Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
There is no law in NY that says anything about a gymnastic facility not being allowed to use a safety harness. Parents and these schools can use such a harness if there is a concern that the child may be harmed or may harm others. NYS would not prevent the facility from using such a harness, BUT from a legal liability standpoint, if a facility is going to use these harnesses, they should (not mandatory) obtain written consent from the parents of the child stating they agree that such safety harnesses may be used as needed to protect their child.
