Surviving a career in adventure activities
The AAIAC, supported by the Sport and Recreation Alliance and SkillsActive, have published a book entitled Surviving a career in adventure activities.
The book recognises that a large degree of passion is one of the reasons why adventure education is such a vibrant field, but that it has a downside.
Imagine being unable to go up a hill because your knees are worn out, unable to paddle because of chronic ear problems, unable to sail because of permanent back injury.
Some can no longer even contemplate such activities as a result of a serious accident at work.
Many instructors who have ended up with these problems could have avoided them with better working practices.
The book addresses how to avoid injuries in adventure activities. Printed copies may be obtained from the Institute of Outdoor Learning.
