Respect in Sport Parent Program

HNO is pleased to announce it has partnered with the Respect Group Inc. to provide an education tool that will further our commitment to fostering a safe and fun hockey environment for all participants.

The Respect in Sport Program for Parents is a unique, in-depth 1 hour online program geared to providing the parent with information on how to evaluate and understand:

  • Parental influence over a child
  • Coach and leader roles in sport
  • Role of the parent and coach in ensuring a child’s enjoyment of a sport
  • Protecting your child when outside of your immediate control
  • Concussion awareness & Return to Play guidelines
  • Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model

The program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.

Beginning with the 2016-17 minor hockey season a minimum of 1 parent/guardian from each family with players at the Novice or Atom level will need to take the program along with 1 parent/ guardian from any players entering Hockey Canada programming for the first time in the peewee to midget age groups.

The cost of the one hour online program is $12.00+HST and you can complete the course at the link below:

 Respect in Sport Parent Program

NOTE - The Respect in Sport Parent Program differs from the Respect in Sport Leader/Coach Program. Therefore parents that have taken the Leader/Coach Program must still take the Parent Program.
