Gymnast (and if a minor, the undersigned as parent/guardian of Gymnast and for him or herself in attending events at IGA Gymnastics and using the facilities) voluntarily assumes all of the risks and dangers which are inherent in any gymnastic activity and the use of any gymnastic equipment. These risks and dangers include, but are not limited to, abrasions, contusions, concussions, lacerations, sprained or broken bones, serious bodily injury, permanent disability, paralysis and death.
Gymnast (and if a minor, the undersigned) understands and acknowledges that neither IGA Gymnastics nor its employees, agents, volunteer assistants (collectively, "IGA Gymnastics") or other gymnasts are insurers against injury and that IGA Gymnastics offers its services to gymnasts at a cost which reflects the fact that it will not, and cannot, be monetarily responsible for personal injuries that may occur to a gymnast while on the premises or elsewhere. In consideration of this, and in consideration of the right to participate in gymnastics and related activities: (a) at IGA Gymnastics; (b) during competition and exhibits at IGA Gymnastics or elsewhere; (c) during travel to and/or from IGA Gymnastics; (d) during travel to and/or from competitions, exhibits and/or other related IGA Gymnastics activities, the undersigned agrees to release, defend and hold IGA Gymnastics, all other gymnasts, visitors, other persons who may be present, and the owners and managers of the premises where IGA Gymnastics is located (1625 Exchange St. Astoria, OR 97103) harmless from any claims and/or liability for damages arising directly or indirectly from any injury(ies) and damages sustained by Gymnast due, in whole or in part, to: (a) the negligence of IGA Gymnastics and/or other gymnasts or visitors; (b) the negligence of any owners and/or managers of the premises where IGA Gymnastics is located; (c) any defective quality or performance either as to the manufacture, design, location and/or maintenance of any equipment or facilities used by IGA Gymnastics in its business, whether or not any such defective quality or performance is known or unknown to IGA Gymnastics, the Gymnast and/or the undersigned.
To the extent that Gymnast is a minor, the undersigned as parent/guardian of Gymnast, gives his/her child permission to participate in any and all IGA Gymnastics programs.
Further, the undersigned, as the parent/guardian of Gymnast, represents and warrants that s/he carries adequate medical insurance on and for the Gymnast. The undersigned also give his/her consent to IGA Gymnastics to provide, through a medical provider of its choosing, such medical attention, services, transportation and /or emergency medical services as IGA Gymnastics, in its sole opinion, deems reasonably necessary. This provision does not, and is not intended to place any obligation upon IGA Gymnastics to provide any medical attention, services, transportation and/or emergency medical services to Gymnast or anyone else.
The undersigned expressly waives any and all right to a jury trial and agrees that any litigation arising out of, or related to, Gymnast's use of the facilities and/or equipment of IGA Gymnastics shall be resolved solely through binding arbitration between the parties using the Arbitration Service of Astoria or such other arbitrator as the parties may agree. The award of the arbitrator shall be the sole and exclusive remedy between them. Judgement may be entered on the arbitrators in any court having jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own legal costs related to such arbitration.
By signing this Release of Liability, the undersigned acknowledges and represents that s/he is aware of the risks inherent to the use and operation of the IGA Gymnastics' facilities and equipment. The undersigned accepts full and complete responsibility for those risks and for any damages that may occur as a result of those risks even if injuries or damages occur in a manner that is or was not foreseeable at the time this Release of Liability is signed.
