‘Respect in Hockey’ is one of the most important aspects of the sport that we love. The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is committed to creating a safe community for our membership through Respect training and strive to make hockey an enjoyable place for everyone.
Players, coaches, parents and associations can work together to create a positive and welcoming environment for all those who participate in hockey.
Respect in Sport | Activity Leader Course
Respect in Sport | Parent Program
Lacing Up Program
At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey in the OMHA is required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program as a condition of 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. Team Officials, On-ice Officials and On-ice volunteers will be required to complete the online Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program or in-class Speak Out! certification.
It’s important to remember that even though this is the off-season of hockey that Respect never leaves the sport.
