The Respect in Sport Activity Leader/Coach Program educates youth leaders, coaches, officials and participants (14-years and up) to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD). It may be the single most important training your leaders will receive to assist them in creating a safe, healthy and respectful environment for all participants!
One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, officials and athletes, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. The Respect in Sport Parent Program will help define a standard of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved. Parents want to do a great job supporting their kids. Respect in Sport provides parents with the tools to do just that.
With one, convenient and consistent program for all coaches in Manitoba, we empowered our coaches to be even better role models, and given them the necessary tools to deal with these tough issues.
The simple, consistent and relevant message Respect in Sport programs deliver to parents and volunteers across the country assists Hockey Canada to achieve this goal.
Encouraging kids to have fun, be part of the team and learn new skills is what we, as parents, need to focus on.
