I understand and acknowledge that the activity in which I am about to engage possesses known risks and unanticipated risks which could result in injury, paralysis, death, emotional distress or damage to myself, to property or to third parties. The following describes some, but not all, of those risks. Physical activity entails certain risks which cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities and aims of the activity. Without a certain degree of risk, students would not improve their skills and the enjoyment of the sport would be diminished. Physical activity exposes its participants to the usual risk of bruising and cuts. Other more serious risks also exist. Participants will sometimes fall on the equipment and suffer sprains, fractures and cuts. They also can suffer more serious injuries; any activity involving height or motion can cause permanent injury, paralysis or even death. Traveling to and from shows, exhibitions and competitions raises the possibility of any manner of transportation accident. All medical assistance shall be at my own expense.
I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in the activity as outlined above. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, no person(s) is forcing me to participate and I elect of my own volition to participate with full knowledge of the inherent risks involved.
I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge and agree to hold harmless and indemnify Bright Stars Academy from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, which are related to, arise out of, or are in any way connected with my participation in the activity including those allegedly attributable to negligent acts or omissions of Bright Stars Academy or its staff.
Should Bright Stars Gymnastics, or anyone acting on their behalf, be required for any reason to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and reimburse Bright Stars Academy for such fees and associated costs.
I certify that I have health, accident and liability insurance to cover and any bodily injury or property damage I may cause or suffer while participation in the sport of gymnastics, or else I agree to indemnify and reimburse Bright Stars Gymnastics for such fees and costs incurred.
By signing this document I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found, by a court of law, to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against Bright Stars Academy on the basis of any claim which I have release them herein. I have had sufficient opportunity to read and fully understand this entire document and I agree to be legally bound by its terms.
As the legal parent or guardian, I release and hold harmless Bright Stars Academy its owners and operators from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the participant and/or the undersigned, while in or upon the premises or any premises under the control and supervision of Bright Stars Academy, its owners and operators or in route to or from any of said premises.
