Return to Sport Coach Training Webinars - Required

These webinars provide a broad overview of the SOBC Return to Sport Plan, review the required forms and documents, and go over the sport-specific protocols. There will also be opportunities for coaches to share ideas on what their practices will look like.

It is expected that attendees read and familiarize themselves with the SOBC Return to Sport Plan prior to joining the webinar.
