Sport NI open applications for Covid Safe Sport Packs for clubs in Six Counties

September 29th, 2020

GAA clubs in the Six Counties can avail of a ‘COVID Safe Sport Pack’ as part of a new Sport NI programme in partnership with the Department for Communities.

The programme aims to assist sports organisations with their management of the ease of lockdown and a safe return to sport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The contents of the packs are designed to reflect current scientific evidence around the most effective methods of reducing the infection of COVID-19 including;

– Increased hygiene measures (including hand hygiene)

– Use of PPE when social distancing cannot be maintained

– Links to education material around best practice and minimising infection spread

These packs are designed to help sports clubs meet Government and PHA guidelines around a safe return to sport and assist in providing materials for the implementation of risk mitigation protocols for COVID-19 infection control.

There will be initially 2500 packs available, allocated on a first come first given basis. No deadline had been set for applications, however Sport NI advise that clubs should apply as soon as possible.

Applications can be made directly through: https://bit.ly/2Gi7woC.

Further information on the packs and all return to sport information can be found on Sport NI website: www.sportni.net.
