Respect in Sport for Parents
is an effective and informative online training program for parents of active children. This unique certification program compliments Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders by reinforcing a parents role in a child or youth's activities, encouraging positive sport behaviors, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals (such as coaches and officials) play. This program empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child's fun and camaraderie of the activity.
At the 2015 Semi Annual meeting, Hockey Manitoba's Board of Directors approved the following motion:
Certification for the Respect in Sport for Parents program must be obtained by at least one parent or legal guardian of any minor hockey player on a Hockey Manitoba roster by November 1st. Should certification not be obtained by November 1st, the minor hockey player will be ineligible to participate in any Hockey Manitoba sanctioned activity until one parent or legal guardian is certified.

This certification will take approximately 1 hour. This program does not have to be completed in one setting and you can pause the program and continue when convenient to you.
You will be required to provide your child's Hockey Manitoba Hockey ID number or their name as originally registered with Hockey Manitoba. Your child's ID Number can be obtained from Brynn Smith (email@example.com) or Sandy Phillips (firstname.lastname@example.org) as it is listed on the official Roster for each year.
At this time we would ask that you please print a copy of your certificate once completed so that your certificate number can be provided to the KMHA Executive if needed.
