Feedback form is now closed.
Presented in collaboration with the University of Calgary's Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre and the Be Fit for Life Network, join us as we explore how an evidence-based warm-up can develop safe and effective movement skills to create a foundation for continued physical activity participation. Based on research in Calgary schools, neuromuscular training warm-ups in PE classes can reduce lower limb injuries by 62%. This warm-up is featured on a new poster that you'll receive at the session. This session is part of the Health and Physical Education Institute co-hosted by Ever Active Schools and the Health and Physical Education Council.
