The City of Kelowna has asked that all COYSA participants be aware of, and accept, the following waiver in order for any player to enter onto the fields. This waiver DOES NOT mean that the soccer season will proceed - we are still waiting on ViaSport and BC Soccer to move into a phase of play that allows for physical contact.
Please read the following points below - if you accept this waiver, no further action is required at this point. If you decline this waiver, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will process a registration cancellation for your child(ren).
By registering my child and having them participate in COYSA programs I understand, confirm and agree to the following:
a) Participants understand the risks and will share information related to COVID-19 with all of the league participants and members.
b) Participants are providing informed consent or assumption of risk with regards to all points below:
1) Public Health Requirements
I agree to comply with all rules and regulations from the City of Kelowna, Provincial Health Officer, Interior Health Authority ,Provincial/National Sport Organizations, WorkSafe BC and any other authority or law designed to reduce the potential of contracting or transmitting COVID-19. Further, I agree to meet changing or new COVID-19 regulations as the regulations are subject to change from the date of the rental booking to the date of the rental occurring.
Common COVID-19 measures to reduce the potential of contracting or transmitting the virus, include:
The Agreement Holder (Organizer) is responsible to collect and retain the first and last names and telephone number or email address of every patron who attends the event. This information will be retained by the Organizer for thirty days in case there is a need for contact tracing, in which case the information must be provided to the Medical Health Office. After thirty days, the Organizer must destroy the information.
2) Informed Consent
I understand the COVID-19 public health requirements and will follow all appropriate health & safety measures as communicated by BCSA, COYSA and KYSA. I acknowledge that COVID-19:
By participating in/at City services and facilities, I understand that I will be at risk of contracting COVID-19 despite any precautions taken by me or City staff. It is my responsibility, not that of program or facility staff, to understand my current health and limitations and to take appropriate additional precautions as required. I also understand that if infected, I could be at risk of transmitting the virus to others and that this might occur before my own sickness has become evident. I acknowledge the contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus and the public health authority’s preventative measures to reduce the spread. I further acknowledge the terms & conditions, guidelines and requirements that the City of Kelowna has put in place to mitigate risk to rental/league participants, members of the public and staff.
