The activities available at the The Surrey Circus Centre are dangerous and I assume all risks, whether known or unknown, of injury, illness or damage to my property. I understand that there is a significant risk of serious physical injury, falls from height and associated collision injuries and other damages inherent in my use of the facilities.

These risks and hazards can include, but are not limited to, injuries arising from falling and striking objects or other people including, but not limited to, paralysis resulting from striking objects; being struck by falling objects or people; failure of any part or all of the structures, flooring systems, building or training and fitness apparatus; defective, worn, uneven or separated training equipment, flooring, or pads; failing to land on a crash mat or pad or landing on an unpadded structure, including falling between crash mats or aerial equipment; failure and/or breakage of crash mats or aerial equipment or other equipment; strained or sprained muscles, joints and connective tissue; burns, sprains, fractures, scrapes, bruises and cuts, dislocations, pinched fingers, and serious injury to the head, back and neck; broken bones; personal injury, including paralysis, death, illness, property damage, and other losses. Injury or death can arise from errors in judgment, from lack of training or information, from my negligence or the negligence of the employees or agents of SCC or other parties, as well as the risks normally associated with athletic endeavours. There is no way to eliminate the risk of serious harm or death. I understand that my use of the The Surrey Circus Centre and any instruction or knowledge I obtain here is not sufficient to prepare me for all dangers and risks associated with the Activities.
