Return to Sport: Group Training Risk Assessment with Dr. Doug Richards

In partnership with Own the Podium and the Chief Medical Officers of the COCCPC and the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network, a COVID-19 Risk Assessment Tool for Return to Sport has been developed.

Recently the response to COVID-19 in Canada has shifted to questions regarding how best and when to re-open Canada and restore operations to priority aspects of Canada’s economy.  High performance sport in Canada must also address a thoughtful ‘return to sport’ process that protects the health and safety of athletes, coaches and practitioners, and respects the public health authority guidelines at the federal level as well as in each province and municipality.

On Wednesday May 13th, CSIO hosted a webinar with Dr. Doug Richards discussing the tool and it’s usage with Provincial Sport Organizations. Please note, this is NOT a ‘permission’ tool, it is meant to be used to assess the risks in your training/competition environments so appropriate mitigation strategies can be implemented.
