Sporting events in Australia and around the world have been postponed, cancelled or adjusted to meet safety requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic. As safety should be the number one priority, there are a few organizations that have always aided students and athletes. They are worth looking into and knowing about now that sporting adjustments must be made. As an Institute of Sport, at Leaders of Evolution, we’ll take you through our e-learning courses for growth and development in student-athletes, then highlight other organizations and information we have found useful in uplifting the Australian athletic community.
Leaders of Evolution Student-Athlete Sports Development Courses
As an Institute of Sport, Leaders of Evolution has a number of e-learning courses specifically designed for young leaders in sport, in need of career development and more. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic placed many events, work and schooling online, non-traditional learning methods were emerging as proactive solutions for children’s’ needs. With online learning, a new necessity, Leaders of Evolution’s e-learning hub and sports development courses showcase the opportunity for student-athletes to build on essential skills that will benefit them on and off of the field.

4 C’s of Leadership: Competence, Confidence, Character and Connectedness
All of our sports development courses and lessons are guided by the 4 C’s of leadership. As an institute of sport, we believe these 4 C’s are useful during competition and training but extend beyond athletics. These 4 C’s include Competence, Confidence, Character and Connectedness. They are designed to help students understand what they are learning, why it is important and how they have progressed through each lesson with a purposeful goal in mind.
Self-awareness of these 4 C’s and how you relate to them as a student is fundamentally important in the sports development courses. Additionally, self-awareness and intuitiveness are important practices in all of our courses at Leaders of Evolution, not just the lessons for student-athletes.
After students self-analyze themselves on the basis of the 4 C’s of leadership, the sports development courses take students through specific leadership traits and characteristics they will be working on in future lessons, goal setting models and examples of strong leadership in sport.
Overall, Leaders of Evolution’s Institute of Sport provides students and teachers with a holistic approach to leadership education and strives to continue to release more lessons and courses to improve the skillset of future leaders. See how your students can practice strengthening their leadership skills through remote learning and our sports development courses.

Australian Government Department of Health: How to Stay Active
While social distancing is pertinent in preventing the spread of COVID-19, exercising during these unfamiliar times and changes is important for your physical, emotional and mental health. The Australian Government Department of Health says that regular exercise has benefits that include:
- Reducing the risk of health conditions like stroke and heart disease
- Controlling weight

Physical Activity During COVID-19
Right now, many places in Australia do not allow you to go to gyms or fitness centres, swim freely in public pools, attend indoor yoga or dance classes or exercise in large groups of people. There are other ways to maintain physical activity, however, and as an Institute of Sport, we recognize the importance of maintaining active in creative ways. Outside you can go for a walk or jog, ride a bike, scooter or rollerblades and practice sport technique alone. At home, try weight training, yoga, pilates, dancing, virtual fitness classes and bodyweight training on a yoga matt.
