Sport organizations across Canada are feeling the impact of COVID-19 with the cancellation of programs and closure of facilities. Following extreme flooding in 2010-2011, community sport organizations in Australia faced a similar dilemma. Key learnings from their experience include 1. Find strength in numbers – continue to nurture relationships, and express gratitude to staff, volunteers and partners; 2. Be proactive – assign clear responsibility for new tasks, e.g. pursuing government support; 3. Keep a paper trail – transparency and accountability is critical in a crisis.
