Sun protection policies & resources
Athletes, officials, coaches and spectators often spend prolonged periods of time outdoors participating. Too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation can lead to sun damage, sunburn and skin cancer. And the more you’re exposed, the greater your risk. Sports groups should encourage use of the five forms of sun protection (Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide) to help protect those involved all year round.
Sun Smart have created sample sun protection policies for sport clubs and community groups.
