ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RISK: I am the parent and/or legal guardian of the participant named on this document. I recognize that severe injuries, including permanent paralysis or death can occur in sports or activities involving height or motion; those activities include but are not limited to gymnastics, tumbling, trampoline, movement education, dance, and stunting. I also realize that my child(ren) will be performing and training on all gymnastics events plus various training devices, including trampoline. I certify that I have consulted a physician, to the extent that I deem appropriate, concerning my child(ren)s participation in these activities. I represent to CLASAMAR Inc, Dba Colorado Gymnastics Institute (CGI), that my child is medically fit to participate. I am also aware that participation in day camps, open gym and competition involves transportation to and from such events and that such transportation could result in injury or death in a vehicular accident. I furthermore recognize that due to increased movement, height, flipping, twisting and inversion, the competitive pursuit of these sports and activities carries a higher degree of risk of catastrophic injury than do the recreational versions.
CONSENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK: Being fully aware of these dangers, I hereby give consent for my child(ren) to participate in any and all CGI programs and activities for which they are registered and I ACCEPT ALL RISKS associated with this participation.
WAIVER AND RELEASE: In consideration for my or my child(ren)s participation, I hereby, for myself and my child(ren) and our respective heirs and successors, PROMISE NOT TO SUE AND FOREVER RELEASE AND DISCHARGE CGI, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, teachers, coaches and volunteers from all liability resulting from damages or injuries incurred as a result of participation in CGI programs, including those resulting from acts of negligence. I understand that CGI has relied upon this agreement in determining the extent of insurance coverage to be obtained, and that in the absence of this Release, CGI would charge considerably higher fees to participants.
Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19 The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
CGI has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, CGI cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending CGI could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending CGI and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at CGI may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, CGI employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at CGI or participation in CGI programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless CGI, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of CGI, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any CGI program.
PHOTO AND MEDIA RELEASE: I am aware that individual and group publicity photos and videos are taken from time to time and in consideration for my or my child(ren)s participation, I grant permission for my child(ren)s likeness to be used in CGI publicity, media usage including but not limited to social media, training tools and videos and/or advertising.
CONSENT TO MEDICAL TREATMENT: In the event of an accident or emergency, I herby authorize CGI and its representatives, including its employees, contractors, teachers, coaches and volunteers, to render first aid to my child(ren) to the extent they deem appropriate, I further authorize CGI and its representatives to transport or arrange for transportation, by ambulance if CGI deems it appropriate of my child(ren) to a hospital or any other medical or dental treatment for my child(ren). Additionally, I hereby agree to be personally responsible for payment of all medical and dental expenses, including transportation, which may be incurred by myself on behalf of my child(ren) as a result of any injury sustained while participating at or for CGI, including future medical and dental expenses related to such injury.
Payment for each new session is due 4 weeks prior to the beginning of each session. Payment for an upcoming session guarantees your child's placement in our program. Every session is 7 weeks long and session payments are due in full. Once payment has been made, there are no refunds for sessions. Payment shows your commitment to the entire session allowing us to effectively schedule coaches for your child's class. Team tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Late payments are subject to a late fee outlined in the team contract. Every family is encouraged to go on Autopay which is deducted 3 days prior to the beginning of a new session. Autopay guarantees your child's continued placement in our program.
The annual registration fee is due on your anniversary month each year. The annual fee is $35 per student.
Colorado Gymnastics Institute closes for all major holidays including Thanksgiving, Labor Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Christmas. If your child is in a class on one of these holidays, a make-up day will be offered. Colorado Gymnastics Institute is only closed for 4 weeks throughout the calendar year-- two weeks around Christmas, one week in June and one week in July. If the gym needs to close for any reason or a schedule change needs to be made, due to unforeseen circumstances, a hosted gymnastics meet at CGI, or any other reason deemed necessary by the staff of CGI, we reserve the right to do so. In the event the gym closes for any other reason other than a holiday, a make-up day will be offered.
Children must be free of fever, without the aid of medication, for a minimum of 24 hours before participation in class. As with any children's program, keeping the children and staff healthy keeps us all happy! If your child has been sick in the past 24 hours, please do not bring him/her to the gym. If your child has had a fever, yellow-greenish mucus from his/her nose, vomited or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours, then they need to stay away from other children. Please do not bring sick siblings into the gym. If they are home sick from school then they should not be brought into the gym, even just to observe in the lobby.
*All legal guardians are required to sign the Acknowledgment of Risk and Waiver of Liability upon registration before your child can participate in classes.
*Please dress your child appropriately in snug but comfortable clothing (no denim, buttons, zippers, or belts) that they can move in.
*Long hair must be pulled back away from the face. This is for the safety of your child and for ease in spotting for our instructors.
*Children are not allowed to wear rings, bracelets, anklets, or dangling earrings while participating in class or practices. If your child does so, he/she will be asked to remove the jewelry.
We are not responsible for holding or keeping these items for you child. Also, we are not responsible if the item becomes lost or misplaced.

*For the safety of all the gymnasts, please do not use flash photography at any time. Special arrangements can be made with the instructors for pictures.
*Management reserves the right to cancel a scheduled class due to lack of participation or a conflict with another class or event. Every effort will be made to accommodate each family to avoid any interruption in class time.
We make every effort to monitor children after classes. Parents need to be on-time to pick up their children. Many children get very anxious when class is over and they don't see Mom or Dad. Please let us know if someone else is picking up your child. Colorado Gymnastics Institute is not responsible for items left in the gym or lobby.
We maintain a lost and found box but cannot promise your item will be found. It is the responsibility of the parent to update records when needed. To keep auto-draft accounts current and email and physical addresses and phone numbers current.
