Cheerleading is reasonably safe as long as certain guidelines are followed, but there is the inherent risk of injury as in any athletic activity. Cheerleading is an anaerobic/aerobic activity which includes, but not limited to, jumping, stunting, motions, and tumbling. Each student must inform their coach of all injuries and/or chronic conditions. Although the probability of injury is minimized if you practice correctly, there is always the possibility of one occurring. Injuries that can occur in cheerleading include, but are not limited to, the following: blisters, muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint and muscle soreness, abrasions, contusions, stress fractures, broken bones, spinal cord injuries involving paralysis, and even death. However, if you take certain precautions, the possibility of such injuries will be largely decreased.
I have read the preceding warning. I thoroughly appreciate and understand the assumption of risks inherent in cheerleading participation. I acknowledge that I am physically fit and am voluntarily participating in this activity.
As the legal guardian of my designated child, I hereby consent to my child participating in the facility's programs.

I understand that it is the express written intent of all staff members and personnel to provide for the safety and protection of my child and with allowing my child to use this facility, I hereby COVENANT NOT TO SUE and FOREVER RELEASE this facility, its affiliates and partner companies/organizations, property owners and lessors, staff, contractors/subcontractors, teachers, coaches, owners, directors, and any members involved in this facility's programs, from all liabilities, damages, and injuries suffered by my child during instructions, supervision, and/or controlled activities during any and all classes and/or practices.
