INCLUDING ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF DESERT LIGHTS GYMNASTICS, IT'S OWNERS, OFFICEERS, AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES.
In consideration of my participation and the participation of any minor children that I am the legal guardian or parent of, I hereby release and agree not-to-sue Desert Lights Gymnastics, Desert Lights Gymnastics Board of Directors, and officers, the Desert Lights Gymnastics Booster Club, and any of their employees, teachers, coaches or agents, from any and all present and future claims resulting from ordinary negligence on the part of Desert Lights Gymnastics or others listed for property damage, personal injury, or wrongful death, arising as a result of my or my child engaging in or receiving instruction in gymnastics, cheerleading or any activities incidental thereto, wherever, whenever, or however the same may occur. I hereby voluntarily waive any and all claims resulting from ordinary negligence, both present and future, that may be made by me, my family, estate, heirs, or assigns.
Further, I am aware that gymnastics and cheerleading are vigorous sporting activities involving height and rotation in a unique environment and as such may pose a risk of injury. I understand that gymnastics, cheerleading and related activities always involve certain risks, including, but not limited to, death, serious neck and spinal injuries resulting in complete or partial paralysis, brain damage, and serious injury to virtually all bones, joints, muscles, and internal organs, and that mats, pits, and other safety equipment and apparatus provided for my protection, including the active participation of a coach or a teacher who will spot or assist in the performance of certain skills, may be inadequate to prevent serious injury. The risk of harm may be limited by all of the safety equipment and trained coaches, but never eliminated. I understand that participation in gymnastics and related activities involves activities incidental to active participation in gymnastics, including moving from event to event, conditioning, stretching and other activities which may leave me vulnerable to the reckless actions of other participants who may not have complete control over their actions or who may not see other students in the gym. I am voluntarily participating in this activity with knowledge of the risks involved and hereby agree to accept any and all inherent risks of property damage, personal injury, or death.
I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless Desert Lights Gymnastics, and all others listed for any and all claims arising as a result of my engaging in or receiving instruction in Desert Lights Gymnastics activities or any activities thereto, whenever, wherever, or however the same may occur.
I understand that this waiver is intended to be a broad and as inclusive as permitted by the laws of the state of Arizona and agree that if any portion is held invalid, the remainder of the waiver will continue in full legal force and effect. I further agree that the venue for any legal proceedings shall be within the state of Arizona.
I affirm that I am of legal age and/or the legal guardian for the minor who is attending, and am freely signing this agreement. I have read this form and fully understand that by signing this form, I am giving up legal rights and or remedies, which may be available to me for the ordinary negligence of Desert Lights Gymnastics or any other person or persons listed above.
I further authorize Desert Lights Gymnastics to the use of my name, or my minor child's name or likeness in, statements and likeness, including video and photos, without charge, for promotional purposes in publications, advertising, video, web, social media, or other formats. I hereby release you, your representative, employees, managers, members, officers, parent companies, subsidiaries, and directors, from all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with any use of said "Materials", including, without limitation, all claims for invasion of privacy, infringement of my right of publicity, defamation and any other personal and/or property rights.
