Position statement: Preventing snowboarding injuries

The Canadian Association for Sports and Exercise Medicine’s (CASEM) position statement on snowboarding injuries provides background information and recommendations for athletes. Ski hill administrators, coaches and parents would also find this information relevant and useful. Some of the highlights from this article centre around:

  • Proper pre-season conditioning and training
  • Using protective equipment that is suited to body type, skill level and in good condition
  • Respecting others and following the rules of the resort

The full position statement is available on the CASEM website.
