Northern Ireland – Sport NI publishes framework

Guiding progression towards a resumption of sport and physical recreation in Northern Ireland

The Sport NI Guide for Sports, gives high level essential guidance on planning the resumption of sporting activity providing a reference point for all the on-going support available right across the sports sector at all levels, from single participants at local level to clubs and through to high performance and professional athletes.

The aims include to:

  • guide the progression of sports in Northern Ireland to a resumption of sport and physical recreation;
  • provide a bridge between the Executive’s 5 Stage process and the more detailed protocols required by individual sports;
  • emphasise the importance of mental health and well-being of all participants
    maintain our collaboration with Governing Bodies and update our guidance accordingly.
