WSP Home Workout Videos

Published: May 12, 2020


We are dedicated to ensuring that during these worrying times, we continue to assist people in being active in a safe and considerate manner. In partnership with some of our programme tutors, we have compiled a number of online videos that will give you expert guidance to continue your exercise regime or kick start you into action. These videos include aerobic and strength workouts whilst also giving you helpful tips on how to exercise in your own home in light of social distancing.

We hope these videos contribute to ensuring your physical health is maintained during lockdown!

Safeguarding Training Update

Published: April 14, 2020

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, Waterford Sports Partnership has postponed all immediate courses/workshops following government advice.

One of the key workshops we deliver are the three Sport Ireland Safeguarding workshops (Safeguarding 1, 2 & 3). We were scheduled to deliver a number of these workshops in the coming weeks which have now been postponed. WSP, following guidance from the Sport Ireland Ethics Unit, will endeavour to fulfil these workshops when it is safe to do so and in line with government protocols.

In the short term, the Sport Ireland Ethics Unit and WSP recognise it is possible there will be a backlog of people within sport who will need to attend a face to face safeguarding workshop once the sector is in a position to resume normal operations. To this end the Sport Ireland Ethics unit have provided all National Governing Bodies of Sport with interim measures to assist them with any back log of Safeguarding workshops that may occur due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

It is important to note that these interim measures do not remove the requirement that individuals need to complete a face-to-face safeguarding workshop. It is still the position of the Sport Ireland Ethics Unit that every relevant individual who undertakes the suggested interim measures must also attend a face to face safeguarding workshop as normal once the sector is in a position to resume operations.

*Please note: Individuals who have any queries on this should liaise directly with their sports National Children Officer who will be in a position to further assist their clubs/members in this regard. Contact details for each National Children’s Officer can be found on the Sport Ireland website in the Ethics section or through the following link – https://www.sportireland.ie/ethics/national-children-officers

For any further questions on this, please contact Peter Jones on 087 785 5940 or email pjones@waterfordsportspartnership.ie.

#BeActive & Flatten the Curve

Published: March 25, 2020

A MESSAGE FROM SPORT IRELAND . . . .

‘As the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues, Sport Ireland are keeping the health and well-being of our staff, our sporting communities and the public at the forefront of our decision making.

We know that sport and physical activity is essential to our physical and mental wellbeing, our sense of positivity and our long term health. At Sport Ireland our mission is to continue supporting responsible sport and physical activity participation while minimising the spread of COVID-19 to flatten the infection curve.’

  • Try your best to #BeActive for at least 30 minutes a day, or 60 minutes a day for children
  • Wash your hands before and after being active, to avoid spreading or contracting the virus.
    Watch this to see how it should be done!
  • Gatherings in outdoor areas should be no more than four people, unless they are all from the same household.
  • Be sensible while exercising  – You can #BeActive in your garden, or just outside your front door, but you must keep yourself at least 2 metres away from people you don’t live with. If you’re going outside to get active you must do so within 5km of your home.

Follow @SportIreland on social media for ideas on how to #BeActive

Staying active is more important than ever right now, and even if you’re mostly in your house at the moment, there are plenty of ways you can still do so.  We have produced and collated some handy tips and exercise ideas to complete at home. These include walking ideas, challenges and exercise videos. There is something to suit all ages and abilities
Check them out below!

Have something to share? Don’t forget to share your workouts and ideas on keeping active by using the hashtags #BeActive and #ActiveWaterford on social media.

Have something to add to our page? Are you a deliverer or club offering a different alternative to your usual? Email info@waterfordsportspartnership.ie, so we can help you promote it.
