In an attempt to determine the occurrence, type and severity of injuries of active members of the SLSAA, sixty-six subjects completed a questionnaire relating to their last two injuries received through paddling. Four categories were clearly established, those with no injuries (28.8%), those with intrinsic injuries only (16.7%), those with extrinsic injuries only (36.4%) and those with both intrinsic and extrinsic injuries (18.2%). It was noted that those who suffer intrinsic or both types of injury are older than those who suffer extrinsic injuries or no injuries. Recommendations are made for the prevention and reduction of both types of injuries.
