Great to see many sign up to this and start to work through the online info and gain points which will ultimately convert to certification.

Sport England and CIMSPA have funded the commission of a new industry recognised ReActivate COVID-19 Awareness Award that we now have access to at the CPGA.

Made up of several different modules, the award is designed to ensure that people are suitably trained to deliver their roles in the safest possible way.

Whilst it is very unfortunate, we are having to hang up our oars for a second lockdown, this as an opportunity to make the most of the situation, learn, and get ready for our return in the future.

There are three option for the training, as listed in the ‘Access to free training’ section, the name of the training option might change, but we will let you know, the content will not change unless there is a update of information.  

Many within clubs can benefit from completing this training and there is no limit to the number of people that can register. 

To access the free training:
1) Go to
2) Click ‘Not registered? Select a plan’
3) Select the plan that best fits your role/responsibilities at your club, there are the options of three
                1. FRONT LINE COACHING –
4) Complete the signup process

Once you’ve completed the signup process and logged in you can complete the award by clicking the library button on the top menu.

You now see all of the modules that make up the award. Each module has several resources you will need to work through as well as knowledge check that you will have to pass.

When you complete the knowledge check for every module, you will be emailed a link to your certificate. You can also access this by clicking the certificates button on the top menu.

This will be held in the via an online platform on the 17th January 2021.
The deadline has now passed for applications and any proposals.
A full agenda will be sent to all in due course.

With the cancellation of 2020 a number of clubs chose to rolL their shipping fees over to 2021.

With the cancellation of 2021, there is now the option of having a refund of your shipping fee or leaving is with the IOSSC for shipping in 2022.

Note from the IOSSC: Our position, is that those who have either booked for 2021 or rolled over from this year (2020) can request a refund. Or, they can roll over their booking to 2022 and beat any price increases. 
Please contact the IOSSC direct via this email to inform them whether you wish to have a refund or not of your shipping fees. Make sure that you clearly identify your club in the email
