Sport Ireland E-Learning Course for Covid-19 - Phase 3

Sport Ireland Covid-19 Return to Sport

Since March, Sport Ireland has been providing the sport sector with up to date guidance and advice on COVID-19. This information has been in line with recommendations from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, the Department of Health, the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, the Department of the Taoiseach and the National Public Health Emergency Team. 

This Sport Ireland COVID-19 Return to Sport e-learning resource is intended to supplement Government advice through the Roadmap for the Reopening of Society and Business with specific reference to sport and physical activity. At all times, the health of those participating in and facilitating sport and physical activity is priority. Whilst risk in relation to the spread of COVID-19 cannot be eliminated, it can be minimised.

Now the training is available for Phase 3. We encourage everyone to read this through whether you are a participant, volunteer, coach, parent or administrator at your badminton hall.
