Respect in Sport for Parents
Hockey Manitoba requires that 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 1. Should certification not be obtained by November 1, the minor hockey player will be ineligible to participate in any Hockey Manitoba sanctioned activity until one parent or legal guardian is certified.
Respect in Sport for Parents is an online training program reinforces a parent's role in a child or youth’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviours, 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.
Please note: If you have already taken respect in Sport for Parents, you do not need to re-take it. This is for new player registrations only, so if you registered another child this year, you will have to go into your profile & link the new child that you registered this year to your parent profile.
1. How will the family accounts of the Respect In Sport Parent Program link to the Hockey Canada registration?
At registration, the parent must associate a child or children to her/his profile (Child Management) where an association must be selected. After a parent is certified, and assuming he/she has associated a child to his profile, the Hockey Canada registration record of the child is updated under Clinics and Qualifications, including the Respect in Sport certificate number.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE PERSON REGISTERING FOR THE COURSE COMPLETES THE FOLLOWING SECTION: Enter the proper child information in the Child Management Page, then click on No Further Children to Add when done.
2. What if I do walk-in registration? Do I need my Respect in Sport number to register my child to play hockey?
The parent or parents can still take and pay for the course online at hmbparent.respectgroupinc.com. Once the parent has completed the course, they should print out the Respect in Sport certificate number and bring that printout to the “walk-in registration” day(s).
3. How will the area associations know who has completed the course?
Our SJAMHA registrar will ensure all parents of registered players have complee the RIS for Parents Course.
