It is our goal to offer a positive event where good sportsmanship is the major theme, and all rules and safety rules are followed. We strive to uphold the highest standards and promote this to the best of our abilities, and believe that coaches/advisors/directors are instrumental in promoting and instilling this among their respective team members.
(a) We understand that cheerleading is a competitive activity, which requires the proper training techniques for all athletes under our direction.
(b) We attest we have been properly trained in basic cheerleading techniques, proper skill progression, and safety precautions.
(c) We understand it is our ethical duty to put the interest and safety of our athletes first, and not to put cheerleaders under our direction at risk unnecessarily.
(d) As the person in charge and responsible for the Team participating in the Event I understand that I must obtain all athlete waivers and advise all athletes or parents of athletes the waiver they are agreeing to as part of their entrance into the Event.
I/we therefore certify, represent, and warrant that we have obtained all necessary waivers. I/we fully understand we may be liable in relation to any claims by our athletes for any injuries suffered at the Event. In the event any of your athletes/participants/families make any claims against Cheerbrandz or Dancebrandz, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Producer and its representatives from any and all liability, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs) that the Producer may incur as a result of your or your team’s failure to use proper safety techniques and or from your failure to obtain any necessary athlete waivers.4.

I therefore certify, represent, and warrant that I have obtained all necessary licenses. I fully understand I may be liable in relation to violations of intellectual property laws, including copyright laws relating to music the Team plays at the Event.
(b) Music Waiver - In the unlikely event someone ever claims that I or the Team infringed upon any intellectual property, including copyrighted work of music, I agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Producer and its representatives from any and all liability, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs) that the Producer may incur as a result of my or my team’s use of any intellectual property at the Event.
5. LIABILITY WAIVER
As the responsible coach/gym/studio owner I freely acknowledge that I have voluntarily registered my teams to participate in cheerleading and dance activities held by Cheerbrandz or Dancebrandz, which include dance, gymnastics, stunting, jumping, and tumbling components. I/we acknowledge that participation in cheerleading and dance activities entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in serious and permanent physical and emotional injuries to (myself/my athletes/my team(s)), death, damage to property, and injury to others. I understand that such risks are inherent in these activities and that even with precautions and safety measures they cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activities. I also understand that injuries may be compounded or increased by negligent rescue operations and as such, I understand that other than having trained first aiders on site and telephoning for an ambulance, medical assistance is limited. Understanding such dangers, I hereby knowingly and voluntarily enroll in events held by the Cheerbrandz and Dancebrandz, and I assume the risk of the activities involving me myself and my team(s). I hereby agree to and shall indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless the Cheerbrandz and Dancebrandz Representatives from and against any and all loss, liability, damage, or cost they may incur, including attorneys’ fees and litigation costs, arising out of or related to the above-described activities, whether cause by negligence or otherwise. I hereby agree that the assumption of risk, the release and waiver of liability, and the indemnity agreements contained herein extend to all acts of negligence and is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law where those laws apply to the activities, and that if any portion of this waiver is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. By agreeing to enter the Event, I represent that I have read these conditions thoroughly and understand it completely, including the substantial legal rights I am giving up for (myself/Gym/Studio and my Team(s)). I have had the opportunity to seek legal advice or I have knowingly and voluntarily chosen not to seek legal advice. I agree freely and voluntarily without inducement of any kind or guarantee being made.
