High-risk sports
As CST primarily hosts courses offered by Y+S, the respective Y+S guidelines are binding. If no Y+S guidelines exist for a specific sport, the guidelines or recommendations of the relevant national sports association apply.

High-risk sports must take place under the supervision of Y+S leaders, instructors or PE teachers with the necessary qualifications. This applies to the following disciplines in particular: 

Y+S disciplines:

  • Group A: golf, trampolining, cycling (mountain biking, road racing, BMX), combat sports (fencing, judo, jiu-jitsu, karate, wrestling, Swiss wrestling).
  • Group B: mountain sports (sport climbing, mountaineering), archery, swimming-related sports (swimming, free diving, lifesaving, synchronized swimming, water polo, diving), water sports (windsurfing, sailing, canoeing [regatta and white-water], rowing, stand-up paddle boarding [SUP]).

Non-Y+S disciplines: Air games, scuba diving, canyoning, hydrospeed.
