The New Standard for Warming Up:Supporting quality PE through movement skill development, fitness and injury prevention

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
