Respect In Sport - Parents
Submitted By admin on Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Respect in Sport - Parents must read.
The OMHA has mandated that at least one parent  of each player registered in the PMHA complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program by August 31, 2014. If a parent does not complete the course, your child will not be able to play hockey next season until the course is completed.


The Ontario Minor Hockey Association [OMHA] is proud to announce plans to expand the Respect in Sport program to full integration for the 2014/15 season. The OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect in Sport’ integrated association which will include all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and at least one parent or guardian of each registered player.

The Respect in Sport program is an online certification program designed to protect youth as well as enhance the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s mandate of providing a safe and fun environment for all participants. It is Canada’s leading online bullying, abuse, harassment, and negligence prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders.

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 OMHA supports all Member Associations in encouraging all parents to take advantage of this online educational tool. Program completion will be automatically updated in the Hockey Canada Registry [HCR]. The program will also form part of a new OMHA initiative dedicated to resources for parents.

The links below provide information and the direct path to take the Respect in sport Parents course. Once a parent completes the course the profile is updated online in the Hockey Canada Registry.
