Anyone new to MTMHA this year must complete the OMHA Respect in Sport Program.
Your child will be unable to participate with their team until the course is completed!
Read below for further details.
Effective the 2014-15 Season
, the OMHA rolled out an extension of the Respect in Sport program to now include Parents
The ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative requires all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents
to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.
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
At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey in the OMHA must 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.
Your child(ren) will not be able to be rostered on a team until the course is completed. MTMHA encourages any parents who have not completed the program to do so prior to the beginning of the season to avoid issues when hockey starts in the fall.
