Respect in Sport


Parents play a crucial role in the development of your athletes. Respect in Sport is an effective and informative online training program for parents of active children. The one hour online certification program reinforces the role of a parent in activities of young athletes. Respect in Sport encourages positive sporting behaviours while providing insight into the various roles other individuals play. This program is about empowering parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child's fun and camaraderie of the activity. The number one reason cited for coaches, managers and officials of all ages leaving a sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. It is our hope that the Respect in Sport Parent Program will help assert proper parent behaviours in order to create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved.

THE SPORT PARENT'S PLEDGE I agree as a sport parent or, on behalf of myself and my spouse/partner that I/we will demonstrate these values in our role as sport parent.
