BY SIGNING THIS I AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT, RELEASE & ASSUMPTION OF RISK

In consideration of the services of GCA Parkour LLC and Gymnastics and Cheerleading Academy
of Connecticut LLC, their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "GCA"), I hereby agree to release, indemnify, and discharge GCA, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative & estate as follows:

1. I acknowledge that my participation in Parkour training and instruction activities, Gymnastics training and instruction activities and all other activities in this facility entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.
The risks include, among other things: slips and falls; falling from equipment; rope burns; pinches, scrapes, twists and jolts that could result in scratches, bruises, sprains, lacerations, fractures, concussions, or even more severe life threatening hazards; muscular soreness, tears, strains, sprains, dislocations, fractures and broken bones; cuts, bruises, and muscle soreness; wrist, arm and shoulder injuries; musculoskeletal injuries including head, neck, and back; injuries to internal organs; the negligence of other people; my own physical condition; and the risk of emotional and psychological injuries or physical damage associated with this activity. Traveling to and from shows, meets and exhibitions raises the possibility of any manner of transportation accidents. In any event, if your child is injured, your child may require medical assistance, at your own expense.
Furthermore, GCA employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant's fitness or abilities. They might misjudge the weather or other environmental conditions. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction.

2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless GCA from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity or my use of GCA’s equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of GCA. 

4. Should GCA or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs. 

5. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.

6. In the event that I file a lawsuit against GCA, I agree to do so solely in the state of Connecticut, and I further agree that the substantive law of that state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules of that state. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining document shall remain in full force and effect. 
By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against GCA on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.

I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.

Parent and guest agreement
No parent or guests are allowed in any of the gyms, on gymnastics/parkour equipment or foam pits at any time. This includes regularly scheduled classes and birthday parties. A liability waiver for each participating student must be signed by a parent or guardian at GCA before beginning classes. Students over age 18 may sign their own waivers.



 
 

Medical Release
I give permission for GCA, its coaches and owners to seek emergency medical treatment on behalf of my child, in the event that they are unable to reach a parent or guardian.

Photo Release
I give my permission for photos and videos of my child, taken during class and/or competitions to be used on GCA's website, social media and other marketing materials.

Management
Management GCA may suspend or cancel the rights, privileges, or membership of any GCA member whose actions are detrimental to the enjoyment of the facilities by other members or any conduct which in the opinion of the management is prejudicial to welfare, good order, and character of GCA. Any inappropriate behavior, i.e. profanity or yelling, incidental to the enjoyment of the club by other members may result in membership termination without a refund and registration fee shall be forfeited.

GYMNASTICS AND CHEERLEADING ACADEMY

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, WAIVER AND RELEASE

Precautions for the COVID 19 virus caused Gymnastics and Cheerleading Academy, LLC to suspend its activities temporarily. As the gym at 85 Mill Plain Rd, Fairfield, CT reopens, new procedures and policies will be required.

The virus will be a factor in everyone’s life for some time to come, and there is no assurance that our precautions will prevent the virus from spreading. We are taking steps to reduce that risk, and we will adapt our procedures as circumstances may change, consistent with operating the gym for the education and enjoyment for your children.

 

If they wish, parents may leave their children at the building entrance, remain outdoors, and pick them up from the building exit. Parents required to wear masks and practice social distancing everywhere on the premises. In addition, we will only allow one parent, with a mask, per family, to enter the building. No one whose temperature that exceeds 100 degrees will be allowed to enter the building. We will be using non-contact thermometer. Any person above that reading will have to leave the premises immediately.

To teach gymnastics safely and effectively, clear oral instructions and attentive spotting are essential. For that reason, our staff may elect not to wear a mask, although children are permitted to do so. Further spotting will require our staff to physically guide children through their routines, so touching will be inevitable.

To permit and acknowledge Gymnastics and Cheerleading Academy, LLC, to conduct its gymnastics classes in this fashion and release it from all liability relating to COVID 19, whether relating to you, your children, or other family members.


By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against GCA on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.

I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
