- Fitness & Skill – Participants’ Annual Heath & Medical Records are reviewed, and leaders have confirmed that prerequisite fitness and skill levels exists for participants to take part in the activity safely.
- Equipment & Environment – Safe and appropriate equipment, courses, campsites, trails, or playing fields are used correctly.
WHAT TO DO WHEN AN INCIDENT HAPPENS WHILE BUILDING GRIT.
