Sports leagues and associations are taking extra measures in the areas of training and competition in order to safely return to sport in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The journey back to sport in a world of uncertainty has proved to be a challenge, but the ultimate goal is to return to play as soon as possible (and as safe as possible)!
New Game Plan
A return to sport under COVID-19 restrictions comes with a whole new game plan. Provinces are trying to provide support to their local leagues to troubleshoot issues, reimagine sports safety, and minimize the spread of COVID-19. One thing is for certain: we are ready to return to sport. Kids are eager to get physically active and be amongst friends. Parents are excited to watch their children’s personal development and for them to burn off some energy.
Sports leagues and associations have developed programs to keep kids engaged without being in person and have implemented innovative ways to keep the spirit of sports alive. Something we know that is important during this time is communication and our team management app allows league administers, coaches, players, and parents to communicate quickly and efficiently. In a time where social distancing protocols are our new normal staying connected via technology is more important than ever.
We are Here to Help
In response to the new concerns and problems that have come to light as a result of COVID-19, TeamLinkt’s team management app has implemented some new features to help your team, league, or association return to play:
Ensure the health and safety of all team members to help everyone return with confidence.
For Teams: Event Waivers ensure your team has a safe return to sport by allowing team members to declare their health prior to events.
For Leagues: Add a standardized and automatic event health waiver to each event in your league or association’s calendar.
With restricted attendance numbers and social distancing protocols in place as a result of COVID-19 we have created a way for parents, grandparents, and friends to spectate safely. To learn more check out our recent blog!
Complete 50 burpees, run for 10 minutes,or do something kind. Keep kids engaged with personal development and their teammates without being able to partake in actual practice or games. Pick one of our automated challenges or create your own.
We are excited to be back at the game! We have made small differences such as having a limited number of players in the dugout and social distancing from the umpire, but all the players so far have been very willing to follow these rules if it means returning to the sport they love
Despite the looming uncertainty of the pandemic, there have been some positives as a result of this transition back to sport. Teams both local and global have implemented many protocols that will carry far beyond this pandemic in the areas of personal development and sanitation.
This pandemic, though tragic, united the world in the mission for safety and resolution. Many organizations wish to support the return to sports movement and are sharing their experiences for the benefit of others.
To take advantage of all TeamLinkt has to offer, simply register your league or club through our website. You’ll be able to set up online registration, implement health wavers, live stream team events, and manage schedules in-app.
