The number of research studies in physical activity and sports sciences has growth in the last decades and the non-physicians researchers of these fields have to face emerging cha- llenges related to methodological and ethics issues. In this manuscript we propose an analysis of the most relevant criticism related to the lack of specific guidelines for the aforementioned researchers involved in these typologies of studies. In this respect, we have initially provided a critical analysis of two position statements often used in sport sciences studies (i.e., Declaration of Helsinki and the editorials about sport ethics provided by the the Journal of Sport medicine), by underling several methodological and ethics criticisms of those documents for the studies did not strictly aim to sports medicine. Then, a template for an informed consent which account for and overcome the aforementioned limits has been proposed and discussed for supporting the non-physicians researches those are involved in physical activity and sport science researches. This manuscript could signify a first analysis about a topic with high impact on the physical education and sport research projects and studies but with limited number of evidences that adequately addressed the aforementioned issues.
