Guidelines on the Safe Return to Sport and Physical Activity for Older Adults

Thursday 06 August 2020

As a result of Covid-19, there are significant barriers to the resumption of physical activity for older people. This is linked to increased anxiety, nervousness, loss of confidence, feelings of exclusion, weakening of physical activity related social contact and physical deconditioning. 

We all want to see older people retrun to sport and physical activity in a safe and enjoyable way.  Sport Ireland and Age and Opportunity have developed guidance measures and considerations that will support this return to recreational sport and physical activity by older people and groups across the country.

It is hoped the following guidance will help inform, encourage, build confidence and in particular reassure older people as they return to a more active lifestyle, in accordance with the public health guidelines and the recommendations of their own sporting body or organisation.
