I understand that I am voluntarily participating in recreational activities at NC State University 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.

In consideration for being permitted to participate in these activities at NC State University 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.
