PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! YOU MUST SIGN THIS DOCUMENT BEFORE YOU PARTICIPATE IN ANY MOTIONBALL FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS PROGRAMMING OR EVENTS.
BY COMPLETING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE GIVING UP LEGAL RIGHTS INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE.

The novel coronavirus ("COVID-19"), has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is known to spread mainly by contact from person to person. motionball is permitting the Participant to participate in the Activities based on the Participant’s assurances to motionball, and to the other participants, contained in this document. Any false statements could result in personal legal liability to the Participant.
COVID-19 can be transmitted by asymptomatic people and accordingly the statements made by other participants cannot provide certainty that the virus will not be transmitted. motionball is taking prudent steps to impose and enforce appropriate protocols to keep staff and participants safe, but there can be no assurances that the virus will not be contracted by you, staff or other participants. This is a risk that each participant must assess for themselves, and if they choose to participate, they take the risk of either contracting the virus or transmitting it to others.
By clicking the “I Agree” checkbox below, completing and submitting this Agreement, the Participant is confirming that they agree with and declare the following:
I hereby declare that I acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and I voluntarily assume the risk that I could be exposed or infected by COVID-19 by participating in the Activities.

If I or anyone in my household experience any cold or flu-like symptoms after submitting this Agreement, including within 14 days of the date upon which the Activities take place, then I will then not participate in the Activities. This Agreement will remain in effect until motionball declares the requirements in this Agreement are no longer in effect.
I agree to comply, at all times, with the public health regulations, requirements and recommendations of Federal, Provincial, Municipal and all other governmental authorities as well as with all public health and safety protocols implemented by motionball as it relates to Covid-19 (the “Protocols”).
