At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in the Zurich Minor Athletic Association will be required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program
as a condition of participation. The one-hour online course 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 quick, on-line course MUST be completed by a minimum of one parent per family, prior to your child's registration (Friday April 11th, 2014) for the 2014-2015 season. Don't delay. Non-completion of this course will result in your player(s) not receiving OMHA approval to play on any teams.
The Respect in Sport Program for Parents is a unique, in-depth 1-hour online program geared to providing parents 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 and 'Return to Play' guidelines
- Long-Term Player Development
Please click Access Instruction
to register and complete this online course. Record the certificate number that you receive upon completion as this will be required to register your player(s) for the 2014-15 season.
Please note: If you have completed the Respect In Sports or Speak Out course as a coach, it is still mandatory for one parent per family to complete this course.
This has been mandated by the OMHA.
There is a cost of $13.56 that is to be paid online by the parent.
