Assumption of Risk and Indemnity
Gymnastics and all of its auxiliary and offspring programs are relatively safe activities, especially when considering the safety measures, professional equipment, and high-level training GYMNASTICS USA utilizes and partakes in. Yet, any time an activity involves height and momentum, there is a risk of minor to severe injury. In order to make our program as safe as possible, all of our staff members are required to go through our proprietary training courses which include our propitiatory Basic First Response & CPR Certificate program. The course not only trains our instructors in First-Aid but also, through our coaching certificate courses, we create scenarios of potential risk, which instills a safety conscious philosophy that is applied to our methods of instruction.
In consideration of participating in GYMNASTICS USA, I represent that I understand the nature of this Activity and I hereby for myself, my children, my heirs and executors vow that if any of the aforementioned should partake in physical activity at GYMNASTICS USA, the same shall be qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such Activity. I acknowledge that if I believe event conditions are unsafe, I will immediately discontinue participation in the Activity. I fully understand that this, similar to all other sports and activities, involves risks of bodily injury, including permanent injury, which may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, those of others participating in the event, the conditions in which the event takes place, or the negligence of the “Releasees” named below; and that there may be other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, cost, and damages I incur as a result of my participation in the Activity.
I further acknowledge, understand, appreciate and agree that my participation may result in possible exposure to and illness from infectious diseases, including, but not limited to, MRSA, Influenza, and COVID-19. While particular rules and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious illness and death does exist. I knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of the releasees or others, and assume full responsibility for my participation and exposure.
I hereby release, discharge, and covenant not to sue GYMNASTICS USA, its respective administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, and employees, other participants, any sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises on which the Activity takes place, (each considered one of the “RELEASEES” herein) from all liability, claims, demands, losses, or damages, on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the “Releasees” or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations and future agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage, or cost, which may incur as the result of such claim. Furthermore I hereby authorize GYMNASTICS USA to utilize any photography, video, or other likeness of myself for advertisement use, promotional use, training education, and/or any other reasonable purposes that GYMNASTICS USA may see fit.
