In consideration of the Player(s) I am registering being allowed to participate in any way in the soccer programs and activities of Harvard Soccer Club, Massachusetts Youth Soccer, and/or US Youth Soccer and its member organizations, and their related events and activities (the “Programs”), by way of this registration, I acknowledge, appreciate, and agree that:
The risk of injury and illness from the activities involved in the Programs is significant, including (without limitation) the potential for injury or illness – in particular and not by way of limitation, risks of exposure, directly or indirectly, arising out of, contributed to or by, or resulting from any infectious or communicable disease, including (without limitation) the current or any future outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and/or any mutation or variation thereof – and while particular skills, equipment and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury or illness does exist. I knowingly and freely, for myself and on behalf of the below identified Player(s), assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of the Releasees or others, and assume full responsibility for my and the below identified Player(s) participation in the Programs.
I consent to the Player(s) I am registering participating in the Programs. I certify I have the authority to agree to this release on behalf of each Player I register as their parent or legal guardian.
I, for myself and on behalf of the registered Player(s), and our respective heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, hereby release, indemnify, and hold harmless Harvard Soccer Club, Massachusetts Youth Soccer and/or US Youth Soccer, its member organizations, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, associated personnel, volunteers, coaches, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers and, if applicable, owners and lessors of fields, facilities and premises utilized for the Programs (collectively, the “Releasees”), with respect to any and all injury, illness, disability, death or loss or damage to person or property associated with my or the registered Player(s) presence at, or participation in the Programs, whether arising from the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I understand and give permission for the registered Player(s) to participate in practices and games where they may be on the field with players of younger or older ages.

I understand the failure to abide by the COVID-19 policies is reason for removal from any field or facility used by Harvard Soccer Club and repeat failure to abide by the COVID19 policies by any Player(s), or his/her/their parent, guardian, or supporter, will be grounds for dismissal of Player(s) from the program. No refunds will be given in the event of a dismissal based upon any failure to abide by COVID19 policies.
By registering my player and accepting the terms of this Release, I acknowledge that I have read this release of liability and assumption of risk agreement, and fully understand its terms.
