OMHA implements Mandatory Parent RIS Course for 2014
Submitted By Dan Bailey on Thu 03 06, 14
As a condition of participation in the 2014/2015 hockey season, the OMHA has mandated that parents of players registered with the OMHA are required to take the Respect In Sport (RIS) Parent Program. 

Parents of players in CHIPs, Tyke, House League and all boys LL, AE and Representative teams must complete the online course prior to the August 31st, 2014 deadline.

Don't delay in completing as this will result in your player not receiving OMHA approval to play on any teams!

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 and Return to Play guidelines
  • Long-Term Player Development

Hanover Minor Hockey will be responsible for implementing these requirements as established by the OMHA and requires your support and cooperation with ensuring the completion of this certification.


The cost of the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program is $12 plus HST which can be paid via credit card or PayPal when registering online.  


Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment and success of your child, and all OMHA participants.

When completing the course it is important to ensure all your children participating in minor hockey are properly entered in the 'Child Management' screen.  Children's names should be entered using the same spelling as when they were registered with Hanover Minor Hockey.  If you cannot find your child in the data base please Contact Us for assistance.


Upon completion of the program please ensure to save a copy of your certificate and the confirmation email for future reference.  

Respect In Sport Parent Frequently Asked Questions 

How is Respect in Sport implemented? 
The Respect in Sport Parent Program is presented as an online curriculum and includes audio/visual presentations. 

What equipment is required to complete the program? 
All that is required to complete the Respect in Sport curriculum is a computer, an Internet connection, and speakers or a 
headset. Optional equipment includes a printer to print out your certificate of completion if required. 

What if I don't have a high-speed connection? 
The course is designed to be accessible from any computer using dial-up or high-speed internet. Once registered, the 
user experience is the same at any speed. 

What if I don’t know anything about computers? 
Through extensive research and development, the program was designed, first and foremost, to be user friendly. There is 
also an on-line “Help” feature and a toll free support line available. 

Is there a paper version of the program? 
No. Respect in Sport gives you ongoing access to the course once you've completed it, as an online resource. 

Is there a fee for this course and how long does it take? 
The course costs $12 + HST per family and takes approximately 1 hour to complete. 

What if I don't have a credit card? 
Respect In Sport uses PayPal for credit card payments. You can also set up a PayPal account and pay directly from your 
bank account or purchase with cash a pre-paid credit card to use with PayPal. If none of these options will work in your 
situation please EMAIL for assistance. 

Will Hanover Minor Hockey reimburse the cost? 
No. HMH will not be providing registration codes or issuing reimbursements. 

Do both parents have to take the course? 
No. At least 1 parent must take the course. Ideally we would like both parents to take the course. The course can be 
accessed multiple times allowing additional family members to view the content. 

Do I have to do it all at once? 
No. You can do it at your leisure, come and go as required. The program remembers where you left off and brings you 
back to that point when you next sign-in. You can even do it from different computers. 

What if I have already taken the Respect in Sport course to be a team official? 
You are still required to take the Parent version of the course because it has different content that is specific to parents. 

What if I have taken the Respect in Sport Parent program for another organization? 
You would need to contact the Respect in Sport help desk to have your certification number entered into the Hockey 
Canada registry for your children. 

What if I don’t complete the course by August 31, 2014? 
Your child will not be able to participate in MMH activities. Participation will be allowed after course completion.
