RESPECT IN SPORT PARENT COURSE
Submitted By Jared Robertson on Tuesday, August 19, 2014
To All BMHA Members,  

 In June of last year the OMHA announced a move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association. Currently, all team officials (Coaches, Trainers and Managers) in the OMHA are required to complete the Respect in Sport – Activity Leader Program or Speak Out Certification.




Effective August 31, 2014, in addition to Team Officials, the OMHA will require 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 be required to complete the Respect in Sport – Parent Program as a condition of participation. In other words, if at least one parent hasn’t completed the course your son(s) and/or daughter(s) will be ineligible to play hockey until such time as the one-hour online education course has been successfully completed. There has been a fair bit of press that has been dedicated recently to this OMHA initiative. This is actually a Hockey Canada initiative that has been in place in Alberta for a couple of seasons now and has been adopted by the OMHA. It is an opportunity to create greater awareness amongst us all about our roles within sports for our children and remind us all of what is truly important about sports and children and the BMHA fully supports the OMHA’s adoption of this certification effort. While the deadline is August 31, we strongly urge you not to leave this until the last minute. YOU CAN GET THIS DONE TODAY! As mentioned earlier, certification is a mandatory requirement whether your child participates in a Rep program or a House League program. You can follow the links below and GET IT DONE.

 It will cost $12 (+tax) for each family to complete the Respect in Sport certification. There has been a lot of public comment about the fee for this program. The $12.00 fee for the Respect in Sport – Parent Program includes E-learning Fund Contribution and Administration of the program to Hockey Canada (HCR integration, etc.), promotion of the program and administration, Canadian Red Cross as Curriculum Partners, PayPal/Invoicing Fees, maintenance of the program in both official languages, hosting, platform optimization, content updates (annually), 24x7 bilingual technical support, local user support and registrar training. It is important to note that ALL family members are encouraged to utilize this training as they will be able to access the training using the same username and password of the person who originally registered with the program from the family. This is NOT a fee being collected by the BMHA, nor being directed back to the BMHA. This was a conscious decision by the Association not to add this to the registration fee as many families have more than one child playing and it would have resulted in those families paying more than was required. 

 Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
