Remote Coaching: Do's & Don'ts

In respect of any coaching or instruction that is undertaken remotely (either live or pre-recorded), it is strongly recommended that the coach should:

1. at the commencement of the session, advise participants:

    • that by participating they are doing so at their own risk;
    • a suitable, non-slip floor space is required and any potential obstructions in the vicinity are removed before they participate;
    • to avoid activities if they have, or suspect they may have any current health concerns, injuries, aches and pains;
    • avoid the use of blades, weapons or sharp instruments of any description;
    • avoid physical contact with other participants and where appropriate, adhere to social distancing guidelines;

2. ensure that sessions are conducted for the benefit of existing members/participants/contacts only who have demonstrated sufficient suitability to participate;

3. continue to only instruct activities in which you are qualified to do so;

4. record the session. Retaining the recording for a period of up to thirty-six (36) months may assist in any claim made against you.
