Acknowledgement, Waiver and Release from Liability (AWRL)
By consenting to this document (whether partially or fully) you agree to comply with all the information put to you as written. Athletes will not be able to participate without this complete agreement being signed off by the parent/guardian of the athlete.
I acknowledge that cheerleading as a discipline is a sport and a test of a person's physical and mental limits and carries with it risks of minor & serious injury and property loss.
I HEREBY ASSUME THE RISKS OF ME/MY CHILD PARTICIPATING IN ALL-STAR CHEERLEADING WITH
STRIKE FORCE CHEER & DANCE LTD.
I certify that I am/my child(ren) named on my profile is/are physically fit and has not been advised against participation by a qualified health professional.
I waive, release, and discharge from all claims, losses, or liabilities for death, personal injury, partial or permanent disability, property damage, medical or hospital bills, theft, or damage of any kind.
I hereby permit the staff/volunteers of Strike Force, to seek appropriate medical treatment for my child in the event of accident, injury, or illness.
Accident/Injuries: Athlete may be required by coaches for a certified doctors note if they have to not participate in practice. If a GP/Hospital visit has happened, a note is generally given. Athletes will need to be signed back on to participate depending on the severity of the injury/illness.
Coaches may make provisions to assist the team, should an athlete have to take time off from practice. Coaches are under no obligation to revert any changes when the injured athlete returns to practice.
Injured athletes who cannot participate in training are still required to make all sessions as an observer/pay tuition fees as standard.
I waive, release, and discharge from any and all claims, losses, or liabilities for death, personal injury, partial or permanent disability, property damage, medical or hospital bills, theft, or damage of any kind, including economic losses, which may in the future arise out of or related to my participation in or my traveling to and from all related Strike Force events.
If any of the rules for parents and athletes are violated, the following steps will be taken:
1st violation - The cheer athlete and/or parent(s) will be spoken with about the behaviour and issued a warning.
2nd violation - The cheer athlete and/or parent(s) will be suspended from the gym for a specified amount of time, and the cheer athlete may be dropped from the next competition or anything else as determined by the gym administrators.
3rd violation - The family will be asked to leave the gym for the season. In cases of an extreme policy violation, such as any acts of violence, threats of violence, derogatory statements about Strike Force, or any of the owners, coaches or athletes, the gym reserves the right to immediately remove a cheer athlete and/or parent(s) from the gym. If a parent or athlete is asked to leave the gym due to any policy violation, they will not be refunded any fees.
The cheer athlete should not be held from practice as a form of discipline. The team depends on all of its members, and failure of a team member to show up for practice causes an undue strain on the team. This type of behaviour will result in unexcused absences and follow the discipline guidelines set.
Strike Force will establish a line of clothing items that can be purchased in our Pro Shop. The duplication or production of any items containing our trademarked logo, gym name, team names, team logos, sayings, or hashtags, without prior written approval is prohibited.
