Survey of Skiing injuries at childrens level
We are hoping to gather some information from anyone who
sustained an injury whilst racing in the Alpine discipline at
Children's level. For some of you this may be some time ago!
Children's level basically means under 15, or racing in the
former Children1 and Children 2 categories. We are interested in
all racers - at whatever level you raced. The survey will be
managed by Snowsport England (many thanks to them), but should be
completed by racers registered with all of the Home Nations,
- i.e. all British registered ski racers in the UK and
abroad. Medical details will be treated in confidence. Dr
Jenny Shute (GBR Representative to the FIS Medical Committee) will
be responsible for coordinating the results.
We are interested in the nature of the injury, the mechanism of
how it happened (and maybe details of the conditions and of your
equipment, if you can remember). We are also very interested in how
long it kept you out of the sport, and in your recovery. Minor
injuries are of interest, as well as the ones which kept you off
snow for longer.
We are also interested in knowing if you came through
If you sustained more than one injury, please complete this survey more than once - it will help us build up a more complete picture of the injury profiles and patterns. We hope that the information you provide will help us to improve safety in the future.
