In the course of exercising or engaging in any recreational activities while using any SUSF facilities, if you are killed or injured, SUSF will not be liable except to the extent caused by our gross negligence. In this section:
- gross negligence, means as defined below; and
- recreational activities, means your participation in a sporting activity or a similar leisure time pursuit or your participation in any other activity that involves a significant degree of physical exertion or physical risk and is undertaken for the purposes of or incidental to recreation, enjoyment or leisure.
In this warning, references to "the supplier" mean us, and references to "you" mean you and your child (if you have agreed to these Terms & Conditions on behalf of a child).
Under the Australian Consumer Law several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the supplier named on this form is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies to you:
- are rendered with due care and skill; and
- are reasonably fit for any purpose which you, either expressly or by implication, make known to the supplier; and
- might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the supplier.
Under section 139A of the Australian Consumer Law the supplier is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you sign this form, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the supplier under the Australian Consumer Law if you are killed or injured because the services provided were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in this form.
The change to your rights, as set out in this Agreement, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on the supplier's part. Gross negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission.
Time stop must be requested by a member prior to the period of absence otherwise the time stop will not be valid. Gold pass holders receive free time stops. For other pass holders a time stop fee of $15 is due at time of each request.

A time stop may be considered on other term memberships of three (3) months or longer for reasons of temporary physical incapacity. In the case of temporary physical incapacity, the member must request a Time Stop within eight (8) weeks of its occurrence with a certificate validated by a registered medical practitioner. Time stops will only be granted for the time specified in the certificate. A temporary physical incapacity can be defined as "an injury or ailment which prohibits the individual from participating in any kind of physical activity offered by the facility, for a period of up to twelve (12) months".
A decision to offer a time stop will be at the sole discretion of SUSF management. SUSF annual memberships cannot be put on hold.
