Challenge Course Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability

Challenge Course Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability

Syracuse University offers a challenge course, consisting of a series of team building activities, including but not limited to; low and high elements, field games and initiatives. These activities can be physically demanding and offer inherent risks. I accept responsibility for deciding if any pre-existing medical condition should limit my participation in these activities. It is not possible to anticipate all risks that could occur during this activity, but I accept all risks that could cause injury and death. If I am uncomfortable with engaging in any event or do not understand the instruction for any event, I will inform a facilitator, and will not participate in that event.

All participants in the challenge course could be exposed to the possibility of physical injury including death and disability. By signing this waiver each participant accepts the risk and responsibility as their own. By participating in the challenge course, the participant waives and releases any and all rights and claims for damages that the participant or his/her heirs or successors may have against Syracuse University and its trustees, officers, employees, students, agents, contractors, and representatives arising out of or resulting from the participant's participation in the challenge course.

I understand and agree that this waiver is to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of New York, and that if any portion of this wavier is held invalid, the remaining terms shall continue in full force and effect. This waiver shall be binding upon me, as well as my successors, personal representatives, heirs and assigns.

In the event of any suspected injury or medical condition that requires immediate attention, I consent to treatment by Syracuse University and its facilitators. If treatment becomes necessary, I agree to pay for any such treatment, including treatment received from any other health care provider, and including the cost of transportation to a medical facility.
