We hope that you are well and that you are coping with the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. There is no doubt that the impact of this public health threat on sport has been vast.

We want to assure you of our commitment to sport in Australia and to supporting sports medicine communities to get through this challenging time.

We are here to serve you: our vibrant multi-disciplinary community of Sports Physicians, Sports Doctors, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Dietitians, Psychologists, Sports Scientists, Sports Trainers, Teachers and other professionals and volunteers working in sport.

Although our face to face services have been paused, we will continue to provide you with leading information, expertise and education through online publications, online learning and virtual events using our existing platforms and by extending our offerings in creative new ways.

Even while sport remains suspended, we will increase our focus on the relevant safety issues such as infection control, mental health and the health effects of social isolation and physical activity restrictions.

We will work with the government, our partners and our members to help lead a recovery in sport and exercise for the Australian community and to support future sustainability and innovation in our sector.

The challenges presented by COVID-19 for our community are continuing to emerge day by day and we are here for you.

We encourage you to reach out to our team by phone on 1300 711 211 or email members@sma.org.au.
