PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS & WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
ASSUMPTION OF RISK RELATING TO CONTAGIOUS DISEASES

Contagious diseases including any viral or bacterial disease such as COVID-19, SARS, MRSA or any communally contagious disease as defined by the CDC and/or any recognized public health authorities are extremely dangerous and are often spread from person-to-person contact, including individuals without disease symptoms. As a result the federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies at times recommend social distancing and will, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people.

VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION: I, the undersigned, acknowledge that I have voluntarily enrolled myself and/or family, (herein after referred to as “the Participant”) to participate in an athletic event run by SoCal Athletics, Inc. and/or JG Performance Fitness, Inc. (“SoCal Athletics”, “HealthWest” or the “Club”).

EXISTING RELEASE FROM VALIDITY: I acknowledge that previously signed Release of Liability and Waiver forms signed on my behalf and on behalf of my family continue to hold their full force and effect. This Waiver and Release is specific to contagious diseases and its risks.

AGREEMENT TO ABIDE: When federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend specific preventive measures all participants in sponsored activities at SoCal must agree to and abide by a set of specific conditions. I, the undersigned, and the Participant acknowledge and agree to abide by conditions including, but not limited to the following:

- Participants must use hand sanitizer prior to gym entry and throughout.
- No personal items in the gym except keys and water bottle.
- Participants must wait outside the gym prior to the start of their event.
- Bathrooms are off limits unless in an emergency.
- Participants will assist in cleaning spaces personally utilized during event.
- Parents are required to wear masks while in the gym.
- Participants must submit to temperature testing prior to participation. Any temperature over 100 degrees will disallow participation.

SoCal and HealthWest has put in place numerous preventative measures and enhanced cleaning protocols to reduce the likelihood of spreading contagious diseases in our environment; however, the Club cannot guarantee that you, the Participant, your other children, if applicable, or additional family members will not become infected with the contagious diseases. Further, attending sponsored activities at the Club could increase your risk and the risk of additional family members around you in contracting contagious diseases. Participation conditions are subject to change.

CONTAGIOUS NATURE: I acknowledge the contagious nature of diseases and voluntarily agree to the terms described above and assume the risk that the Player, my children, my family members, and I (hereafter my “Family”) may be exposed to or infected by a contagious disease by our participation and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.

ASSUMPTION OF CONTAGIOUS DISEASE RISK: I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by a contagious disease at the Club may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Club employees, volunteers, contractors and program participants and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself, the Participant, and my Family (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or the Participant or my Family may experience or incur in connection with the Participant’s attendance at the Club or participation in Club programming (“Claims”).

REPORTING OF GOOD HEALTH: I warrant and represent that myself, the Participant, and my Family are in good health and have no symptoms of sickness or illness, either which have been linked to or have not been linked to contagious diseases, and that myself, the Participant, and my Family are not aware of any exposure to other individuals who are confirmed or suspected to have a contagious disease, have contagious disease symptoms, or are awaiting test results for a contagious disease. I acknowledge and agree to report any change in the good health status of myself, the Participant, or my Family and that such reporting will terminate the ability of the Participant to participate until the health status of myself, the Participants, and my Family is determined again to be good.

HOLD HARMLESS: On my behalf, and on behalf of the Participant and my Family, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Club, its employees, agents, contractors, 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 Club, its employees, agents, contractors, and representatives, whether a contagious disease infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Club program.

KNOWING AND VOLUNTARY EXECUTION: I have carefully read this Agreement and fully understand its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability between me, SoCal Athletics, Inc., JG Performance Fitness, Inc., and/or its employees, volunteers, agents or contractors, any of its affiliate organizations, and any other contracted facilities it uses, and I acknowledge its contents and agree to the terms, conditions, and contents fully of my own free will.
