I fully understand that the Billings Gymnastics School (to be referred to as BGS for the purpose of this document) staff members are not physicians or medical practitioners of any kind. With this in mind, I hereby release the BGS staff to render temporary first aid to my child in the event of any injury or illness and, if deemed necessary by the BGS staff, to seek professional medical help including transportation by a BGS 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.
We, the staff of BGS, recognize our obligation to make our students and their parents aware of the risks and hazards associated with gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, swimming, day camps, birthday parties or field trips. Students may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious or catastrophic in nature. Parents should make their child aware of the possibility of injury and encourage their child to follow all the safety rules and the coaches' instructions. BGS, its coaches, and other staff members will not accept responsibility for injuries sustained by any student during the course of the above mentioned activities or open workouts, special activities, exhibitions, competitions or clinics or while traveling to or from the event.
With the above in mind and being fully aware of the risks and the possibility of injury involved, I consent to have my child participate in the programs offered by BGS. I, my executors, or other representatives waive and release all rights and claims for damages that my child or I may have against BGS and/or its representatives, whether paid or volunteer.
I 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 and my own protection.
I understand that it is the parent's responsibility to warn the child about the dangers of activity and injury. The parent should warn the child according to what the parent feels is appropriate. BGS will only warn the child through safety rules and its teaching style and progressions.
