The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread training and competition disruption in sports. Athletes had limited or variable access to training facilities and equipment, and many athletes around the world have been severely limited in their training and exercise regimes. A primary concern globally is the maintenance of key physical qualities and conditioning. Changes in body composition occur during periods of reduced training and this can have an impact on an athlete’s performance and injury risk with the resumption of training and competition. Strategies need to be in place promoting safe, appropriate and progressive return to play for all athletes.


The aim of this course is to provide a good understanding of return to play principles and strategies for athletes affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
