RESPECT IN SPORT
All SPMHA Parents and Coaches/Team Officials are required to complete the Respect in Sport program. This is a requirement of Hockey Alberta, and teams cannot be finalized until all members obtain their RIS certification. Certification in the Respect in Sport program is valid for up to four seasons and is associated with a May 1 expiry date.
The Respect in Sport Program is an online certification program designed to protect our youth as well as enhance Hockey Alberta’s mandate of providing a safe and fun environment for all of our participants. It is Canada’s leading online bullying, abuse, harassment, and negligence prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders. It is offered in two different streams:
RESPECT IN SPORT PARENT
The Respect in Sport Parent Program helps define a standard of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved. Parents want to do a great job supporting their kids. Respect in Sport provides parents with the tools to do just that.
RESPECT IN SPORT ACTIVITY LEADER/COACH/OFFICIAL
The Respect in Sport Activity Leader/Coach Program educates coaches and activity leaders to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination. It may be the single most important training leaders receive to assist in creating a safe, healthy and respectful environment for all participants.
