Respect In Sport


The Respect in Sport Program is an online certification program designed to protect our youth as well as enhance Hockey Alberta's mandate of providing a safe and fun environment for all of our participants. It is Canada's leading online bullying, abuse, harassment, and negligence prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders. It is offered in two different streams:

Hockey Alberta has mandated that effective for the 2018 - 2019 season, they will require re-certification every four seasons for the RIS Parent and Activity Leader/Coach online programs.  This will be mandatory for all families with players in sanctioned minor hockey and team officials.  A minimum of one parent/caregiver per household must complete the Parent program.  As well, Speak Out certification will no longer be recognized; those with Speak Out will require the appropriate Respect In Sport Program (mainly if you are coaching)

An email from the RIS-Parent system will come to you if it is due. A player can not be registered until this program is completed.

It demonstrates negative behaviours and provides ideas of how a situation may be better handled, includes valuable information from subject matter experts delivered in a clear and concise fashion, and asks questions of parents based on scenarios presented.
