The North Shore Girls Soccer Club (NSGSC) is pleased to be providing registered children and youth participants with the opportunity to participate in our 2020/21 soccer league and development programs, which includes but is not limited to games, tournaments, practices, fitness training and all sessions, programs like COE/Development and events sponsored by NSGSC (a “Program” or “Programs”).
For those players who participated in our summer camps, this is NEW document that must be read and signed as programming elements have changed.
The purpose of this Participation Agreement is to ensure that participants and their parents/guardians are fully informed about the nature of the Program, the terms and conditions of participation and risks arising from their participation. In exchange for the opportunity to attend and participate in Programs, Parents/Guardians are required to sign and return a copy of this Participation Agreement with respect to their child. Without a Participation Agreement signed by their Parent/Guardian, a child or youth may not participate in Programs.
PLEASE REVIEW THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. BY SIGNING THIS PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU, AND YOUR HEIRS, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS AND ASSIGNS, WILL BE BOUND TO THE TERMS SET OUT BELOW.
All references in this document to “you” refer to the parent/guardian signing this Agreement below (the “Parent/Guardian”) in respect of their child (“your Child” or the “Player”).
These NSGSC Safety Rules have been developed based on guidance from the Provincial Health Officer, viaSport and BC Soccer for soccer Programs starting in September 2020 under the next phase of “Progressively Loosened” sport activity. They are designed to help mitigate the risk of infection among players. However, the effectiveness of these rules depends on the cooperation and compliance of all parents and players. Parents are expected to read and review these rules with their children prior to attending the first session. Club staff, Volunteer Coaches Team Managers and Field Monitors will be enforcing these rules at the field.
By accepting this Participation Agreement, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and will comply with the following safety rules applicable to the Programs:
*or if restrictions invoked by PHO, we may need to return to this stage at a later date
Following the initial stage of practices (on or after the week of October 5th), and where coaches feel confident in the next stage of development, practice can evolve to include limited-touch tactical training, sessions plans, and guidance will be provided at this time by NSGSC Coaches:
As much as possible, all sessions will continue to emphasize physical distancing.
You acknowledge and agree as follows:
► You have had an opportunity to review the Return to Play plan for the Program in which your Child is registered and ask questions of NSGSC staff about such Program(s).
► You consent to your Child’s participation in such Program(s) and all related activities.
► Your Child’s participation in a Program(s) is voluntary, and you understand and agree to assume any and all risks associated with his/her participation in such Program, whether or not the NSGSC has disclosed those risks to you, including the possibility of illness (including COVID 19 infection), injury, psychological injury or stress, pain, suffering, permanent or temporary disability, property or economic loss, even death and other unforeseen risks(collectively the “Losses” and each a “Loss”).
