I certify that my child has had a physical within the last year and has no known health issues that would prevent him/her from participating in any activity including but not limited to gymnastics, dance, and aerial arts, held at or hosted by Gym America - Gymnastics Dance and Aerial Arts, LLC. I understand and acknowledge that gymnastics, dance, aerial arts, and related activities are potentially hazardous activities that involve height and rotation which pose a risk of injury regardless of the precautions and safety equipment used. Possible injuries vary from broken bones and contusions to paralysis or other catastrophic injuries. While safety measures are taken and proper progressions will be taught, the risk of injury can never be eliminated.
I hereby for myself, my children, my heirs and executors waive and release any and all rights and claims for damages that I may have at any time against Gym America, their agents or representatives; for any injury or damages that may be suffered by me, my children adopted or otherwise, in connection with my association or entry in gymnastics, aerial arts or other activities sponsored by or at Gym America - Gymnastics Dance and Aerial Arts, LLC. I hereby release and covenant not to sue Gym America - Gymnastics, Dance and Aerial Arts LLC, the Directors, and any of their employees, teachers, coaches or agents from any and all present and future claims resulting from ordinary negligence of Gym America - Gymnastics, Dance and Aerial Arts, or others listed for property damage, personal injury or wrongful death, arising as a result of my engaging or my child engaging in or receiving instruction in gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, martial arts or any other activities or any activities incidental thereto, held at or hosted by Gym America. I hereby voluntarily waive any and all claims resulting from ordinary negligence, both present and future, that may be made by me, my family, estate, heirs or assigns.
Because I am aware that gymnastics, dance, aerial arts and related activities involve the risk of a very serious injury, I acknowledge that I am voluntarily enrolling myself, my child or ward to participate in Gym America's gymnastics, dance and aerial arts program with full knowledge of the risks involved and on behalf of my child or ward, I hereby assume and accept all risks of any resulting injury. I further understand that this waiver and release intends to be as broad and as inclusive as permitted by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and I agree that if any portion is held invalid, the remainder of these terms will continue in full legal force and effect. I further agree that the venue for any legal proceedings shall be within the State of Virginia.
