Respect in Sport Parent Program - Mandatory 2014 season
Submitted By Tammy on Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Dear Parents,

In an ongoing effort to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for our athletes in our great game, the OMHA is implementing a plan to ensure the OMHA is a complete Respect integrated organization.

Effective August 31, 2014, at least one parent or guardian of each player registered in the OMHA will be required to complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program as a condition to their child's participation.
The Respect in Sport parent 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. This portion of the program is only one of the three pillars of our respect platform. The Respect in Sport Activity Leader program is currently a condition of participation for all Team Officials (Bench Staff), and will be a requirement for all on-ice Volunteers and all on-ice referee (Age 16 and above), effective August 31, 2014.
Through this mandate, all stakeholders will be introduced to Respect education when considering the needs of our athletes.

Georgina Minor Hockey will be responsible for implementing these requirements as established by the OMHA and requires your support and cooperation with ensuring the completion of this certification. Although the OMHA has identified a deadline for compliance, many member Associations have chosen to be proactive and have set earlier deadlines for compliance. The OMHA supports Member Associations who have opted to adopt this proactive approach.
Please ensure that you provide feedback as requested upon completion of the program, to provide your insights on optimizing program content, and system functionality.
Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment and success of your child, and all OMHA participants.
Here is the link to the online program on the OMHA website: http://www.omha.net/page/show/865446-parents 

**Note if you currently have your respect in sport certification you do still need to take the parent respect in sport certification.

If you have any questions please direct them to Tammy Sedore [email protected] .
