Safety Guidelines for Physical Activity in Alberta Schools 2013

Pages 79-88 of the document refer to Paddlesports. These guidelines have been developed to assist school authorities in their formulation of site-specific safety guidelines for physical activity in Alberta schools. Implementation of safety guidelines should in all cases be preceded by a close review of these guidelines and appropriate modification on the part of each school authority in order to meet the specific requirements and circumstances of their respective school programs.
