Assumption of Risk

 

Assumption of Risk

Because voluntary participation in recreational activities, programs, and sports involves physical activity with risk of personal injury or damage to property, it is the policy of UNC Charlotte that all participants voluntarily and knowingly assume all risks associated with physical activity.

I understand that I am voluntarily participating in recreational activities at UNC Charlotte for my own personal benefit. I assume responsibility for all risks involved in aforementioned activities that have inherent dangers and hazards that no amount of care, caution, instruction, or expertise can eliminate. Risks may include, but are not limited to:

  1. Minor injuries such as scratches, bruises, strains and sprains
  2. Major injuries such as eye injury or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, cardiac events, and concussions
  3. Catastrophic injuries including paralysis and even death.

In consideration for being permitted to participate in these activities at UNC Charlotte, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless UNC Charlotte, its trustees, officers, employees and agents from any liability arising from or proximately caused by my participation in these activities. I further agree to accept and assume for myself, my assigns, executors, and heirs any and all such risks and losses that may occur.

Participation in recreational activity at UNC Charlotte 

is voluntary and at the risk of the participant.
