RESPECT IN SPORT
Submitted By Marilynn Thivierge on Tuesday, November 8, 2016
Effective August 31, 2014, the ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative will require all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.






‘Respect in Hockey’ is a concept that receives considerable attention in both minor hockey and in community sport. The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is committed to the prevention of abuse, bullying and harassment, and the education of our membership.

At the 2013 Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s Annual General Meeting, the OMHA Board of Directors announced the OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective the 2014-2015 season. Effective August 31, 2014, the ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative will require all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.

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. Your child(ren) will not be able to be rostered to a team without completion of this course

Parents can register and complete this program at https://omhahockeyparent.respectgroupinc.com.  There is a cost of $12 and the course can usually be completed in a few hours at most; however GMHA will absorb the cost.  Please contact GMHA Registrar's to obtain the code to complete the course without paying the $12 fee.

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.

All Team Officials, On-ice Officials and On-ice volunteers will be required to complete the online Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program or in-class Speak Out! certification.


Note: The Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program is the online equivalent of Speak Out. Regardless if a Parent holds Speak Out or Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program certification, one parent per family must take the Respect in Sport – Parent Program certification.
