Adapted and Para Sport and Recreation Participation and Injury Experience Survey


We aim to learn about the injury risk associated with participating in adapted and para sports and recreation programs. Fear has often been stated as a reason that persons with a disability don't want to get involved in sports or recreation. By having those who are or have been registered in adapted, inclusive, and para sports, recreation, and physical activities complete the survey it will be possible to learn more about the risk of participation in a variety of activities. Many eligible participants may have never experienced and injury, others will have had many, and others may have experienced only one or two. No matter which group you fit into, we want to hear from you.
