CIMSPA publishes new Delivering sport and physical activity online policy

The use of online and digital platforms has been a valuable resource for sport and physical activity practitioners for some time, and has accelerated during Covid-19, allowing many to continue to deliver sessions, despite the restrictions. The benefits to customers are also clear, with online delivery being an affordable and convenient way to maintain participation and promote overall health and wellbeing.

With this increased use of online platforms, there are many factors to consider in ensuring the continued safety of both participants and practitioners. Following a consultation with the
sector, and with support from partners across the sector, CIMSPA has created its first UK-wide policy for delivering sport and physical activity online.

Key information topics found within the guidance includes:

- Insurance

- Guidance on disclaimers and pre activity considerations

- Safeguarding

- Licensing Compliance
