Gym Waiver & Release for Birthday Party Participants
PARENT AND/OR PARTICIPATING ADULT, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. FOR ANY CHILD PARTICIPATING IN A GYMNASTIC ACTIVITY:
By the very nature of the activity, gymnastics carries a risk of physical injury. No matter how careful the participant and the coach are, no matter how many spotters are used, no matter what height is used or what landing equipment, the inherent risks associated with gymnastic activities cannot be eliminated. The risk of injuries include minor injuries, such as bruises, and more serious injuries, such as broken bones, dislocations and muscle pulls. The risk also includes catastrophic injuries such as permanent paralysis or even death from landings or falls on the back, neck or head.
Gymnastics, or any activity that involves motion, rotation, and height in a unique environment, carries with it a reasonable assumption of risk. ECNS is bound by law to inform all participants and their parents or guardians of the risk involved in the activity of gymnastics. Anyone attending a birthday party and participating in the ECNS gymnastic program (along with those legally responsible for the participant) must sign this release and must adhere to the safety rules governing the gymnasium. These rules are posted inside and outside the gymnasium.
In consideration for ECNS’s acceptance of the applicant, and in consideration of the applicant’s opportunity to improve gymnastic skills through the use of ECNS’s staff, equipment and facilities, those legally responsible for the named enrolling student recognize that potentially severe injuries, including permanent paralysis or death, can occur in sports or activities involving height or motion that take place at ECNS, including, but not limited to, gymnastics, tumbling, trampoline, martial arts, dance and cheerleading. Being fully aware of these dangers, I, on my own behalf and on behalf of my child, our respective heirs, administrators, executors and successors, and assigns, hereby covenant not to sue and forever release and hold harmless ECNS and its officers, directors, shareholders, employees or agents from all liability for any and all damages or injuries suffered while under the instruction, supervision or control of ECNS including, without limitation, those damages or injuries resulting from acts of negligence on the part of ECNS and its officers, directors, shareholders, employees or agents. Additionally, I hereby agree to individually provide all possible future medical expenses, which may be incurred by me or my child as a result of any injury sustained by me or my child while in attendance at or participating at ECNS. I have read and understand this ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER OF LIABILITY and MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION and I VOLUNTARILY affix my name in agreement below:
FOR ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES
I certify that the enrollee has no condition that prohibits full participation in the activities at ECNS. I assume all ordinary risks when using the facilities and hereby release ECNS, or any of its employees, for any injury or damage suffered in connection with said use of the aforementioned facility and its equipment.
MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION AND WAIVER
In case of emergency and I cannot be reached, I authorize ECNS, its agents and employees to contact and secure, if necessary, medical attention for my child.
FOR ALL ENROLLED STUDENTS, CAMPERS OR EVENT PARTICIPANTS
I hereby grant to ECNS and/or its legal representatives and assigns, the irrevocable, absolute, and unrestricted right to use and publish the likeness, portraits, photographs, film or videos of my child, or in which my child may be included, for editorial, trade, advertising, brochures, website, social media and any other purpose and in any manner and medium, and to copyright same. I hereby release ECNS and its legal representatives and assigns from all claims, royalties, and liability relating to the use of said likeness, portraits, photographs or films/videos.
