Dear Athlete and if Athlete is a minor, Parent/Guardian,
The State of California recently announced that effective February 26, 2021, moderate-contact and high-contact youth and adult recreational sports may resume, including competitions, if permitted by local health authorities and if in compliance with both Los Angeles County and State requirements for these sports.
Beat the Streets Los Angeles (“BTSLA”) is taking reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, including tracking/tracing, and following applicable state and County public health orders and protocols. However, the possibility of transmission cannot be eliminated. Athletes and their families must be aware of and acknowledge the risks before participating in athletics.
By submitting this Informed Consent Agreement, you acknowledge, accept, and agree to all the following:
Participation in athletics is purely voluntary.
My child has permission to participate in athletic meetings, practices, and competitions as directed by the coaching staff.
My child will not attend meetings, practice and/or competitions if any member of their household is exhibiting one symptom(s)of COVID-19 that first appeared within the last 10 days: fever (at or over 100.4°F or 38°C) or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, feeling tired, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, congestion or runny nose, or new loss of taste or smell. My child will have their temperature checked at home prior to attending meetings, practices, and/or competitions; and my child will not attend if their temperature is at or over 100.4°F or 38°C.
My child will not attend meetings, practice and/or competitions if they or any member of their household has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has a suspected diagnosis of COVID-19 or pending COVID-19 test.
My child will not attend meetings, practice and/or competitions if they or any member of their household has spent time with another individual who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has a suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.
My child will not attend meetings, practice and/or competitions if they or any member of their household is currently under isolation or quarantine orders.
If my child tests positive for COVID-19 or has been identified as being exposed to an individual that has tested positive for COVID-19, I agree to immediately inform BTSLA and acknowledges that BTSLA must contact the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) to provide information regarding the confirmed positive test, including my child's name and contact information. I consent to the BTSLA providing such information to LACDPH or any other the administrative body as required by law. I agree to willingly cooperate with any contact tracing that is deemed necessary by BTSLA and/or LACDPH.
I am aware that my child may be exposed to COVID-19 while participating in or attending meetings, practices and/or competitions. I understand that this exposure carries a risk of infection, serious illness, or death for both my child and their household members.
I acknowledge that BTSLA, the Governor, State Department of Health, LACDPH, or other administrative body with authority over BTSLA may determine to cancel a competition or the season at any time. I also acknowledge that BTSLA must comply with any mandates issued by any entity with the authority over athletics and agree to comply with any such directives even if issued after signature to this agreement.
I and my child are aware that practices, games, spectating, and/or transportation will look different than prior years, including the need for physical distancing and the correct and consistent use of face masks. We agree to comply with the direction provided by the coaching staff and acknowledge that the failure to do so may result in my child being refused participation at practice, competitions, and/or the entire sport season.
My child is voluntarily participating in athletics. Athlete or Parent/Guardian, if the Athlete is a minor, agrees to assume any and all risks of infection, injury, or death, whether those risks are known or unknown.
I have carefully read this agreement and fully understand its contents. I am aware of the risks of my child participating in athletics during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am aware that this form contains a release of liability and waiver of all claims. I am signing this agreement voluntarily, fully aware of the risks and my release and waiver of any claim against Beat the Streets Los Angeles, its employees, agents, board members, or other related entities.
