Safe Sports Act

The Company adheres to the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 (“The Safe Sports Act”) and, as such, requires you to be at least 18 years of age in order to purchase the Program. You may read more about the Safe Sports Act here: https://www.usef.org/forms-pubs/wp2f3YLrbAw/attachment-e---safe- sport-policy

By purchasing and accessing the program, you agree and acknowledge that you are at least 18 years old. Adults purchasing the program and providing the materials to a minor assume full responsibility for any and all results of such access. Under no circumstances whatsoever shall the Company be held liable for the acts of the minor as a result of having access to the Program including any situation or circumstance whereby the Company learns that a minor has improperly accessed the Program, whether by and through their legal guardian or other means. By purchasing and accessing the Program, the Purchaser agrees and acknowledges that they are at least 18 years of age. Purchaser further assumes all risk and responsibility associated with the purchase of the Program and agrees to release and hold Company harmless from any injury or harm arising from the purchase.

Purchaser understands and agrees that all adult coaches, trainers, and employees of the Company (over the age of 18) are required to comply with the mandatory policies and

provisions as promulgated by the U.S. Center for SafeSport pursuant to the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017. Therefore, any one-on-one meetings, communications, or interactions between all adult trainers, coaches, and/or employees of the Company with a minor athlete are prohibited except under emergency circumstances and unless such one-on-one meeting or interaction occurs when another adult is present and where such interaction can be observed at an interruptible distance from another adult.

Furthermore, Purchaser agrees that individual training sessions between any and all trainers, coaches, and/or employees of the Company are permitted only if the training session is observable and interruptible by another adult unless permission for such individual training session is obtained from the minor’s legal guardian by said adult. Such permission must be obtained at least every 6 months and parents, guardians, and other caretakers must be allowed to observe the individual training session.

Purchaser also understands that adult trainers, coaches, and/or employees of the Company are further prohibited from interacting one-on-one with minor athletes in settings outside of the Program when such one-on-one interactions are not observable and interruptible by another adult unless a parent or legal guardian has provided permission for each out of Program one-on-one contact.

Last, Purchaser agrees that another trainer, coach, or employee of the Company, or a minor’s parent or legal guardian must be copied on all electronic communication (including social media) between any trainer, coach, or employee of the Company and a minor athlete, whether directed to one minor athlete or multiple minor athletes. Communication directed from a minor athlete to a trainer, coach, or employee of the Company will not be responded to unless the communication complies with this provision.

The Company is agreeing only to provide Purchaser with access to the Program, which provides only education, and information related to its subject matter. The information contained in the Program, including any interactions with the instructors, is not intended as, and shall not be understood or construed as, professional advice, training, schooling, teaching, or instruction.

You agree to take full responsibility for any harm or damage you suffer as a result of the use, misuse, or non-use, of the information available in the Program. You agree to use judgment and conduct due diligence before taking any actions or implementing any plans or policy suggested by or recommended in the Program by the Company, its owners and employees.
