I fully understand that Dahlonega Gymnastics staff members are not physicians or medical practitioners of any kind. With the above in mind I herby release Dahlonega Gymnastics staff to render first aid to my child or children in the event of any injury or illness, and if deemed necessary by Dahlonega Gymnastics staff to call our doctor and to seek medical help, including transportation by a Dahlonega Gymnastics staff member or its representatives, whether paid or volunteer, to any health care facility or hospital, or the calling of an ambulance for said child should Dahlonega Gymnastics staff deem this to be necessary.
We, the staff of Dahlonega Gymnastics recognize our obligation to make our students and their parents aware of the risks and hazards associated with the sport of gymnastics. Students may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious, or catastrophic in nature. Gymnastics can be dangerous and 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 instruction. Dahlonega Gymnastics, its coaches and other staff members, will not accept responsibility for injuries sustained by any student during the course of gymnastics instruction, or open workouts or in the case of any exhibition, competition, or clinic in which he or she may participate while traveling to or from the event. With the above in mind, and being fully aware of the risks and possibility of an injury involved, I consent to have my child or children participate in the programs offered by Dahlonega Gymnastics. I, my executors, or other representatives, waive and release all rights and claims for damages that my child or I may have against Dahlonega Gymnastics and/or its representatives whether paid or volunteer. I also affirm that I now have and will continue to provide proper hospitalization, health, and accident insurance coverage, which I consider adequate for both my child's protection and my own protection. I also understand that it is the parents responsibility to warn the child about the dangers of gymnastics and injury. The parent should warn the child according to what the parents feel is appropriate. Dahlonega Gymnastics will only warn the child through Safety Messages and our teaching style and progression.
