  • The prospect of travel may raise concerns amongst athletes and staff, be sensitive to their current individual circumstances both in and out of the sporting context. It is important to understand the individual's feelings about the prospect of travelling. Ensure to have early and regular dialogue with every team member being considered for international travel.
  • It is important to provide a forum where team members can raise any concerns they may have. The sport should consider organising a 1:1 with the team member and the COVID-19 medical officer if there are any specific concerns around their individual circumstances.
  • Risk assessment plans should be made readily available, and travel protocols should be shared with athletes/staff as soon as possible and at regular intervals during the travel planning process. This will ensure that anyone who may be considered for travel is familiar with any protocols and procedures well in advance of travelling. It may also help to highlight any concerns around the travel process that they may not have considered.
  • Sports are encouraged to gather insight from athletes and staff post travel to inform future travel. Sharing of insight between sports is also recommended. For information on where other sports have already travelled please contact [javascript protected email address].
