    Understood completely. My name is Max Gershberg and I work at HBO Sports. I am based in New York and work as an investigative journalist. I am happy to discuss more about the details of my reporting to date via email or elsewhere, if someone has thoughts and info they care to divulge, but wish to do so in a more private forum. Knowing what I do already about the cheer industry's current status quo, I understand many are reticent to vocally discuss some of the problems. I am happy to use solid and credible information on deep background, or to have initial conversations take place off the record, as a means of advancing my reporting but respecting the privacy of those willing to engage initially. I hope this proves helpful. Thank you again.

    A previous gym had this type of contract. Long story short, multiple parents took them to court and the gym lost. You cannot legally charge someone for services not rendered. I would be leery of any gym with this type of rule in place. A close lawyer friend of mine has also told me that youth sport contracts aren't worth the paper they're printed on in a court of law.

    This year was the first year my daughter tried out at multiple gyms. I found it highly suspect that they wanted my banking info at tryouts. We ended up at a different gym and I gave the gym who asked for banking info the wrong account number. Im so glad I did since we decided on a different gym.

    We have our lawyer look at our contract every year and my lawyer says these contracts are crap and there is always a way out. Good luck.

    Nope, instead of suing us ours is threatinig to hand out fees over to a lawyer/debt collection agency. This is after they added some fees to the bill. It's well over 2 thousand dollars all for leaving the gym in October. I don't think it's legal to charge for services not rendered. They have items we paid for and they are refusing to hand them over until we pay the bill in full. That's not fair since no o e has their bill paid off for the year but they haven't left this gym either.
