OMHA Respect Integration Implementation
Please follow the link to register and complete:
In an ongoing effort to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for our athletes in our great game, the OMHA has implemented a plan to ensure the OMHA is a complete Respect Integrated Organization.
The Respect in Sport Parent 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 all other stakeholders in the game. This portion of the program is one of the three pillars of our respect platform.
The Respect in Sport Activity Leader program is currently a condition of participation for all Team Officials (Bench Staff), and will be a requirement for all on-ice Volunteers and all on-ice referees (Age 16 and above), effective August 31, 2014.
TSMHA will be responsible for implementing these requirements as established by the OMHA and requires your support and cooperation with ensuring the completion of this certification.
During the 2013-2014 season, TSMHA implemented the Respect in Sport parent program as a requirement for participation in our Travel Program. For the 2014-2015 season and beyond, TSMHA has implemented the program across the association.
Effective immediately, a condition of registration of any child to TSMHA will be the completion of the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program by one of the parents. (At the time of registration, you will be required to enter a valid RIS number or ‘Speak-out Leader’ equivalent certification). This condition applies to ALL children registering in TSMHA regardless of Travel or House League program.
As registration opens, we recommend you complete the RIS program soon as it is a requirement prior to attempting to register.
Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment and success of your child, and all OMHA participants.
