Grand Rapids Trampoline Academy in partnership with Grand Rapids Gymnastics recognizes that it is our obligation to make our students and their parents aware of the risk and hazards associated with the sports of gymnastics, trampoline, tumbling, and double mini. Students may suffer injuries possibly minor, serious, or catastrophic in nature.
RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK; AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”)
I fully acknowledge, understand, appreciate and agree, that this activity involves risks of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, which may be caused by the actions, or inactions of the athlete and those of others participating in the event, the conditions in which the event takes place, or the negligence of the Releasees named below; and that there may be other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, cost, and damages I incur as a result of participation in the activity.
I hereby release, discharge, and covenant not to sue Grand Rapids Trampoline Academy, its administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, employees, contractors, other participants, any sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of the premises on which the activity takes place, (each considered one of the “RELEASEES” herein) from all liability, claims, demands, losses, damages, on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in party by the negligence of the RELEASEES or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations and further agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk, I or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the RELEASEES, I will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless each of the RELEASEES from any loss, liability, damage, or cost, which any may incur as the result of such a claim.
I authorize Grand Rapids Trampoline Academy to provide the participant, through medical personal of their choice, customary medical assistance, transportation, and emergency medical services should the athlete require such assistance. If the athlete is a minor child and a parent or guardian is not present, efforts will be made to contact a parent or guardian that are reasonable under the circumstances, but treatment will not be withheld if a parent or guardian cannot be reached.
I have read the RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT, and I understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law. I agree that if any portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid, the balance, notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect.
PARENTAL CONSENT I hereby covenant and promise that I am the minor’s parent and/or legal guardian, and on behalf of myself and the minor, understand the nature of the above referenced activities and the minor’s experience and capabilities and believe the minor to be qualified to participate in such activity. I further understand the risk of exposure to injury and/or infectious diseases including COVID-19, for myself and my child, as a participant, spectator at events, classes or our presence at the facility. I hereby release, discharge, covenant not to sue and AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the RELEASEES from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on the minor’s or my account caused or alleged to have been caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, including, but not limited to injury, negligent rescue operations, and/or exposure to infectious diseases and I further agree that if, despite this release, I, the minor, or anyone on the minor’s behalf makes a claim against any of the above RELEASEES, I WILL DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the RELEASEES from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss liability, damage, or cost which any RELEASEE may incur as the result of any such claim.
