Are your Athletes at risk?
According to new data from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), 4.1 million Canadians aged 12 and older suffered an activity-limiting injury in 2009. About 35% of these injuries occurred while taking part in sport or physical exercise, the most common type of injury-causing activity. Adolescents aged 12 to 19 had the highest injury rate of all age groups covered by the survey.
The Coaches Association of Ontario is partnering with Sunnybrookâ€™s RBC First Office for Injury Prevention to educate coaches, parents, officials and sport administrators on the latest Injury Prevention topics including managing and reintegrating players with injuries and preventing injury from occurring or reoccurring.
