All University of Maine System (UMS) recreation/ fitness centers use a unified, electronic release form, and employees will sign the release form via MaineStreet Employee Self Service. 

To sign the form, navigate to your Employee Self Service homepage:

A new “UMS Recreation Center Release” form tile will display an indicator of “Not Signed” until the waiver is electronically signed. (A signed release form is now valid for four years.)

Signing the release form just takes a few easy steps:

  1. Select the “UMS Recreation Release” tile, which will bring you to a welcome screen.
  2. After reading the welcome screen text, Click “UMS Release Form” in the top bar.
  3. Read the release form text, type your name in the text box, and check the “Assented and agreed to” checkbox.
  4. Click the “Save” button on the top, right-hand corner of the screen, and a green confirmation message will appear at the top of the window. 

After clicking the “Exit” button, the indicator text on your Recreation Center Release tile will say, “Signed: (date of signature)” and indicate the date that it’s due again. That’s it! No more paper forms, no more need to complete a waiver at each UMS recreation center you visit. 

Please note that all employees who intend to visit a UMS Recreation Center should complete the electronic waiver, even if you’ve completed a paper form already. If you have any questions about completing the form, please contact your local campus recreation/fitness center.
