Respect in Sport’s course gains support of hockey parents, coaches
A Calgary-designed course aimed at promoting better behaviour in coaches and parents at minor games seems to have the support of its participants.
Respect in Sport’s one-hour online course has been mandatory over the past three years for hockey parents and coaches in Alberta, as well as in other parts of the country. More than 91,000 parents and coaches have completed the course across Canada.
Mount Royal University surveyed 1,000 participants about the course. Of those, 70 per cent believe the course should be taken more than once. Only eight per cent of those who filled out the survey opposed the program. MORE
