Voluntary Program Participation
By registering for recreation programs and events, the participant (or participant’s authorized representative) accepts the risk of injury to the registrant, including  potential for permanent disability and death. In consideration of this, the participant chooses to participate, knowingly assuming all such risks, both known and unknown,  even if arising from the negligence of the City of Richfield, its agents or employees. For the participant, their parents, children, spouse, heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, the registrant holds harmless the City of Richfield, its agents, and employees with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, loss, or damage to person or property, arising out of, or connected to, participation in this program, whether arising from the negligence of the City or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Consent to Photography and Video Recordings of Programs
Richfield Recreation Services uses photography and video recordings to document activities and promote recreation opportunities. Participation in a recreation activity acts as your consent to such photographs and recordings unless you indicate otherwise to City staff.
