Individual Participant Responsibilities

Each individual club sport participant should recognize that he/she is responsible for his/her own person, and the well being of the group he/she is a part. Each club participant should share with the other participants the responsibility of safety and agree to follow safe procedures, and to avoid unnecessary and hazardous situations. Each club sport participant accepts responsibility for the outcome of the situations resulting when his/her actions are beyond the generally accepted practices for safety in the activity. The club will be held responsible for the actions of the individuals as well. Likewise, each club participant accepts responsibility for the actions that are outside the bounds of public law.
