  • But when they get their comms right, people feel; valued, grateful, optimistic, excited, trusted and expectant.
Good communication can help people stay connected during these difficult times and can help ease anxiety around returning to sport/activity when the time is right. Communicating and engaging as a virtual club and making the most of social media channels has never been so important.
