Brock hosting webinar for sport organizations with legal questions amid COVID-19

Brock University’s Centre for Sport Capacity (CSC) wants to help organizations looking for answers to legal questions during the unprecedented situation facing the world.

Sport has not been immune from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and on Thursday, April 30, Brock’s CSC will host a free 60-minute webinar for sport and recreation organizations, employees and students.

Giving a presentation and answering questions will be Hilary Findlay, a recently retired Associate Professor of Sport Management at Brock who specializes in risk management, regulatory issues, contracts and other legal issues affecting sport and recreation organizations.

Among other topics, the webinar will focus on:

  • Contracts entered into but which can no longer be fulfilled such as membership and registration fees, league activities, events, sponsorships and employment.
  • Risk management and the health and welfare of athletes, coaches, spectators, staff and others associated with the organization.
  • Governance and operational issues such as running a virtual AGM, dealing with employment matters, maintaining rental agreements and communicating with members.

An RSVP is not required; however, attendees are encouraged to pre-register and submit questions here by Wednesday at noon.

After the event, the webinar and Q&A will be posted on the Centre for Sport Capacity website.
