The Coaching Association of Canada is excited to announce the launch of a new eLearning module designed to help coaches lead a safe return to sport participation.

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. Coaches should be aware of how participants may react to coming back to sport, psychosocial stressors, and the steps to mitigate risks.

The Leading a Return to Sport Participation eLearning module provides resources and guidance to help coaches lead a safe and adaptive transition. Coaches will have the opportunity to review potential challenges and learn practical advice to apply when creating their own return-to-sport plan.

After completing this module, coaches will be able 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 eLearning module takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes to complete and is available for free in the Locker. Get started today!
