Respect in Sport for all age groups

Respect in Sport – Parent is mandatory for all players. In order to register your child for hockey, you must complete the Respect in Sport – Parent online course.

Important things to know:

  • You must recertify every four (4) years (parents, coaches, bench staff, everyone)
  • If you formerly completed the course and will be registering a child for hockey that has never participated in hockey before, you will be required to sign-in to the Respect in Sport website and add your child. This cannot be done by the EFHA and is the only way your child’s Hockey Canada profile will be updated with the Respect in Sport – Parent qualification.
  • If you completed this program in the past for another sport, you need to contact the Respect in Sport representatives to have the qualification transferred to Hockey Canada

Respect in Sport – Parent and Respect in Sport – Activity Leader are not interchangeable. The Parent course attaches to the player’s Hockey Canada profile and is required for player registration. The Activity Leader course is required for all bench staff and cannot be used for a player’s registration.

If you would like to update your RIS, check to see if your RIS is valid or transfer over your RIS from another sport please use this link: Respect in Sport for Hockey Canada Parents – Getting Started (respectgroupinc.com)

Your player will not be able to begin tryouts/evaluations until a current Respect in Sport is registered on your player’s Spordle account. If there are any issues, please contact the Respect in Sport Help Desk here: Respect Group Help Desk and FAQ
