Unified Sports® Partner Form

Unified Partner Form

Application for Participation in Special Olympics
  • Section A - Partner Information

  • All Unified Partners 16 years of age and older must have a valid Class A Volunteer form, Protective Behaviors Training, and Concussion Awareness Trainings. Unified Partners 15 and younger must have a valid Class A Volunteer form on file with Special Olympics Illinois. Please note that this form is ONLY to be used by Class A Volunteers who have been approved previously, but did not fill out the Class A as a Unified Partner, and therefore did not agree to the Release and Waiver of Liability that a Unified Partner assumes. If you have NOT filled out a Class A Volunteer form then you MUST complete that instead. The link to complete a Class A Volunteer form is: Class A Volunteer Form

  • Special Olympics Release and Waiver of Liability:

    In consideration of participating in Special Olympics Unified Sports®, I represent that I understand the nature of the event and that I (and/or my child) am (are/is) qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in Unified Sports® events. I fully understand the event involves risks of serious bodily injury which may be caused by my own actions or inactions, by the actions of others participating in the event, or by conditions in which the event takes place. I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, costs, and/or damages I (and/or my minor child) may incur as a result of my (and/or my minor child's) participation. I acknowledge that at any time that if I (we) feel that the event conditions are unsafe, I (and/or my minor child) will discontinue participation immediately.

    If during my participation in Special Olympics activities I should need emergency medical treatment and I (and/or my minor child) am (are/is) not able to give my consent for or make my own arrangements for that treatment because of my injuries, I authorize Special Olympics to take whatever measures are necessary to protect my health and well-being, including, if necessary, hospitalization.

    I (and/or my minor child) release, indemnify, covenant not to sue, and hold harmless Special Olympics, its administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, employees, and other Unified Sports® participants, and sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, any owners and lessors of premises on which the activity takes place from all liability, any losses, claims (other than that of the medical accident benefit), demands, costs, or damages that I (and/or my minor child) may incur as a result of participation in Unified Sports® events and further agree that if, despite this 'Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption Risk, and Indemnity Agreement,' I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releases, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the Releases from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damage or cost which may incur as a result of such claim.
