Sledding Safety
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends the following safety guidelines:

Essential Safety Guidelines

  • Sled only in designated areas free of fixed objects such as trees, posts, and fences.
  • Children in these areas must be supervised by parents or adults.
  • All participants must sit in a forward-facing position, steering with their feet or a rope tied to the steering handles of the sled. No one should sled head-first down a slope.
  • Do not sled on slopes that end in a street, drop off, parking lot, river or pond.


Preferred Safety Guidelines

  • Children under 12 years old should sled wearing a helmet
  • Wear layers of clothing for protection from injuries.
  • Do not sit/slide on plastic sheets or other materials that can be pierced by objects on the ground.
  • Use a sled with runners and a steering mechanism, which is safer than toboggans or snow disks.
  • Sled in well-lighted areas when choosing evening activities.
