Assumption of Risk

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

I understand that I am voluntarily participating in recreational activities at NC State Wellness and Recreation 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.

Additionally, I understand that the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization and is becoming more widespread, including within our community in Raleigh, North Carolina.  COVID-19 is very contagious and believed to be spread mainly from person-to-person contact. I understand and appreciate that there are known and potential dangers of utilizing NC State Wellness and Recreation facilities, services and programs, and I acknowledge that the use of these facilities and services may, despite NC State’s reasonable efforts to mitigate the dangers, result in exposure to COVID-19, which could result in quarantine requirements, serious illness, disability and/or death. The Center for Disease Control and state and local health departments, are reviewing and updating their respective guidance on the pandemic and its impact nearly every day.  As a result, NC State reserves the right to restrict my access to NC State Wellness and Recreation if necessary to protect campus health and safety and/or to lessen the risk of possible COVID-19 transmission.

In consideration for being permitted to participate in these activities at NC State Wellness and Recreation, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless NC State, 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.
