Description

The process of restarting sport activities presents significant challenges for coaches and participants. After an extended period of restricted training and competition, participants may experience a variety of physical and psychological effects that will influence their return to sport participation.

Coaches play an important role in providing a supportive environment for participants during this transition period. This eLearning module provides guidance and resources to help coaches create a safe and adaptable return-to-sport plan. 

After completing Leading a Return to Sport Participation, you will be better prepared to:

  • Identify the physical and psychosocial effects participants may be experiencing
  • Understand the role of a coach in facilitating the return to sport participation
  • Design a plan to return to sport participation during COVID-19
  • Lead and communicate with empathy

This free eLearning module takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes to complete. Coaches who are maintaining their NCCP Certification will earn one NCCP PD point upon completion of this module.

Visit the Return to Sport webpages [Hyperlink: https://coach.ca/return-to-sport] for all information related to the return to in-person sport activities. This resource hub includes tools and guidelines to support coaches, sport administrators, and NCCP delivery partners during the process of returning to sport participation.
