Central Oregon Community College does not provide primary insurance for Club Sports/Intramural participants. COCC provides catastrophic insurance with an extremely high deductible. The participant is responsible for meeting the deductible.

The undersigned, and/or parent/guardian, further releases Central Oregon Community College, its employees, agents, officers and directors from all liability for personal injury resulting from the failure of the undersigned, and/or parent/guardian, or other students in the club to obey safety regulations and directions of the group leader, or resulting from the exercise of judgment by the group leader in good faith in response to emergencies and exigencies which occur on the trip; provided however, that nothing contained herein shall excuse the person assigned to be a trip leader by a member of the faculty from the responsibility to act with reasonable care for the safety of the participant during the course of the trip appropriate to the circumstances.
