A statement from Tony Foresi, OHF President; “Education is one of the fundamental components of the OHF and its Minor Member Partners. Players and coaches have received a wealth of information about the game, but the Respect in Sport Parent program will expand those horizons. We are also encouraged by the mandatory participation for all parents. Throughout their hockey travels, be it around Ontario or further afield, parents and families are the greatest ambassadors of the OHF and we want to give them the tools to work through any situation they encounter”The Respect in Sports rollout is a unified effort for all Minor Member Partners. The course cost is $12, and the 60-minute on-line program can be done anywhere with internet access. The goal of the program “is to empower people to recognize and prevent bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD) through interactive, online certification.”
Note: The Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program is the online equivalent of Speak Out. Regardless if a Parent holds Speak Out or Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program certification, one parent per family must take the Respect in Sport – Parent Program certification.
