Return to Sport Toolkit header

Sport Australia has developed a Return to Sport Toolkit that includes a suite of resources to help sporting organisations get ready to recommence training, competitions and programs in a safe, responsible and low risk manner.

Important note: State and Territory governments and their public health authorities are responsible for decisions about the resumption of sporting activities in each jurisdiction, both at the professional and community sport level. This Return to Sport Toolkit may be updated from time to time as further guidance material from governments and public health authorities is provided.

The Return to Sport Toolkit includes resources that can be used by all levels of Australian sport:

  • For National Sporting Organisations (NSOs), National Sporting Organisations for People with Disability (NSODs) and State Sporting Organisations (SSOs) recommencing their own training, competitions and programs; and
  • For participation programs and competitive sport (training and competition) conducted at local club and association level.

The Toolkit builds on the AIS Framework for Rebooting of Sport and the Australian Government’s National principles for the resumption of sport and recreation activities and includes easy to use templates and step-by-step checklists for organisations to follow when planning their resumption of sporting activities.
