Increasingly, sport organizations have to deal with the unruly and disrespectful parents of players and the effect they have on the team, the other parents, and even their own children. The Respect in Sport Parent Program, Canada’s only online training and certification program, compliments Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders. This program reinforces a parent’s role by encouraging positive sport behaviors and providing insight into other roles, such as coaches and officials.
The Respect in Sport Parent program empowers parents to ensure their child’s safety, encourages positive and effective communication, and creates a standard of respectful behavior for all parents of active kids.
The Fee for Respect in Sport Parent program is $12 per user. This fee will be covered by Hockey PEI for the 2014-2015 season. Once registered, membership is for 5 years. Upon completion of certification, you’ll be able to access the program as an online resource for up to 5 years.
For questions or assistance, please feel free to contact the Hockey PEI office at 902-368-4334.
