Safety and acknowledgement of risk
The risk of serious injury to participants in sporting and adventurous activities is extremely small but it is not non-existent. We take a great deal of care of participants’ safety. However, as in any sporting event or adventure activity, there will be some factors beyond our control. During adventure activities, such as outdoor education, participants will be briefed before every activity and are expected to follow the safety procedures explained to them and to indicate if they are unsure of what is expected of them. Children are never forced to do an activity or sporting event they feel uncomfortable with. The level of risk associated with sporting events and adventurous activities is normally very low, and probably no greater than that experienced by active people in everyday life. However, most sports involve physical contact or movement, which can have some element of risk.
