Release and Indemnity. In consideration of my child's participation in Southern Gymnastics LLC (hereinafter "Southern Gymnastics") sports, related events and activities, I, the legal guardian of the below named child, acknowledge, appreciate, and agree that: (1) The risk of injury from the activities involved in this program is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist; and, (2) I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or others, and assume full responsibility for my child's participation, and I fully accept and assume responsibility for losses, costs and damages that I, or my child, incur as a result of my child's participation in the activities associated with the Southern Gymnastics; and, (3) I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation, and, (4) I, for myself and on behalf of my child, heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS Southern Gymnastics, their officers, officials, agents, employees, contractors, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used to conduct the said event ("RELEASEES"), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Waiver of Claims. I hereby waive all claims that I or my child have or may have against Southern Gymnastics, their owners, managers, coaches, officers, directors, members, affiliates, agents, attorneys, servants, assistants, representatives, assigns, volunteers, employees, independent contractors, and others acting on their behalf, arising out of my child's participation in Southern Gymnastics sports.
Assumption of Risk. I understand, accept and am aware that there are certain inherent risks, dangers and hazards associated with engaging in sports and other related physical activities that can result in serious personal injury or death. As such, I hereby freely agree to assume and accept any and all known and unknown risks of injury associated with Southern Gymnastics sports. I further recognize and acknowledge that the risks inherent in engaging in physical activities can be greatly reduced by seeking instruction from a trained professional, consulting with a physician, taking adequate precautions, using reasonable care and common sense and following the Rules and Regulations of Southern Gymnastics. I certify that my child is in good physical condition and has no known disabilities that might be detrimental to my child's health or well-being. I therefore agree to assume the risks and dangers inherent in my child's activities during Southern Gymnastics sports, to at all times be responsible for my child's personal safety, remain financially responsible for my child's medical expenses, and waive right to any claims arising from my child's activities during Southern Gymnastics sports.
Medical Treatment. I hereby give Southern Gymnastics permission to take my child to a medical professional or treatment facility for medical attention or to have medical treatment rendered to my child should my child be injured during the course of any Southern Gymnastics activity, including but not limited to emergency treatment or surgery, in the event such medical attention is required. I agree that the physicians and/or medical providers who render such treatment to my child do so with my specific authority. I hereby agree to assume the responsibility for all medical bills resulting from any medical treatment rendered and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Southern Gymnastics, their owners, managers, coaches, officers, directors, members, affiliates, agents, attorneys, servants, assistants, representatives, assigns, volunteers, employees, independent contractors, and others acting on their behalf from any liability related to such medical expenses. I represent and warrant that I have current medical insurance coverage for my child.
I understand that this waiver is intended to be as broad and as inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Georgia and agree that if any portion is held invalid, the remainder of the waiver will continue in full legal force and effect. I further agree that the venue for any legal proceedings shall be in Walton County, Georgia.
I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT, AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
