Assumption of Risk

Students are advised that participation in the RecSports Program involves physical risk. Participation is strictly voluntary. Injuries and their resulting cost are the responsibility of the participant. There is a possibility that a participant may be injured during the course of normal activities. This risk of injury extends to the physical being, as well as personal belongings that the individual may bring to the activity (including but not limited to eyeglasses, or personal possessions left on the sideline, in lockers, at Dem Hall, IM East, IM West, IM Circle, Munn Field, IM East Field, Vet Med Field and Munn Arena)

If the individual does not cooperate with officials and supervisors to be removed, the suspected participant maybe escorted from the facility/field by MSU DPS.

Any participant using an assumed name or ID shall have the assumed ID confiscated. The true owner of the ID must contact the Facility Director to retrieve the ID.
