Code of Conduct

In order to maintain a high level of service to its participants, RecSports has
established a code of conduct for all participants to follow. The RecSports staff
appreciates your cooperation in creating a friendly and positive environment for
recreation and social opportunities in all facilities. An explanation of the code of
conduct is listed below.

Participation in all RecSports facilities and programs is a privilege. All
participants who participate in RecSports programs or who utilize RecSports
facilities agree to adhere to the following code of conduct:

Participants are expected to:

  • Treat the RecSports staff and facilities with respect;
  • Act with character and courtesy while respecting the rights, welfare, and
    dignity of all others in RecSports facilities;
  • Adhere to the rules and policies set by RecSports and the university in its facilities and programs; and
  • Act in a safe, responsible manner regarding themselves and others.

Participants engaging in inappropriate behavior or violating RecSports/university
policies in RecSports facilities may be subject to have their privileges of
participation revoked and could face possible university disciplinary action.

Assumption of Responsibility

The following applies to all RecSports facilities and programming:

RecSports program participation is voluntary and individuals use facilities at their own risk. Participation in any physical activity involves inherent risk, and even when safety precautions are utilized, injuries and accidents can occur. The Department of RecSports would like to encourage each individual to consult their physician and obtain adequate personal health/accident insurance prior to participation in our programs. UT does not provide personal health or medical insurance for participants.
