Sport Australia’s Return to Sport Toolkit, developed in partnership with Hockey Australia, comes with comprehensive checklists, adaptable COVID-19 safety plans and templates that can be used by sporting organisations at any level.
The Toolkit builds on the AIS Framework for Rebooting of Sport and the Australian Government’s National principles for the resumption of sport and recreation activities and includes easy to use templates and step-by-step checklists for organisations to follow when planning their resumption of sporting activities.
Four elements of a safe return to sport:
- Plan – Implementing plans, processes and systems to meet government and health requirements, and provide safe sport environments.
- Prepare – Ensuring safe facility and participant practices, like hygiene practices, attendance registers at training and limiting shared equipment as much as possible.
- Respond – Being prepared for management of a COVID-19 outbreak, noting things can change quickly in your local area.
- Recover – Consideration of protocols to optimise good public and participant health into the future.
