6.11 Skateboarding and other Recreational Activities Policy
Certain recreational activities, including skateboarding, long-boarding, rollerblading, and cycling, are permitted on the Central Lakes College campus on paved areas. Use of these recreational items may not be used inside the buildings.
Recreational users should operate in a safe, respectful manner always. Tricks or other artistic expression while skateboarding or cycling will not be permitted on campus and are not permitted in/on locations that could cause damage to College property. Recreational users are cautioned against boarding at high rates of speed in areas frequented by pedestrians and motor vehicles and should always yield to pedestrians.
No parkour type activities utilizing college buildings, structures, equipment, or vehicles are allowed. High‐lining and rappelling are not permitted on campus.
Personal Assistive mobility devices (e.g., Segway’s, scooters, motorized wheelchairs) may only be used in college buildings to accommodate a disability. The use of or charging of hover boards is not permitted on college property. Due to the increased risk of injury, the operation of non-program related vehicles is prohibited in the Heavy Equipment Training Areas located on Staples West Campus.
Campus Security authorities, or their designee, may request a recreation user cease their activities on campus if problematic. Campus Security will enforce this policy and continue to work with the CLC community to ensure that these activities remain safe, not only for participants, but also for pedestrians who may be in the area. These recreational activities all have inherent risks, mostly associated with falling with the potential result of bruises or scrapes, and in more serious falls, broken bones, and dislocated joints, and in the most serious cases permanent injury and possibly even death. The College’s position regarding participation in such activities is that the participant does so at her or his own risk. Central Lakes College strongly encourages the use of safety equipment associated with the recreational activity. Participants are responsible for conducting these activities in a safe manner and will be responsible for any injuries to bystanders or damage to property caused by their activities.
Failure to conduct any of these activities in a safe manner shall be considered a violation of this policy.
