INDIVIDUAL WAIVER, RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION OF LIABILITY
I, the undersigned, in consideration of being allowed to participate in an event or program sponsored by Mahwah Sports Performance, LLC d/b/a Stack Sports, or its related companies (all of which are referred to as “Stack Sports”), acknowledge and fully understand that I (or my child/children, as applicable) will be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury, including permanent disability and possibly death, and severe social and economic loss, which may result from my own action, inaction or negligence as well as the actions, inactions and negligence of others.

I further agree to inspect the premises and equipment before playing (or permitting my child/children to play) each game and if I deem any conditions to be unsafe, I will advise the appropriate persons and will refuse to play (or to allow my child/children to play, as applicable). I assume all of the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for any injury, illness, disability or death and any damages, whether social or economic, and hereby irrevocably agree to (and do hereby) release, waive, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless Mahwah Sports Performance, LLC d/b/a Stack Sports, its parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, partners, directors, members, managers, employees, agents, representatives, assigns and successors (hereinafter collectively the “Releasees”) from any and all liability to me, my children, my heirs and next of kin, for any and all claims, demands, suits, actions, causes of action, costs, expenses, losses, awards, judgments, injuries or damages (including reasonable attorney fees and related costs incurred by any of the Releasees) caused or alleged to have been caused by Releasees to myself or my child/children in connection with his/her/their/my participation or engagement in any Stack Sports program, league, tournament or activity.

Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/ COVID-19
I understand and acknowledge that 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. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
Stack Sports has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Stack Sports cannot guarantee that the undersigned, their child/children, or others who visit its location or who participate in any event or program sponsored by Stack Sports, will not become infected with COVID-19.
By signing below, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child/children, my family, and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Stack Sports’ premises and/or participating in an event or program sponsored by Stack Sports and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at such premises or as a result of participation or attendance at any such event or program may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Stack Sports, other attendees or participants at such event or program or their families.
I voluntarily assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any illness, injury (including but not limited to personal injury, disability, and death), damage or loss to my child(ren) or myself in connection with my or my child’s/children’s attendance and/or participation in any event or program conducted at or sponsored by Stack Sports. Without limiting the generality of the waiver, release, and indemnification described above, I hereby irrevocably release, waive, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless each of the Releasees named above from any and all liability to me, my children and my next of kin, for any and all claims, demands, suits, actions, causes of action, costs, expenses, losses, awards, judgments, injuries or damages (including reasonable attorney fees and related costs incurred by any of the Releasees) caused or alleged to have been caused as a result of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 or exposure thereto.
I further agree that I will comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations pertaining to COVID-19 (including wearing of face mask, frequent hand washing, bringing my own towel and water bottle, and any other similar requirements).
I agree that I will not attend or participate in any event or program conducted at or sponsored by Stack Sports, nor permit my child/children to do so, for at least 14 days after (i) returning from highly impacted areas subject to a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Level 3 Travel Health Notice, (ii) exposure to any person returning or traveling from areas subject to a CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice, or (iii) exposure to any person who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19. In addition, I will not attend or participate in any event or program conducted at or sponsored by Stack Sports, nor permit my child/children to do so for at least 14 days if I, my child/children or anyone else in my household (i) experience symptoms of COVID-19, including, without limitation, fever, cough or shortness of breath, or (ii) has a suspected or diagnosed/confirmed case of COVID-19. I agree to immediately notify Stack Sports if I believe that any of the foregoing restrictions apply.
