For Parents:

One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, officials, and athletes 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.

Some associations require all registrants to complete this course upon registration. Contact your local association to find out more.


For Coaches:

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.

This course is worth 3 PD points for coaches looking to maintain their NCCP certification.

Some associations require their coaches to complete this course as part of their certification process outside of the NCCP courses. Please contact your local association for more information.
