RVC || COVID-19 Safety Procedures
and Preparedness Plan
The following policies, practices and conditions are set forth to incorporate guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment , and the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) into our daily practices at the RVC Facility.
Knowing that eliminating all risk is impossible, RVC is committed to providing an environment that is as safe and healthy as reasonably possible for all coaches, athletes and families. To that end, we have developed the following Safety Procedures and Preparedness Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continually monitor the COVID-19 pandemic; and as it evolves the below policies and procedures will be modified.
By continuing with RVC for the remainder of the 2019-20 season all adults and guardians of minors assume ALL risks associated with participation including but not limited to exposure to COVID-19. Exposure to COVID-19 can lead to temporary or permanent health consequences and death.
Club Directors, coaches, athletes and families are all responsible for implementing and complying with all aspects of the policies and procedures in this plan. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our facility, and that requires full cooperation. RVC’s staff is charged with enforcing the policies and this plan during their scheduled training times, with RVC’s directors responsible for further disciplinary actions. All athletes and guardians are required to accept and e-sign this document as assumption of risk, waiver of liability, understanding of and agreement to comply with all aspects of the below Safety Procedures and Preparedness Plan. Any violations by athletes can result in revocation of facility usage privileges with no refunds given.
Club director, or an appointed staff member, will be on site at all times to ensure compliance.

Waiver Terms & Conditions
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, including individuals without disease symptoms. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people.
The health and well-being of our staff and athletes remains our top priority. In order to minimize the risk of COVID-19 entering our environment and spreading amongst our community, we will only allow staff assigned to work and athletes scheduled to participate to be in our facility. Parents wishing to remain on site can utilize the parking lot to wait for their athlete(s). Athletes waiting to attend a session will need to wait outside while maintaining social distance from others.
Furthermore, all participants in sponsored activities at Relentless Volleyball Club must agree to and abide by the following:
Relentless Volleyball Club (hereafter referred to as the “Club”) has put in place numerous preventative measures and enhanced cleaning protocols to reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19 in Club’s facility environment; however, the Club cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending sponsored activities at the Club or while traveling to sanctioned events could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily agree to the participation terms described above and assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Club 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 the Club may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Club employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at the Club or participation in Club programming including travel tournaments (“Claims”).
On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Club, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto.
I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Club, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Club activity.
