What happens in the event of an injury or accident?
Like any sport, we expect our share of bumps and scrapes. We put precautions in place to avoid injury, but accidents happen. More serious injuries should be reported to us via your instructor.
This is done via an accident report form. Instructors should fill out the form and send it for the attention of Membership Services.
Please find the accident report form by looking at our main menu bar, clicking on 'Members and Clubs' and then under 'Health and Safety' you will see a page named 'Reporting Accidents'. Please click on this page.
