CA’s staff have been trained in age-appropriate gymnastics skill progressions and safety, first aid, and CPR. Chantilly Academy staff members recognize their obligation to make all students and parents aware of the risks and hazards associated with the sport of gymnastics and tumbling. 
Any activity is inherently dangerous and could lead to injury. Students may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious, or catastrophic in nature.  Parents should understand that participants can be injured while performing new or difficult skills even if they are spotted and have floor and landing mats around them. Neither spotting nor landing mats can prevent injury. Teachers and parents, together, must make children aware of the possibility of injury and insist that their children follow all safety rules and coaches’ instruction at all times.
