DEAKIN University is seeking participants for a study examining how Australians are coping without formal sport and staying active during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Researchers are calling for volunteers aged 13 to 75 from anywhere in Australia to take part in the survey, which consists of an initial 30-minute online questionnaire, followed by four 15-minute online surveys over two years.

They hope to have initial baseline data available within six weeks to help government organisations, local councils, community groups, schools, the sporting industry and individuals develop optimal programs to bring people back to sport as COVID-19 restrictions ease.
