Mandatory Respect in Sport - Parent - Aug 31/2014
Submitted By Pete Frehner on Friday, July 18, 2014
Attention ALL Parents -- Respect in Sport - Parent Program  Effective for the 2014-15 Season  The OMHA is rolling out an extension of the Respect in Sport program to now include Parents.   

YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THIS COURSE EVEN IF YOU HAVE PRS/RESPECT IN SPORT IN THE PAST.

The OMHA has set a deadline of August 31, 2014 for compliance with this requirement.

Your child(ren) will not be able to be rostered on a team until the course is completed. SMMHA encourages parents to complete this prior to the August 31st deadline to avoid issues when starting the 2014-15 season in the fall.

At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey in the OMHA will need to complete the online Respect In Sport Parent Program as a condition of participation. The program 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.

Respect in Sport - Parent Program

The Respect in Sport Program for Parents is a unique, in-depth 1 hour online program geared to providing the parent with information on how to evaluate and understand:

 

·     Parental influence over a child

·     Coach and leader roles in sport

·     Role of the parent and coach in ensuring a child’s enjoyment of a sport

·     Protecting your child when outside of your immediate control

·     Concussion awareness & Return to Play guidelines

·     Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model

 

Moving forward as leaders in the game, the OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective the 2014-2015 Season.

There is a $12.00 cost for the 1 hour online program. This cost is per family (one parent certified per family and other parent, step parents, grandparents, kids, etc… can take the program for free by using certified parent username and password). SMMHA members are to use the PayPal option as SMMHA will not be pre-purchasing logins for its members at this time.
