Health, Wellness, and Recreation
Access to Gymnasium, Weight Room and Swimming PoolLife is full of risks. In physical activity programs there are risks to the participant. All risks for involvement in sports and recreation at Georgia Perimeter College cannot be removed but can be reduced. It is important that the College create policies and procedures that minimize participant risks as well as litigation against the College and University System. The primary purpose of these policies is to provide safe access for students and employees of the College. Implementation of these policies will ensure a safe facility in which the risk of injury and possible litigation is minimized.
