BASES Events Update

17th March 2020

Important information for attendees and stakeholders for forthcoming events

The Board of BASES has considered all the current information available to them from Government agencies including potential bans on mass gathering. Due to this we have decided to POSTPONE all BASES events for the foreseeable future.

A separate communication for the BASES Student Conference 2020, taking place at Solent University will also be issued shortly.

The events which are being postponed are:

Assessment and Development of Change of Direction Speed and Agility - BASES Workshop

01-Apr-20 Manchester Institute for Health and Performance
BASES Student Conference 2020 15-16 Apr-20 Solent University Southampton
BASES Biomechanics Interest Group (BIG) Day 17-Apr-20 Solent University, Southampton
BASES Psychology Division Event 04-May-20 Bath University
BASES SE workshop - Understanding your client 11-May-20 University of Salford
BASES SE workshop - Professional ethics for sport and exercise scientists 13-May-20 Leeds Beckett University
BASES SE workshop - Reflective practice for sport and exercise scientists 14-May-20 Leeds Beckett University
BASES SE workshop - Safeguarding welfare in sport and exercise sciences 14-May-20 Leeds Beckett University
BASES SE workshop - Understanding your client  20-May-20 St Mary's University, Twickenham
BASES Physical Activity for Health Division Day 08-Jul-20 Sheffield Hallam University

The decision was not made lightly, but the well-being, health and safety of our members, staff and volunteers is paramount. It is important for BASES to be responsible and play our role in helping to decrease possible social transmission.

A number of sport and exercise science practitioners have already registered for some of the above events. However, with many workplaces concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their businesses, we have seen a number implement domestic travel bans and we were expecting this number to grow during the next few weeks.

Further information on revised dates will be provided as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support in this matter.

Kind regards,

Ian Wilson
