IMPORTANT COVID-19/PANDEMIC DISCLAIMER INFORMATION:
No one knows what the future of elementary/youth sports and fitness holds. Security at mass sporting events changed with 9/11 and with the Boston Bombing incident. We have learned to deal with and respect that. Now with the advent of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we anticipate that elementary/youth sports and fitness activities will not return to pre-2021 standards for quite some time. This too, must be dealt with and respected.
We aim to provide enjoyable, healthy, and safe programs. However, when dealing with people (especially kids) and with a global pandemic, it is challenging. Anyone registering for and attending our events (or your child attending) must realize that he or she must be held accountable for his or her actions and reactions. The Grove City Athletics Club must also be responsible and abide by restrictions set by our club, coaches, community, and government.
By continuing yourself or permitting your child to continue in Grove City Athletics Club programs, you acknowledge the health/safety risks outlined during registration AND for you and your child possibly contracting COVID-19, which can result in severe illness and death. COVID-19 is a communicable disease and can also spread easily to others should you or your child become infected. More info here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus . I further agree to abide by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendations for the prevention of the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and other communicable diseases, and I attest to having read the CDC’s guidance at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html . In addition, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 and/or other communicable diseases by participating in any activities associate with the club. I acknowledge that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 in connection with my or my household member's participation in any club activities, and personally assume this risk.
If you feel that the health risk of you or your child attending any of our programs/events is greater than the anticipated benefit, we request that you do not register or attend the program/event. If state mandated guidelines change before or during any of our programs to the extent that they must be cancelled, your entry and processing fees will not be refunded. We have club expenses coming into our programs and it must be realized that it is a risk that you must take when registering you or your child.
Participants will be required to follow safety protocols set forth by the volunteer coaching staff, including but not limited to non-contact forehead infrared thermometer checks, using hand sanitizer, wearing masks when directed, etc. The Grove City Athletics Club also reserves the right to limit numbers at practices, change practice dates/times, or cancel programs with no full or partial refunds.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions, we had to limit participants within our elementary programs in 2020. Since 2012 (previously called the “Grove City Running Club”), we have never had to do this, but it was for the safety of you and our children. The last thing we want to do is cancel, but please be cognizant that some things just may be out of our control. Thank you! By registering for yourself, and/or others in your household, you assume these risks.
