Respect In Sport - Parent Program
As a condition of participation in the 2014-2015 season, at least one parent of all EMHA players registered with the OMHA are required to take the Respect In Sport (RIS) Parent program.

This on-line course MUST be completed by a minimum of one parent per family.  Don't delay. Non-completion of this course will result in your player(s) not receiving OMHA approval to play on any teams.

From the OMHA website:The Respect in Sport Program for Parents is a unique, in-depth 1-hour online program geared to providing parents 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

Moving forward as leaders in the game, the OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective the 2014-2015 season. Please take a few minutes to sign up and complete this now in order to avoid issues later.
