At this time of national emergency, exercise has never been more important. Taking your classes into the nation's homes will help people stay physically and mentally active, and strengthen communities.
To help organisations, instructors and coaches to bring their sessions online, Sport Birmingham has launched a brand new live stream and on demand activity finder in partnership with Playwaze, which can be found on the homepage of their website directly under our COVID-19 headline statement.
The Partnership are pulling together information about virtual activities (particularly those that are local!) and are encouraging local people to get in touch to let them know how they have adapted their usual sessions/classes so that existing attendees, members or new participants can still get involved! People can acess the online resources provided by Playwaze to help them get online and understand the wider benefits it can bring to organisations.
If individuals or organisations are already streaming your classes or sessions then they can add the details of both live and on demand (recorded) sessions to the Playwaze platform themselves in under 5 minutes. Playwaze will then promote the activities and content in all the right places and to all the right people, for free…it's simply free marketing! This can be done by opting to 'Add your live streams here' found directly underneath the activity search on our homepage.
In a nutshell, the virtual activity finder offers the following:
- Free use of the Playwaze platform via our website homepage to post your on demand and live stream activities to help get people active at home
- The ability to promote your sessions for free to make them discoverable not only on your website but nationally to participants via many virtual activity finders.
- To make activities easy to find and book from your website/social media channels with no limit to the number of people you can engage
- To be part of one of the first organisations in the country to advertise on the first-of-its-kind OpenActive-enabled live stream and on demand activity platform
There are so many digital tools and solutions that will help you easily make the transition to online classes, so what are you waiting for?
Further information about staying safe and well during the COVID-19 Pandemic can be found on the Sport Birmingham dedicated website page.
