signs of illness will be asked to immediately leave the session.
I agree to inform GSC if I or my child(ren) knowingly come in contact with someone who tested positive of COVID-19 within 14 days prior of a GSC event. I will also inform GSC and not attend any GSC activities for 14 days if my child (ren) or I develop any symptoms associated with COVID-19, including but not limited to: cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pains, headache,
