NEWARK — The U.S. Attorney’s Office has reached a settlement with a Hammonton-based gymnastics program allowing a 6-year-old girl with a disability to participate in a class.

U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced Thursday an agreement resolved an ADA complaint filed in 2016 by the parents of the young girl, who has a medical disability that requires the use of a gastrointestinal feeding tube.

In the case, the parents alleged the business, Youth Fitness and Fun LLC, also doing business as Flyers’ Team, Flyers’ Academy and Flyers’ Gymnastics Academy, refused to modify the program to allow the 6-year-old to participate. According to court filings, the young girl was signed up for a trial class. On the liability waiver, the girl’s parents let staff know of the feeding tube, that the girl may require rest breaks, and that staff assisting in tumbling exercises should be aware of the feeding tube.
