Respect In Sport
Submitted By Vicki Fenn on Monday, September 14, 2015
REMINDER that Effective August 31, 2014 at least one parent or guardian of each player/family registered with St. Thomas Minor Hockey and the OMHA will be required to complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program as a condition of their child's participation.



Even if you have completed the Respect in Sport as a Coach you will be required to complete the Respect in Sport Parent Education Program!

The Respect in Sport Program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and everyone else involved in the game. 

The in-depth 1 hour online program is geared to providing the parent with information on how to evaluate and understand:

  • Parental Influence over a child
  • Coach and leader roles in sport
  • Role of the Parent and Coach in ensuring a child's enjoyment of a sport
  • Protecting your child when outside of your immediate control
  • Concussion Awareness and Return to Play Guidelines
  • Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) Model

St. Thomas Minor Hockey will continue to update you on with the Respect in Sport Parent Program Information as it becomes available.

For further information on Registering for the Program please view:

Respect in Sport Parent Program Access Instructions

Remember - the game of hockey is for kids. Kids play the game because they love it and because it is fun. As parents we must all realize that, for kids, positive participation is always more important than excellence. The personal and social development that comes from being part of a team is one of the most enriching experiences offered by the game. We must continue to live the values of fun and fair play, respect, integrity and teamwork with a balanced perspective of expectations and definition of success. We must celebrate our good experiences with this great game.

YOUR PLAYER(S) CAN NOT BE ROSTERED TO A TEAM UNTIL THIS IS COMPLETED.

It’s about play! It’s all about family! It’s about us all having fun and being kids!
