We, the staff of Gym Kids, Inc., recognize our obligation to make our students, parents, and guardians aware of the risk and hazards associated with gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, dance, physical conditioning and even "Parent/child or Guardian/child supervision" of preschoolers at Gym Kids, Inc. Gym Kids Inc. students and even supervising parents may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious, or catastrophic in nature. Gymnastics, tumbling, dance, stretching, cheerleading, stunting, running, jumping, sprinting, physical conditioning, trampoline exercise as well as walking on the uneven surfaces and participation in parent child classes can be dangerous and can lead to injury. Parents should be aware and make their children aware of the possibility of injury and encourage their children to follow all written, posted and verbal safety rules, progressions, and Gym Kids, Inc. coaches' instructions.
Gym Kids, Inc., its coaches and other staff members, will not accept responsibility for injuries sustained by any student or parent during the course of gymnastics or cheerleading instruction classes, tumbling, dance, conditioning, exercise, cheerleading, stunting, running, open gyms, or in the course of any exhibition, competition, or clinic or while traveling to or from any event. I fully understand that the Gym Kids, Inc. staff members are not physicians or medical practitioners of any kind.
With the above in mind, and being fully aware of and appreciating the risks and possibility of injury involved including the risk of catastrophic injury, paralysis, and even death, as well as other damages and losses associated with participation or supervision in gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, stunting, open gym, exhibition, activities, clinic, or competition, in which he or she may participate or while traveling to or from any event, I consent to have my child/ren participate in the programs offered by Gym Kids, Inc.
I hereby release Gym Kids, Inc. and Gym Kids staff members to render temporary first aid to my child/ren in the event of any injury or illness, and if deemed necessary by the Gym Kids, Inc. staff members to seek medical help, or call a doctor, including transportation by a Gym Kids staff member and/or its representatives, whether paid or volunteer, to any healthcare facility or hospital, or the calling of an ambulance for said child should it be deemed necessary.
I, my executors or other representatives, agree that Gym Kids, Inc. and the sponsor of any Gym Kids, Inc. event, along with the employees, agents, officers, and directors of these organizations shall not be liable for any losses or damages occurring as a result of my or my child's participation, except where such loss or damage is the result of the intentional or reckless conduct of one of the organizations or individuals identified above. I, my executors or other representatives waive and release all rights and claims for damages that I or my child may have against Gym Kids, Inc. and/or its representatives whether paid or volunteer.
I also affirm that I now have and will continue to provide proper hospitalization, health, and accident insurance coverage which I consider adequate for both my child's protection and my own protection.
