Staying safe in sports
It is important to understand the risks associated with any sport before you begin practising it and ribbon twirling is no exception. Ribbon twirling is a fast-paced, graceful art as well an athletic sport. It also known as rhythmic gymnastics and is a kind of sport that carries a very high risk of injury if moves and stunts aren’t performed with necessary care.
Before you enrol on a ribbon-twirling course, or take part in any activity like this for the first time, it is vital that you make sure that whoever is responsible for your training and safety (be this a company, coach or instructor) is fully qualified. Approach each move with care and don’t attempt anything above your skill level before you feel ready. If you don’t feel comfortable doing something, tell your coach. Your coach or instructor should supervise you at all times, as well as other gymnasts taking part in ribbon twirling, to avoid collisions. Make sure you practise at a safe distance from other athletes.
You should always practise within a safe environment, with high impact floors covered by thick landing mats and foam. All flooring should be secured to avoid slips and the area where you practise should be empty and free of obstructions and tripping hazards. Make sure that you warm up properly at the beginning of each session and always wear the correct clothing, wrist straps and footwear to keep you safe.
What do I do if something goes wrong?
If the worst happens and do you suffer an injury at the hands of a company, your compensation will be covered by their insurance policy. If an individual is at fault, you may have to sue them for compensation. Unless they are rich, however, this may mean your money has to be paid out in instalments, which may take longer. Whatever the situation, try to get witness accounts from those around you and any photographic evidence if possible to support your claim.
