New OMHA Respect in Hockey Program for 2014-2015 Season -Parents MUST complete to register.
Submitted By bm on Tue 03 11, 14
At the 2013 Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s Annual General Meeting, the OMHA Board of Directors announced the OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective the 2014-2015 season. 

Effective August 31, 2014, the ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative will require all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education. 

For the coming season, Completion of the Respect in Sport "Parent Program" must be completed for at least one parent/guardian of each family of every registered player (under the age of 18) and shall be a condition of their eligibility for participation. The one-hour online course 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.
The program can be accessed through the OMHA website (www.omha.net). It is a one hour online curriculum with both audio and visual features that allows flexibility and does not have to be completed in one session.

“As the game of hockey continues to evolve it is the responsibility of us all to change with it – but more importantly, to be the agents for positive change.” said OMHA President, Rob Ring. “Ultimately, we seek to provide the very best programming, as well as a safe and enjoyable environment in which to enjoy all the positive opportunities our great game has to offer.”
“This program encourages positive behaviour, effective communication, and provides parents with valuable tools which can only enhance the enjoyment of our great game for all stakeholders,” commented OMHA Director, Development Programs, Ian Taylor. “Value-added programming such as this is one component of the OMHA’s ongoing commitment to our membership to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all participants.”
“It sets a standard of appropriate rules for everyone. And, it empowers good parents to be better,” said Wayne McNeil, cofounder of Respect in Sport.

COST:
$12 per family (one parent certified per family and other parent, step parents, grandparents, kids, etc. can take the program for free by using certified parent username and password).
