Safety should be something that everyone in the business of curling should be aware of and then able to establish best practices reducing the risk of injury. Curlers who are prepared will be better able to avoid injury, participate with confidence and maintain their participation long term.
Curling Canada has put together a collection of documents which outlines safety procedures, injury prevention procedures and more specifically, concussion prevention and return to play guidelines. Curling rinks are strongly recommended to adopt these procedures and best practices to focus on injury prevention and management. All of the information can be accessed by clicking here.
Any questions regarding the information provided or how to apply the procedures within your please contact Virginia Jackson, Executive Director, Nova Scotia Curling Association.
