Calgary hockey parents will need to take good behaviour course every four years

 

CALGARY — Minor hockey parents in Calgary will soon have to take a refresher every four years of an online course designed to limit bad behaviour at the rink. Hockey Calgary was the first minor sports organization in Canada to introduce the mandatory Respect in Sport course for hockey parents and coaches in 2010. It requires at least one parent from each hockey household to obtain course certification. MORE

Sport Calgary asks amateur sports groups to implement online Respect education

 

Sport Calgary is urging all of the city’s amateur sports associations to promote the online Respect In Sport education course, and consider making it mandatory for all parents and coaches working with youth.

They also hope to organize a Sport Summit in the next year inviting representatives from a range of sport organizations to share strategies and solutions for improving respectful behaviour.

In response to Hockey Calgary’s warning last week that bad behaviour among parents and athletes is rising at the rink, Sport Calgary spokeswoman and two-time Olympic gold medallist Catriona Le May Doan says it’s time all parents understand the importance of respectful behaviour at their kids’ sporting events.

“I’ve seen it all, at all levels, as an athlete, as a coach, as a volunteer and as a parent,” said Le May Doan, senior director of community engagement at Sport Calgary. MORE

Respect in rinks now mandatory for Ontario hockey parents

As thousands of children across Ontario prepare for another hockey season, their parents will be receiving some mandatory off-ice training. Before any player steps onto the ice this season, their parents are required to complete an online Respect in Sport course.

The program has already been rolled out in other provinces across Canada as organizations rally to combat bad parental behaviour. This is the first season for it in Ontario.

“Parents are a key component of the sports experience,” said Wayne McNeil, co-founder of the Respect Group, the company providing the course. “They are the reason why referees and officials quit. In a lot of cases, they are the reason their own kid either quits or has a bad experience in sports.” MORE

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
