National sport organizations are working to ensure that Canadians can participate in their sports in safe ways. PHE Canada has summarized their recommendations below. If you are looking for a sport that isn’t included on the list below, please contact ellenlong@phecanada.ca.

PHE Canada recognizes that sport is an important part of physical education and encourages teachers to include sports in their plans for the fall. The guidelines below are being shared to increase the confidence of teachers to include sports in their planning and integrate the appropriate precautions and guidelines suggested by National organizations.

Although each sport is unique in its requirements and delivery, some recommendations are common among all sports: 

  • All participants (players, coaches, trainers, etc.) should self report if they are feeling ill or have been exposed to the virus. 
  • Physical distancing should be enforced in all situations. A minimum of 2m should be kept between all participants at all times. 
  • No physical contact should be permitted among participants.
  • All equipment must be properly cleaned and disinfected before and after each use. 
  • Hand and personal hygiene should be emphasized and completed by all participants before and after activity.
  • Bring hand sanitizer to disinfect your hands before and after play and avoid touching your face.
  • Cheering, singing, hand shaking and high-fives are high risk activities and should not occur.
  • Bring only what you need to play, no extra personal belongings should be included.
