Attention ALL Parents -- Respect in Sport - Parent Program
Submitted By MTMHA on Monday, July 21, 2014
The OMHA has rolled out an extension of the Respect in Sport program to now include Parents. This program came into effect with the 2014-15 Season.

The ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative will require all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.  An online course is available.

Compliance with this requirement is mandatory.

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 has moved to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective with the 2014-2015 Season.

Effective August 31, 2014, in addition to Team Officials, the OMHA requires all 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 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.

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). MTMHA members are to use the PayPal option as MTMHA will not be pre-purchasing logins for its members at this time.

If not completed last season, your child(ren) will not be able to be rostered on a team this until the course is completed.
MTMHA encourages parents to complete this prior to the starting of the 2015-16 season in the fall.
