Sports Club Guidance and Checklist - Covid 19

This is to tell you about the ‘Guidance on return to team sport: Covid-19 secure checklist’ that the Isle of Wight Councils Business Regulation and Public Health Protection team have produced to help assist your club and its supporters in being as covid-secure as possible, especially as our Island community returns to the sports they love.

We know that sport plays such an important role in the health and wellbeing of us all and the return to these activities is most welcomed.

The risk of COVID-19 in sport cannot be completely eradicated, but with caution and care, risk can be reduced, and the benefits of team sport enjoyed fully again.

For the foreseeable future all matches, competition, events and training will be different to previous years and therefore you must take note of the government guidance and ensure that there are measures in place to be covid-secure.  Please use the checklist below as a guide to assist in your preparations. It is based on current government guidance which may be updated from time to time and you will need to ensure that your activities are aligned with the most updated version of the following guidance:

1. Working safely guidance for providers of grassroots sport and gym/leisure facilities

2. Working safely guidance for providers of outdoor facilities on the phased return of sport and recreation in England

3. Guidance on the return to recreational team sport framework (this will have general measures and mitigation and links to specific guides for your sport).

4. Guidance on social mixing

The attached checklist is a starting point and is not exhaustive. Your facilities and sport are unique and will present specific risks.  Please download the file below for a copy of the checklist. 

Covid-19 hasn’t gone away and prevention measures are currently out best defence.  Working together as a community is key to our success and we must all pay a part.
