BeKids Toronto takes seriously the safety of the children and youth who participate in its programs. It is important that all participants and, as applicable, their parent/guardians, understand the nature of the activities involved in the programs they are registered for, and the terms and conditions upon which BeKids Toronto provides these programs. Please make sure you read this Authorization and Release Form and the Program Outlines carefully. If you have any questions about a program, you are encouraged to contact BeKids. Once you have reviewed this information, please complete this form, sign it below and provide it to the Program Leader/Instructor on the first day of the program. By signing this form, and in consideration of BeKids Toronto’s agreement to the participant into the program, you confirm and agree as parent/guardian for the participant, to accept and comply with the following terms:
Safety Policy - Participants must be delivered to their program and signed in and out by an Authorized Person(s) except in the case of Afterschool pick up where participants are picked up from their school. Only Authorized Person(s) that have been listed on a participants registration form can sign a participant in or out of a program. Alternate arrangements can be made for participants aged 12 years and older. BeKids Toronto assumes no responsibility for the care or supervision of the participant before he/she is signed in, or after he/she is signed out by the Authorized Person(s).
Please initial if you wish to authorize a minor participant aged 12 years and over to sign him/herself in or out.
By initialing above, I confirm that the participant is aged 12 years or older, and I authorize the participant to sign him/herself in and out of the program. I acknowledge that BeKids Toronto reserves the right upon verbal or written notice to withdraw this privilege, and require that the participant be signed in/out by an Authorized Person.

Disclosure of Risk - I understand that all of the sports and other programs described in the program outlines may involve indoor and outdoor activities. While it is highly anticipated that the risk arising from such activities should be relatively minor, such as the risk of scrapes, cuts, bruises, sprains, strains, possible broken bones or illness, it is possible that more serious unforeseen injuries, illness, or loss may arise from these activities, from the use of equipment or from the actions of the participants or other people, including negligent actions.
Medical Authorization - In the event of any accident or illness affecting the participant, I authorize BeKids Toronto, and it’s Program Leader/Instructors, employees and agents to authorize, on my behalf, and according to their best judgment, any procedures, including admission to hospital and any necessary treatment for the care and well-being of the participant. This authorization will be exercised only when BeKids Toronto is unable to contact me or circumstances require that immediate action be taken or care be delivered.
Condition of Participant - I have fully disclosed to BeKids Toronto any fact or circumstance known to me that might prevent the participant from being able to safely participate in the program, including all medical conditions, allergies or other conditions, and understand that I have a continuing obligation to make such disclosures for the safety of the participant.
Personal Property - I understand that participants are solely responsible for the care and security of any personal items that they take or bring with them to program activities. By signing this form, I agree that I will not hold BeKids Toronto responsible for any loss, theft or damage to my personal items and to those of the participant. Insurance coverage for personal items is optional and solely my responsibility.
Inappropriate Conduct - I understand and agree that BeKids Toronto reserves the right, at any time, immediately on notice and without any obligation to refund any program fees or expenses, to refuse to permit the continued participation in a program of any participant who acts in violation of BeKids Toronto Code of Conduct or whose continued participation endangers their own health and safety or the health or safety of any other person. I have been provided with a copy of the Code of Conduct and agree to be bound by its terms. I further understand and agree that BeKids Toronto assumes no responsibility or liability arising from any participant’s own negligent or intentional wrongful conduct or the negligent or intentional wrongful conduct of the parent/guardian of any participant.
