ALL TEAM STAFF (Coaches, Managers, Safety Persons) must complete Respect In Sport – Activity Leaders by December 1.
Respect in Sport – Activity Leaders is an education program for coaches to assist them in the prevention of harassment, abuse and bullying in sport. The purpose of the program is to impact on attitudes, skills, and knowledge of the coaches that will result in a safe, sportsmanlike environment for all players, coaches, and parents.
RESPECT IN SPORT – ACTIVITY LEADERS RE-CERTIFICATION
Beginning in the 2017-18 hockey season Sport Manitoba has initiated a 5-year re-certification policy which applies all all coaches, managers and safety people who take the Respect in Sport – Coaches and Activity leaders online course. This means that for the 2018-19 season any team staff that completed their Respect in Sport any time in or prior to 2013-14 are required to retake the Respect in Sport – Activity Leaders online course. The policy has been put in place as a result of multiple changes that have been made to the Respect in Sport course designed to reflect the current climate. The course now includes more material regarding online harassment and cyber bullying as well as other needed updates.
With this policy change, Hockey Manitoba have also made the decision to no longer accept the Speak Out certification as an equivalent to the Respect in Sport online course. This means that any team staff that completed the Speak Out course in the mid 2000’s will be required to complete the Respect in Sport – Coaches and Activity leaders online course in the 2017-18 season in order to be properly certified by the December 1st coaching certification deadline.
Respect in Sport – Activity Leaders is only offered online and is a total of 3 hours in length.
The course consists of 6 modules, each 30 minutes in length.
