Implanon and snowboarding? Breaking?

Patient: Hi, I’m currently on the implanon implant after having decided it was the best option for me. I love it but I’m concerned for my active sports life. I’m hoping to start snowboarding lessons soon and was hoping someone could tell me if there is any threat of it breaking or being broken from elbow pads wrapped tightly around the area or falling? Are there any risks implanon will face? Thanks
