Question :
A sport pilot wants me to conduct a flight review (BFR), can I do this?
Answer :
Yes, all pilots must comply with the requirement for a flight review under §61.56. There is no difference in the endorsement an instructor would give for a flight review for sport pilot. A medical certificate is not a requirement for completion of a flight review. If he is a private pilot operating as a sport pilot, the flight review can be done in any aircraft for which he is rated. If he is “only” sport pilot, it will have to be conducted in an aircraft that meets the definition of a light-sport aircraft.

You should just give a standard flight review endorsement, as spelled out in FAA advisory circular AC 61-65E, appendix 1, item 55, as follows:

"I certify that (First name, MI, Last name), (pilot certificate), (certificate number), has satisfactorily completed a flight review of § 61.56(a) on (date).

S/S [date] J.J. Jones 987654321CFI Exp. 12-31-00"
