*READ BEFORE SIGNING*
In past years, Babe Ruth League, Inc. and Exeter Jr. Baseball and Softball League, Inc. (EJBSL) has required participants registering for its youth sport activities to sign a general Waiver and Liability Release. This year, EJBSL will require all family members of participants, whether participating in on field activities or spectating, or even just living or associating with EJBSL participants to read, understand and sign this agreement for all the purposes stated below.

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. It is believed that an individual can be infected with COVID-19 without their knowledge and be asymptomatic. EJBSL will take preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but our pandemic circumstances require that anyone and everyone related to and coming in contact with participants assume personal responsibility. EJBSL cannot guarantee that signers and minor children listed in this agreement, nor anyone else will not become infected with COVID-19, including family members, relatives and/or guests. Participation in an EJBSL athletic sports program(s), related event, or activity, could increase the risk of contracting COVID-19.

In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in EJBSL athletic sports programs, related events and activities (collectively referred to herein as the “activity” or “activities”), the undersigned, for themselves and as parents/legal guardians of the following named minor children, whether activity participants, spectators and/or family members, attest that they have read and understand this Waiver and Release of Liability Agreement, and agree to it.

2. Acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISK for myself, and all the above listed minor children that I/they may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in an EJBSL related event or activity, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death to myself, my spouse, child(ren), guests, unborn child, and/or relatives; and
