As noted in our Return to Play Guidance, until COVID-19 is either eradicated or a vaccine developed, there is no way of eliminating the risk of infection. This should be clearly communicated to all participants, including players, parents and volunteers. As you develop your Return to Play programming, we recommend that you have your participants sign the waiver below before they reengage with your program as a recognition of that risk in participating.
Recommended Protocol for Waivers:
- Regions should download the waiver and send to all parents and registered volunteers.
- Ask that each sign and bring to the first practice/event/etc. and have the Safety Director collect all hard copies.
- Create a recording system to note who and who has not turned in their waivers.
- Have extra copies on hand for those that do not bring one to your event.
