IN CONSIDERATION of the right of the individuals whose names are printed below (including my child or ward, if applicable) (the “Participant”) to participate in the basketball clinics, training session(s), game(s), contest(s) and any other activities that will take place as part of the Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA program (including, without limitation, Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA Coaches Academies) that will be made available to Participant (collectively, the “Program”) and to enter and remain at any site(s) in which the Program occurs (including all surrounding parking areas, pedestrian plazas and entryways, the “Program Site(s)”), I hereby, (a) agree on behalf of myself, or for my child or ward, to participate in the Program and (b) on behalf of myself, my participant child or ward (if applicable), and Participant’s personal representatives, heirs, assigns, executors, administrators, next of kin, and other persons acting or purporting to act on my or their behalf (collectively, “Related Persons”), hereby acknowledge and agree as follows:

I fully understand and knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks related to Participant’s participation in the Program and traveling to, entrance to, and presence at any Program Site(s), which may include an increased risk of exposure to illness (including, without limitation, COVID-19), personal injury, disability, other short-term or long-term health effects and/or death, which might result not only from my own actions, inactions or negligence, but from the actions, inactions or negligence of any of the Released Parties (as defined below). I accept personal responsibility for any and all damages, liability, and other losses that I, Participant or any of the Related Persons may incur in connection with the foregoing risks.
