In any contact sport, some injuries are inevitable. Hockey is no exception, and with the speed of the game, the presence of skate blades, sticks, and boards, the potential for injury always exists. Many of the common injuries can be avoided with proper preparation and good protection.
The HTCP is designed to educate people in the prevention, recognition and management of hockey-related injuries and is the only sport-specific risk management, injury management and safety education program in Ontario.
