Two Approaches to Limiting Liability in Recreational Sports.
Smissen, Betty van der
NIRSA Journal, v13 n3 p30,35-39 Spr 1989
The article discusses ways in which recreation professionals can limit liability in recreation activities by facilitating participation without the liability of sponsorship (e.g. sign-out forms, rental agreements), and by endeavoring to place upon participants certain responsibilities through "Agreements to Participate" in sponsored activities, which would ameliorate damages.
