Getting coaches ready for sport

Return to sport and physical activity  (effective 16 July 2021

Guidance for Scottish Governing Bodies of sport (SGBs) in developing sport specific guidance for Local Authorities/ Trusts, clubs and others, on the phased return of sport and physical activity in Scotland.


Getting coaches ready for sport; a 4 stage checklist to support coaches as they prepare to return to sport

As sports begin to restart, we all have a responsibility to keep each other safe. This is a helpful checklist for coaches, designed to be a good practise guide which provides some templates which coaches may want to consider using.

In addition, it is advisable to refer to your respective Scottish Governing Body, local authority or leisure trust website to access their most recent and up to date information. Some of these organisations have also developed their own COVID-19 example templates, and we would encourage you to explore them too, so that you can decide which example templates best meet your needs.


Education in sport and sport coach education guidance  (updated 2 July 2021)

A safe return to sport and physical activity is critical and it is contingent upon having in place a knowledgeable and skilled workforce. This guidance is for Scottish Governing Bodies and organisers / deliverers of education in sport, in relation to delivery and assessment. It has been developed in partnership with the SQA and HE/FE colleagues along with input from SGB’s.
