PrintRespect in Sport


"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 define a standard of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved.  Parent want to do a great job supporting their kids.  Respect in Sport provides parents with the tools to create and maintain Safe Sport environments." (Respect in Sport Group Inc., 2020)

Coaches must complete the Activity Leader program.  The cost is $30.00.  PWSA has negotiated a discounted rate for you. If you are a parent coach then you do not need to take the family program. However, we do require your partner/spouse to take along with your child.

Parents and the players must complete the “Parent/Player program”.  The $12.00 fee allows both parents and the children to take the course.  Please note – we encourage the parent to complete the program with the child.

Should you try to register and find your team is not in the drop-down list, please let us know and we will have them added.  If you have taken this course for any other sport or group, you can sign in and import your certificate number without having to take the course again.  This course is valid regardless of the sport.
