WAIVER & RELEASE TERMS
I fully understand that Gymnastix Training Center/Ninja Zone (known as “GTC/NZ”) staff members are not physicians or medical practitioners of any kind. I hereby release GTC/NZ staff to render temporary first aid to my child or children in the event of any injury or illness, and if deemed necessary by GTC/NZ staff to call our doctor and to seek medical help, including transportation by a GTC/NZ staff member and/or its representatives, whether paid or volunteer, to any health care facility or hospital, or the calling of an ambulance for said child should GTC/NZ staff deem this to be necessary.
We, the staff of GTC/NZ recognize our obligation to make our students and their parents aware of the risks and the hazards associated with the sport of gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, and dance. Students may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious, or catastrophic in nature. Gymnastics, Tumbling, Ninja Zone, and Cheerleading can be dangerous and can lead to injury! Parents should make their children aware of the possibility of injury and encourage their children to follow all the safety rules and the coaches’ instructions. GTC/NZ its coaches and other staff members, will not accept responsibility for injuries sustained by any student during the course of gymnastics, tumbling, dance, or cheerleading instruction, or open workouts, or in the course of any exhibition, competition, or clinic in which he or she may participate or while traveling to or from the event.
With the above in mind, and being fully aware of the risks and possibility of injury involved, I consent to have my child or children participate in the programs offered by GTC/NZ. I, my executors or other representatives, waive and release all rights and claims for damages that my child or I may have against GTC/NZ and/or its representatives whether paid or volunteer. I understand that any and all activities will be conducted in a safe gym environment and will hold GTC/NZ harmless of any injuries incurred in and outside gym areas. I also affirm that I now have and will continue to provide proper hospitalization, health, and accident insurance coverage that I consider adequate for both my child’s protection and my own protection. I also understand that it is the parent’s responsibility to warn the participant about the dangers of the activities and potential injury. The parent should warn the child according to what the parent feels is appropriate. GTC/NZ will only warn the child through “Safety Messages” and our teaching style and progressions.
I understand and accept that GTC/NZ is a member of USA Gymnastics and the Amateur Athletic Union (known as “AAU”) and adheres to membership obligations in said organizations. GTC/NZ is not a licensed Care and Learning facility nor is GTC/NZ required to be licensed by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. GTC/NZ does not provide childcare services outside of our class programs.
I also hereby give GTC/NZ permission to use a photograph, video footage, or name of my child for advertising/marketing purposes.
