PLATFORM & APP
Your simple, single solution to youth sports injury management.
Helping schools and clubs deliver safer sport and PE

SportSmart has been developed to support the on-the-ground needs of PE teachers and sports coaches, provided at no cost.

SportSmart is fully funded and delivered at no cost to schools and clubs.
SportSmart has been designed with coaches and PE teachers in mind, to help you deliver safer sport, PE and physical activity. The SportSmart platform includes functionality for first aiders and medical professionals.
Looking after your data is a key part of SportSmart. No named data collected through the app will be used without permission. For our broader landscape research, all data has certain information removed meaning that no individual, school or club, coach or teacher or parent/carer is identifiable. This process is called anonymisation.
Any specific research project will always require consent. If a school or club chooses to be involved in a specific research project, they will need to contact the parent/carer of player or, if over 18 the player themselves, directly and ask them if they are happy to participate. Only the data of those who have consented will be used for that specific project.
Each individual project will require its own explicit consent and a participant can remove that consent at any time by contacting email@example.com.

At the moment, information recorded in the injury management platform can only be accessed by school and club staff.
We are in the process of developing a player and parent/carer portal. This will allow parents/carers and over 18s to view any relevant incident reports and sessions quickly and easily.
The SportSmart team will share regular updates of new research projects that are underway. If your organisation is interested in taking part, you will be able to volunteer directly. The team will then be in touch with further details.
