The Syndicat des Loisirs Actifs (SLA) was created in June 2004, under the acronym SNEPA, in order to bring together professionals from active leisure parks around an organization dedicated to defending their common interests with the public authorities as well as promoting these activities to the general public.
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of new types of leisure: Acrobatic Courses at Height (also called Accrobranche), Inflatable Water Parks, Laser Game, Fun Climb, etc… allowing a family audience to enjoy “new generation” leisure parks !
Active leisure parks offer multiple fun activities, accessible to all, and having the particularity of engaging both body and mind!
The SLA has therefore set itself the task of training the employees who work in these parks, through its training organization AFFORPAH , of developing certification standards for the installations and of negotiating specific insurance contracts. for these types of activities. It also offers its members a legal watch and press watch service, technical or human resources advice , as well as the provision of a range of standard documents allowing them to simplify their administrative procedures (employment contracts, security logs, etc.).
