By signing this waiver, I freely accept and fully assume responsibility for all such dangers and risks and the possibility of personal injury, permanent paralysis, death, or loss resulting thereof.
In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in the Virginia Techniques sports program, I acknowledge, appreciate, and agree:

- To release the Releasees from any and all liability for any loss, damage, injury, permanent paralysis, death, medical or other expense that I may suffer or that any other party may suffer as a result of my participation in VTGI’s sports program, and in transport to and from gymnastics meets and other Releasees designated activities, due to any cause whatsoever.
- To hold harmless and indemnify the Releasees from any and all liability for any property damage or personal injury to any third party, resulting from my use of any gymnastics facilities and equipment or by my participation in the sport of gymnastics and other Releasees activities.
- This release of liability shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns in the event of my personal injury including death, permanent paralysis, illness and/or property damage.
- I agree not to take unreasonable risks while participating in gymnastics and other Releasees activities, including but not limited to attempting skills or tricks that I am not qualified to perform safely or causing any other participants/spectators unreasonable risk of harm. Furthermore, I agree to follow correct safety procedures when using gymnastics facilities, equipment and all Releasees activities away from the gym.
- I also expressly grant to the Releasees the right to film, videotape, photograph, record and make any reproductions of my physical likeness and voice, and the irrevocable right to perpetuity to use, display, and digitally enhance or alter in any manner, such likeness in any media.
I certify that I have read and understand this Release of Liability Waiver prior to signing it, and I am aware that by signing this Release of Liability Waiver I am waiving certain legal rights which I or my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, next of kin, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns, may have against the Releasees.
VTGI shall have the right to impose any additional conditions which, in the opinion of the Releasees, will further the intent and legal rights and waivers provided herein.
