By the very nature of the activity, gymnastics carries a risk of physical injury. The risk of injuries includes minor injuries such as bruises and more serious injuries such as broken bones, dislocations and muscle pulls. Participation also includes possible exposure to and illness from communicable diseases including but not limited to MRSA, influenza, and COVID-19. While particular rules and personal discipline may reduce these risks, the risk of serious illness and catastrophic injuries exist. Gymnastics, or any activity that involves motion, rotation, and height in a unique environment carries with it a reasonable assumption of risk. Spotlight Gymnastics is therefore informing participants and their parents or guardians of the risk involved in the activity of gymnastics. Further, everyone participating in the Spotlight Gymnastics program agrees to adhere to the safety rules governing our program, including those for protection against communicable diseases and attests and verifies that the participant is in good health and in proper physical condition for the sport of gymnastics.
