Respect In Sport

Respect In Sport

Any parent or volunteer who wishes to help out on the ice MUST obtain the Respect In Sport Certification.

“One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, and officials, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. The Respect in Sport Parent Program, Canada’s only online training and certification program complements the Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders. This program will help define a model of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved.”
