Respect in Sport required by OMHA for 2014-2015
Submitted By Todd Rannie on Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Starting in 2014-2015 the "Respect in Sport" program will be expanding to on-ice volunteers, on-ice officials and parents. 

As per OMHA ruling:

Currently, all Team Officials – Coaches, Trainers and Team Managers - in the OMHA are required to complete the Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program or Speak Out! certification which includes education in the areas of risk management, bullying, harassment and abuse prevention. The program will expand to include on-ice Volunteers and on-ice Officials in 2014/15.

At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey in the OMHA will be required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program as a condition of participation in 2014/15. The one-hour online course is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.


The course can be taken online by the OMHA website for a cost of $30 and is a one time course (no renewal every 3 years). Don't wait until the last minute, you have a year to get it done and it is a mandatory requirement for next season.
