Student note: The doctrine of primary assumption of risk applies where a consenting participant in a sporting activity is aware of the risks inherent in the activity, has an appreciation of the nature of the risks, and voluntarily assumes the risks. The doctrine is not a bar to liability if the risk is unassumed, concealed, or unreasonably increased.
