August 12, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing is delighted to be able to bring members a new, free, online training platform that is designed to help coaches and those running gyms deal with the threat of COVID-19.

ReActivate can help to equip anyone working or volunteering in the sport, fitness, leisure and physical activity sector in England with the knowledge and skills they need to confidently return to their activities.

Funded by Sport England, commissioned by CIMSPA and delivered by Future Active Workforce, it brings government and industry guidance to life in an easily digestible format.

Accessible via PC, laptop, tablet or mobile, among the topics covered are how to look after yourself as well as your partic­ipants, members and other club users, planning, health and safety, first aid, cleaning and managing expectations.

Completing the ReActivate Training Package is rewarded with a digital certificate, with the option to upgrade to a recognised qualification with Transcend Awards.

“Sport and physical activity play a crucial role in our health and wellbeing and we recognise the vital role of those who work in the leisure sector, as well as the countless volunteers and sports coaches who keep our communities active,” said Tim Hollingsworth, CEO of Sport England.

“It is absolutely vital to give everyone who needs it access to the resources and training they need to confidently return to their roles.”
